Abstract

We present a 360° light field display to visualize 3D objects above the table-top screen, and provide a graspable and measurable virtual or augmented reality environment. The display is constructed by a spinning flat-plate deflected diffuser screen, a high-speed light field projector, and the user tracking and interaction components. A rearprojection light propagation is specially designed to reconstruct the light field. By calibrating this levitated light field to the physical dimension, and capturing user gestures, we enable multiple users mid-air interactions based on their virtual measurement perception.
