How can hyperspectral projection enhance chromostereoscopic perception?

More Info


Chromostereopsis is an optical illusion that allows 2D images to simulate depth based on color. For example, red is perceived to be closer than blue, when displayed on a black background. This effect is present because of the slight chromatic aberration caused by the eye lens, and it can be strengthened by the use of ChromaDepth® glasses. This research looks into how the chromostereoscopic effect can be enhanced by precisely controlling the used color spectra by simulating the effect with the use of stereo projection. It was concluded that hyper-spectral projection can yield a stronger chromostereoscopic effect and better depth resolution of the image, but its full potential is still limited by the visible spectrum of light.
