Researchers in South Korea have created a new method that would allow moviegoers to simply sit down and start watching a 3-D movie with no extra gear necessary. The research was published Monday in Optics Express. “This is essentially the next step that was required for 3-D display technology without glasses,” said physicist John Koshel.
