Device Enables New Scanning Cabilities

The Human Media Lab at Queen’s University announced the introduction of the flexible phone. Canada’s premier multidisciplinary media laboratories is the brainchild behind the Holoflex, capable of rendering 3D images with motion parallax and stereoscopy to multiple simultaneous users without head tracking or glasses.

HoloFlex features a 1920×1080 full high-definition Flexible Organic Light Emitting Diode (FOLED) touchscreen display. Images are rendered into 12-pixel wide circular blocks rendering the full view of the 3D object from a particular viewpoint. These pixel blocks project through a 3D printed flexible microlens array consisting of over 16,000 fisheye lenses. The resulting 160 x 104 resolution image allows users to inspect a 3D object from any angle simply by rotating the phone.
