The idea behind LUMII is the result of years of our research at MIT:

 

We’re replacing traditional optics with algorithms, to create high-quality, glasses-free 3D experiences.

 

We’re enabling a new class of 3D display surfaces made using readily available hardware components - no lenses, and no special fab required. The Lumii Light Field Engine accepts 3D models and computes a set of unique patterns. By printing these patterns and stacking them in front of a backlight, they emit a multi-view light field:

 
 

We're currently developing a web interface to allow designers to create their own light field prints. If you are interested in this service, sign up to be the first in line when it's available:
