Close-up of the screen used in the glasses-free 3D viewing system designed by the French inventor Pierre Allio. Called alioscopy, the system is similar to other 3D displays in that it uses two overlapping images to make the brain see a three-dimensional image. Instead of glasses being used to view the results, the optical part of the system is the television screen. It is the rippled surface of the screen (seen here) that combines the two images, forming the desired 3D effect.
