We propose a compact head-worn 3D display which provides glasses-free full motion parallax. Two picoprojectors placed on the viewer’s head project images on a retro-reflective screen that reflects left and right images to the appropriate eyes of the viewer. The properties of different retro-reflective screen materials have been investigated, and the key parameters of the projection – brightness and cross-talk – have been calculated. A demonstration system comprising two projectors, a screen tracking system and a commercial retro-reflective screen has been developed to test the visual quality of the proposed approach.
