Video projectors are rapidly shrinking in size, power consumption, and cost. Such projectors provide unprecedented flexibility to stack, arrange, and aim pixels without the need for moving parts. This dense projector display is optimized in size and resolution to display an autostereoscopic life-sized 3D human face. It utilizes 72 Texas Instruments PICO projectors to illuminate a 30 cm x 30 cm anisotropic screen with a wide 110-degree field of view. The demonstration includes both live scanning of subjects and virtual animated characters.
