HoloTabletop is a low-cost holographic-like tabletop interactive system. This system analyzes user’s head position and gaze location in a real time setting and computes the corresponding anamorphic illusion image. The anamorphic illusion image is displayed on a 2D horizontally-located monitor, yet offers stereo vision to the user. The user is able to view and interact with the 3D virtual objects without wearing any special glasses or devices. The experimental results and user studies verify that the proposed HoloTabletop system offers excellent stereo vision while no visual fatigue will be caused to human eyes. This system is a great solution for many interactive applications such as 3D board games and stereo map browsing.
