Where imagination becomes reality

ELF-SR1 Spatial Reality Display

SONY Special Reality -

Discover a new visual medium.

Sony’s Spatial Reality Display leverages industry-leading high-speed vision sensor technology to enable a glasses-free, high-resolution 3D modeling, and visualization experience. Using the Unity or Unreal Engine SDK, creators can develop VR, AR, and other types of content and bring this content to life using the display.

Authentic viewing in a 3D display

Content extends deep within the display from any viewing angle. Simply moving around—up or down, side to side—makes you feel like you’re interacting with the content right in front of you.

Advantages

Unique in configuration and brimming with proprietary technology, the Spatial Reality Display empowers you to see what could never be seen before. For designers, researchers and content creation professionals, the benefits can be profound.

High-speed vision sensor

Sony’s proprietary high-speed sensor follows eye movement down to the millisecond, sensing pupil position through space on all three axes: vertical, horizontal, and even depth.

Real-time rendering algorithm

The Spatial Reality Display leverages an original algorithm for processing real-time content for each eye without lag. This allows the 3D world to appear as smooth as in real life, even if you move around.

Micro-optical lens

The micro optical lens is positioned precisely over the stunning 15.6-inches (diag.) LCD display. This lens divides the image into the left and right eyes, allowing for stereoscopic viewing with just the naked eye.

Automotive design

Car companies are recognizing the potential of this technology. “At Volkswagen, we’ve been evaluating Sony’s Spatial Reality Display from its early stages, and we see considerable usefulness and multiple applications throughout the ideation and design process, and even with training,” commented Frantisek Zapletal, Virtual Engineering Lab US, Volkswagen Group of America, Inc.

Industrial design

Spatial Reality represents a completely new way for designers to preview their 3D creations. After working with a prototype, product designer So Morimoto said, “When I check my designs, I often change the angle of light to check the texture. I naturally tilt my head while I’m looking at things and what is amazing is that this display precisely reflects those natural movements.” Product designer and mechanical engineer Tatsuhito Aono said, “Even when working remotely like between Tokyo and Shanghai … we could share designs with this kind of presence.”

Architecture

Architects are constantly striving to communicate 3D concepts. “This really feels like a step toward remotely communicating in shapes and being able to send ‘things’ to many different people,” said Keisuke Toyota, co-founder of noiz, an architecture practice in the Meguro section of Tokyo.

Game development

Compatible with the Unity and Unreal Engine platforms that so many game developers are already using, the Spatial Reality Display is a natural fit for both conventional 2D and VR projects. You can readily evaluate 3D attributes without leaving your work environment.
