Devised by Dan Curticapean and his colleagues Andreas Christ and Markus Feisst of Offenburg's University of Applied Science, a new approach to high throughput VR on mobile phones is being born.

Virtual reality data sent by the server to a mobile phone can be visualised on the phone's screen, or on external display devices, such as a stereoscopic two-video projector system or a head-mounted stereoscopic display, according to a release of Optical Society of America. The information is provided either as stream (avi, motion JPEG) or as vector-based data (VRML, X3D).

The displays are connected to the mobile phone by wireless Bluetooth so the user's mobility is preserved. In order to generate stereoscopic views on the mobile display screens, a variety of means can be used, such as a built-in 3-D screen or using lenticular lenses (as in human vision) or anaglyph images viewed with special glasses having lenses of two different colours to create the illusion of depth.

The upshot of this new approach is improved realistic 3-D presentation, enhanced user ability to visualise and interact with 3-D objects and easier presentation of complex 3-D objects.
