A new type of light field display is proposed using a head-mounted display
(HMD) and a micro structure array (MSA, lens array or pinhole array). Each rendering
point emits abundant rays from different directions into the viewer's pupil, and at
one time the dense light field is generated inside the exit pupil of the HMD through
the eyepiece. Therefore, the proposed method not only solves the problem of
accommodation and convergence conflict in a traditional HMD, but also drastically
reduces the huge data in real three-dimensional (3D) display. To demonstrate the
proposed method, a prototype is developed, which is capable of giving the observer a
real perception of depth.
