This paper describes in detail the design, development, and evaluation of the TWISTER III (Telexistence Wide-angle Immersive STEReoscope) and demonstrates how this system can display immersive three-dimensional full-color and live motion pictures without the need for special eye-wear. The device works as a cylindrical display by rotating 30 display units around an observer and presenting time-varying patterns, while immersive autostereoscopic vision is achieved by employing a "rotating parallax barrier " method. After explaining the principle, we discuss the designs and implementations for maximum performance in various aspects of the display. We also evaluate the display.
