The proposed technique uses a combination of two systems, viz. a three dimensional stereoscopic system and a two-lens system. This novel combined system successfully produces a stereoscopic floating image in mid air near the observer. The two-lens system produces a floating image from the stereoscopic image originating from the stereoscopic system, and the two lenses eliminate the defects of the floating lens and concave mirror. The experimental results show that the two lenses eliminate the defects of the lens and the concave mirror, so that the proposed system successfully produces a touchable stereoscopic floating image.
