The three screen cinema with the 270 degree view

Technology which uses a cinema screen's three walls to produce a 270 degree viewing experience has been developed at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST).

The Screen X system uses a small number of inexpensive projectors allowing it to be installed in cinemas anywhere in the world.

The technology has been available for a few years, but has mainly be used to show commercials because designing films for the format creates additional challenges and expenses.
