To generate the effect, the laptop relies on lenticular 3D. The product’s two-lens cameras can track your head and eyes as you move around the laptop. The system then takes this data, and uses the stereoscopic 3D display to generate different angles of the image to each of your eyes, no 3D glasses needed.
To generate the holographic effect, the laptop uses a stereoscopic 3D display and eye-tracking cameras. According to Computex, Acer’s hologram-powered laptop will cost more than $4,000. Acer said today that the “ConceptD 7 SpatialLab Edition laptop” will start at €3,599 (or $4,150) when it first sells in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa in December. It will be released in North America next year. The laptop is distinguished by its stereoscopic 3D display and eye-tracking cameras, which help to create the illusion of three-dimensional objects on the screen.
We haven’t tried the product. But Acer says the effect is like watching objects float in front of the laptop’s screen. “Real-time rendering technologies allow this process to take place immediately —if a user rotates their head, the stereoscopic 3D image will adjust as if the user was looking around it,” the company said in the announcement. The PC maker is hoping the feature appeals to artists and engineers who might like to see their digital creations rendered in 3D. According to Acer, the display on the ConceptD 7 SpatialLab laptop can also revert back to a 2D screen for normal workloads.
The laptop also promises to work seamlessly next to a normal 2D external display. A user can create or edit the content on the external monitor and then view it in 3D on the ConceptD laptop. Check out the full specs below.
The laptop itself has a 15.6-inch 4K IPS screen. In 3D mode, the panel switches to a 1,920-by-2,160 resolution. Buyers will also be able to outfit the laptop with some high-end specs, including an Intel 11th generation Core i7 H-series processor, an Nvidia RTX 3080 mobile GPU, and up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM. On the software side, Acer says the laptop comes equipped with a suite tools capable of taking 2D digital images and transforming them into 3D content. “Support for all major 3D file formats lets creators convert their 3D models into stereoscopic 3D simply by importing them into the SpatialLabs Model Viewer, where they can also adjust lighting, textures, and HDRI backgrounds to find optimal presentation settings,” the company added.
