Toshiba has been leading the industry with a number of 3D gears and glasses-free 3D displays. The company just made their Qosmio X775 3D laptop available for purchase last month. And now they have progressed with their 3D technology, rolled out the world’s first glasses-free 3D laptop, called Toshiba Qosmio F750, which is slated to come sometime next month.
The display of the Toshiba Qosmio F750 is based on a lenticular lens sheet, which allows slightly different images to be seen by the left and right eye separately, thus forming the 3D images in the user’s brain.
The laptop is also equipped with a HD webcam which also doubles as an eye tracking device to ensure the 3D images sent to the user’s eyes are precise.
Other hardware specs of the Toshiba Qosmio F750 are an Intel Core i7 Sandy Bridge processor, a 640GB hard drive, 6GB DDR3 RAM, nVidia GeForce 540M graphics, a Blu-ray XL optical drive, WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, two USB 2.0 ports and one USB 3.0 port.
The Qosmio F750 has a screen size of 15.6 inches and comes in dimensions of 380.55 x 254 x 37.6 mm. But it’s not as portable as you think due to its weight which weighs at 2.8kg.
The Qosmio F750 was tested by those folks at Engadget, who performed pretty stringent tests on the laptop’s eye-tracking webcam. The webcam was claimed to be fast enough to catch up with their “rigorous” movements but the 3D effect was slower to catch up with their movements. Apparently, you’ll need to sit still and are advisable not to move too much while watching 3D on this laptop. This sounds like the laptop isn’t suitable for 3D game plays as most players will surely move their head or body while they’re excitedly immersed in gameplays.
The Qosmio F750 will be available from August 2011, and it’ll likely be priced around $2,100 USD. A clip is included below.
