Toshiba unveil World's first glasses-free 3D laptop

By: Array

Toshiba have paved the way with their new Qosmio F755 which is the world's first laptop capable of delivering glasses-free 3D and 2D content at the same time on one screen. The Qosmio F755 3D laptop sports the latest in auto-stereoscopic display technology, equipped with a 15.6-inch full HD TriBrite display with Active Lens technology, the double parallax image display is able to project two sets of images at the same time, splitting them between left and right eyes to create the 3D effect.

Toshiba also includes their Face Tracking technology which uses the in-built webcam to perfect the projection of the image by reacting to the motion and position of the user, which delivers a broad viewing zone from which to view 3D content. The result? Glasses-free 3D goodness. As the only laptop of its kind to offer simultaneous viewing of both 2D and 3D content on the single screen, it provides users with the option to watch 3D content in a full-screen or condense it to a smaller window, preserving the 2D desktop to browse the Web or do other tasks.

Acer soon to release ultra-slim, MacBook Air-like 13.3-inch Aspire 3951

By: Array

As learned today through a web leak, Acer has an ultra-thin 13.3-inch laptop in the works that is said to be hitting the market in October. Falling under the Aspire line-up, images of the Acer Aspire 3951 show a very sleek, tidy looking unit that weighs in at around 1.4Kg and is only 13mm thick. It sports all-aluminum casing which houses a 2nd-gen Core/Sandy Bridge platform.

From what we have to go on at this time, it looks to be arriving with a 500GB HDD (or optionally a 160GB SSD), HD webcam, 2-in-1 card reader, 802.11/b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 3.0 and HDMI ports and a battery lasting over 6 hours.

 

With pricing said to be ranging between $770 and $960, it could well prove to be quite the popular attraction against the MacBook Air for XMAS buyers.
