The Toshiba Qosmio X500 has a great reputation as a gaming laptop, but it has just taken an extra step and introduced some seriously cool updates. It now enables you to view movies and play games in 3D, and you can display 3D footage on a compatible TV via the HDMI interface.
What’s so exciting about this is the face mapping software they’ve introduced, to give you glasses free 3D which uses eyeball tracking to give you the perfect picture. The software utilizes the built in webcam to map your eyes to nose ratio, and using this they make sure that however you move you always get the perfect picture. Details and images of how this works are a little vague, but you can see the picture above for an idea of how this functions.
They’ve also created a cool function that I like to call ‘3D upscaling’ which will render 2D content into 3D viewings, using the Toshiba Video Player 3D software. This will hugely expand your DVD library, by allowing you to view classics in a whole new way.
The laptop uses the second generation Intel Core i7 processor to enable multiple application use at fast speeds and features 8GB of RAM.
The updated laptop will be available from the end of January 2011. Price TBA.
