Toshiba Qosmio F755 is World's First Glasses-Free 3D Laptop
Toshiba has just announced the world’s first Glasses-free 3D laptop, the Toshiba Qosmio F755 3D. Until now there have been an assortment of 3D laptops that have slowly trickled to market, but all of them have been the kind that requires glasses to view 3D content. Well that is all about to change with the new Toshiba Qosmio F755 3D laptop. That is because the F755 packs in a 15.6″ TruBrite display with Active Lens that uses auto-stereoscopic display technology. The display is able to simultaneously project two sets of images, splitting them between the right and left eyes, to create a 3D effect. Toshiba also uses the laptop’s webcam and face tracking technology to enable the projection of the image to accurately react to the motion and position of the viewer – and all of this works sans glasses.
But the glasses-free 3D tech isn’t the only trick up the Qosmio F755′s sleeve. Its display is also able show both 2D and 3D at the same time. That means that users can watch 3D content in a smaller window while performing 2D tasks in a separate window. Plus, its built-in Blu-ray player is also able to convert DVD and videos from 2D to 3D with one click.
Under the hood, the laptop is running on an Intel Core 7 processor, a NVIDIA GeForce 540M graphics card, a 750GB hard drive, built-in harman/kardon speakers, and it sports an HDMI-out port with support for a 3D TV display. The Toshiba Qosmio F755 3D laptop will be available in mid August for $1699.99.
