Is 3D still a thing? We thought it once again went away after not even Amazon could pull it off with their Kindle phone but Asus still thinks the technology has potential.
Both laptops come with a 16-inch OLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate and, on top of that, some magic will happen.
That OLED panel is topped with a layer of optical resin, a glass panel, and a lenticular lens layer which will work in tandem with two eye-tracking cameras. That way, the images on your screen will adjust with your physical movements and, since there will be no crosstalk between the left and right eye’s image, the 3D content will look a lot more realistic.
Still, Asus does mention in their marketing materials that some users might experience “dizziness or crosstalk due to other reasons, and this varies according to the individual.” Because of this, they’ll offer free demos to potential buyers so they can see if 3D laptops are for them.
Asus envisions these 3D laptops not just as an entertainment tool to display any movie or game that supports 3D but for actual productivity purposes. According to the company, the Asus 3D laptops are designed with designers and architects in mind, people who work with and have to view 3D models.
To help them, the laptops will have a model Viewer, a Photo Viewer that transforms side-by-side photos taken by 180-degrees cameras into stereoscopic 3D images, and Connector, a plug-in designed to work with multiple apps and tools to display 3D projects.
