Acer ConceptD 7 SpatialLabs Edition Laptop Uses Eye-Tracking to Display 3D Images

Acer just announced a slew of new products today, including the Acer ConceptD 7 SpatialLabs Edition. Its long name aside, this powerful mobile workstation is able to display 3D images without 3D glasses using eye-tracking – pretty impressive, right?

This is possible thanks to a set of stereo cameras that track the user’s eyes. The laptop then displays “two slightly different images through an optical lens that has been bonded to the screen’s panel, each refracted to a different eye,” as Acer describes it. This is done in real-time too, so you can move around and see a 3D image in…well, 3D.

Aside from this unique feature, the ConceptD 7 SpatialLabs Edition also features a 15.6-inch 3840 x 2160 IPS display (in 2D mode). In 3D mode, the screen’s effective resolution in 1920 x 2160 instead. It is also Pantone Validated with 100% coverage of the Adobe RGB colour gamut.

Other specifications of this beefy mobile workstation include up to an Intel Core i7-11800H processor paired with 32GB of DDR4 RAM (upgradable to 64GB), an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 GPU, as well as 2TB of NVMe SSD storage. All in all, a very capable laptop.

Of course, that also means it commands a premium price tag: the Acer ConceptD 7 SpatialLabs Edition will retail from a steep €3,599 (about RM17,330) in EMEA markets sometime in December 2021. No word yet on the Malaysian availability of this serious mobile workstation.
