Acer’s SpatialLabs unit has adapted lenticular technology—the kind that lets tacky picture postcards switch between images to simulate motion—to give users of this laptop a unique visualization machine. Geared toward designers and developers, the laptop can take models developed in 3D computer-graphics software and make them appear to thrust forward from the 15.6-in. screen—no glasses required. Face-tracking cameras let the computer show a slightly offset image to each eye. “It takes a second to adjust to the user in front of it, but then the image pops to life, and their eyes widen,” Acer’s Eric Ackerson says.
