With a less expensive laptop, Acer is introducing its glasses-free 3D screen

Acer is adding a new 15-inch Aspire laptop, priced at $1,400, to its SpatialLabs lineup for CES 2024.

That is precisely the kind of thing you would anticipate seeing at CES 2024 on some extravagant, futuristic concept device; however, this 3D laptop will be available for purchase next month for about the same price as a 15-inch M2 MacBook Air.

To be fair, a laptop costs $1,399, which isn't insignificant, especially given that's the beginning price. However, in comparison to other Acer SpatialLabs devices, it's quite inexpensive. Acer first debuted its 3D technology, SpatialLabs, on the ConceptD laptop for creators and later on the Predator Helios 300. The staggering prices of those laptops are $3,500 and $4,000, respectively. Since this is the first SpatialLabs laptop in this price range, more artists, developers, and creatives may use the platform.

Using two image sensors in the top bezels, Acer's SpatialLabs stereoscopic 3D technology tracks the location of your head and eyes. Your brain interprets the distinct, nearly identical 2D images that each eye sees as 3D. Reduced entry costs could encourage more people to explore 3D entertainment and creative endeavors. For example, realtors may find it useful to convert CAD files into more palatable 3D models for potential home buyers.

Together with developer tools like the SpatialLabs Unity and Unreal Engine plug-ins, it also supports Acer's OpenXR platform.
