Creator this, workstation that. These are words we use all too often when talking about laptops and portable devices today. However, when was the last time that a company really pushed the envelope beyond a powerful processor and quality display? Foldable displays? They’re still on their way to the mainstream, but the idea of a laptop that offers a 3D workspace? Now that’s something we can get behind.
With the release of the ASUS ProArt Studiobook 16 3D OLED (H7604) and ASUS Vivobook Pro 16X 3D OLED (K6604), ASUS is foreshadowing the next step forward in display technology for laptops. Devices that feature groundbreaking glasses-free 3.2K 120hz 3D OLED display technology.
In an industry-first announcement, the brand is calling the tech ‘ASUS Spatial Vision’. In short, it’s the world’s first glasses-free (autostereoscopic) 3D OLED technology that offers 3D experiences on a laptop – without glasses. More than a simple gimmick? Of course, we strongly believe it has the ability to completely change creator workflows where CAD design and engineering models can now be viewed in 3D directly on the screen without needing to 3D print physical prototypes. They also offer the potential for rapidly expanding metaverse applications.
So how does it work? ASUS explains that “The glasses-free 3D technology is made possible using a lenticular lens and advanced eye-tracking camera technology, enabling the display to weave distinct images for each eye, resulting in an autostereoscopic 3D image.”
Ever seen those 3D billboards that have made the round on social media? Well, that’s autostereoscopic 3D imaging.
The tech integrates with the exclusive apps in the ASUS Spatial Vision Hub, which offers 3D videos and movies, 3D games, and 3D model visualisation for creators. ASUS also partnered with Dimenco to offer SR (Simulated Reality) with supporting materials and guidelines to equip developers with unlimited potential by covering gesture control, interactive learning and more.
Most importantly for us, you can seamlessly switch between 2D and 3D.
In terms of devices, the top-of-the-range ASUS ProArt Studiobook 16 3D OLED offers a 16-inch display with a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, a 0.2 ms response time, and a 120 Hz refresh rate for display on top of the 3D capabilities. It’s powered by a 13th Gen Intel Core i9-13980HX processor, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 Series Laptop GPU, and features up to 64 GB of upgradeable memory.
