CES 2011 countdown: Toshiba to show off glass-free 3D laptops?
It is no surprise that no one wants to wear those 3D glasses, and they are ugly! Toshiba seems to have realized this, and brings you its first 3D notebooks which do not need glasses.
The 3D laptop called Quasmio, which is only a prototype right now, has a special 120-MHz display that is supposed to give you an immersive three dimensional view. It has the most important webcam utility in the world that tracks your eye movement to make sure you’re viewing the correct part of the screen. Laptopmag demonstrates the viewing experience with a youtube video that clearly shows some promising 3D experience. Although the magazine says there were a few flickers here and there, it is a good start considering the fact that this technology is still in a nascent stage.
Talking about the looks of the Quasmio – the laptop comes with special electronics fitted behind the 120MHz display screen to make the technology happen. It has the standard keyboard layout (not chiclet) that stretches till the end on both the sides. The trackpad resides just below the keypad, slightly off the left.
Although it is only a prototype that Toshiba will show off during the CES, but there is every possibility of this technology coming to the market this year – and Toshiba surely hopes to be one of the front-runners.
