Acer will release a new version of its previously launched Windows 8.1 Aspire V 17 Nitro gaming laptop with a built-in Real Sense 3D camera from Intel. The company announced the new model as part of its CES 2015 product reveals.
"Because the camera can understand and respond to natural movement in three dimensions, Aspire V Nitro owners will be able to interact with games, open web pages or navigate applications without even touching the notebook's keyboard or mouse. It also enables 3D scanning, 3D model generating and then printing on a 3D printer or sharing on social media. Several intuitive apps introduce new ways to interact in gaming, entertainment, and content creation."
"The Intel RealSense 3D camera includes a conventional camera, an infrared camera and an infrared laser projector. Together, they infer depth by detecting infrared light that has bounced back from objects in front of it. This visual data, taken in combination with Intel RealSense motion-tracking software, creates a touch-free interface that responds to hand and head motions as well as facial expressions."
"Acer V 17 Nitro notebook models include large 17.3-inch Full HD displays with IPS technology and are powered by a 4th Generation Intel Core i7-4710HQ Quad Core processor and the Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M graphics with up to 4GB DDR5 VRAM for full-tilt performance and smooth game play, and up to 16GB of memory. Speedy 128GB or 256GB solid state drives and up to 1TB of hard disk storage provide fast wake times and rapid access to files, movies, songs and photos."
The notebook will launch later in January, but a specific price was not revealed.
