Asus ‘hologram’ laptop lets you see 3D imagery above screen – without VR goggles

Remember when the James Cameron film Avatar came out and everyone held onto the 3D glasses, thinking it would be the end of 2D films?

Well, while 3D glasses and films have both since died a death, 3D screen technology has advanced in leaps and bounds.

Nowhere is that clearer than with Asus' new glasses-free 3D OLED display, which lets you view images in 3D on your screen without the need for special glasses.

The technology, called 'Spatial Vision', was unveiled at CES 2023 yesterday, and could change the way we use laptops forever.

Spatial Vision will appear on two top-end Asus laptops to start, and allows users to switch between 2D and 3D images at the click of a button.

It works by using advanced eye-tracking camera tech which creates a 3D effect for each eye of the user.

It makes it perfect for watching 3D videos or activating 3D mode on videogames without wearing any bulky eyewear.

One of the first laptops to get the technology, the ProArt Studiobook 16 3D OLED, has a screen which can fold completely flat.

With 180-degree viewing angles, it means users can look at hologram-style 3D images from above the device.

It's unlikely that the glasses-free 3D laptops will be cheap, given that standard models in the same Asus laptop range run upwards of £2,600.

However, the technology could bring us one step closer to widespread glasses-free 3D displays. These could one day be used to beam 3D adverts at you in public—or even let you watch the next Avatar sequel at the cinema without glasses.
