It’s a screenless ‘laptop augmented reality’ tabs projected across a 100-inch virtual screen, laptop if you can call it that – a hardware surface and a full-size keyboard with a pair of custom NReal glasses, and the Spectacles project tabs appear right in front of anything It is seen by the user while remaining invisible to anyone else.
Specs-wise, the Spacetop runs the Snapdragon 865 paired with an Adreno 650 GPU, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage, which puts it in the same category as some smartphones that are already capable of driving augmented reality glasses. The size of a smartphone at 1.57 inches high, 10.47 inches wide, and 8.8 inches deep, and weighs 3.3 pounds, which is about the same as many laptops, according to the Engadget report.
It is clear that Sightful is looking for great success in the work-from-home or anywhere market. “Laptops are a cornerstone of our everyday work lives, but technology hasn’t evolved with the modern era, work from anywhere, privacy issues, and the ‘road warrior’ mentality.
Meanwhile, augmented reality is full of potential and promise but its everyday use case has yet to be found, said Tamir Berliner, Sightful co-founder who previously worked on both Leap Motion and Primesense. “We’re at the perfect moment for a major paradigm shift in a device we all know and love.”-
Right now, Spacetop is only available for purchase to the first 1,000 users through an app-based program, and at the moment we don’t have any information on how much that will cost you, or when you’ll be able to get it, but we’ll be watching this project with interest to see if He would have succeeded as many others had.
