Toshiba Qosmio F755 notebook offers glasses-free 3D

Toshiba Qosmio F755

Toshiba is upping the ante in entertainment notebooks, announcing its new Qosmio F755 3D notebook sports auto-stereoscopic display technology that enables users to experience 3D content without those awkward, bulky 3D glasses. Moreover, users will be able to display 3D and 2D content at the same time on the same display.

“The Qosmio F755 3D laptop is not just a breakthrough in mobile entertainment, but a great example of Toshiba’s ongoing commitment to turning technology innovation into real, usable products,” said Toshiba America Information Systems’ VP of product development Carl Pinto, in a statement. “We are excited to bring this cutting-edge technology to consumers, as there’s really nothing like it.”

The Qosmio F755 will feature a 15.6-inch display that uses double parallax image display to send two sets of images at the same time, splitting the display between the right and left eye to get a 3D effect. The system uses the notebook’s built-in webcam to detect the position and motion of the user and tune the image display to their distance and position. As a result, the display can handle both 2D and 3D content at the same time: users can view 3D games, images, or video full-screen, or condense it down into a window and work in a 2D app at the same time. Toshiba has also bundled in “one-click” 3D up-conversion for 2D content, so users can watch their existing Blu-ray or DVD 2D content with 3D effects.

Under the hood, the Qosmio F755 packs a punch with a second-generation Intel Core i7 processor, Nvidia GeForce 540M graphics, and a 750 MB hard drive. The system sports HDMI output for pushing content to a big screen (the sans-glasses 3D thing won’t work there), along with harman/kardon audio and a built-in Blu-ray rewriteable drive.

Toshiba says the Qosmio F755 will be available mid-August at prices starting at $1,699.99.
