Toshiba isn’t messing around, guys. After recently announcing that their new Satellite line of laptops will have a 3D webcam, they’re dangling another carrot in front of us. The DynabookQosmio T851/D8CR laptop will offer 2D and 3D graphics at the same time, on the same screen. Basically, they can have certain parts of content become 3D, while others remain in 2D. Imagine what this will do for all of those maze-scare vids that you trick your friends with. I still remember the first one that got me, and since, I’ve trusted nothing that my friend’s put in front of me.
While we don’t know how much content will pertain to this technology, expect it to stick. This particular model, however, will come at quite a price, much as we’ve seen with the first 3D TVs that don’t use glasses. The Japanese version of the Dynabook is all we’re playing with at the moment, but you can start looking for your unit in July.
The depth added through the 3D that most of see these days is beautiful, but the content actually coming at you should begin to help us fill out the concept. Gaming should reach new heights as this begins to expand. Explore, designers, please, please explore…
