So, we’re seeing companies continue to attempt expansions with the 3D technology, and while some swing and miss, others push things to new heights. While I can’t say exactly where Toshiba lines up for this next release, the Qosmio F750 seems to be poised to push things a little farther down the line. The glasses-free 3D visuals that the lenticular screen sheet offers up may or may not excite you, but ultimately, the concept should. After all, it seems that they’re really working toward getting rid of the glasses altogether. That should end quite a bit of inter-corporate bickering, no?
All market impact aside, let’s take a look at the innards. The F750 has an NVIDIA GeForce 540M graphics card, 640 GB hard drive, Intel Sandy Bridge Core i7 processor, and of course the ability to play Blu-ray discs through the XL drive. 6 GB DDR3 Ram should power this guy pretty good, but this isn’t the same concept that Toshiba was flaunting at CES with the GL1 3DTVs. Instead, a lenticular lens sheet is what delivers the 3D effect.
Many are going to be skeptical about this, but I think that we have to be careful to not focus on the wrong part of the story. The expansion of the glasses-free 3D experience will only fuel adoption of the technology. Is it perfected in this new unit? Probably not, but working out the kinks should help us get what we’re really looking for…a 3D experience without those silly glasses.
