THE “NEW” COMPUTERS IN 3D

You can get a 3D laptop from Acer for only $70 more than their standard $700 laptop. Before we get too crazy about this new “gee whiz,” co-columnist Bob Schwabach out that he saw his first saw 3D computer at Argonne National Laboratory 35 years ago. They were called Evans and Sutherland displays, cost a couple hundred thousand dollars each, and were the size of a small refrigerator. The Acer 5738 DG laptop is intended mainly for gamers, and is much smaller than a refrigerator. You have to look at the screen at a 120-degree angle, however, or it’s blurry. ASUS also sells 3D laptops and Sony is working on one. Sony also plans to sell a 3D camera that will let you create your own 3D content.
