Toshiba unveils glasses-free 3D laptop, one-ups 3DS

This isn’t fair. We just bought a new laptop.

According to Engadget, Toshiba’s portable entry into the glasses-free 3D race could be turning your eyes to mush by the end of the year. It’s a laptop called the Qosmio, which – among other things – includes head-tracking technology in an effort to create “dead-zone free stereoscopic 3D images.” In other words, wherever your head goes, the 3D effect follows.

However, Engadget also cautioned that Toshiba’s little computer that could is still “very rough around the edges.” Here’s hoping Toshiba decides that slow-and-steady wins the race instead of rushing the Qosmio to primetime.

    Now that is freakin amazing. If someone will make a 3DS emulator, then thats going to be pretty sick playing games on that thing.

    Pretty revolutionary.

    Anyone remember a post of me saying it’ll quickly spread to laptops & be the perfect fit?

    Apple will probably elbow it into the next iPad, too.
