Spatial orientation comes to notebooks
The Xbox’s Kinect may not have set the world on fire like Microsoft ad hoped it would, but that isn’t stopping Acer from giving it a go. Launching as part of the company’s new notebook lineup being introduced at CES, Acer’s high end V 17 Nitro notebook has an integrated Intel RealSense 3D camera. Used to measure motion and depth, the V 17 Nitro’s will allow you to control compatible PC games in a very similar fashion to Kinect enabled Xbox games. Make a rowing motion with your arms to row your boat in-game – do a jumping jack and have your in-game avatar convince you you’re exercising – the possibilities are limitless.
Inside the rather eccentric looking gigantic laptop is all the latest and greatest specifications you might expect. You’ve got your quad-core 2.5GHz Core i7 processor, GeForce GTX 860M graphics card, 1TB of spinning disk storage alongside 128GB or 256GB of solid state storage, a high resolution 17-inch display, and more.
The Acer V 17 Nitro launches this month for an undisclosed sum of money, so keep an eye for more information. Acer also has a whole other lineup of new notebooks from high end gaming rigs to full blown workstation replacements, all of which you can discover at the source link below.
