Toshiba, whose American operations are headquartered in Irvine, is launching a new laptop to display glasses-free 3D and 2D content at the same time. The new Qosmio F755 3D laptop also allows users to switch back and forth between the dimension options.

“The Qosmio F755 3D laptop is not just a breakthrough in mobile entertainment, but a great example of Toshiba’s ongoing commitment to turning technology innovation into real, usable products,” said Carl Pinto, vice president of product development, Toshiba America Information Systems Inc., Digital Products Division.

The technology used to create a 3D affect without glasses involves the laptop projecting two sets of images at the same time, separating the images for each eye, therefore creating 3D images. In addition, the laptop’s Face Tracking technology utilizes its built-in web cam to help maximize the quality of the viewer’s experience.

The laptop is 15.6 inches and has an HD TruBrite display. The laptop will be available in August for $1,699.99 MSRP.

 “We are excited to bring this cutting-edge technology to consumers, as there’s really nothing like it,” said Pinto. The unique capabilities of the laptop’s 3D display make enjoying 3D content both convenient and hassle-free.”
