HP Releasing a 3D Scanning and Projecting All-In-One

/ 2 years ago


Re/Code has just spread the word of a new HP all-in-one system that will be shown at an event in New York on the 29th of October.

Named “Sprout”, some interesting features are set to be included. As the title suggests, this all-in-one system will include a big flat screen display with touch input, and an assembly that doubles as a projector and 3D scanner. With the display said to be using expansive surface technology, similar to their Pavilion Touchsmart series. The projecting capabilities will be used to beam images towards the desk, allowing you to use your hands or a stylus to complete a range of graphical tasks such as re-sizing images, move objects things around or re-arrange colors. This projector also doubles as a 3D scanner, giving you the ability to add objects into your images by setting them down in the beam and scanning them into your projects.

No price has been mentioned as of yet as the ‘sources’, as per usual with leaks, are all unknown and not verified, but all shall be released in one week either way. Said to be released running a Windows Operating System, there have been rumors that Google’s ChromeOS may be a feature in the not-too-distant future.

Targeted towards big business and those with a little extra money to spend, can you see yourself picking up a similar device for your graphical tasks? What price do you think is suitable for this type of advanced technology? Either way, we’re really hoping it scans better than Kinect’s NBA 2k15 disaster – pictured below.
