Spacetop: Notebook mit virtuellem 100

Spacetop: Notebook mit virtuellem 100

[19:42 Fri,19.May 2023   by ]    

The idea is actually impressive: what if you replace the always too small screen of a laptop with a virtual display via augmented reality (AR) glasses? This has several advantages: the screen becomes independent of the size of the laptop and much less space is needed to work - a small area for the laptop as a keyboard is sufficient. Similar to foldable smartphones, this should resolve the contradiction between the smallest possible design for maximum mobility and the largest possible display for maximum usability.


Another advantage, in contrast to physical displays, is the absolute privacy of the displayed content - no one but you can see what is currently being shown on the virtual screen - practical for confidential or very personal communications or documents.

Sightful, a startup founded by two Israeli engineers who previously worked at mixed reality specialist Magic Leap, has now made this vision a reality: their so-called Spacetop AR laptop doesn&t have a screen of its own, but uses lightweight augmented reality glasses from Nreal to create a virtual 100" screen whose windows seem to virtually float in space in front of the user. The resolution of the two displays of the AR glasses is 1080p per eye with 72 Hz refresh rate - according to initial tests sufficient, for a sharp display of all content. It is operated by means of the integrated keyboard including touchpad.

By means of the built-in acceleration sensors, the glasses automatically detect head movements and can thus always show the virtual display at the same position in space even when the user changes position - just as if it were actually standing there. Since it does not move with the head, it is also possible to view different parts of the screen by tilting the head. The display also zooms in when you lean closer and zooms out when you move away - then you get an overview of all open apps and tabs. This intuitively conveys a physical reality of the virtual screen, which feels more real than a simple AR display that moves with every movement of the head and thus seems to be attached to the head.


For example, a classic external monitor can be connected via two USB-C ports to show others something on the screen. However, the power of the integrated battery is only enough for 5 hours of operation despite the saved display and the relatively large weight. A pair of headphones is integrated into the glasses, so the audio also remains completely private. Very practical for eyeglass wearers is the possibility to use lenses with the right prescription - so you don&t have to awkwardly put the AR glasses over your own glasses to be able to view the environment sharply.


Weighing 1.5kg and measuring around 10.5", the Spacetop augmented reality laptop costs ,000 and uses a Snapdragon 865 with 8GB of RAM and 256GB SSD as its SoC. A proprietary operating system, christened Spacetop OS and presumably based on Android, allows web-based applications that have been specially adapted to the system, such as Zoom, Gmail, YouTube, Microsoft Word/Teams, Google Workspace or Figma, to be run directly. The Spacetop will first be shipped to 1,000 early adopters starting in July, who are expected to provide feedback to improve it and then bring the Spacetop to market in a new version.


There have been several attempts to use classic VR glasses as monitor replacements (such as Meta Quest), but for many users it is uncomfortable to isolate themselves so completely from the outside world. The Spacetop solves this problem by using AR (augmented reality) glasses, which superimpose the virtual display onto the normal field of view - keeping you connected to the outside world. In addition, the new AR glasses weigh only 106 grams and look more like somewhat massive sunglasses than a clunky VR set.


A first review from The Verge sees potential in the new solution, but also problems: only a part of the theoretically 100" large display can be seen at any given time, and the head has to be swiveled to look over the entire desktop area - the whole ent
