The chassis uses 30% recycled plastic, the frame too, and the keycaps use 50% PCR plastic. It is possible to replace the RAM and the SDD by simply removing the screwed lower cover.

Like the packaging is also made from recycled materials, uses water-based ink and the boxes can be used to store toys or books, giving it a second life, instead of throwing it in the trash. And why not use it as a bed for a cat or a potted plant? Here is the manufacturer’s suggestion.

ConceptD range for demanding professionals

ConceptD is the professional line for content creators and demanding professionals. The Acer Spatial series promises to be a laptop designed for creativity, but also for various possibilities of 3D work, both for work and entertainment. It’s a technology that Acer has been working on, offering stereoscopic 3D without glasses.

It has a 15.6 inch screen and weighs less than 1.5 kg. You can choose to switch between 2D or 3D depending on the apps you are using. The new version now offers new possibilities for integrating external software, such as Blender and Maya, and others. Sketchfab offers over a million 3D models that users can use in projects by downloading the models.

It has options for VESA adapters, allowing you to adapt the computer to any surface, display case, etc. Your solution can be used in hospitals or stores, using 3D virtual assistants to interact with the public.

the line is consisting of ConceptD 5 laptop, ConceptD 500 workstation and ConceptD 100 compact desktop.All are equipped with 12th generation Intel processors and NVidia processors. The ConceptD 5 can have an optional 16-inch OLED display. The laptop starts at 3,399 euros, the workstation from 1,199 euros and the desktop from 999 euros.

Play in stereoscopic 3D without glasses

The partnership with NVidia guarantees pull technology from their integrated graphics cards in their laptops for use with Spatial Labs.

The technology enables 3D rendering, processing images as the producers intended them. The company says it already has an ever-growing library of tech-enabled games, currently counting 50 titles playable in stereoscopic 3D. The app localizes the game and applies the technology with one click, the company says. The manufacturer chose to choose games such as FPS, racing and action titles as the first to demonstrate the technology.
