If so, we invite you to reconsider your perspective, and take a look at this mind-blowing glasses-free 3D gaming laptop. The Helios 300 SpatialLabs Edition is truly the first of its kind, a gaming laptop with a stereoscopic 3D display, bringing your favorite AAA titles to life in full 3D glory.

Sounds appealing? Well the Predator Helios 300 SpatialLabs Edition is a game changing, powerful, and stylish laptop that’s ready to hurl your gaming into the third dimension! Read on to discover all you need to know about the glasses-free 3D gaming revolution!

What, exactly is SpatialLabs?

Acer SpatialLabs view series displays are a next generation technology featuring built-in immersive stereoscopic 3D for both gamers and creators. You may have heard of the groundbreaking Predator Helios 300 SpatialLabs Edition, or perhaps the Predator SpatialLabs View 27 monitor at CES 2024. If not, fear not, before we dive into the tech-specs of the Predator Helios 300 SpatialLabs Edition, let’s cover the innovative technology behind Acer’s glasses-free 3D gaming.

SpatialLabs works by combining an LCD lenticular lens overlay on the screen with state-of-the-art eye-tracking technology. In practice, what this means is that the SpatialLabs technology creates a pair of images, and by tracking where your eyes are, projects each of the images to the location of each of your eyes. So, while you’re gaming or viewing images, the tracking camera communicates with the display, offsetting each of the two images to add depth, delivering a glasses-free, totally immersive, consistently smooth 3D gaming experience.

Aside from gaming, the stereoscopic display is the perfect tool for creation. Next-gen shading and driver tech lets you render games in true-to-life depth, while AI assistance accelerates conversion: machine-learning models enable fully automatic conversion of 2D to 3D, all in real-time. And, no, you don’t have to stay as still as a statue while you’re playing, or working, the cameras track both eye and head movement, so you can move about a bit without compromising the quality of your gaming or creation.
