Introducing Spacetop: The world’s first Augmented-Reality Laptop

What is Spacetop?

Spacetop is a revolutionary device that combines a screen-less keyboard deck with a pair of AR glasses. It was announced by an Israeli company called Sightful in May 2023. The AR glasses are customized Nreal glasses that are hardwired to the keyboard deck. When you put them on, you can see your desktop projected into the space in front of you. And you can operate it with the keys and touchpad, just like a normal laptop.

  • Weighs 3.3 lbs (1.5 kg) without the AR glasses (the glasses add an extra 0.2 lbs).
  • The AR glasses have a 2K resolution and a refresh rate of 60 Hz with a visible field of view of about 52 degrees diagonal and a peak pixel density of 42 PPD
  • Native passthrough and an HD video camera for capturing your surrounding

What are the benefits of Spacetop?

Because the laptop requires a special pair of goggles to see the screen, it prevents unwanted attention from nosy people.

What’s the catch?

While Spacetop promises a world of exciting possibilities, it’s important to acknowledge some limitations:
• Laptop has a narrow field of view that may make you feel claustrophobic or dizzy when using it for long periods of time.
• Spacetop relies on web or cloud apps, which means you can’t run native or offline apps on it, such as games or software.
• The product has a short battery life of only 5.5 hours (estimated), which means you have to charge it frequently or use it near a power outlet.
• With a high price tag of $2,000, Spacetop may be too expensive for most consumers who are looking for a laptop.
• It requires you to wear AR glasses all day, which may not be comfortable or convenient for everyone.

The augmented-reality laptop represents a significant leap forward in human-computer interaction. Revolutionizing the way we work, learn, and entertain ourselves. As this technology evolves and becomes more accessible. We can expect further advancements and expanded use cases in the near future.

Summary

Spacetop stands at the forefront of innovation, pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in computing. With its immersive AR capabilities, powerful hardware, and versatile software, this device is poised to transform the way we perceive and interact with the digital world, unlocking new realms of productivity, creativity, and enjoyment.
