Have you ever wanted a 3D scan of yourself without the hefty price tag? Acer thought you did, so they included an Intel RealSense 3D Camera in their Aspire V 17 Nitro Notebooks. With the Intel RealSense 3D Camera, users will not only have the option to 3D scan themselves, but will also be able to interact with games, open web pages and navigate applications without ever touching the keyboard or mouse.

“Acer believes three dimensional computing offers unlimited potential for both professional and consumer uses,” said Jerry Kao, President of Acer Notebook Business Group. “Business applications include 3D modeling, mapping and architectural design, while the most popular consumer uses will likely include augmented reality gaming, and simple PC navigation and control.”

The RealSense 3D camera includes a conventional camera, an infrared camera and an infrared laser projector. All three work together analyzing depth by detecting infrared light that has bounced back from objects in front of it. The visual data collected then works with Intel RealSense motion-tracking software, allowing you to use hand and head motions, and facial expressions to control applications and games.

The Acer V 17 Nitro notebook models come with a large 17.3-inch Full HD display, powered by a 4th Generation Intel Core i7-4710HQ Quad Core processor and a Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M graphics with up to 4GB VRAM, and up to 16GB of memory. Choose from 128GB or 256GB solid state drives and up to 1TB of hard disk storage.
