Acer to build 3D screen into laptop

Home entertainment system coming this autumn

Acer plans to release a laptop featuring a 3D display this autumn, according to Digitimes.

Designed to ride a recent surge in movies and TV shows filmed in 3D, the 15.6in-screen laptop will have built-in software that can correctly display 3D movies but also convert regular 2D movies into 3D, Campbell Kan, vice president of Acer's mobile computing unit, told the Taiwanese newspaper.

Acer won't be the first to offer 3D-enabled laptops. In 2003, Sharp released its Actius RD3D notebook with nearly identical 3D rendering capabilities.

The Actius RD3D was targeted at biotech researchers, car designers and architects. But even within that specialised business audience, it did not appear to catch on widely and was discontinued.

The Acer laptop, apparently aimed at a consumer audience, may have a better chance to catch on.
