Product Specifications

Sharp PC-RD3D is the world's first notebook PC equipped with an original 3D LCD that requires no special glasses to see 3D images and can be easily switched between plane (2D) and solid (3D) display modes. This allows the PC to offer dynamic 3D display for using 3D content and for preparing 2D documents and spreadsheets like on a normal PC. The futuristic notebook PC is offered for application software and content developers as well as companies considering its use for business purposes. Solid (3D) display allows dynamic reproduction of spatial positions of an object, and is expected to work as a futuristic display technology ushering in a new world of digital images that deliver life-like experience unaffordable with 2D display for versatile purposes, including CAD and other design applications, medical care, education, entertainment, advertising, broadcasting, and electronic books. A built-in high-performance Intel Pentium 4 microprocessor 2.8 GHz and NVIDIA GeForce 4 440 Go graphics chip provide an environment to draw three-dimensional digital images smoothly. Users can actually experience 3D display performance through preinstalled 3D content display and preparation software and sample content.
