HP has unveiled a powerful and innovative new immersive computing platform today that comes with Windows 8.1 and a Natural User Interface (NUI) experience that lets you physically interact with the digital world. I haven’t seen an All-in-One before that is quite like this…
Sprout by HP has a unique desktop All-in-One form factor that includes a vertical 23-inch 20-point multi-touch display and a 20-point capacitive touch mat that lets you capture, create, move, and manipulate digital content with your hands. This touch mat can serve as a keyboard too (although it ships with a wireless keyboard and mouse as well).
It also includes a capture and projection system – the Sprout Illuminator – that combines multiple devices such as a scanner, a depth sensor, high-resolution camera, and projector into a single system. It has a HP DLP projector built right in. It has a four-camera sensory system that includes a high resolution camera with up to 14.6 megapixel resolution and the Intel RealSense 3D Camera for instant capture of 2D and 3D objects. This system can capture and project dimensional images. That’s really cool.
It also includes Adonit Jot Pro stylus with incredible accuracy with a magnetic attachment that allows for easy storage on the Sprout by HP monitor.
So let’s take someone who does a lot of work with 3D models for example, or simply wants to try their hand at working with 3D content. With Sprout by HP, this person could take a physical model, or any physical object, they may have created and use the Sprout Illuminator to capture it using HP 3D Snapshot. They could manipulate the 3D image within HP’s Create app or transfer to a 3D modeling application where they could edit the image further. They could even project this 3D image with the Sprout Illuminator or collaborate in real time with friends or colleagues from anywhere, via HP MyRoom.
On the inside, Sprout by HP is built for performance. It comes powered by a 4th generation Intel i7 Processor, 8GB of memory, and NVIDIA graphics. It also has plenty of storage with 1TB.
Sprout by HP will be available in the U.S. for pre-order on October 29th and in select retail stores on November 9th starting at $1,899 (U.S.), including select Microsoft Retail Stores nationwide. You can now check out the Sprout by HP in select Microsoft Retail Stores right now!
Sprout by HP really does give creators a new way of interacting with both physical and digital content. For more information on Sprout by HP visit sprout.hp.com.
