Spacetop G1 Augmented Reality Laptop

The best way to be productive on the road is a laptop. The smartphone is great too but it is too small. Folding phones offer more screen real estate but may not be enough. This is where tablets can fill the shoe, offering the screen real estate without the bulk. But alas a tablet is never a full-fledged laptop. Enters Spacetop G1.

Spacetop G1 is a laptop but it does not have a screen. Instead, it has a pair of augmented reality glasses as the screen. This means it has less bulk than traditional laptops. The AR glasses offer up to 100” canvas for you to work with—much more than any laptop can offer, and the best part is that it is strictly for your eyes only. No more worrying about nosy fellow travelers, coworkers, cafe users, et cetera, peeping at the million-dollar contract you were poring over on the airplane, workplace, or cafe.

The Spacetop G1 Augmented Reality Laptop is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon QCS8550 featuring KRYO CPU, Adreno 740 GPU, dual eNPU V3, 48 INT8, and 12 FP16 TOPs. It has 16 GB LPDDR5 RAM and 128 GB UFS 3.1 storage. The chipset, along with the memory type and storage, makes this thing feel more like a wearable smartphone with a keyboard. Maybe it is? But it does not run on any kind of smartphone or tablet OS.

It runs on the first spatial OS designed for productivity, dubbed SpaceOS. Also differing from smartphones and tablets is that it has more than one USB-C port—or two, to be precise. And the ports are fast too, providing up to 10 Gb/s transfer speeds. The device is powered by a 60 Wh battery good for up to 8 hours of use on a single charge and it comes with a 63 W dual-port USB-C adapter.

The display, i.e. the glasses, meanwhile boasts 2x OLED display panels that offer 1,920 x 1,080 resolution per eye with a refresh rate of 90 Hz. The AR glasses support the use of custom prescription lenses. So, no, unfortunately, it can’t go prescription-free like some AR eyewear.

Other highlights include Wi-Fi 7, Bluetooth 5.3, 5G and 4G LTE radios, a built-in 5 MP webcam, eSIM support, nano-SIM card slot, 79 keys full-sized US keyboard, and a trackpad that supports multi-touch gestures.

The Spacetop G1 Augmented Reality Laptop is not a fantasy tech. It is a device you can order now. It is available to reserve for a refundable 100 bucks deposit. The Spacetop G1 has an introductory price of US$1,700 (U.P. US$1,900). It is expected to start shipping in October 2024. There is a catch, though. It is available in the U.S. only for now.
