HP Introduces 3D-scanning PC with Projected Second Screen, Heralds the New Era of Computing

HP used to be the brand name that leads the way in innovations, but somewhere along the 75 years in existence, they seem to have lost it. Now, it is set to get back on the innovation track, starting with this futuristic 3D-scanning PC with second projected screen called Sprout. Even the product name is a huge departure from the company’s usual naming practices, but beyond namesake, it is essentially a Windows 8 desktop PC (Windows 8.1 64, to be precise) that boast a dual-screen creative console with a built-in projector that will cast a second screen on a mousepad-like surface, a touch-enabled display and the said 3D scanner. Sprout falls under HP’s Blended Reality ecosystem with the aim to offer an advanced desktop computer with “immersive, natural user interface” that will provide users with a whole new computing experience.
