Looks to capture the creative market.
I admit, I came here hoping for a PC in the shape of a brussel sprout - and was slightly disappointed. However, the HP Sprout is quite cool, though looks like it's going to be a tad expensive.
I'm guessing in the £2k region, since it's $1900 in the US and we always get shafted. If it's £1500 I'm buying one!
It's even got HDMI out so I can keep running a two screen + touch screen set up, although I'm not sure that projected touch screen can truly replace a Cintiq, the shadow of your hand would be a bit of a trade off. But it won't suffer from the floaty pen syndrome Cintiqs have, which could make the shadow moot.
Me too! That 3D scanner, the possibilities. You could pair it up with a 3D printer, and replicate anything you scanned in, just like a Star Trek replicator Seriously though, I love concept PCs like this. It makes me think that we're already living in the future.
Looks pretty cool and responsive, though I wonder how much of this was real content. Also, I don't understand why they couldn't just separate the projector, scanner, and scanning area. I feel like they're restricting their audience by forcing it to be merged with a pre-built PC. The product is nifty and could be useful long after the computer becomes obsoleted.
In french "prout" is an equivalent to "fart". Make me think of something like S-Prout <--> Super Prout
Cool device though and nice idea. Just can imagine customers asking for that name in stores
The funny thing is much like a fart, if nobody is around to notice when it happens, it'll eventually disappear as though it never happened. That, and Brussels sprouts are known to make people very gassy.
So you might be onto something.
Separate names with a comma.
