HP made a number of announcements for CES 2017 today, which included a pair of flagship convertible laptops, along with the all-new second-generation Sprout Pro, which the company says "now incorporates advanced technologies and new features that empower you to create highly visual content and interactive experiences by blending the physical and digital worlds."
The all-in-one PC now comes with a "hefty" Intel Core i7 processor, 1TB SSHD, up to 16GB RAM, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M GPU, and Windows 10 Pro.
HP also says that it has evolved the device's software to make it easier to "interact between Windows 10 Pro and Sprout’s unique HD resolution projector, touch mat and 2D/3D cameras." And while the first-generation model offered 2D scanning, the new one can perform 3D scanning by simply holding and rotating an object under the camera.
The company introduced the original Sprout back in 2014, and there have been very few similar devices on the market since, if any. With an overhead projector, it provides two separate touch environments, rather than a standard mouse and keyboard.
The new Sprout Pro is expected to be available in March in select countries.
