The HP Sprout is an All-In-One with a Projector, 3D Scanner and Touch Mat

If manufacturers stuck to the traditional molds of what a product should do and be then we would be stuck in a very dark technological world. There would be no touch screen phones, no laptops, no all-in-one PC’s or any of the new things we see in today’s market. Today a new kind of all-in-one has been made public by HP, and, as you can see, it certainly doesn’t look like your typical all-in-one desktop PC.

The precarious contraption breaks the AIO mold of a keyboard and mouse, or simply just a touch screen, and adds in a 20-point multi-touch touchpad, touchscreen and a projector. The overhead projector arm also offers 2D and 3D object scanning to bring physical items to the digital world in a snap. You really need to just watch the video of what Sprout can do to get the gist of it all.

From a hardware standpoint the Sprout carries an Intel Core i7-4790s with Intel HD Graphics 4600 and NVIDIA GeForce GT 745a, 8GB 1600 mHz DDR3 RAM (upgradable to 16GB). a 1 Terabyte Sata 6G SSD and a 23-inch FHD WVA touch-enabled LED -backlit LCD display. Connection wise you get 802.11a/b/g/n/ac (2×2) Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, 2x USB 3.0 ports, 2x USB 2.0 ports, 1 HDMI, 1 Line out and 1 Headphone/mic combo. The HP Sprout camera system is composed of what they call the HP Illuminator which includes a 4 camera system. It packs a Intel RealSense 3D Camera, 14.6 MP high-resolution camera, HP DLP Projector and LED Desk lamp. The Sprout comes pre-loaded with a few specialty apps designed to take full advantage of the unique device and it sports 64-bit Windows 8.1.

The current unit is available for purchase through HP for $1899.99. Feel free to dig a little deeper on the HP Sprout on the dedicated webpage that HP created for it.

About Stormy Beach

I have been a tech nut for many years. Android has had a special place in my heart since it originally made its debut with the T-Mobile G1. Prior to that I sported a number of windows devices including the T-Mobile Wing. After I was married and we had our 3rd child, is when I really got into phones. Since then my passion for tech and has grown into somewhat of a monster. Always looking for something that I haven't seen a million times everywhere else. Always looking for things that will benefit me, my family and people long term, not just for the few short months they have a certain device. I don't claim to know everything, but one of the best parts of tech is, and always will be, learning as much as possible.
