Lenovo’s ThinkVision 27 3D Monitor

I don’t think I did this enough justice when it launched a few days so, I am revisiting the latest monitor from Lenovo. The company’s ThinkVision 27 3D monitor is a 27-inch screen that offers 2D/3D compatibility without glasses with 4K resolution and dual 99% color accuracy (DCI-P3, Adobe RGB). It uses a switchable lenticular lens paired with real-time eye-tracking to provide a 3D viewing experience. Unlike conventional monitors, it projects two independent images, ensuring each eye perceives the subject from a unique angle. This results in stereo vision and improved depth perception. The monitor also includes built-in speakers, USB-C docking, and support for a modular camera.

Complementing the hardware is Lenovo’s 3D Explorer software which is supposed to offer users an integrated platform for their 3D applications. It features a 3D player, support for various design software, and an SDK for 3D application development. Lenovo has indicated that updates will be rolled out to further enhance the 3D experience in the future. Obviously aimed at a professional user, the monitor will be available in February, 2024, and it should cost upwards of $3,000.
