Spacetop, An Augmented Reality Laptop Computer

With over 17 years of writing experience, Jonathan has had a passion for all things tech-related, ever since watching Inspector Gadget as a child. He's disassembled countless appliances and managed to put a few back together, and one still works. When not writing, he can often be found playing video games or accidentally hurting himself in the garage.

The Spacetop G1 from Sightful is a laptop designed specifically for working in augmented reality. It has a keyboard for typing and housing its electronics and a pair of XREAL Air 2 Pro AR for viewing your 100″ AR workspace. I’m into it. Whatever keeps my nosey coworkers from being able to see my screen and find out I just play solitaire and minesweeper all day.

“We introduced Spacetop to free people from the constraints of time and space, as we don’t believe people should be stuck in 14″ screens. We firmly believe in the power of AR glasses as the first step. Physical reality has always been the limiting factor – bulky, uncomfortable headsets, limited battery and processing power, and a world that is not yet built for daily AR. This is why we collaborating with the world leading companies to deliver the most delightful product, and what we see as the world’s best laptop.” — Sightful CEO and co-founder, Tamir Berliner

The 3.1-pound unit will be available later this year for $1,900 and comes standard with “a Qualcomm Snapdragon QCS8550 processor, 16GB of LPDDR5 memory, 128GB of UFS 3.1 storage, 5MP webcam, WiFi 7, Bluetooth 5.3 connectivity, support for 5G Sub-6 GHz as well as 4G LTE network bands, a nano SIM card slot / eSIM, and a 60-watt battery good for up to 8 hours of use on a full charge.” Eight hours on a full charge? Not bad, but I was really hoping to LIVE in augmented reality 24/7 and become a part of the Matrix.
