Startup to unveil spherical 3-D monitor

The display, code-named Helios, was designed to allow users to view three-dimensional imagery in higher detail than traditional flat computer screens. Users can move around the display and view the images from any angle across 360 degrees.

The company said the three-dimensional imaging can be used for applications including molecular visualisation and medical imaging, as well as mechanical CAD (computer-assisted design), aeronautical and astronautical imaging in areas including air-traffic control and satellite positioning systems -- and of course, entertainment.

Actuality was formed in 1997 as a spin-off of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Entrepreneurship Competition.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
