HP Introduces Sprout, a New Desktop Computing Experience for a Complex World

By: | November 1st, 2014

IndustryTap has reported on 3D Modeling with Hand Gestures and The Rise of Virtually Design Products in which companies like Elon Musk’s SpaceX have cobbled together software leading to completely new, 21st Century, design and manufacturing techniques.

Now, Hewlett Packard (HP) is taking steps to make this type of working environment available to the masses.

Merging Physical & Digital Worlds

In New York City this week, HP unveiled a new hybrid computer it calls Sprout that includes a large “touch” flat screen display, a touch enabled work surface, a projector and a 3D scanner that form a novel work environment that should help users be more productive and creative.

Sprout is a platform that will give rise to an app ecosystem and will be expanded as new technology becomes available that improves the working environment. The expected market for Sprout is business, primarily enterprise, customers who must interact with clients or customers to demonstrate products and services and to integrate user input into demonstrations.

Sprout will run a Windows operating system, but future versions could include other operating systems.

There is not information yet on Sprout’s retail price. For a quick look at the system, see the video below:
