Of course, my fellow interns and I were first in line to get in on the immersive experience. The inside of the truck was lined with Sprout by HP computers and a Dremel 3D printer – made by an HP partner – along with a cabinet showcasing some of the objects the Dremel 3D Printer created using the detailed scanning capabilities of the Sprout by HP.
One of the onboard experts gave us a hands-on demo, showing us the versatility and multitasking capabilities of the Sprout by HP. They even encouraged selfie-taking with the 14-megapixel camera and artmaking with the free, downloadable LightStencil app.
One of the most interesting features we saw was the integrated Touch Mat, which is synced with an overhead projector and camera system. This combination of technologies allows users to capture images of physical objects, both in 3D and traditional 2D, and then manipulate them with special software.
It’s a step up from the the traditional computing experience, with greater interactivity like projecting a virtual DJ setup that can be played, or capturing physical items for digital scrapbooking. Users are only limited by their imaginations.
