Back in 2014, HP unveiled the original Sprout all-in-one, which was a unique desktop PC that combines a projector with a camera that turns the surface between you and the display into an interactive space.
Today HP unveiled a new version of the Sprout at CES 2017, called the Sprout Pro G2, HP says that they have completely redesigned it with a higher resolution projector, a more powerful processor, advanced 3D scanning, and a more accurate precision active pen integration for drawing compared to the previous model.
The Pro G2 also features a 23.8-inch display along with a larger 21.3-inch touchpad. This “Touch Mat” is basically a touchscreen that supports up to 20 simultaneous touch points, allowing you and a friend to use all of your fingers to draw objects.
Sprout can also scan items with the projector and Touch Mat combo, simply place then on or above it and then it will get scanning. You can also do the same for documents and images.
In terms of specifications, the new Sprout Pro features a seventh generation Intel Core i7 processor, a NVIDIA GTX 960M GPU and a newly improved active stylus.
Of course, to get some of those great features, you will need compatible software, which HP will be expanding upon over time, and they will also be releasing a “profession” SDK to allow developers to also create some new apps for the system.
HP hasn’t revealed details on the pricing or the availability for the HP Sprout Pro G2, but as soon as we know, we will let you know.
