There were many products broached upon during [email protected] 2022, these are the major announcements that were made during the runtime of the massive showcase.
The Predator Helios 300 SpatialLabs Edition Laptop
This powerful new PC may only run at 60Hz, but what it lacks in a strong refresh rate, it takes over with novel design choices. The new SpatialLabs Edition deploys the new stereoscopic 3D technology that Acer has been cultivating, with a remarkable focus on how these 3D images come to life. There are three front facing eye tracers designed to emulate interactive 3D imaging.
This new concept drags 2D screens to life in the 3rd dimension with the SpatialLabs technology and utilizes TrueGame, a SpatialLabs platform that provides gamers with a plethora of titles that can be utilized with this technology. Acer reports there are over 50 AAA titles already capable of utilizing these effects, and immerses the gamer like never before.

While the new Predator Helios was front and centre at [email protected] 2022, there were more affordable SpatialLabs displays announced with the Acer SpatialLabs View, and the Acer SpatialLabs View Pro.

ConceptD 500 desktops also have received the hardware upgrade treatment, as well. as the more compact ConceptD 100 desktop.
Acer Veriton Vero AIO Desktop
[email protected] 2022 placed emphasis on their more Eco-friendly designs as well, introducing a whole Vero series of products as companions to the already available Aspire Vero.

A new sustainable all-in-one desktop was announced as well, with the Acer Veriton Vero AIO. With the latest in hardware, and the 30% PCR DNA of the PC and its components, consumers can go green without going weak. Along with the desktop and new Aspire Vero laptop models, Acer unveiled two more monitors, a new viewing projector, and even mouse and keyboard peripherals with sustainability in mind. All of the Vero line of products feature the Earthion mission of 100% sustainability.
