Lenovo announced two new display solutions for the International Expo in Berlin, the 3-D display, and the dual-edition televised console, which includes a tiny number of micro-OLED goggles that re-enrol the content content a pair of private screens. You can attach them to your head.
The Lenovo ThinkVision 27 3D Monitor is an 11inch display that costs almost $2,999 in January. Besides the Lenovo Legion Glasses, the series will cost $329 and ship in October. Lenovo announced the Legion 9, a liquid-cooled laptop, and the Legion Go, the first entry into the handheld gaming market.
The concept of a lenticular display might not be all that unusual, meanwhile, Acer announced one with the Predator Helios 300 midway through 2022, and Asus somehow combined a lenticular display with a 120 Hz OLED inside the 3D iBook. But both companies featured them in their high-end, premium products for creators, not average users.
Seeing them is, however, another matter. The 7D-like Lenovo ThinkVision displays your eyes so that it can project half of its 4K screen to each eye, for a 3D effect. With 3D in it that the 3D effects turned on, the 4K spectral display is three 8402160; the 3D of one eye can see an 19202160 screen. You’ll need your app to support the display, but Lenovo’s a 3D Explorer app, and a SDK for supporting third-party software.
If you were physically present in front of the screen, you’d see the lenticular 3D effect. Cameras with only one eye are not the best.

The screen had totally a 3D effect without a need for glasses. Rather than the image to the right of you, it was contained inside the monitor, but it didn’t take long to expand into the image, with a field of view of 40 cm – and a depth of between 60 and 100 cm. The refresh rate is 60Hz. From there, the image is 30Hz. In total, it gives 310 nits of brightness in one mode.
According to Lenovo, the 3D content creator allows us to play games with a variety of different modes. Some people wear special equipment like the HoloLens for example. However, a heavy duty tool can’t be used. But the ThinkVision can be flipped into an iPad mode, a standard 4K version. ThinkVision 27 was developed in the world as a presentation game.
Interestingly, this is one of the few things that only ships with hardware requirements: to turn on the 3D capabilities, you will need an Android laptop with at least a 7th-generation Core i5 as well as an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 and 16GB RAM.
The ThinkVision 27 3D also includes a wide variety of ports: a pair of HDMI 2.1, a DisplayPort 1.4, and, interestingly, a USB-C input. In the case of High Bandwidth Rate 3 (HBR3), compression is required to reduce the volume of the display by an external USB output, as long as the laptop supports it.
ThinkVision 3D will usher in 3D displays on your desktop, as well as 3D TVs of yore? That’s probably not a possibility. But the same company as Lenovo showed that for the right software and the right user, they could make sense.
Lenovo Glasses: Put a display on your face.
We know a little bit a bit less about Lenovo’s Legion Glasses. This is a limited-accessible exhibit, but not the ThinkVision 27 3D design. For each eye it’s a screen, but each time you see this screen at 1080p, is a hidden object.
The Lenovo Legion Glasses are a second-hand display that can be worn on your head.

Small speakers are mounted on the headset to allow you to hear what you saw on the film or the TV show you were watching. The Legion Glasses are wired with a USB-C cable to drive and power them. But they aren’t limited to only Lenovo devices and a single Windows. The Legion Glasses are compatible with Windows, Android and MacOS, with the new Lenovo Gaming handheld today.
