You can capture and share life in 3D with Acer’s SpatialLabs Eyes camera

Acer has launched a new camera that can take 3D photos and video. It can also livestream in 3D. The SpatialLabs Eyes Stereo Camera is designed to integrate with Acer’s SpatialLabs monitors and laptops. You can also view its 3D content on AR and VR headsets, as well as 3D projectors from other manufacturers.

What is SpatialLabs?

SpatialLabs from Acer is a glasses-free 3D solution. The technology uses eye-tracking, a stereoscopic 3D display, real-time rendering, and AI technologies. Acer also makes gaming laptops and a standalone monitor with SpatialLabs 3D displays. There are more than 50 top games that support SpatialLabs 3D including “Fallout 4,” “No Man’s Sky” and “God of War.” In addition, you can use SpatialLabs for 3D modeling with programs such as Maya and Blender.

SpatialLabs Eyes

With the SpatialLabs Eyes Stereo Camera, you can capture and view stereoscopic images in immersive 3D. The camera is compatible with all of Acer’s SpatialLabs suite of devices. Acer says that the camera’s intuitive setup enhances shooting experiences with carefully calibrated lens alignment. In addition, SpatialLabs Eyes features an advanced optical system to photograph subjects with greater 3D depth and detail.

Camera specifications

The SpatialLabs Eyes Stereo Camera features 8 megapixels per eye resolution and a built-in selfie mirror. You also get auto and touch focus capabilities as well as Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) for smooth and steady footage. In addition, there’s a manual mode that gives more control of ISO, white balance, and shutter speed settings.

Capturing 3D content

The SpatialLabs Eyes Stereo Camera captures videos and still images in 3D. It also supports real-time 3D streaming. You can share your 3D content live on YouTube and other streaming platforms with the new Acer SpatialLabs Player 3.0. In addition, a SpatialLabs video call widget is launching in Quarter 3. This enables high-resolution 3D video conferencing on apps such as Teams (1080p), Zoom (720p) and Google Meet (1080p). The app features customizable depth settings to add more layers of realism during calls.


The SpatialLabs Eyes Stereo Camera outer material is glossed with a shale black coat. The lens cap and selfie mirror enclosures are also layered with aluminum lining which Acer says gives “a sophisticated look and feel.” The camera has earned the praise of design experts and received the prestigious 2024 Red Dot and iF Design Awards. In addition, the SpatialLabs Eyes Stereo Camera has a weatherproof exterior, so you don’t need to worry when you take it out and about with you.  

What we think

The SpatialLabs Eyes Stereo Camera is an interesting entry-level 3D camera. It packs a lot of features into a small body and at a relatively low price. The camera also offers a great way for creators to add a unique, new angle to their content. In addition, the option for 3D video conferencing could be useful for online product demonstrations. If you have a compatible AR/VR headset or 3D projector, the SpatialLabs Eyes Stereo Camera is a fun option to create your own 3D video.

Pricing and availability

The Acer SpatialLabs Eyes Stereo Camera will be launched in the US in Quarter 3 of 2024. Prices will start at $549. Europe, the Middle East and Africa will also get the camera in Quarter 3, costing from 549 euros.
