Tel-Aviv-based start-up Sightful s working on an augmented reality device called the Spacetop that will allow you to view your work on a virtual display wherever you happen to be. And for some, this might be the most exciting technological innovation for others, a pain. The world’s first AR laptop looks similar to the lower half of your laptop and features a keyboard, touchpad and soft cover.  What separates it from other laptops are the NReal AR glasses that come tethered to the system. Slip those on and you can view a giant floating screen right in front of you, no matter what environment you find yourself in. Sightful says the high-resolution display can span up to 100 inches. It will cost $2,000 initially, which isn’t that far from the star that far from the starting price of the top-of-the-line M2 MacBook Pro.
