Year after year, Acer fortifies its place as one of the leading brands in the market. With groundbreaking innovations and stunning aesthetics, it’s easy to see why many fall in love with the brand’s technologies. Here, we take a look at all the goods Acer announced at the IFA 2017 press event in Berlin.
For pet lovers, Acer announced Pawbo’s expanded pet care portfolio that consists of brand new trackers and smart treat dispensers. As a wholly owned subsidiary of Acer, the Pawbo products announced are no exception to Acer’s technological legacy. The three products announced were: Pawbo iPuppyGo, a lightweight tracker that’s able to monitor and track pet activity levels and wellness; Pawbo Wagtag, a cloud-connected collar for dogs that tracks their location and monitor the environment around them; and Pawbo Munch, a smart treat-dispenser. Paired with the Pawbo+, it enables owners to interact with their pets face-to-face or remotely.
Providing an all-in-one solution, Acer announced two new connected 360-degree cameras packed with features that enable flawless video capture. The Holo360 is capable of capturing, viewing, editing, and sharing video, all in just one device, while the Vision360 in-car camera connects to the cloud and shoots 360-degree video for a driving experience with a peace of mind.
Also announced at the IFA 2017 were Acer’s two new projectors that offer stunning 4K resolution. For homes, there’s Acer’s VL7860 , the world’s smallest 4K UHD laser projector.

One of the products that echo Acer’s legacy for reliable devices is its Chromebooks. The Acer Chromebook 15 is no exception to this legacy.

The Acer Aspire S24
The Acer Aspire S24 is an entirely innovative desktop that blows away ordinary desktop computing.
