LAS VEGAS – The annual Consumer Electronic Show (CES) held in Las Vegas is in full swing. As expected; a variety of new or improved high-tech gadgets are on display, particularly in the camera division.
But there are also some surprises in store for techie buffs. Here are six of them:
1. Bendable Screen:
Sitting in the couch sideways eyeing the screen and can’t really see the picture? The ‘bendable TV’ is the solution to that problem. Offering a curved screen, this TV allows viewers to see the picture, regardless of what angle their viewing it from.
The TV, produced by Samsung and LG Electronics is ideal for watching movies. The 105 inch TV won’t fit in most living rooms however and is more than double the size found in most homes today.
2. Home and Garden Drones:
The applications for drones has been exploding lately. Even Amazon envisions using drones to deliver goods to consumers. Why not then use drones at home to do chores?
AR.Drone, produced is France, is just that; a drone/robot combo designed specifically to help with house chores and yard work. Introduced by Parrot, the drones can be instructed what to do using a smartphone interface.
3. Tennis Racket Sensor:
Developed by Sony, this racket measures the flexibility of a player by means of a sensor installed on the bottom of the racket handle. Each time a player swings the racket, the sensor tracks the movement. The data can be downloaded to the internet or can be tracked by smartphone with Bluetooth interface. The sensor is intended to help a player improve his swing.
4. Enhanced Digital Cameras:
Digital cameras are nothing new at CES and each year there are plenty of ‘enhancements’ offered. This year, Sony and Panasonic introduced each a camera capable of shooting 4K resolution images .. that’s as crisp a photo as the naked eye sees it.
Panasonic increased the visibility by adding a second lens to the camera that rotates, allowing you to make ‘cut-aways’ from the scenery while shooting the picture.
5. More Efficient Dishwasher:
Introduced by Samsung, the DW80H9970 doesn’t use conventional rotating arms shooting water upwards or downwards anymore. Instead, this dishwater uses the ‘water wall technology’, which moves back and forth in the dishwasher much like a scanner, thereby making better use of the water and soap and leaving the dishes much cleaner.
6. Chip-sized Computer:
Intel, the chip manufacturer, introduced a memory chip-sized computer that despite the miniature size holds a processor, storage memory and internet access.
Intel says this ‘mini-computer’ will allow virtual anything to be turned into a rudimentary PC.
The CES is ongoing until January 10th. Each year, manufacturers from around the world come together in the ‘city of sin’ to introduce their latest innovative technology and entice consumers with new gadget modifications and features.
