CES is a global consumer electronics and consumer technology tradeshow that takes place every January in Las Vegas, Nevada. Now, while a lot happened, lets directly jump into the products that matter on CES – day one.
1.Intel Compute Stick (2016)
With mostly the same look and feel, except the addition of length to the chassis, the newer version comes with Core M3 and Core M5. The 6th generation processors are promising a much better processing power which was a problem in the previous generation. The device has 802.11ac wireless networking which is much faster and then it has 2×2 antenna arrays and Bluetooth 4.2. There are three USB ports too in the newer version. All three models support 4 GB or RAM and 64 GB of storage.
2. Carl Zeiss Optics
Carl Zeiss has managed to make a smart-glass which doesn’t look like smart-glass at all, which actually is the point! Zeiss isn’t worrying about the computer hardware, displays or software that might run on a future pair of smart glasses. Instead, the company has figured out a way to project a heads-up display onto a curved lens not bothering about the tech and hardware involved in future smart glasses.
3. Chevrolet Bolt
Finally, Tesla gets steamrolled, it may not be Mercedes-Benz or Audi; it may not be Apple; it may not even be Faraday Future. It might be Chevrolet. With around 200 miles of cover in single charge, the Bolt surely is ground breaking! Chevrolet engineers have developed a flat battery pack for the car that sits in the floor, much like that found in the Tesla Model S. It’ll be priced around $30,000 and will surely be a hit!
4. Kyocera DuraForce XD smartphone
This Android device sports a 5.7 inch display and is built to handle drops, dunks, dust, vibrations and water, which is what its IP68 and Military Standard 810G certifications represent. It is also designed to handle high altitudes, low pressure and humidity, and supports Enhanced Push to Talk, a walkie-talkie like feature. With this toughness and impressive specs., this device will surely be mouth watering for many users out there.
This is basically an Alarm clock which has innovative features which makes you wake up in the morning on a fresh and pleasant mood. With the sweet smell of coffee, mint, croissants or even bacon and mind refreshing sound, this device promises a good wake-up every morning.
6. LG E6 4K OLED TV
An absolute beauty is what I’d call it. Sporting a 2.57 millimeters in depth, this TV is actually thinner than the image itself! The OLED screen displays vibrant color and deep blacks. The addition of HDR Pro, LG has vowed that the picture will be brighter, bolder, and more immersive than ever before. It totally rocked the CES 2016.
7. Samsung curved 98-inch 8K TV
While most consumers are still just barely getting used to the idea of a 4K HDTV, Samsung has brought a 8K TV! It certainly was a show off, but it gave us a glimpse of the future and the technology that Samsung has been developing. The future is certainly looking bright, and crisp.
8. Razer Blade Stealth
The Razer Blade Stealth is a 12.5-inch ultrabook that will start at $999, which is their cheapest and smallest laptop yet. The base model fits a super high-definition 2,560×1,440-pixel resolution touchscreen display, a Core i7 processor, 8GB of memory and 128GB of solid-state storage into a light 2.75-pound unibody aluminium frame. More expensive variants of the device come with a 4K screen and up to 512GB of solid-state storage.
9. Samsung’s TipTalk
This is what Samsung claims to be a “Smart Strap” for traditional smart watches which lets you take calls by pressing your finger into your ear like some kind of kids’ make believe fake phone game has become reality. Certainly a nice add-on for your old smart watch!
10. Samsung’s Portable SSD T3
The device will come in 250GB, 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB varieties. One of the major improvements is that the T3 is a durable piece of work. The fear with the T1 was largely that the device seemed to be a fragile piece of equipment. It is making the external drive a truly portable solution for anyone with lack of storage.
