ZollyMonsta: Anything to do with TVs. There's got to be something more exciting than curved screens and 3D coming...


3d has come and gone with noone giving a crap. I'm more wanting to see higher framerate stuff supported on tv's, All very well having a 240Hz panel, but its useless when its all made up from 60fps on the HDMI. Bring on the 4k 240Hz displayport and stuff!

Im hoping there will be some real 4k media players announced, ones that actually have HDMI 2.0, render the UI in 4k so text isnt all blurry and have a decently fast CPU to push all that out. Been disappointed in all the android ones I have tried that claimed 4k support. Web browsing on them was a horrible experience.


Try Shield TV.

Rappelle: Super keen to hear about anything VR related!


This. Everything VR please!


Reminds me of a PR press release I got a few weeks ago -

"VRTIFY, the first of its kind virtual reality music platform. VRTIFY transforms how listeners enjoy their favorite music by enabling them to select a song of their choice – from their personal playlists or apps like Spotify or YouTube – then choose a tailored virtual environment to enjoy it in. Imagine listening to “Walk like an Egyptian” among the pyramids in Cairo. Users can also utilize VRTIFY’s VR channels or attend concerts in real time for a truly immersive experience"

Yeah nah.



I actually don't mind the sound of that!

networkn: Heh if anyone is up in the USA and has a little spare space in their bag, I have a couple of items I'd really love to get here without paying stupid money for shipping :) 



If it's something that can be purchased in a store I'm happy to bring it back. It's going to be too late now to get anything shipped to my hotel in Houston and in Vegas I'm staying at an Airbnb apartment so doubt there is any way to get parcels delivered unless I'm there.



Thats incredibly obliging of you :)  Good stuff.

I would be interested to know how long it takes you to find something completely new. A product that makes you think "Wow, I wasn't expecting that!"
And breakthroughs in home automation.

Also, when you wander down the Strip in LV, how many Elvises, Marilyns, Batmen and guys with signs saying "Kick me in the nuts for $20" you see😃.

Home automation & security seems to be a big thing. I've had a lot of emails from companies with products there.

From what I have been reading, Samsung are expected to 'Go Big' this time, with items from their own version of the 'Skunk Works'. Could be an interesting stand to visit.

I'm in LA now and will be driving to CES next week. Have a few vendor presentations to attend but hope to spend some time on the show floor. Having been many times before I am a bit apprehensive about all the new door security including metal detectors and part downs!

Going to slow things up a bit.

Saw quite a few stands in the malls selling them and kids riding on them in the mall. I would not have thought that would be allowed. Not something that I would buy :-(

sbiddle: Rather than post in all the various forums I'll just start with one post in here -

I've just written a blog post about my trip next week to CES. My plan is to try and get a blog post out each night* with some of the cool stuff I've seen.

Since there are plenty of you here who would no doubt love to go but can't, I'll open it up to some suggestions of things that you want me to look at or ask some questions about. If there is a product or company you want to know more about then post it here and I'll see what I can do.

* = May not quite be each night depending on the availability of free beer. smile 



Can please: 

Check out the "Light L16" ? Apparently, they won't have a booth. Oh. 

 

  • 1/6-1/9 *CES - Las Vegas, NV. We will not have a booth. Please email us ortweet us if you'd like to meet up.


Also anything to do with VR video creation would be much appreciated. :-)
