CES is just over a week away, and Samsung is already teasing a TV set they say will change the face of TV FOREVER. Now that everyone and their grandmother knows Apple is working on its own game-changing TV, every electronics company on the planet is trying in some way to beat Apple to the punch, and Samsung thinks this magical TV of the future might be it.
Yesterday, we showed you the mind controlled TV set OF THE FUTURE from Haier, and today we’ve got this spiffy virtual holographic television set from TCL. Screw wearing 3D glasses… this TV set offers up a 3DS-like inset holographic glasses-free TV, so it’s like having all your porn in a little living shadowbox.
A while back, when I first mentioned the Asus Transformer Prime quad-core tablet, I was wowed by its coolness, but also said, while adjusting the onion on my belt, something like “What do you need all those cores for on a tablet? You’re gonna play Skyrim on it or something?” Well, about that…
There’s lots of new TVs at CES this year, mainly of the thin and smart variety, but one company, Haier, is showing off a television set you control with your mind. Yup… fuck having a remote or any of that other old tech shit. In the future, TV will work just like Gozar the Destroyer… you think about something and it becomes manifest to destroy you.
Nintendo showed up at CES yesterday with the Wii U in hand, showing it off for the second time, this time, letting the press get their hands on it for the first time and clearing up some questions that had been lingering in the air since the Wii U’s unveiling like a stale fart.
At CES, who wants super thin TVs or tablets or netbooks when you can have motorized shoes? Similar to strap on roller skates, you wear SpnKiX over your regular shoes and use a handheld remote to propel yourself up to 10 miles per hour. Walking is so 20th century.
Even though Origin has been selling 5.2ghz gaming PCs for a few months, they decided to step up at CES with a blazing 5.7ghz PC as well as an angry new design for their EON gaming laptop. Angry laptop!
Nokia’s coming back to the US market in a big way in the next couple months with the super sleek Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone 7 mobile. It’s not as big or as powerful a WP7 phone as the HTC Titan II, but it’s incredibly stylish and was built from the ground up to work with Windows mobile.
Diablo III may not be coming in February, but something almost as exciting is (sort of whooo). Clear out some space in front of your PC, because on February 1st, Kinect will be available for Windows. Solitaire with a sweep of the hand, PowerPoint with a wag of the ass, spreadsheets with the wink of an eye.
Not content with coming out with an awesome-looking gaming laptop, Razer announced today at CES that it’s also working on a gaming tablet, right now called Project Fiona. The tablet is unique among its brethren in that it combines the functions of a tablet and a gaming console controller, so no more swiping at the screen when you should be pushing buttons.
It’s about time Sony got back to the business of making really sexy electronics. At CES, they showed off the newest phone in the Xperia line, the Xperia S. Wooo baby, you single?
Right now, anyone can buy a 3D printer if you have deep enough pockets for both the printer and the materials. Or you can use a service like Shapeways, but it’s still not cheap. Cubify not only is offering a relatively cheap 3D printer ($1200), but a whole 3D printing community that will allow you to share and sell programs, apps, blueprints and printed items. Sort of like an Etsy for 3D printer people.
