Driving Experience Technologies Explosion!

At the 2019 CES event, there were plenty of eye-dazzling demos and displays that can make your head spin.  It's known that CES is a gigantic show spreads across multiple convention centers.  At the Las Vegas Convention Center, the main exhibit venue, we witnessed a wave of driver experience enhancement technologies.  They range from full experiential control of the cars in every aspect of it, as well as hologram display on dashboard to experience in-depth outer world.  Also it shows that design has taken over technology to give the final frontier of personal emotion responses to driving a huge boost.  It's an endless array of different school of thinking solving similar areas of problems.  They are exciting and innovative.  That's what CES is all about!

        

Audio and Visual Battles

The 8K TVs are the darling of the TV world nowadays.  It's becoming consumer level products and various consumer technology companies are vying for a piece of it. Sharp has produced a touch screen 8K TV that is actually fun to work with.   This interactive capability can transform the usage of TVs from one-way viewing only, to become a portal of contents providers, be a cable company, or a web site, or even a senior parent, to users in front of the TVs.
 

Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality Have a New Life

Many times, we scratch our heads, asking why these are the technologies that existed for many years, but yet getting the big spotlight this year.  Granted the virtual reality is becoming more main stream, especially with the gaming application to it.  There are still questionable use of the technology as well as repackaged older technologies to become augmented reality use. 

We have seen eye-glasses size display for decades, and now we are finally seeing them working with physical world integration. However, all the demos we've seen are more simplistic and one-track thinking in the sense of Pokemon Go rather than some of the innovation of what Google has done a few years ago already.  Maybe today is too quick to judge, so let's find out more tomorrow!

  

Retro Tech Has a New Lease on Life

Polaroid and Kodak are pushing their instant camera products, which Fujifilm has done it beautifully.  We love to see their connectivity to the phone world as well as printing out literal prints immediately.  There are still many things that we think can be used in both consumer as well as business world that can make the products both aesthetically pleasing as well as materially beneficial to various segments of the audience.
