Las Vegas Consumer Electronic Show
Things I would have bought at the Show immediately if I could have:
- The 81inch Ultra-High-Def TV with the almost unbelievable 3-D presentation at the entrance to the Main Exhibition Hall. Quite amazing.
- Everything Samsung and in particular the Samsung Galaxy Camera looks absolutely marvelous and should be in one’s high-tech kitbag – its a tablet/smart device, great camera and connects to the net. I also love the Note 11 which looks like the first integrated personal device that is going to stick.
- The 21inch LG computer monitor is terrific – a thing of beauty which can present you with four discrete monitors each able to handle multiple open windows.
- Loved the Grablets, a rugged, innovative way to protect your iPad. Just four rugged edges that fit on the outside edges of the iPad and a funky, outdoorsy handle to hold the device easily in a number of ways.
- But the piece de la resistance was the helicopter powered by brain waves – I tried Neurosky’s ears and wiggled them by agitating my mind (that was easy). Neurosky is the inventor of the technology – they are using it logically for healthcare.
- A connected car at minimum (Ford had a very big presence there but everyone was showcasing security systems, car media, electronic monitoring etc. etc.) but a driverless car if possible. Google is already testing this in the Valley. Of course as driverless becomes the fashion, the media systems in vehicles are becoming quite amazing.
- Headsets, headsets, headsets – phenomenal quality and of course customized to suit your personal look and fashion taste.
