Best of CES 2013

The recently concluded CES 2013 (Consumer Electronics Show) at Las Vegas, Nevada showcased some of the best breakthroughs in consumer electronics that will soon find their way into the hands of consumers. Here are 5 of them that are worth watching and tracking

  1. Bendable Displays - Gorilla Glass put on display its new bendable glass named Willow. Truly bendable into a full 180 degree arc without any strain, the glass from Corning will herald a new wave of mobile computing devices that will stretch the limit of portability and convenience. Samsung too put up on display its range of bendable displays. It went a step ahead and actually etched out how a futuristic mobile gadget screen would look like on these displays.
  2. Hybrid Computing Devices (Laptops + Tablets): Dell and Lenova led the pack while showcasing the next wave of computing devices. The Dell XPS 12 and Lenovo ThinkPad Helix demonstrated a tablet+laptop hybrid
  3. 3D Printers: 3D printers enable you to print in 3D. Not exactly fresh out of oven, but what's of importance is that speed with which the price of 3D printers is falling and bring them to our offices and homes. CES saw CubeX, a 3D printer maker release several variants priced in the range of $2500 to $3500.
  4. Goliath LED TVs: Samsung unveiled a mammoth 110" LED TV that was a stunner. Samsung's 4K 110" TV dwarfed the already commercially available 85S9 model at 85"
  5. Mind Control Headset: Interaxon, the company behind Muse, a wearable headband uses EEG technique to pick up brainwaves and use them to help control apps on your mobile. On display at CES was a small technology demonstrator that allowed the user to will two circles to overlap and see it happening on the screen as willed by the brain.
