It’s that time of the year again when we get the chance to see the future of the tech and gadget industry.
Last January 6 in Las Vegas, the doors of this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) opened with big companies and industry professionals all set to showcase tons of new products and gadgets.
I've taken a look at the most must-have devices from Day 1 and 2, and here are the best ones:
LG’s G Flex 2: Probably the best smartphone of 2015
The first smartphone to have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor made its way to the Consumer Electronics Show day one. Thanks to you, LG.
Following last year’s curved LG G Flex, this new and improved version has got a full HD display and a 5.5-inch screen size. It runs at 2.0GHz (which is better than iPhone 6’s 1.4GHz), and uses the latest version of Android OS: 5.0 Lollipop.
The new LG baby has no pricing yet, but it will be launched in Korea in late January 2015.
A Washing Machine inside another Washing Machine
Aside from the curvy smartphone, LG also brought the strangest versions of home appliances at CES. On day one, they introduced a new breed of washing machine designed to elicit reactions ranging from “Whoa” to “What?”
Don’t underestimate the tiny “Twin Washer”: as it’s so powerful it lets you do two loads at once! No joke! It’s pretty much a normal washing machine, but on the bottom there's another mini washer. Watch the full demo here.
The electronics company also unveiled the weirdest fridge I’ve ever seen: a refrigerator with six doors. Yes, six!
A Virtual Mirror that Recommends Hair Styles
This virtual mirror from Panasonic doesn’t just show you how gorg you are. It also analyses your face, and suggests makeup styles and hairdos that suit you. No gimmicks, just pure tech magic.
Harman’s Individual Sound Zone Technology
Audio maker Harman totally impressed the audience during CES day two with its new tech that lets you and your friends personalize in-car music without the need of headphones.
The ISZ (Individual Sound Zones) creates separate listening zones for each car passenger. Say your friend gets a phone call or he wants to listen to a different radio station; he can switch off the sound in his area. Personally, I think this is the coolest so far.
A Waterproof Speaker
Following Harman’s in-car sound tech is another audio device from Monster: the SuperStar Waterproof Speaker. The American company revealed this impressive product on day two, with retired basket player Shaquille O'Neal dunking it in a bath!
Feast your eyes on this vid and see how O’Neal showed off the speaker’s waterproof prowess:
Dell’s 5K monitor
Gamers and graphic artists, here’s something for you! Dell announced their 27-inch 5K monitor yesterday at the CES. And the features literally made my jaw drop!
Over 14 million pixels, a 5120 x 2880 display, and built-in Harmon Kardon speakers! It can also deliver 99% AdobeRGB and 100% sRGB coverage, and it supports 1.07 billion colors! Definitely a must-have!
