      CES 2014 - Day 1

       

      We kick off the New Year with a look to the future, and the new barriers that will be broken down by the sheer magic of modern technology.

       

      And what better way to catch a glimpse of what’s to come than to catch the highlights of the annual International Consumer Electronics Show 2014 held in Las Vegas.

       

      Day one of four held true to the promise of mind-boggling gadgets and thingamajics, big and small.

       

      Here are a few:

       

      Samsung and LG introduce the world’s first 105-inch curved UHD televisions

       

      The battle for big televisions got even better with these new Ultra HD curved screens. Enjoy 4K-viewing from different spots in your living room. Get a glimpse now! LG, Samsung

      Huawei Ascend Mate 2 4G

       

      Huawei thinks big, too! Last Monday, January 7 (along with Audi and Intel), Huawei Ascend Mate 2 4G made its debut. Fashioned with an improved 16.1-inch IPS panel which shows better resolution. On top of that, it can actually charge up other devices too!

      ChefJet 3D and Chef Pro 3D

       

      Amidst the self-driving cars and the new laptops, our attentions were drawn to something called ChefJet 3D and ChefJet Pro 3D.

       

      ChefJet 3D is a printer that prints out food.  Seriously.

       

      We could describe what it does in summary (it prints out chocolates and sweets), but we think it’d be better for you guys to see it in action (starts at0:57).  Read more about it here.
