Consumer Electronics Show (CES) wrapped up last week and left us with a ton of amazing and extraordinary bits and pieces of technology. While there were a ton of things showcased at this staggering gathering of tech companies – both tech mammoths and new startups – there were a few things that stood out from the rest. As CES is place where anyone can show up so the diversity of the technology and the electronics and gadgets is just mindblowing. Compiled below is a short list of the things that were really something else. So let’s take a look and see what we have to look forward to in this year.
LG 4K OLED TV
This thing is just stunning. The model introduced by LG is G6 and it is just phenomenal in every aspect. The OLED technology means that the blacks are great and so is the contrast. And LG has done its best to leave no stone unturned when it comes to this model: things like luminance, audio quality and color gamut are in a class of their own. This model also has the “Ultra HD Premium” by the UHD Alliance. Availability and pricing are still a little bit away.
Razer Blade Stealth and Razer Core
Razer is known for its extreme gaming machines but the trouble with such machines is that they are bulky and very power hungry. Razer has changed that with its Razer Blade Stealth which is an ultrabook which excellent specs. But that’s just half the story; Razer Core is what completes this arrangement and is responsible for making even the most resource hungry games run on Razer Blade Stealth.
Here’s how it works: the Razer Core can fit a full desktop class GPU inside it and can connect to the ultrabook via Thunderbolt 3 transforming it into a powerful gaming machine. That’s not all: other peripherals can also be connected to Razer Core for extending the capabilities of the whole setup.
Razer Blade Stealth starts at $999.
Technics EAH T-700
If you are an audiophile, then it doesn’t get better than this: Technics EAH T-700 will provide you with an audio experience that you just won’t forget. With crisp sound quality that you will be hard pressed to find anywhere else these headphones are the really “premium”. All this sound quality comes with a matching price: Technics EAH T-700 will retail for $1200. Yes, that much!
HTC VIVE PRE
Virtual Reality and HTC is an odd one; the tech company is known for its mobiles. But this time it has managed to do something which is quite amazing: it’s foray in Virtual Reality is a success and that is why it has been able to outshine the Oculus Rift, at least for now.
VIVE Pre has been built in collaboration with Valve and that much is quite evident. The Pre has two controllers that can be used to interact with things in VR. Not only that, VIVE Pre can also show the actual surroundings of the wearer in Virtual Reality. This product is fascinating to say the least and it will be interesting to see what it shapes into.
Chevy Bolt is perhaps the best thing that came out of CES 2016. And why’s that? Because it signals the start of an era when Electric Vehicles go mainstream. The best thing about the Chevy Bolt is its price which will increase its appeal to the masses. In addition to that, it is everything that you would expect from a car: it is a delight to handle and runs as smoothly as imaginable. Chevy Bolt is really the future of the Electric Vehicles.
