TOSHIBA 4K LAP­TOPS:

As ex­pected, 4k dis­plays have be­come big at CES this year. In­ter­est­ingly, Toshiba has taken this res­o­lu­tion be­yond TVs by bring­ing 4k dis­play to ma­chines run­ning Win­dows 8.1. Of the two lap­tops Toshiba an­nounced, the 15.6-inch Te­cra W50 can go up to a res­o­lu­tion of 3840x2160. This note­book is de­signed as a por­ta­ble work­sta­tion for pro­fes­sion­als work­ing with graph­i­cally-in­ten­sive ap­pli­ca­tions.

PANA­SONIC WEAR­ABLE 4K CAM­ERA:

By com­bin­ing two big tech­nolo­gies, Pana­sonic has in­tro­duced the por­ta­ble 4K cam­era as a wear­able gad­get that hooks onto your ear. Ac­cord­ing to Pana­sonic, the de­vice is wa­ter­proof, dust­proof and can be used daily. The video shot in 4K res­o­lu­tion uses about four times the pix­els found in HD, It can be shared via Wi-Fi and viewed on smart­phones or ul­tra HD liv­ing room TVs.

MICROMAX LAPTAB:

Home-grown Micromax brought its LapTab to CES. This is its first In­tel-pow­ered tablet that has a dual-boot OS (An­droid and Win­dows 8). It is pow­ered by In­tel's Bay Trail-M, among the first de­vices with that chipset. It uses the 1.4 GHz In­tel Celeron N2805 pro­ces­sor, and runs both An­droid 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) and Win­dows 8. How­ever, one has to re­boot to switch be­tween op­er­at­ing sys­tems.

CORNING ANTIMICROBIAL GORILLA GLASS 3:

A phone car­ries more germs than a toi­let seat. To ad­dress this prob­lem, Corning has un­veiled an Antimicrobial Gorilla Glass 3, a germ-bust­ing tech­nol­ogy. The com­pany has in­fused ions of sil­ver, a com­mon an­tibac­te­rial agent, di­rectly into the chem­i­cally-strength­ened glass. This can re­buff up to 99.9 per cent of cer­tain bac­te­ria that are found in abun­dance on the phone screen.
