NOT TO BE MISSED @CES 2014
CES is a platform for all the big and small names to showcase their new tech. Here are some of them which should not be missed,
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.
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.
