5 CES Technologies That Even George Jetson Would Envy
Last week, tech geeks from around the world invaded Sin City for the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show. In a city known for glitz, glamour and excess, technology brands were eager to follow suit, showcasing some jaw-dropping, drool-worthy new toys that had the CES herds swooning. We scoped out the show floor and rounded up 5 technologies that George Jetson himself would’ve lusted after for his Skypad Apartment.
A NEW DEFINITION OF CLARITY, SHARP 8K TV
We can’t go any further in this post without mentioning the 8K TV we saw at CES. At 8x the clarity of a typical high-quality TV (1080P), this is most certainly breaking new ground. With this new crystal clear technology – you can expect to see every freckle and pore on your favorite actor or actresses’ pretty face.
SAMSUNG YUOM’S VIRTUALLY UNBREAKABLE PHONE
For those of you with a history of mobile phone mishaps, the Samsung Yuom is a virtually unbreakable phone with a Gumby-like design that allows you to bend and twist the display. Made of thin plastic rather than glass, the material is pliable and the screen, nearly unbreakable.
TRANSFORMERS DO EXIST! ALL-IN-ONE ASUS PC AND TABLET
The ASUS Transformer AiO PC is the closest thing we’re going to get to real-life Transformers. When docked, the ASUS works as a desktop, when detached from the display, it turns into an Android 4.1 tablet. Pretty cool, eh?
AUDI-CHAUFFER? SELF-DRIVING CARS
Even George Jetson had to drive his aerocar to work. We may not be flying in the sky, but we’re getting closer to the day when your car can drop you off at the front doors of a restaurant for dinner, park itself, then come pick you up, all on its own. Audi’s autonomous A-7 is well on its way there, having successfully navigated a multi-story parking garage managing to park itself, all without a human at the wheel.
PUMP UP THE H20, BRV-1!
It goes without saying that our BRV-1 took the cake on this whole shindig, but we’re going to tell you about it anyway. This rugged outdoor speaker can handle any adventure with its IPX5 certified water resistant, shock absorbent, ultra-lightweight and compact design.
Our own Tracy Smith put on quite a show at the Braven booth with his BRV-1 water dance, proving that a little BRV-1 bass + water = water-pumping bass!
