Jan 12, 2010
The Consumer Electronics Show has revealed a lot about what tech companies are working on at the moment, and to keep you posted on some of the upcoming developments, here’s a quick list of some of the biggest previews getting the most buzz:
Project Natal is Microsoft’s response to way Wii has changed the way we play video games. This new technology will allow gamers to play without controllers by using a kind of camera “which provides full-body 3D motion capture, facial recognition, and voice recognition capabilities.” In short – this sounds awesome.
Lenovo showed off a new hybrid laptop design at CES that could possibly provide insight into future tablet PC technologies. This device works as either a regular tablet computer, but can plug into a special dock to work just like a normal laptop.
Transparent OLED Screens
Samsung unveiled a prototype 14-inch notebook, complete with what’s being touted as the world’s first and largest transparent OLED prototype. With 40 percent transparency, this device looks incredibly promising for future OLED strives. Hmm…who do you think will be the first to take this to a TV size?
