The devices promise to be slimmer, bigger and faster - but is CES itself still relevant?

A onslaught of new gadgets and software is about to be unleashed at the latest Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

It is a chance for tech makers, big and small, to highlight the innovations and trends they think are about to take off.

Things do not always develop as planned - past promises of smart TV services and 3D screens going mainstream have failed to pan out.

But never mind, say the organisers, there is another round of next-generation technologies such as 4K ultra-high definition televisions and bendy phones ready for a go.

This is the first time I've heard of CES but i would guess it'll get better every year.

Every year the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas offers new tech to chew over - but never before quite like this.

I'm paying more attention to Audi and Toyotas self driving cars. Google won't be the only one! :biggrin:

Yeah and then hopefully it will create some competitiveness in car companies to design these things.  Collaborate or whatever, I think the race is on for self-driving cars.

 

Awesome.

I have very little interest in higher-than-necessary resolutions for TVs, but advancements on 3D and other screen enhancements for devices are great. I have no desire to let go of the mechanical keyboard quite yet, so tablets are quite unappealing. But self-driving vehicles seems like the most revolutionary thing. I would definitely prefer riding in one rather than trusting myself of another human to remain ever-vigilant to every threat.


My mind has been torn into Oblivion, is there a way to tear that too? Reach into the Oblivion, and through Zen, tear the Universe anew.

Kingston has introduced a 1 terabyte flash drive! It's expensive, but seriously the pace of this is accelerating. 1TB in your pocket - amazing.

Audi concept car parks itself

 

Watching a car park is nothing special…until you realize it's the car that's actually doing the parking, not a person behind the wheel. What's equally amazing about this Audi concept car - hit a button on a smartphone and it'll come pick you up.

 

Annie Lien of Audi said, "It's your own personal valet parker so you can press a button on a smartphone and it can drive up to your front door or let's say you came to a hotel or coming to a shopping center you can press a button on your smartphone and it'll go through a parking structure and actually find its own parking space and park itself."

I'm really excited about Samsung's future flexible devices, I've seen some hammer tests with them on YouTube and they seem damn near invincible. I've broken two tablets in the last year by accidentally cracking the screens, about $600 down the drain, flexible screens could end up totally eliminating the chance of that happening again.

 

One device from CES I haven't seen many people mentioning:

 

20 inch 4K resolution Panasonic tablet:

Windows 8 

1.8 GHz Intel Core i5

Nvidia GeForce Graphics

4 GB RAM

128 GB Solid State Drive
