Hypervsn Solo L
When we saw this hologram technology, we couldn’t figure out how on earth it worked – it really looks the full “Help me, Obi-Wan”. The secret: an array of spinning blades rigged with LEDs that create a convincing 3D image at 30 frames per second. Hypervsn’s latest unit is 75cm, allowing for a picture 80% larger than before.
This hybrid electric personal flying machine takes off and lands vertically thanks to the four horizontal propellers above the passenger’s head. It also has a jet turbine engine that produces 27kg of downward force when hovering; in flight the engine pitches to add thrust.
Royole foldable smartphone
Yes, this foldable smartphone was demo’d at CES last year, but this year it’s actually on sale. A combination of phone and tablet, it uses Royole’s second generation, ultrathin, fully flexible display.
Omron Forpheus ping-pong playing robot
The Forpheus returns to CES with new skills. The fifth generation of this table tennis-playing bot has an additional axis that lets it put topspin and backspin on the ball, and it provides a greater range of movement.
Insta360 Titan 11k
The Titan is an eight-lens cinematic VR camera that captures 360 photos and video at up to 11K resolution. The eight sensors within are “Micro Four Thirds”, which the company says are the largest available in any standalone VR camera.
Samsung GEMS exoskeleton
A more unexpected CES 2019 announcement from the tech titan, GEMS is short for ‘Gait Enhancing and Motivating System’, and can help people recovering from an injury or function as a training tool for athletes looking to improve strength and balance.
Sony 8K TV
One of the many 8K sets launched this year. So what actually is 8K? “With twice the number of horizontal lines and vertical lines, 8K provides four times the pixels of 4K (or 16 times the resolution of Full HD),” says Sony. In other words, even if your TV set is huge, the picture looks absolutely amazing.
Here’s the pitch: “Teslasuit is a full body haptic suit that let you touch and feel virtual reality, has full body motion capture, climate control and biometry systems”. Cool, right?
