Have a quick look at the latest innovations on display at the Consumer Electronics Show, and if you make it to the bottom, you’ll see a couple of Proportians rubbing shoulders with a certain pint-sized Hollywood legend.

There’s been talk of bendy smartphones for a while now, but they’re getting even closer to becoming a reality now as Samsung have made no secret of this new technology at CES 2013. Demonstrating a working flexible Samsung phone to the world at the conference this week, this OLED display technology is destined for a whole range of Youm branded devices coming soon.

We could all soon pretend to be The Terminator (without all the killing obviously) thanks to this latest contraption on show at CES 2013. Smartglasses are another sci-fi fantasy that are edging closer to our faces, with Vuzix launching the M100 smart-specs which sync with smartphones and tablets to display texts, photos and other notifications in front of your eye.

Tonnes of New Techie Fun at CES 2010

The International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is one of the biggest technology related trade shows in the world, with countless exciting previews and new products announced every year. Notable items announced at this event include everything from the DVD (1996) and the Xbox (2001), to Tetris (1988) and Pong (1975). Held in the always understated Las Vegas, this year’s conference did not disappoint, with a host of new gadgets, gizmos and so forth on show to set tongues wagging.


Highlights included: the Sony Vaio I all in one with 24” HD touchscreen; the world’s thinnest laptop (Dell Adamo XPS); Microsoft’s Bleo Reader – an e-bookshop with over 1 million text books to choose from; a preview of the HP Slate; and gameplay video from the forthcoming games Halo Reach and Mass Effect 2. But the highlight for many journalists was the Intel Infoscape exhibition, which featured two 7 foot screens showing 576 cubes hooked up to 20,000 info sources including 20+ live video feeds. Visitors could touch any of the cubes to bring up info boxes, and the whole thing was reminiscent enough of Minority Report (or perhaps, given the location, CSI) to make for a “spectacular” demo.

Although it’s doubtful that’ll be your very own Minority Report style computer for the living room…
