Here are the ten best picks from the CES 2015 show
1. Samsung 8K TV
Its sheer size at 110 inches meant it was always going to stand out. The new Samsung 110-inch SUHD 8K TV is a trend setter. In a market where many are yet to buy the now industry leading TV sets with 4K resolution, the 8k resolution is way ahead. Other features of the screen include the ability to play HDR content and it can deliver 3D without need for any glasses. Its biggest selling point however, is its ability to deliver mind blowing native 8K 2D content as the switch to glassless 3D brings down the quality of the image. It is set to start selling later in the year
The CES show has a drones and robotics category but understandably, this year’s show was dominated by drones. The ones present showed how much progress had been made in the field with drones flying farther and faster with a number of added functions. The AirDog with its follow me feature and ability to be easily folded into a pack was a top pick for many. Other drones with the follow me feature include Hex0+, Zano, Ghost and Trace. However, the good news in the drones industry is Intel’s announcement and launch of RealSense, a system of camera hardware and software which enables the drone to detect and avoid obstacles in its path.
3. Wireless Earbuds
Well they may not have been as big as the screens and drones available, but the first truly wireless headsets did cause a stir. The three main brands on showcase were Bragi Dash, Hearnotes, and FreeWavz. The Bragi dash earbuds, with their small size, snug and comfortable fit as well as a number of functions are clearly more popular. You can answer or reject a phone call by simply shaking your head. FreeWavz has the same working function but they are larger with their over the ear curve which is useful during exercises something these sets appear to have been built for. They can take your heart rate, and also have other features like noise cancelling, text to speech and adjustable frequency levels.
There were a number of advanced Skateboard on display including the second generation of the Zboard electric skateboard. It comes faster and lighter and it’s available in two versions, one going for $999 and the other for $1,199.A unique entrant was the IO Hawk which is not you conventional skateboard. It is battery powered with a charge lasting about 3 and half hours. The IO Hawk moves at a speed of 6 mph and weighs just 22 pounds. It has no steering but moves only with the body and feet pressure.
5. Dell’s thinnest tablet
