The 2019 edition of the Las Vegas CES ended on January 11th. Among thousands of announcements and presentations, some products and innovations struck home. Introductions!
 
During the 4 days between January 8th and 11th, the high tech world only had eyes for the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Here are the best bits of eye-striking innovation.
 

Screen: folding TV and an elephant-sized screen

 
The first one is a confirmation: LG will start selling its roll-up screen by June 2019. With a click on a button, it disappears like a blind. An impressive futuristic TV at a chilling cost. According to some informed (and talkative) sources, its price could be above 8,000€.
 
On the side of screens, the tsunami of 8K TV with gigantic dimensions did take place. But computer screens had their day too. Philips struck first with a 32″ IPS 4K screen – which is huge. They also introduced Brillance, a curved computer screen with a diagonal width of 49 inches! A monster.
 

Laptop: an extremely fine one and a power monster

 
Concerning laptops, we noticed the Alienware Area-51m by Dell which has outstanding processing power for a laptop. It also boasts an aggressive and futuristic design. Inside, it is equipped with a « full size » Intel Core i9-9900K which usually powers desktop computers. This makes the Alienware the most powerful laptop in the world, so says Dell. And why not?
 

A self-charging watch and a VR helmet that follows your gaze

 
Concerning connected hardware, mention must be made of the Matrix PowerWatch 2 watch. It runs on thermal and solar energy and recharges autonomously. Its carbon footprint is also limited.
 
Last nugget: the Vive Pro Eye, a virtual reality helmet by HTC which implements gaze tracking. It’s very new for a consumer model. The immersive experience will surely be enhanced. Well done!
