  • CES 2017 Day 3: Gaming Laptops, 4K TV Boxes, Smart Beds and More - LIVE UPDATES

    It's our third day of CES coverage - as always, check this blog throughout the day for rolling updates! See our previous two days here (4th Jan) and here (5th Jan).

    Meet Kuri

    Robots are a big part of CES every year, and 2017 is no different. Stealing the show this year is Kuri the adorable house robot! He isn't just a pretty face, with smart processors, cameras behind his eyes and live streaming capability so he can keep watch in your house while you're out. He'll respond to sound and touch too, and will display a coloured light that reflects his emotions. If he runs low on charge, he'll automatically take himself off for a power nap at his charging unit. If it's all sounding a bit like Wall-E, that might be because Kuri's designer is an ex-Pixar employee who worked on that film!

    World First: Tri-Screen Laptop

    Gaming laptop specialists Razer have raised (or should that be widened) the bar with their gorgeous triple-screen laptop. The two additional screens slide out from behind the main display automatically, giving you a display unlike any other laptop on the market right now. Named Project Valerie, it's only a prototype at this stage, but in the high-end gaming market, this could well be a game changer.

    Smart Beds

    If you're having trouble getting the perfect mattress, or you always want the cold side of the pillow, this gadget could well be the bed of your dreams (sorry...). The Sleep Number 360 learns your sleeping habits and patterns and tracks how you move in your sleep. It can then automatically adjust mattress firmness, support, angle and temperature to name but a few configurations, meaning you can drift off in peace.

    4K TV Boxes

    There's been a lot of buzz about the new breed of TVs this year so naturally many companies are trying to follow that with the very latest in TV Box technology. One impressive model is the Nvidia Shield and its voice-controlled assistant Nvidia Spot, which offers full 4K capabilities as well as an Android OS for apps and other handy functions.

  • CES 2017 Latest: QLED, New Smartphones, Self-Driving Cars and More - LIVE UPDATES

    The new year is still young but there's already plenty of reasons to get excited about new tech and gadgets at one of the world's biggest technology shows. CES 2017 is here, and we've got all the latest news from the show floor in Vegas. Keep checking back to this blog for constant updates throughout the week!

    Secure Smart Devices

    Now every other product on the market has the ability to connect to the internet (including many of our projectors!), security is as important as ever. Luckily, CES has seen the launch of a new class of device; one that attaches itself to your router and monitors the activity of all devices that are connected to it. The Norton Core (in addition to being the coolest-looking gadget of CES so far) does exactly that, and promises to defend your smart devices from hacking. At a time when even Mark Zuckerberg is covering up his webcam for fear of being hacked, these could be the products to watch in 2017.

    Smarter WiFi

    If you're not happy with the speed or reliability of your network at home, LinkSys may have just unveiled the product of your dreams. It's Velop WiFi mesh system is a set of devices that each acts as a router, access point and repeater which means you can get a super strong connection no matter where you are in your home. This would be perfect for use with an all-in-one projector like the Pico Genie M550 Plus!

    World First: QLED TVs

    Samsung will be a big presence at CES this year and we're expecting them to put more of a focus on QLED TVs. There's a lot of buzz about this, but what exactly are QLEDs?

    QLEDs are a best-of-both-worlds combination of quantum dots - the things in that gives you bright colours in high-end TVs - and OLEDs, which are organic materials that give the most vibrant colours and deepest blacks. This means QLED TVs will offer the brightest images and most vibrant colours of any display we've ever seen!

    Samsung is expected to announce the first ever retail QLED TVs at CES - keep checking the blog for the latest!

    Easy As USB-C

    USB-C is going to be everywhere at CES, notably on the shiny new Dell and Lenovo laptops.

    USB-C is being pushed as an all-purpose connection that can operate as a charger, data connection and even an audio jack, meaning the trusty 3.5mm jack could be on its way out!

    Faraday Future's Self-Driving Car

    Once merely a sci-fi movie staple, the self-driving car is making waves at CES! The FF91, who manufacturers Faraday Future claim boasts 1,000 horsepower, can go from 0-60 in just 2.39 seconds. It can be connected to smart devices to use augmented reality and drive and park itself, too!

    If you're impressed by these stats, you might want to set aside the £4000 needed to pre-order it now!
