Everything you need to know about the latest tech and more.
Every year at the Consumer Electronics Show, the best in the business come forward to flex their muscles and show off what they’ve been designing in the last year. Here are just a few of the coolest highlights.
Black Box VR
If didn’t already think the gym was just one big competition then Black Box VR is sure to convince you. Black Box VR seeks to incorporate virtual reality with everyday muscle building workouts. The company plans to open gyms in which members strap into a VR headset, use real workout machines, and compete for high scores against other members. This might sound incredibly weird, but it just might be the future of fitness.
Optoma 4K Projector
Ever since the dawn of man, we have been trying to figure out how to turn our homes into just one large TV. Well, with Optoma’s new 4K projector it is safe to say we are making steps in the right direction. This new compact projector boasts some impressive capabilities that are on par with some of today’s best TV’s. Great quality and the ability to control your smart home devices make this one the coolest new toys shown at CES 2018.
Prevent Biometrics – Concussion Sensing Mouth Guard
Sure, football may be scientifically proven to negatively impact our brains, but that doesn’t mean we are going to stop playing it! For those who won’t listen to a thing science says might want to instead trust this new piece of technology—it could save your life. Prevent Biometrics has created a mouth guard that can sense potential concussion inducing impacts and quickly alert medical staff nearby.
Vuzix Blade Augmented Reality Glasses
Remember Google Glass’s promising reveal and disappointing existence? Well, other companies have been hard at work trying to capitalize on the market of augmented reality accessories. Do the Vuzix Blade glasses look stylish and fashionable? Hardly. However, what sets these glasses apart is Alexa’s integration (she’s seriously taking over) that let wearers accomplish some incredible things.
If you’re someone who loves catching up on movies and shows while on the go but have found yourself growing tired of your phone’s small screen, look no further than Android’s Movi Phone. Designed with the viewer in mind, this smartphone comes equipped with a projector capable of screening 720p videos at a size of up to 200 inches. While you probably can’t binge watch Netflix shows during class, you can definitely screen some movies on your ceiling as you fall asleep.
