Today, I stopped by the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and added the following to my gadget wish list:
The Samsung Galaxy Camera combines its 21x zoom and 16 megapixel sensor with the features of a tablet (4.8 inch touchscreen and Jelly Bean). Engadget has a detailed review.
Soon, high definition just won’t be good enough. The TV in this picture has 4K resolution, or 3,840 by 2,160 pixels. This is about four times the resolution of 1080p (1,920 by 1,080). There was a noticeable difference in image quality when comparing TVs with the two resolutions side-by-side.
Coming soon is a device from Delphi and Verizon that will plug into most cars and allow the user to track and monitor a vehicle through a web browser or mobile app. The device keeps a history of the dates and miles driven for each trip. This may be a helpful tool for business owners to keep a mileage log. Plus, it includes a GPS and is a great way to keep track of your teenager.
3D printing is a technology I have heard about in the past couple of years, but it was amazing to witness it in person. Check out some objects on Makerbot.com that have come from 3D printers.
I saw Fujitsu’s new ScanSnap iX500, which has built-in Wi-Fi connectivity. Using the ScanSnap Connect Application, a scanned document can be sent directly to a mobile device connected to a network.
Also, I’m very happy with my new Samsung Galaxy Note II smartphone. Despite putting it through a full day’s work at CES checking e-mail and taking pictures, it has 41% battery life remaining. It is great not having to pack a charger.
