CES 2013

Posted 07 January 2013 - 09:50 AM

Is anyone following CES 2013?
http://www.engadget....s2013/articles/


Any predictions? Expectations on products coming out? Products they are tracking?

I am guessing this is the year for the new consoles to debut, right? Well except for Nintendo... (which no one likes. ;) )

I am already seeing a few interesting tidbits on the 3d printers:
http://www.engadget....d-systems-cube/

USB3.0 has a "super speed" with a possible 10 gb/s

I will be curious to see if Carmack shows up with his Oculus Rift being demoed. I would like to see that more before throwing down cash on a heads display.

Edit:
Ah.. what lenovo? A 27" tablet/table top for $1699? Hmmm... I don't know. That two hour battery life seems a bit low.... Hahaha..

I'm excited for the 3d printers, I can't wait until you can have your own 3d printer. Imagine the fun things you could do.

Also I like nintendo.. They just need to stop with the bass ackward ideas.

Wii U? More like XXXL gameboy.

Makerbot's back with a two headed replicator..

Though.. I am intrigued by an 84" tv for 20k. I am certain I can find a wall seven feet long to shove this in, but daaaaaaamn.

edit:

Okay.. nevermind.. found the awesome!

Lego Mindstorm3!

http://www.popsci.co...l-speed-sensors
http://aboutus.lego....mindstorms-ev3/

Valve's "Steam Box" (aka Piston)
http://www.polygon.c...e-steam-box-xi3
Though.. I don't know... it looks like just a pretty, small, but darn expensive pc.

Quote

Piston will offer up to 1 TB of interal storage and offer modular component updates, including the option to upgrade the PC's CPU and RAM.
...
Xi3 wouldn't discuss price for Piston, but commented that the Steam Box is based on its "performance level" X7A offering, which is priced at $999.
...
Xi3 also offers the entry level X5A, which is priced at $499 with a Linux operating system.
...
The demo unit of Piston featured an IO board boasting one ethernet port, 1/8" audio in/out, SPDIF optical audio, four USB 3.0 ports, four USB 2.0 ports (with one dedicated to keyboard input), four eSATAp ports, two Mini Display Port ports and one DisplayPort/HDMI port.

I was thinking something along the lines of printing out toy soldiers and having a rubber band cannon war at the office.

That suggested idea is just plain weird lmao.

Seems a bit expensive, but if it means not having to upgrade your OS and video card every 2-3 years it could be a good investment. In a few years prices will come down. This may be more powerful than a console, but I highly doubt they'll grab even a small portion of the console market, especially when gamers purchase used games frequently. Steam never did change their policy for selling used games.

On another note, the new ASUS Republic of Gamers PC was showcased at CES 2013 and... wow! Check it out: http://www.youtube.c...h?v=1-s2cgcgJSs . In case you're wondering, it can be had for a cool $6000.

The Lego Mindstorm looks pretty cool and I am excited to see it runs on Linux. If my son was older I would be getting one asap.

Steam box = Piston.

We all knew it was coming; and it's name is fitting; and hilarious all at the same time.

A few interesting things that popped up..

This looks promising (assume reebok subsidizes this enough to get it on the field)

Quote

Reebok and mc10 have collaborated to create CheckLight, a head impact indicator meant to make it easy to see when an athlete has taken a dangerous blow to the head. The CheckLight itself is comprised of two parts: a sensor device built by mc10 and skull-cap made by Reebok.
...
One LED serves as a battery level indicator, one flashes yellow after moderate impacts and a third flashes red for severe blows.
...
That may be where the real genius of the CheckLight lies -- by giving players a means to easily see when a teammate may have a concussion, they police each other.

Reebok and mc10 team up to build CheckLight, a head impact indicator to help diagnose concussions


The other one is this 360 degree camera.

Quote

Equipped with three 8-megapixel wide-angle lenses the camera captures an almost spherical field of view.
...
In 360 video mode the advertised resolution is up to 2,048 x 1,024. In photo mode you'll get single shot, burst and time-lapse modes with a top resolution of 4,096 x 2,048. The actual FOV is 360 degrees on the horizontal, and 150 degrees vertically, but the end result is a fairly complete viewing sphere. The 3,000 mAh battery should be good for two hours of footage, and the microSD card slot will take cards of up to 32GB.

I'm awaiting the XBox 720 and whatever new development software MS decides to ship out for it, as I'm sure XNA will probably need a major upgrade to be compatible with it.
