CES is just around the corner. It takes place from Jan 9 – 12. My father and I will be attending the 11th & 12th. I cannot wait to take the drive up to LV!

I am now an experienced “CES-er”, having attended this large event the past 2 consecutive years.

Sony will be the biggest surprise when it comes to smartphones during the conference. The Japanese firm is expected to launch several new phones in 2018.

Some of the largest players are Google, Samsung, LG, and Sony.

Last year, Samsung had Virtual Reality “rides” that participants could join in on. These rides flipped, turned, and spun participants in every direction imaginable. It will be interesting to see what Samsung has in store this year. I believe it will be their rumored Galaxy X, which can bend and fold.

Google might feature products such as the Pixel 2 & Pixel 2 XL phones, Google Home Mini smart speaker, Google PixelBook, and Daydream View VR headset. They have reserved the outdoor Central Plaza of the LVCC (Las Vegas Convention Center), plus 8 suites at the Aria hotel.

Sony will most likely reveal it’s new headphones, 4K projectors, Bravia TVs, and Xperia smartphones.

LG will be displaying its lineup of smart TVs, with OLED and FHD technology. Their 88in 8K OLED TV might pop-in with an amazing resolution of 7,680 x 4,320 pixels (record breaker for sure). The LG G7 smartphone and ThinQ speaker could take launch at this year’s conference as well.

How many of you will be attending this year’s CES?

 

Fun Fact of the Day: What are Polarized Glasses?

polarized-lenses

Fun fact of the day:

Polarized lenses mitigate glare by using a chemical film either applied to or embedded in the lenses. The chemical filter on polarized sunglasses removes glare by absorbing the incoming horizontal light, while still allowing vertical light. What we perceived as glare is usually reflected horizontal light. The horizontal light that creates the effect of glare is absorbed and nullified by the chemical film on polarized lenses. The lenses only allow vertical light, acting as a chemical Venetian blind.
