The Best Tech at CES

Article Written By: Kevin Didi


Hosted at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, CES is an annual tech convention where over 4500 companies come together to showcase their new and upcoming products. Some hardware teasers shown included the announcement of AMD’s Radeon VII GPU, Ryzen 3000 CPUs, and Intel’s 28-core Xeon W-3175X. Here are some other interesting products showcased during CES 2019 in Las Vegas.

Cosmo Communicator by Planet Computers

The Cosmo Communicator is a smart flip phone. With two displays, one on the outside and one on the inside, this phone can be used as both a regular phone and as a portable laptop-style workstation with a keyboard. According to reviewers at CES, the keys are well laid out, making it simple and comfortable to use. In addition, the workstation utilizes a six-inch display, making work simple and easy. An Android screen on the outside displays notifications and phone calls. The phone itself can be used in any orientation as both ends serve as a speaker and microphone. Two USB-C ports are included to allow for mice connection, external hard drives, or display outputs via HDMI.

The phone boasts a 24mp camera, running Android 9 (Pie), with support for Linux through a multi-boot option. It includes an 8-core processor, with 6 GBs RAM, 128 GBs of flash memory, dual-sim slots, fingerprint sensor, NFC, and a 4220 mAh battery.

LG Rollable OLED TV R9

This new TV was showcased as LG’s signature OLED TV. The signature of this TV is that it rolls up into a thin box. It can be used fully open for regular viewing, halfway with some smart apps displayed, or part way as a gallery, or for music and other supported applications. It can also be fully rolled up and still play music since its box serves as a speaker. Its durability has been rated at 50 000 rolls and unrolls, which equates to about four rolls a day for 32 years. The rolling itself is extremely quiet, making it a must-have for homes.

The cost, specifications, and release day have not yet been announced, but the showcasing of this product at CES 2019 have proven to be great for LG’s publicity and marketing of the product.

Acer Thronos

Gaming chairs have never been more luxurious than now with the Acer Predator Thronos. This gaming chair immerses the user in the experience with full control and adjustability. The mechanized seat is controlled with a pad that requires only one button to convert it to the ultimate gaming experience. It lowers a mechanical arm dubbed the “Scorpion Arch”, which is fitted with three 2K curved monitors. It also swings the tray in front of the user, which includes an Acer Predator gaming mouse and keyboard. That same control pad also allows the user to make a wide array of adjustments including zero-G recline up to 140º, a footrest, and seat mechanics.
