HTC Vive Cosmos up close: Pre-active, not quite turned on just yet

HTC Vive Cosmos up close: Pre-active, not quite turned on just yet

Today we're getting up close and personal with the HTC Vive Cosmos, a VR headset made for the masses. The device itself doesn't power on - not for the press at the moment, anyway. Instead we're forced to only look at the most basic elements at play - the industrial design, and the details we've been given by HTC on its near future.

Royole Foldable Display and FlexPai hands-on: Mobile bendy phone screen time

Royole Foldable Display and FlexPai hands-on: Mobile bendy phone screen time

The world's first fully functional and out-for-sale device with a foldable display came from Royole. They'll forever get to keep that as a point of distinction. They'll also be able to point out, in the future, that it was they that made the device with Android, folding backward, and without the need for a display cover - though we'd probably want one in this case. There's also the display itself, and its absolutely incredible thinness.

Acer Predator Thronos Gaming Chair hands-on: Gloriously Excessive

Acer Predator Thronos Gaming Chair hands-on: Gloriously Excessive

The Acer Predator Thronos Gaming Chair is something out of a sci-fi movie - or perhaps your wildest at-home arcade dreams. It's like I'm one of the Sovereign from Marvel Comics - in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, where they remotely control spaceships from their super-advanced full-sized consoles. Or one of those kids in the movie TOYS, controlling war machines from the comfort of their own gaming chairs - or something like that. In any case, this is pretty awesome.

LG OLED Falls is the mesmerizing CES 2019 display the tech was born for

LG may have a rollable OLED TV to release this year, but it risked overshadowing its own flagship with its incredible LG OLED Falls installation at CES 2019 this week. The latest in a line of Consumer Electronics Show demoes of the company's display prowess, it comes after the LG OLED Tunnel in 2017 and the LG OLED Canyon in 2018.

HTC VIVE Pro Eye hands-on: More than just eye-tracking

HTC VIVE Pro Eye hands-on: More than just eye-tracking

This week we got the opportunity to try out the newest in innovative VR tech from HTC, the HTC VIVE Pro Eye. This device looks a whole lot like the standard Vive Pro on the outside. In fact you might mistake one for the other, except for the bright blue outline around one element at the front of the headset. From the inside, it's a whole new world.

Acer Predator Triton 900 Hands-on: Flipping out on gaming excess

Acer Predator Triton 900 Hands-on: Flipping out on gaming excess

We got the chance to get up close and personal with the Predator Triton 900 this week at CES 2019. This Acer-made computer brings gaming power with a robust (read: not made just to be thin and light) laptop with a transforming appearance. The display does a flip. Instead of being relegated to one open position, this laptop flips on a hinge and locks in in several different positions, making it an ideal candidate for one serious gamer's mobile-yet-PC gaming rig.

Don’t let the Mercedes Vision URBANETIC’s wacky looks fool you

Don’t let the Mercedes Vision URBANETIC’s wacky looks fool you

The Mercedes-Benz Vision URBANETIC concept looks like a TRON party bus or a prop from a Netflix sci-fi series, but in reality the show-friendly styling hides a surprisingly sensible idea. Making its US debut at CES 2019 this week, the Vision URBANETIC asks the question of whether an autonomous vehicle needs to always be the same thing, all of the time.

Mercedes’ smartwatch plots navigation based on driver stress

Mercedes-Benz and Garmin have teamed up on a new smartwatch, capable of feeding health data to the dashboard and figuring out less stressful routes, among other features. The Mercedes-Benz branded Garmin vivoactive 3 GPS smartwatch was revealed alongside the 2020 CLA Coupe at CES 2019 today, and while it may be much smaller than the car, it's just as tech-packed.

LG’s rollable TV is slick enough to silence any skeptics

LG’s rollable TV is slick enough to silence any skeptics

The LG rollable TV is going on sale in 2019, and while you might be skeptical about the practical benefits of flexible, you can't help but be wowed when you see the screen in person. Shown off in production form at CES 2019 this week, the LG Signature OLED TV R can be both as expansive as a flagship 65-inch set, but as discreet as a chunky soundbar.

Acer Swift 7 hands-on: An impossibly thin and lightweight laptop

Acer Swift 7 hands-on: An impossibly thin and lightweight laptop

Acer has introduced an incredibly thin, incredibly light laptop called the Swift 7. This 14-inch ultrabook weighs a mere 1.9lbs and measures less than 1cm thick, the result being a notebook so svelte it scarcely feels real. Despite its slim size, Acer has taken care to make the Swift 7 durable via Gorilla Glass 6 on the display and a magnesium-alloy chassis.

Acer Predator Triton 500 hands-on: RTX without the size compromise

Acer Predator Triton 500 hands-on: RTX without the size compromise

Shortly before CES 2019 kicked off, Acer unveiled two new gaming laptops in its Predator line: the Triton 900 and the Triton 500. We were able to snag some hands-on time with the more traditional-looking laptop of the two, the Triton 500. Though the Triton 500 may not have the unique design of the 900, it still sounds like it's going to pack quite a punch despite its relatively slim build.
