The Best of CES 2018

The Best of CES 2018

Big TVs, self-driving cars, slick laptops, and more smart home gadgetry than your WiFi can handle. CES 2018 brings the latest, greatest, (and often the oddest) technology to Las Vegas every year, and each year we pick our favorite products for our big "Best in Show" awards. Some are from huge companies that are already household names; others are the ambitious first-attempts of new startups hoping to make an outsized splash. What links them all is the idea that we think they have real potential. Read on for the full list...

Byton’s electric SUV is the anti-Faraday Future of CES

Byton’s electric SUV is the anti-Faraday Future of CES

If your taste in concept cars leans toward daring, dramatic design, CES 2018 might have been a slight disappointment, and Byton's eponymous SUV epitomized that trend. The electric vehicle eschews outward glamor in favor of a design that could easily - with a few minor tweaks - be visualized in a dealership, rather than starring in a motion picture alongside Tom Cruise.

Mikme wireless mic hands-on: recording studio in your pocket

Mikme wireless mic hands-on: recording studio in your pocket

There is a lot of attention being paid these days to the recording and display of high-quality video on mobile devices, but when it comes to audio, it’s still a lopsided game. Smartphones put a heavy emphasis on audio playback quality but, save for a few like LG, don’t pay enough attention to the creation of quality audio. Fortunately, there’s Mikme, a successfully crowdfunded wireless microphone that delivers studio-grade audio recording capabilities in a box not that much bigger than your iPhone.

Aventho Wireless headphones hands-on: personalized to your hearing

Wireless Bluetooth headphones have become more abundant lately thanks to the premature death of the headphone jack but not all of them can be said to offer the best sound quality. And even those that do can’t claim to offer a listening experience that is customized and personalized to each person’s unique hearing capabilities. That is the proposition that beyerdynamics is making with the Aventho wireless headphones. More than just your premium, high-quality headset, the Aventho features technologies that adjust the settings not just to your tastes but to your personal hearing capacity.

Electra Meccanica SOLO single-seater EV makes unexpected sense

Electra Meccanica SOLO single-seater EV makes unexpected sense

If most car journeys are made with just a single person onboard, why not make a car that's focused on just that one person? That's Electra Meccanica's argument with the SOLO, a single-seater electric car that's targeted at commuters and urbanites who don't need to haul around empty seats every time.

Lumus’ AR glasses are a vision even Apple could approve of

Lumus’ AR glasses are a vision even Apple could approve of

If the mass market is going to be successfully sold on the idea of wearing augmented reality glasses, it could do worse than look to Lumus for design inspiration. The transparent display firm is showing off its latest hardware at CES 2018 this week, flush from a recent deal with Taiwanese manufacturing heavyweight - and, conspicuously, Apple partner - Quanta. If you've been waiting (semi) patiently for consumer AR to arrive in a less geeky form-factor, there's some good news.

Sony Aibo hands-on at CES 2018: In the USA to make us envious

Sony Aibo hands-on at CES 2018: In the USA to make us envious

Today we got our first chance to take a look at the newest version of Sony Aibo. This is the electronic puppy dog that Sony re-introduced to the world late last year after an extended time of darkness. That is, a time without the doggy. People loved this dog's predecessor. They loved this robot dog's family members so much, they had funerals for them when they "died." Now, here in Las Vegas in January of 2018, we get to see the greatest robot puppy again.

Lenovo Mirage Solo with Daydream hands-on: VR and the camera to shoot it

Lenovo Mirage Solo with Daydream hands-on: VR and the camera to shoot it

Right now there are two main types of virtual reality headsets, ones that are tethered to PCs and ones that need a smartphone to work. Either way, such headsets are beholden to another device running the show, which also prevents users from accessing said devices normally. Standalone VR headsets have long been a dream but, as far as Google’s Daydream platform is concerned, that almost failed to take shape. Lenovo has, fortunately, come to the rescue with the new Mirage Solo with Daydream standalone headset that promises freedom in more ways than one.

Razer Mamba HyperFlux and Razer Firefly HyperFlux were the first devices announced to ship with the company's own wireless power technology this week. This week is CES 2018, a technology conference in which Razer is notorious for revealing several concept designs, if not products fully prepared for release throughout the forthcoming year. This wireless mouse and wireless power mousepad seem to be in the latter category.

Razer Project Linda hands-on: Android phone-powered notebook

This week we're taking a look at the Razer Phone taken to a new universe. This is the Razer Project Linda, a laptop (or notebook, whatever you prefer,) made to house the Razer Phone. This device does nothing without the phone, but with it, it becomes a fully functional Android-based notebook computer. For the moment, this remains a concept design - but there is a chance it could be made into a real-deal consumer product in the near future.
