Royole FlexPai, Mercedes-Benz Vision Urbanetic: Futuristic Launches From CES 2019 On Day 2
From a foldable phone to a revolutionary mobility concept, a lot happened on day 2 of the year's first and largest consumer electronics show in Las Vegas.
The Royole FlexPai is a kind of device when they feel the need to be the first ones to be out with new technology. The smartphone which measures 7.8 inches diagonally, is an Android tablet. It becomes two, when it is closed or flexed. It also provides two SIM slots and provides an auto-detection system that only shows content on the half of the folded screen. The user gets a 1920 x 1440 resolution on the full display, and that shrinks to less than half when in phone mode.
Mercedes' autonomous concept with interchangeable modules can carry people or cargo. It runs off batteries and operates autonomously. The module which moves people has room for 12. It has plenty of windows and a large panoramic moonroof surrounded by an LED light display. The seats are arranged in a circle, with two-level seating.
Kate Spade Smartwatch
Under the Fossil brand, Kate Spade launched their second touchscreen smartwatch - the Scallop Smartwatch 2. This includes built-in GPS, with NFC and a heart rate monitor. The watch runs Google’s Wear OS, which means you can access Google Assistant, Google Pay, and Google Fit. The device is also water resistant, both for showers and shallow water swimming. It is armed with a 300mAh battery that lasts one to two days on a charge, a magnetic charger, Bluetooth, and compatibility with Android 4.4+ and iOS 9.3+.
The GAEMS Guardian
The GAEMS Guardian is a boon for on-the-go streamers. GAEMS, a supplier of portable gaming set ups, wanted to make a high-end, premium version of its product . The result is the Guardian, which is basically a huge suitcase with a built-in monitor for both gaming consoles and PCs that can be lugged around and plugged in anywhere. It has a 24-inch QHD panel with a 60Hz refresh rate, the best the company has ever offered. It is compatible with Xbox One, Xbox One X, PS4 and PS4 Pro — partly.
Bell Nexus Air Taxi
Bell has a reputation of being an innovative aviation company. The Nexus by Bell looks straight out of a Hollywood sc-fi film. The Bell Nexus will be capable of a vertical-takeoff-and-landing (VTOL) and will come powered by a hybrid-electric propulsion system.
Lockly’s Secure Pro
Lockly’s Secure Pro combines a random number generator with an app. It comes with a keypad that generates numbers in random order every time you need to enter your passcode. Each input on the keypad is actually three numbers, so even if someone watches along as you tap the code in, they likely wouldn’t be able to guess what you’ve entered. Apart from the keypad, there is also a fingerprint scanner and a way to unlock through either the mobile app or through voice assistant command. In case you can't open it with anything, there is a regular key as well.
A paper-thin 12.5-inch USB-C monitor that can run entirely off a single cable plugged into a phone or laptop. The whole thing is probably the size of a sheet of paper. It is nearly as thin as a few sheets stacked together. Even the chin at the bottom where the ports and components are incredibly slim at 8mm thick.
The new version of the Leaf or 'Leaf e+', can travel for 226 miles on a full charge. The vehicle features a 40kWh battery that is good for about 150 miles of range. It also offers Nissan’s ProPilot driver assistance technology, which can manage highway driving as well as parking. The car looks modern and Nissan has also upgraded to a 150 kW motor, which generates the equivalent of about 200 horsepower.
Lenovo Yoga S940
Lenovo’s new Yoga S940 is using a 13.9-inch panel. The company has opted for a reversed notch at the top, to fit the webcam in. The laptop's eye tracking allows you to move content from the display to an external monitor just by glancing, and the screen also dims to black if you step away from the laptop.
