CES 2011 – Oakley, Toshiba, Samsung and More

You can read about CES all you want, but the most exciting part of the conference is the sight of new and exciting products. In the following post, we’ve got pictures from the Oakley Mobile Lab, Toshiba’s booth, a bit of Samsung, and a few other shots from the show.

I ran into a few corrupt files, so I’ll be back at Sammy for more tomorrow.

Toshiba shows off voice control capabilities.

Another piece of gear designed to test glasses at Oakley.

Just look at that ridiculously thin bezel on the Samsung 8000. I want this.

Microsoft and Intel are chums! Both are also displaying "Smart TV" solutions.

Even at CES, people can't help but watch the news.

I have no idea what's going on here, but apparently it has something to do with Canon.


    • I’ve learned to avoid anything game related at CES, (though by doing so I missed a chance to meet my nerd hero). Microsoft seemed to be showing off Kinect and Phone 7 and Intel was all about new chips and some of the same old demos as last year.

      SyFy Games was demoing an MMO called Rift, but I’m not holding out a lot of hope. The MMO space is lousy with games and so few of them are worthy of attention. My money is on Star Wars. I honestly can’t see DC Universe panning out.

      • Its a pitty the company making the Stargate MMO went under. I had friends working for them, and was hooked from the first alpha – before the beta opened up to the general public. Suddenly, they tell me that they hadn’t been paid in six weeks, and you never heard anything about the game again.

    Philips announced it’s bringing its 58″ 21:9 ultra-widescreen 3D HDTV to the US in the second half of 2011.

    The engadget guys thought the picture quality was pretty sweet.

    • Vizio is bringing 21:9 as well, and right around the same time. The first will be a 54″ and up to a 65″ if I’m not mistaken.

      The samples they had weren’t great, but the rep said they were early prototypes and not representative of the final product. We’ll see how it pans out.

      I’d love a 21:9 set at a decent price:)
