– [Jonathan] From a crazytriple monitor gaming laptop.
To a dancing Dr.
To an insane 8K displaythat packs as many pixels as four 4K monitors.
This is some of the best tech at CES 2017.
Yo guys, Jonathan here.
Just got back from CES, whichis giant, crazy, massive tech show.
And what I want to do isbreak it down into five of the coolest pieces of techand gadgets that I saw.
And huge shout out to Samsungfor sending me out there and sponsoring my 2017 CES coverage.
Now speaking of Samsung, they were killing the home tech game andfirst up is their brand new family hub 2.
0 refrigerator line up.
So, if you’re thinking toyourself, how much tech could actually be inside of arefrigerator, this is packing a massive 21 and a halfinch touch LED display.
No joke, this displayis massive, but it works because it essentially becomesyour central control panel.
What’s also rad is nowintegrated voice control.
Which to be honest I reallydidn’t get a chance to check out because of how loud it was on the floor.
But the idea is you can useyour voice to look up stock in your fridge, to order groceries,or even look up a recipe.
Now speaking of recipes,what I found really cool, was the fact that not onlywill it display the recipe on the giant display, it willalso read it back to you aloud.
Hands down the coolestfeature with this though, are the ninja cameras inside.
Now, I feel like most of out there, at one point in our lives,have been yelled at for leaving that refrigerator door open.
And not only, does this elevate that, but what it also does, isallow you to check on the inside of your refrigeratorremotely at any given time.
So in this case, ifyou’re out at the store, and you’re not sure ifyou bought eggs or milk, you can now check on yourphone to see what’s inside your fridge, which is awesome.
Now runner’s up for Samsungwere their Flex Wash and Flex Dry washers and dryers.
And these were especiallycool because you have your main compartments up front anda second compartment up top, where you can actuallydo two separate loads, either separate or simultaneously.
So the idea with this is youhave your normal large wash that you can do in the maincompartment and then up top, you can use that for smallerthings, like delicates.
Now in the instance where youdon’t need to run a large wash you can simply run the top.
And what that’s gonna do issave both energy and water.
Now from there jumping fromhome tech to crazy tech, initially I thought theAcer $9,000 gaming laptop was the craziest thingI was gonna see at CES.
But that was overtaken byRazer’s Project Valerie, which is monstrous triplemonitor gaming laptop.
Now, unfortunately as of today,someone straight home aloned those laptops off theCES floor which is crazy, because one, if you sellit you’re gonna get busted.
And two, if you make a video,you’re gonna get busted.
So, really, the onlything I could think of, is someone looking forintel or secret information.
But either way whoever tookthose laptops should probably give them back.
Now as far as the techinside Project Valerie, this is crazy.
It is a single laptop that packs triple 4K, 17.
3 inch displays.
For those of you who loveto crunch numbers out there, that is a massive totalresolution of 11,520 x 2160.
Which is bonkers! Now powering this laptop is afull fledged Nvidia GTX 1080, which seemed to do the job really well.
I unfortunately, personally,did not get a hands on with it.
Rather, simply, I got toadmire it from a distance in a plexi-glass container.
So because of that, I reallydidn’t get a chance to see the displays open up like a Tesla Model X or really test gameplay.
But from what I can see,it looks really impressive.
Now initially on my latest video, I talked about a PC dream deskwith that crazy Acer Predator laptop but after seeing this,I think I’ve changed my mind and if you agree, let me knowby dropping a like down below.
Now next jumping fromtriple monitor craziness to a single display, if youlove pixels, take a deep breath.
Because Dell unveiled theirinsane 32 inch 8K display.
Now by itself, 8K sounds crazy but when you put it into perspective, it makes it all the more insane.
Because that is equivalentto four 4K monitors.
The total resolution is 7680x 4320 and if the visual of four 4K monitors wasn’t enough, that is equivalent to 16 1080p displays.
The only thing moremassive than the resolution on this monitor, is the price tag.
Which is coming in at nearly 5000 bucks.
Obviously this isn’t really geared for your average consumer.
The price tag is insane,you need two cables to drive this at 60 hertz and honestlyI don’t think the technology is quite there to use thison a day to day basis yet.
But practicality aside, ohmy god, seeing an 8K display up close is insane.
The amount of detail youcould see on this would blow your mind.
Where you could really seethat difference is where you would zoom in looking at apicture, and you’re thinking to yourself, yeah thatlooks good, it’s sharp.
But then holy crap, theyzoomed out, and you can see how massive that image was.
Now personally, as much as I love pixels, I don’t think this is somethingrealistically I’m gonna use anytime soon.
But if you had your choice,would you choose the crazy Razer triple monitor gaminglaptop or this 8K display? Now next up at number 4 issomething you might not expect.
I’ve been talking aboutlaptops, and 8K displays, but the gadget that I thoughtwas really cool was the Polaroid Pop.
If you haven’t checked themout yet, Instant Prints, have really made their way back.
But the problem is,especially with Polaroid, is those print outs werenever really true 3×4 size, but with their 80th anniversary, they have made their way back.
So with the Polaroid Pop,this shoots and prints, 3×4 instant photos using inkless paper.
It’s packing a 20 megapixelcamera with dual LED flash.
And while it’s not 4K, thiscan also record 1080p video.
Now the model I got to checkout was a pre-production unit.
So it did not power on.
But the actual productionmodel will also feature a 3.
9inch touch screen.
What I like about thisespecially, is the fact that it’s multi-function.
So obviously, you can takephotos with the built in camera, you can transfer wirelesslyfrom your phone to the pop.
But on top of that, thereis also an SD card slot, so you can transfer photos directly.
So it’s kind of funny, withall the crazy tech at CES, this is one of the thingsI was most excited for.
So once it drops, I willdefinitely get my hands on it.
Last up, at number five,brand new for CES 2017, is the Panasonic GH5.
The follow up to the highlysought after and loved GH4.
Now the big improvementswith the GH5 is that it now shoots 4K video up to 60 FPS.
Personally, I am team 24.
But where I could see 60FPS being really useful, is if you use that for slow motion.
What’s also cool is thefact that there is now internal image stabilization.
Which is actually really important.
We’ve seen that on Sony bodies.
But the idea here is insteadof image stabilization solely on the lens, it’s actuallyhappening inside the body.
And where this is really usefulis if you’re using a lens that doesn’t have image stabilization, that’s gonna add theelement to your shooting.
There are now also dual SDcard slots where you can record two separately or use as a backup.
And potentially the two biggestselling points of the GH5, are one the fact that thecrop factor is now removed and second that its supposedto perform better in low light.
Personally, I really didn’t geta chance to test it out much on the show floor.
And CES really isn’t thebest place to do that.
But the one thing I can attestto, regardless of testing or not is again the factthat the crop factor is gone, which is actually a really big deal.
Personally when it comes to that market, I tend to lean towardsthe Sony side of things.
But I’m really interested inseeing for the GH5 performs.
Either way though, a ton ofreally cool tech to kick off 2017 already.
Again, huge shout outto Samsung for making my coverage possible.
And as far as your favorite tech, let me know what that waswith a comment down below.
This is Jonathan and Iwill catch you guys later.
