Amazing elements of a very near future
Virtual reality, augmented reality artificial intelligence robotics vehicles without a driver a growing universe of intelligent devices that will connect with each other thanks to the Internet of Things. Sometimes it seems that in the future the only thing that is left over is the human being. Fortunately, judging by the news presented today at the inauguration of CES Asia, the eastern edition of CES Las Vegas technology fair, machines are still at the service of people. Of course, not always the way we expect it.
For example, the X Sleep smart bed uses dozens of sensors spread over the mattress and pillow to analyze user behavior while sleeping. After processing all the data and asking him to describe the quality of his dream through a form filled in the mobile phone. The application accesses medical patterns that the company is updating in the cloud and determines which the problems that prevent a dream pleasurable are. The diagnosis shows it through the app. As logically, the user can do little about it when he sleeps the mattress, itself makes small movements during the night to modify or correct the movements that prevent rest.
Cowa Robot also seeks that we do not get tired. But this time when we travel, because it is a suitcase that you hardly have to touch. The S1 follows its user as if it was a faithful mascot, and is able to calmly overcome obstacles along the way. It uses several sensors that are located in the handle: a camera, a proximity sensor, sonar, an accelerometer, and a GPS. That allows you to never get lost or fall down the stairs, which can easily be located if we decide to leave it in a specific place. That we follow without problem when we walk or when we ask with the mobile to come and look for us. Two of its six wheels are motorized and only work when the handle is not touched. It has a range of 20 kilometers and a speed of 7.2 kilometers per hour. So, although we run through the airport,
It also includes 4 USB ports for charging electronic devices thanks to its 24,900 mAh battery which is charged in less than five hours. Soon the R1 will arrive, and we will continue to create new models to make them lighter and more autonomous. What Yan cannot say is whether he can be used as carry-on luggage now that the administration of Donald Trump wants to require passengers to access the plane with a mobile phone as the only electronic device.
Without a doubt, the smartphone will be for a long time the remote control of our lives. It serves to handle the drones that abound in CES Asia, and among them the new undersea devices for domestic use that can capture our diving on the beach and even dives to several tens of meters deep, and to immerse ourselves in the world of the virtual reality, that is developing its potential little by little.
However, the young people at H + Technology do not welcome a future in which we play with the mobile phone to the face. That is why they have developed what they consider a parallel future for video games, the holographic console Holus. This pyramid uses four screens of 4K resolution to create very realistic holograms with which we can play as in a traditional video game. As the pyramid is made of glass, up to four players can participate – one on each side – and, more importantly and fun, faces can be seen. Certainly, the quality of the holograms impresses. They give the feeling of being real objects. Now, the company has designed only three specific games for this prototype, but the goal is that any two-dimensional game that can be used in a mobile device is translated by the machine and converted into a hologram. We also believe that Holus has very interesting educational applications, and it can be attractive to companies that want to make presentations that go beyond the typical Power Point.
