Shape Shifting: Display Technology Morphs to 4K and Beyond

April 03, 2015
At January’s International CES it was clearly visible that the very nature of the TV business is changing. 4K Ultra High- Definition TV was the predominant screen throughout the Las Vegas extravaganza, but the exhibit halls and showcase suites were also dotted with “enhanced” 4K, 8K, Organic Light-Emitting Diodes (OLED), High Dynamic Range (HDR) video, shape-shifting screens, 21:9 ratio screens, no-glasses 3D, holograms and quantum dots (also known as nanoparticles). And that array doesn’t get into the innovations beyond “display” technology, making screens smarter, interactive and responsive—far beyond the traditional sales hype focused on mere...

Next-Gen Navigation

March 30, 2015
It’s a common refrain among car buyers: “Why do I need a built-in navigation system when I can use the maps app on my smartphone?” Now automakers are answering, turning factory-installed navigation systems and the maps that support them into crucial components of new advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and safety systems. No longer just a convenience item, in-dash navigation systems are evolving both technologically and strategically and someday will help drive not just autonomous vehicles, but new business models, as well.

Tech for a Night Out

March 13, 2015
Ready for the weekend? After working hard all week, Friday is finally here and there are only a few hours until the weekend. It’s time to try out that new restaurant everyone is talking about, catch up with some friends or just explore a part of the city you’ve always wanted to. If you’re planning on going out tonight, don’t forget the essentials to make sure you have a great time and have all your bases covered. Say at the last minute you got asked to stay at work just a little longer and your friends or family are already on the way to your house. How do you let them in? You don’t want them to wait outside for another hour or so. Good thing you have the...

Crowdfunding Kings

February 27, 2015
The new Pebble Time broke records after it was unveiled on Kickstarter this past Tuesday by raising its first million dollars in under an hour. This is coming three years after Pebble used Kickstarter to crowdfund its original smartwatch, which was the most-funded Kickstarter of all time until it was recently topped by Coolest Cooler. As of February 27, the Pebble Time has raised more than $11 million and still has 28 days to go. With success stories like this, crowdfunding becomes as much a marketing platform as it is a funding platform. Even though it has raised more than $11 million and is on track to be the most-funded of all time, Pebble is using Kickstarter to connect with its...

The Next Connected Spoke

February 09, 2015
You’re driving down the road with your pregnant wife in the passenger’s seat, and sensors in your car register that a vehicle on the right is about to hit her door. Your instinct is to swerve left, but there’s a child on a bike in your path. You don’t have to worry because your car instantly analyzes the situation and automatically takes control, maneuvering to minimize injury to everyone.   Sound wonderful? Unfortunately that dream of a totally connected vehicle that knows exactly what to do in all road situations is not a few years off. It’s in ...

Get Smart at Home

February 06, 2015
Want to be able to activate a hidden camera on your porch when someone presses your door bell and forward the video to your cell phone so you can see who is at your door? Use your smartphone’s speech recognition technology to turn on your house lights from your driveway? Or ask your washing machine to turn on when the electricity rate is cheapest? The smart home will be a key component of the Internet of Things (IoT), with analysts projecting that the IoT market could generate billions of dollars globally by 2020.
