Please join us every night of CES at 10pm PT Pacific Time to listen to our news program with my co-host Cecile Tamura. This link below is the replay from July 5th’s 10pm News.
On July 5th our first invited guest was the CEO of NewSight Reality, Phil Garfinkle, and perhaps others like yourself if you show up.
Today at CES I found a lot of companies in the AR, VR, & Metaverse space. Tomorrow I am planning to demo a new Augmented Reality Eye Wear from NewSight Reality.
It is described as the ‘first-of-its-kind augmented reality technology that was built small enough to fit in the everyday design of eyewear. Up until today, AR has only been possible in clunky headsets, but the TOM technology developed by NewSight Reality uses a less than 2mm thick glass that allows a combination of the real world and the digital world through the eyeglass lens.’
Today at CES I interviewed Dr. Mathias Müller, Founder of Blickfeld Lidar at CES, you can watch that interview below. He has a small edge device capable of doing striking the right balance of features for clients who have specific depth & object classification needs.
This was hands down the best Augmented Reality Vehicle demo that I got to try at CES. Better than Google maps AR on the phone because the display was big and it was in the wind shield of the vehicle. #CES
See the video here:
CYVISION has a great Augmented Reality in a car demo. There were 3D holograms in the windshield of the car, and they appeared on the street in front of me (overlayed on a video of the street) AR in the windows of cars is the future
VRGINEERS (XTAL VR Headset)
I interviewed Marek Polčák, CEO of VRgineers, maker of the VR headset called XTAL, he reveals his latest products that ship with XTAL. It’s very impressive.
I walked through the Samsung booth at CES. I saw a great example vision of Augmented Reality in the car. They had some cool projection mapping technology, and lots of good looking watches, folding smart phones, and bright microled displays.
At the Industrial Technology Research Institute booth I tried out the live motion capture that was transferred to my younger female avatar on the screen in front of me. You can see how it went.
Hyundai + Boston Dynamics + Microsoft Mesh
Hyundai is in a sense promising us a future where robots will be remote hands connecting the Metaverse back to the real world, and even to other planets, so we can visit Mars in a day, instead of in six to nine months or however long it takes to travel there. (How long does it take to travel to Mars?)
Hyundai partnered with Boston Dynamics to bring to the world some very impressive new robots. Until CES 2022 I hadn’t seen anything this good in robotics.
Another great video of the Hyundai & Boston Dynamics partnership in action
A video compilation of more fun moments at the Hyundai booth
At CES I went to the Canon booth and tried out the result of their dual fish eye lens inside an Oculus Quest. The image was 3D 180 and super crisp. This product is great for VR film makers I think. It’s on my list of things to buy this year.
I shot this video during the conference at CES yesterday but I’m sharing it for the first time today. You can read more about it in the previous article.
The John Deere Self Driving Autonomous Production Ready Anomaly detecting tractor for automating farm labor.
I tried the Sleep Number bed and Microsoft Hololens 2.
The Sleep Number bed was great, I want one, I’m getting one, the Hololens 2 illustrated for me a great way to create a presentation that business’s can give to their customers in person.
Thanks for reading.
