As you know, everything in Las Vegas is a little out there. Inside the enormous Venetian hotel and casino there is a canal and gondoliers shuttle visitors along the interior canal, while singing.
This was taken with a Fujifilm W3, handheld, at probably 1/30th or 1/15th second (I didn’t check the EXIF) and ISO 800. The Fujifilm W3 becomes quite grainy at ISO 800 but it was needed in this poorly lit area.
However, 2 1/2 weeks after leaving CES with the flu, I continue to run a low grade fever and continue with a nagging cough. This has been hard to deal with – had to prepare and give my M.S. in software engineering thesis oral presentation while sick.
With the continued fatigue and headache from the flu, I just have not felt like going through my notes and photos and doing a good write up.
TV manufacturers Sony, LG and Samsung will focus mainly on OLED and Ultra HD and state that 3D technology is no reason for consumers to purchase a new TV. The manufacturers warn that this doesn’t mean that 3D isn’t important but that it had its peak time.
Lack of 4K content is going to be a similar problem to what happened for 3D. TV manufacturers would love to sell you a 4K TV as the earnings on 4K are likely to be much greater, for the foreseeable future. This is mostly about positioning products to earn greater profits.
We already see 3D sensing in Kinect and to some extent its used in smart phones and tablets. New technology intends to make it possible to sense a large amount of position information – to create new kinds of user interfaces, and for retail surveillance (systems that watch what each shopper touches within a store).
Kodak has licensed their brand name to JK Imaging, who will be introducing a new interchangeable lens micro four thirds, Kodak-branded camera, later in 2013. The camera will include Wi-Fi and simple connectivity to smart phones for social sharing.
Polaroid introduced an Android-based smart phone that will, by spring, accept micro four thirds lenses too. The Polaroid camera is different in that the image sensor is located in the camera lens, not the body, and will be located inside a micro four thirds adapter. The camera is manufactured by Sakar (based in New Jersey, and known also for the Vivitar brand name).
I can’t say I came away from CES feeling like the arrival of glasses-free 3D is imminent, but the prototypes are getting better. Maybe once the obsession with 4K television subsides, glasses-free 3D can be the next next big thing.
