Faraday Future FF91
Here he is, a competitor to Tesla cars. Finally, the concept of the car was brought to mind and made into a commercial series, although the series is still limited – for now, it is planned to release 300 units, and then – as it goes. The range and speed are impressive – 700 km with the ability to accelerate to a hundred km/h in just 2.39 seconds.
While the cost of the car is not known, the Tesla name is somehow more recognizable and has gained trust among users. But the appearance of another competitor in the electric car market once again confirms the prospects of this direction.
Dell monitor with 8K resolution
Still haven’t bought a 4K monitor? And here they have already presented it with 8K! Dell has a model UP3218K with a diagonal of 32 inches and a resolution of 7680×4320. A huge monitor with today’s highest resolution
It is clear that this is a monitor for professionals – there is a contrast ratio of 1300: 1, a brightness of 400 cd/m2, and a frequency of 60 Hz. In general, technically, this is an incredibly cool thing, but the cost of $5,000 is clearly not affordable for every user.
Panasonic GH 5
The new camera was announced at the Photokina 2016 exhibition, but then not all the details were revealed and the sample at the exhibition was more of a prototype than the final product. Now everything is known, even that the body will cost about 2 thousand dollars, and in this case – every cent is justified.
The Lumix GH5 will focus twice as fast as the Lumix GH4 thanks to a combined autofocus system. Plus improved work with images at high ISO values.
The camera is equipped with a matrix stabilization system. This is mega-cool for all videographers, because the picture in the video will be very smooth. The main feature of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH5 will be the ability to record video in 4K at 60 frames per second. Other manufacturers were limited to 30 fps for such a resolution, which means that there was practically no possibility to slow down the video sequence without harming the smoothness of the picture.
Acer Predator 21 X gaming laptop
Acer presented another groundbreaking gaming notebook of the Predator series – 21 X. It is huge. And this is the main thing you need to know about him. It is unrealistically large – weighing 8 kg – and expensive – with a price tag of about 9 thousand dollars!
You pay this amount for a significant set of characteristics – Intel Core-i7 of the seventh generation and two powerful NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 X graphics. The maximum amount of RAM that you can stuff inside is 64 GB, while the memory is class DDR4.
The picture is displayed on a stunning curved IPS display. Yes, yes, a curved display in a laptop! At the same time, at 21 inches diagonally, they chose a resolution of 2560 × 1080 and did not miss it – the picture turns out to be just a bomb. Five fans, Tobii eye tracking technology, and a powerful audio system with four speakers and two subwoofers complemented the laptop.
Asus Zenfone AR smartphone
Perhaps, the Asus company pleased with the most interesting smartphones at the CES 2017 exhibition. ZenFone AR with support for augmented reality technologies of the Google Tango project was especially impressive.
On the back of the smartphone is a block with a set of sensors and cameras. The main camera received a 23 MP Sony sensor, as well as optical and electronic image stabilization systems, so shoot at night, on the move or even while running – the photos should come out clear and sharp. The cool camera is complemented by a depth sensor and a motion capture sensor, which are required for Google Tango to work.
The smartphone runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 system with 8 GB of RAM. The AMOLED display with a diagonal of 5.7 inches received almost the maximum today’s QHD resolution.
