Razer Tomahawk N1
Razer arrived at CES with the launch of its first compact desktop computer. This is the Tomahwk N1 , a team of small dimensions that has been designed with Intel taking advantage of the new motherboard with reduced form factor and slot connection released in the future NUC 9 Extreme. Razer’s proposal is larger in size than Intel, however, partly with an advantage, since in this box we can connect large graphics cards, such as the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super that is included.
Q950TS QLED 8K, Samsung’s frameless TV
The frames have disappeared on Samsung’s new TV. It is something that many users have been asking for years and today, finally, it is a reality. Samsung’s new Q950TS QLED 8K unveils a frameless Infinity Screen design that is spectacular to watch, bringing the speakers to a mere 15 millimeters thick.
The panel occupies 99% of the front of the TV, so when viewed from 3 meters the tiny bezel disappears completely. It has a Quantum 8K processor to rescue the image at the panel resolution if needed and a host of technologies related to artificial intelligence and the way in which the sound is taken care of.
Vision-S, the Sony car
Sony making cars? More or less. The Japanese brand has partnered with a large list of companies with experience in the motor world to create the Vision-S , a platform that serves to demonstrate everything Sony has to say in the motor world. It is a representation of the vision that the manufacturer has where mobility is going, and if you thought that mobile phones were the technological top that a human reached, it is because you have not seen where today’s vehicles are going in day.
The result is a spectacular vehicle with an endless list of sensors (33 in total including Sony CMOS sensors), an ultra-panoramic screen that covers the entire dashboard and a 360 Reality Audio sound system that delivers surround sound in each seat. There is no lack of software led by artificial intelligence, LiDAR detection systems and a whole arsenal of technology with which to enjoy maximum security and the best multimedia equipment. Will we ever see it on the roads?
Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold
Folding fever continues to expand and the next to present its flexible device has been Lenovo.

At the moment the model presented at CES is a prototype, but they intend to launch a crowdfunding campaign in the coming months.
Bosch’s intelligent sun visor
When we talk about technologies applied to vehicles we think of radar and autonomous driving systems, however, Bosch’s latest idea could interest you much more. It is a transparent windshield equipped with an LCD panel formed by independent cells that will be activated to make only in your eyes.
In this way, the useful surface is optimized to continue to have visibility even with the panel deployed in front of us. A camera is responsible for detecting the driver’s face and calculates the cells that must be activated to avoid the reflection of the sun in the eyes. Super ingenious
