Five years ago, Google CEO Eric Schmidt proclaimed that laptops would become disposable. We’re nearly there. Starting today, you can buy a new Chromebook for just $150—the cheapest price ever. And this spring, there’s a $250 Chromebook coming that looks pretty incredible.
2013 is shaping up to be a huge year for huge televisions. Almost every major brand is rolling out gigantic sets and packing them with four times the resolution of current TVs. One curved display is even redefining what constitutes a "flat screen" TV, period. Here's what to watch in 2013.
Hisense's "Transparent 3D" display technology creates the crazy effect of incorporating real-life objects into a video image. The 40-inch demo unit, in the image above, could be how you window-shop in the future. It's so cool looking. I only wish there was something better to do with it.
Hisense is a Chinese company you may or may not have heard of. But they've jumped in on what seems to be the prevailing trend of CES with six UHD 3D TVs.
There's little doubt Sony's monstrous 84-inch 4k TV will be a high resolution atom bomb of a TV. There's also no doubt it costs $25,000, about as much as an actual atom bomb. Hisense is selling a 4k unit for under $6,000. Do the math.
If you're lucky enough to get a pair of 3D glasses with your fancy new 3D TV, chances are good that they're hideous. So this year, I decided to scour CES for 3D specs that weren't embarrassingly awful. And I found them, in a place I never would have expected.
