In 2017 the TV Is Just a Fancy Ass Computer Display

We’ve seen some incredible TVs at CES this year: Stunning screens that practically melt your eyeballs. But the real stars of the show haven’t been the displays. Instead, the TVs are remarkable for their designs. The coolest TVs of CES 2017 pulled all the guts of the TV out of the display hardware, and in the process effectively completed the modern television’s transition to a giant ass computer monitor.

Razer’s Project Ariana Is the Biggest Gaming Idea We’ve Seen in a While

VR is cool. VR is expensive. VR is not quite ready for our frail little bodies. So let’s forget about VR and get excited about other hyper immersive gaming experiences — like Razer’s new concept, Project Ariana, a 4K projector that splashes entire virtual worlds onto the wall of your home.

Turn Your Apple Watch Into a Tiny Macintosh Computer While it Charges

Turning the Apple Watch on its side while it’s charging overnight puts it in Nightstand Mode so you can always see the time. But with Elgato’s amusing new W3 stand, instead of a tiny alarm clock, your Apple Watch becomes a miniature replica of the original Macintosh computer on your bedside table. Read More >>

Forgetting a £80,000 Pair of Diamond-Saturated Headphones on a Plane Would Be Tragic

Thanks to Onkyo, throwing on a pair of fancy rose gold Beats headphones is no longer a status symbol. Compared to Onkyo’s new Diamond Headphones which will be available — to a select few — for somewhere around £80,000, those rose gold ear goggles you were so proud of might as well be just another boring pair of white iPhone earbuds.

This Batshit Sports Car Was 3D Printed From Laser-Melted Metal

The hype around consumer 3D printers has mostly died down, but that hasn’t stopped the startup Divergent3D from barrelling full steam ahead in the industrial printing world. The company debuted the first 3D-printed supercar—the Blade–two years ago and has since continued developing its printing methods.

This LG Smart Fridge Has a Windows Brain

Last year, Samsung embedded a giant tablet in the front of a fridge and called the fridge smart. People kind of bought it, and there was much hype. This year Samsung is hoping that some software updates to that fridge tech will set it apart. But it won’t. Instead the Samsung smart fridge must suffer. Because LG one-upped Samsung and made Windows and Android refrigerators. Read More >>

My First Ride in a Self-Driving Car Was Harrowing as Hell

The future of city driving—at least in theory—sounds amazing. We’ll have digital assistants in our vehicles to book last-minute restaurant reservations, and we’ll never have to touch a steering wheel again because our cars will drive themselves. At CES, I got a glimpse of how this technology is coming along, and though it was in the context of a carefully designed demo rather than a real-life experience on the city streets, I walked away thinking that a driverless society is a long, long time away.

We Need to Be Inventing More Robots That Serve Humans Delicious Frozen Yogurt

Instead of building and designing bomb-laden autonomous drones, or humanoid robots like ATLAS who are probably going to overthrow humanity in a couple of years, researchers should be inventing robots like the Frobot vending machine that only exists to serve up frozen yogurt. Read More >>
