With CES 2018 about to commence, Samsung has just unveiled some of the coolest pieces of technology it’s going to debut at the world's largest consumer electronics expo.
Samsung C-Lab, the in-house experimental tech arm, will showcase three new devices at CES, the like you’ve never seen before, and each wildly different from the next. Each has been developed by Samsung employees under the C-Lab incubation initiative, with funding aid from the company.
Sound-Ray Directional Speakers
The first device called Sound-Ray (or S-Ray) is one that merges the privacy of headphones with the convenience of Bluetooth speakers. It’s a speaker that projects sound in a singular direction, so that only the person it’s aimed at can hear what’s playing. Basically, you can blast some Nirvana on a comfortable speaker without disturbing your roommate working a few feet away.
It comes in three variants, the S-Ray Mini, S-Ray Handy, and S-Ray Neck Band. The Handy is a portable speaker, while the Mini comes in the form of a smartphone cover and the Neck band is, obviously, worn around your neck.
GoBreath is actually a medical device for people who’ve damaged their lungs. Conceptualised by a doctor at the Samsung Medical Center, it’s a portable device with an accompanying app to let users breathe easier. The product can, according to Samsung, “teach patients basic techniques such as inspiration, coughing or deep breathing,” as a way to rehabilitate their lungs after an accident or surgery.
Relumino is one way VR is being applied to medical devices. It’s basically a pair of battery-powered glasses that help those with visual impairments see better. An onboard processor renders images from a built-in camera and projects it onto the device’s display.
They’re meant to have the form factor of traditional eyeglasses, but the device prototype right now features a VR headset with a phone inside. Eventually, the completed product is supposed to improve image clarity by highlighting outlines, inverting colours, remapping footage from blind spots to visible areas and reducing glare from certain colours.
