Augmented reality? Super high-definition? The smartest of smart technology? Boy, it was easy for a gecko like me to feel a bit over my head at CES2012. Oh, yes, I’m not only an insurance spokesgecko. My journey across America has now led me into the thick of the Vegas tech blogging action as the newest WIRED Insider, reporting on the hottest tech and gadgets. As the “new gecko” around WIRED HQ, I’ve enjoyed all the lovely perks of the blogger life like covering CES2012 and attending the WIRED party. Not bad for my first job responsibilities.
CES kicked off with a lot of announcements, especially in the tablet world, with some new devices set to compete with the new lower-cost tablets of 2011. Sure, they’re still bigger than me, but that doesn’t mean I can’t have a lot of fun with them. From there, I saw plenty of TVs with updated 3-D capabilities and impressive wide-screen OLEDs that offer high-def viewing from all angles. OLEDs? Yes please!
Digital leaders also presented application processing chips that will make running augmented reality apps from mobile phones even easier. I can’t say that I fully understand it all, but I know this: 2012 is shaping up to be one incredible new year for technology! Now who will teach me to use it all?blog comments powered by Disqus
