Granted, Mitsubishi too, has one of those 4K prototypes, […]


Sony FDR-AX1 4K Handycam
[CEATEC 2013] You can more or less see it coming from afar – where there are 4K TVs on the horizon, it goes without saying that there will be devices for the consumer to create 4K content.

[CEATEC 2013] Mitsubishi has paraded their 4K LaserVue LCD TV on the CEATEC showfloor, and while there was a “No photography allowed” sign shown, it seemed that nobody bothered to enforce this particular request, so here we are with a photo of Mitsubishi’s very first attempt at a 4K LCD TV. Of course, this remains as a prototype at this point in time, where it has a release date that […]

Kyocera Torque
[CEATEC 2013] All right, I do know that the Kyocera Torque was released earlier this year, and for folks in the US, this is one handset from Sprint that has gained a reputation to be a tough device, so much so that even TV personality Bear Grylls has endorsed it in an ad campaign.

MURATA/Elliptic Labs Ultrasound Gesture Control
[CEATEC 2013] I still remember how Nintendo was ridiculed by different segments of the gaming community when they first released the Nintendo Wii which sports motion control using a nunchuk as well as the Wiimote.

Nintendo was […]
