[CES 2018] While we expected that companies like LG, Samsung, Sony, Sharp, and so on to announce new display technology at CES 2018, NVIDIA actually surprised us when they have announced their own displays as well.

[CES 2018] HP has been pioneering the field of object-scanning in the PC space since 2014. We covered HP’s efforts with the HP Sprout Pro in 2016, followed by the HP Sprout G2 just last year (watch our demo video).

Virtual reality headsets are all the rage these days. However, the proper headsets require you to be tethered to a PC. You may have a very powerful desktop that can easily run VR experiences but it’s not mobile so you can’t take it anywhere with you.
