Laurent Alaguero of Auxens shows their latest version of OXI the Desktop productivity user interface for Android phone's external displays, such as here demonstrating running on the BQ Aquaris X2 Pro which has Displayport USB Type-C support. Here demonstrating OXI running with the Lapdock launched on crowdfunding on Indiegogo starting at $100. OXI can bring in and run Windows 10 apps in resizable Windows inside of this Android user interface, no need to boot all the way into a Windows 10 remote desktop just pulling in the needed Windows apps over the Internet, using virtualization, streaming, with servers that can nearby and served through Enterprise's existing Windows server infrastructure. The Windows 10 apps can feel like they are running locally on Android with minimal lag. Auxens is now reaching out to Smartphone manufacturers to try to pre-install OXI on shipping phones with Displayport USB Type-C support. Hopefully they can integrate by getting some API access with http://shadow.tech cloud PC service and hopefully OXI comes with the Cosmo Communicator that is being developed and which I filmed here
Colorii CH1 is the world's smallest USB Type C to 4K 30Hz HDMI adapter, it works with phone or laptop. Colorii also shows USB 3.0 to VGA adapter, USB 3.0 to HDMI/VGA dual display adapter, USB 3.0 to HDMI/DVI adapter and more at Colorii's CES 2019 booth. Colorii also shows the Lapdock project which is now as a working sample crowdfunding starting at $100 at http://igg.me/at/lapdock
Planet Computers are showing their latest prototype of the Cosmo Communicator now crowdfunding for $569 on Indiegogo here which is an upgrade of their very successful Gemini PDA which I used as my main phone for the past 9 months and you can see some videos I filmed about it here the Cosmo Communicator upgraded the CPU to MediaTek P70, Memory, the keyboard gets backlit, an external OLED display is added to be able to use the phone without having to open it, a fingerprint reader is added that is a combo with being a selection button, an external high quality 24 megapixel camera is now also default. The new design also allows for better antennas for a stronger LTE signal and possibly also for a stronger Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support too.
I did my first video about Li-Fi and about OLEDCOMM 5 years ago here it helped bring attention to this new technology, that basically functions a bit like Fiber light based data, but wirelessly. One LiFiMax access point and it's USB receiver can transmit 100mbit/s download and 40mbit/s upload, using invisible light. Their system srefreshes the LED light in a pattern up to billions of times per second that can be recognized and read by the receiver wirelessly in a room. This can remove the issue of interference that there is with Wi-Fi, and the waves of this system may also be less harmful, more secure and perhaps more efficient than Wi-Fi.
High resolution photo merges 8 pictures (using a trick with the IBIS motor) into a giant resolution photo and Panasonic's new HLG Photo mode is a new format to create HDR photography that can be viewed on any HLG compliant display. The display does not flip out and Panasonic is not yet demonstrating their AI contrast based autofocus performance. More specs will be announces up until the release date which is March 2019, the S1 and S1R are targetted more towards photography.
Michél Haese shows LAPSCREEN manufactured by faytech. This video also features Arne Weber, the managing founder of faytech. Here demonstrating Lapscreen with a Huawei P20, using the Smartphone's CPU/Memory?Connectivity and Battery to power the LAPSCREEN with its 12.5” FHD display, available both non-touch for around $200 and touch version for about $300, shipping in January. The concept is for Lapscreen to be so thin and lightweight it can fit inside an A4-envelope. LAPSCREEN displays the Huawei P20 either in work station mode with all the office tools or one can play any mobile games on a large 12.5” screen instead of the display of a tiny mobile phone. With just around 5W power consumption, the mobile phone's battery is enough to also run the LAPSCREEN for several hours on a charge, there is also a PD Power Delivery port on the Lapscreen to power the Lapscreen and charge the mobile phone at the same time.
Michél also presents the set up of using LAPSCREEN on different macbooks, showing how one can connect up to 4 LAPSCREENS to just one macbook. There is also an HDMI input on every LAPSCREEN, to connect any HDMI source, any media player, notebook, WiFi/Miracast-dongle, even game consoles like the Nintendo Switch or the iPhone via a lightning to HDMI-cable are perfectly presented on the LAPSCREEN too.
Now crowdfunding the Lapdock project on Indiegogo at http://igg.me/at/lapdock starting at $100. The future of Laptops will not have a powerful CPU in them but will be modular when you buy them, they can be powered by your phone, or you can buy a small compact ARM Powered internal or external Type-C Stick to run them off of. Laptops are all about getting a great keyboard, mouse and display, but the CPU, Memory, Connectivity, those things can be swapped according to progress in the industry. I will be posting updates on this project at http://Lapdock.net and on the Updates tab at http://igg.me/at/lapdock if this project gets funded by at least $100 thousand, then the suppliers in Shenzhen China will be able to deliver the Lapdock at this price. If Lapdocks can become a larger success with a lot of demand then prices will be able to reach sub-$100 for high quality components, high quality keyboard, mouse pad, display and batteries also that last at least 20 hours on a charge. With a lot of support, this concept will also bring high performance and affordable USB Type-C Sticks to run all sorts of productivity user interfaces based on Android (such as the OXI UI) or Linux OSes or even Microsoft can bring Windows support to the Lapdock. This form factor could also bring the developers who use development boards closer to the mass market consumers, as all work done around the development boards of the future (very compact and affordable USB Type-C Sticks) will directly be able to impact also how end consumers can use devices for actual real work and productivity. The Lapdock will also move Smartphone market more towards their "PC Mode" as Samsung and Huawei already support each their PC Modes, and that is great because Samsung and Huawei are the two biggest Smartphone manufacturers in the world, yet most consumers don't even know that the PC Mode is there. With Lapdocks, the performance of latest 7nm ARM Processors in phones will be tuned further for multi-window, multi-tasking and for running more advanced productivity apps on Android. 2019 will hopefully be the year where ARM Powered productivity finally reaches mass adoption and the mass market and I think that the Lapdock will be at the center point of that major electronics industry upgrade.
Nanosys CEO Jason Hartlove talks at Nanosys Silicon Valley headquarters, talks about how his company helped make Quantum Dots a success in the market, where it's going next. Topics include the story behind the development of the first quantum dot products, the quantum mechanics of how a quantum dot actually works, as well as a look at the long term roadmap for the technology from QDEF and QDOG to QDCC to QDEL displays of the future.
Nanosys has been at the center of the Quantum Dot universe from the beginning. Founded in 2001 by scientists from UC Berkeley and MIT who helped discover the technology in the early 1980’s, Nanosys finally solved the product/market fit for Quantum Dots by developing a simple component called QDEF.
Ten years ago Quantum Dots were a relative unknown. Mostly a research curiosity, the nanotechnology’s unique ability to convert energy into light captivated the imaginations of scientists who envisioned amazing applications in dozens of industries from solar to printing, to displays and to defense. But commercial success remained out of reach, even decades after its initial discovery. Fast forward to today, “Quantum Dot” is a household name and can be found plastered on the packaging for millions of TVs, monitors and tablets around the world.
