Schumacher Electric Co. is cooperating with Motorola to create Modular Power System. The technology is developed by Schumacher and licensed by Motorola The power system uses aluminum Lithium ion batteries. Motorola-branded batteries promise a 50-percent increase in performance when jump-starting a car, hold their charge up to 25 percent longer than standard lithium power cells, and retain 85 percent of their capacity at temperatures as low as -58 degrees F., the company reported.

At the HDMI Licensing Administrator, Inc (HDMI LA) booth at CES 2019, they talk about the latest with HDMI 2.1 where at CES 2019 several companies announced the first 8K products from Samsung, LG, Sony, TCL, Konka, featuring some or all of the HDMI 2.1 features, including the 48Gbit/s spec cables supporting up to 8K60 uncompressed. At their booth, the Microsoft team presents the Microsoft Xbox One X and Xbox One S which has some HDMI 2.1 gaming features supported with its firmware update such as HDMI VRR and Auto Low Latency Mode to be taken advantage of with TVs that support HDMI 2.1 features such as the 2018 Samsung TVs available in the retail market.

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.
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.
