Gregory Gallinat of Excelitas Technologies (a Veritas company), demonstrates their new DigiPile Thermopile Detector proximity sensor, ultra small consuming only 10 microamps, would for example enable a future smartphone to detect presence to turn itself on (not even need to touch the device like in the Moto X).

Bruno Maisonnier Founder of Aldebaran Robotics talks about his french autonomous humanoid robots, including the NAO Robot, an autonomous little humanoid robot that can interact emotionally. They are developing Robot hardware platforms, developing a Linux based operating system dedicated to humanoid robotics, understanding emotions, understanding dialog, an SDK and Tools to enable all developers to develop apps for the Humanoid Robots in their apps store.

ARM works with the ecosystem to support the game developers to take optimally advantage of the ARM Mali Graphics, GPU Compute. ARM is to be in the core of the future of Gaming. Already dominating in Smartphones and Tablets, most Smart TVs and Set-top-boxes also use ARM, most of them are becoming Home Consoles now also, quickly closing the gap with home consoles (from Nintendo/Sony/Microsoft). In the very near future, we will probably see most high-end video games running on ARM Powered devices. Here showing the Unity Engine running at 1080p smoothly at full framerates on Exynos5420 with ARM Mali-T628 with OpenGL ES 3.0. Working closely with developers, working closely with Google collaborating on the tools for development of advanced video games. Supporting the most advanced video-games on the latest Android.
Showing off the latest Applied Micro 64bit X-Gene ARM Server Development Board (which Rob Savoye of Linaro eagerly wants to start playing with), Dell's 64bit ARM Server solution running Fedora 19, working on a proof of concept for early 2014 for Dell's key cloud server customers (Google? Amazon?) before going into mass production (Dell already did some 32bit ARM Server tests in Europe with some customers), some things like Oracle JDK still has to fully come over (needs some tuning) to the platform. This is just me walking kind of randomly around some of the ARM Server demo area at the ARM Techcon. Then checking out the HP ARM Server booth, showing off some of the latest HP Moonshot ARM Server solutions also talked about in HP's Keynote at ARM Techcon, watch the official video of that keynote or my version (sitting on the front row).
James Bruce talks newly announced ARM Mali-T720 for Entry-level and new ARM Mali-T760 for High-end devices. ARM Mali-T720 brings GPU Compute OpenGL ES 3.0 to the entry level smartphone in the next 18-24 months. AmLogic now ships Mali-T450 in their new M802 chip. James Bruce talks further of what ARM can do for the user experience, talks designing benchmarks to measure the performance of the user experience vs certain benchmarks measuring things that aren't relevant to the user experience. The ARM Architecture ecosystem is amazing, for example, in Q2 2013, there were more ARM Cortex-A5 devices shipped than all x86 PC/Laptops combined in that quarter.
Glashion is a Google Glass project that allows you to buy fashion products that you are looking at. Look at any fashionable bag or dress on a bypasser or in a store, and then the app queries the ShopStyle API for similar matches based on object recognition technology. You simply tell Glass when you see a product, “Ok glass, I want this!” and you can then buy the product with a blink. At least that is their idea.
