Here's a booth tour at the Qualcomm CES 2017 Booth, showing some of the features that Qualcomm is introducing with their 10nm Snapdragon 835 processor, the first processor to use the "Built on Cortex" technology ARM License. Qualcomm's 10nm Kryo 280 might be built (my speculation) on quad ARM Cortex-A73 and quad ARM Cortex-A53, but customized by Qualcomm with their own design features on top, or throughout, including also Qualcomm's own memory controllers and Qualcomm's new X16 Gigabit LTE Baseband system. Qualcomm X16 Baseband supports up to Gigabit 1000mbit/s download speed and 150Mbps upload speed. It can function over a mix of licensed and unlicensed carrier spectrum. At the Qualcomm booth, this video also shows off some of the other awesome features that Qualcomm is making available with Snapdragon 835, includingn HDR10 4K60p HDMI 2.1a support and potentially HDR ready displays for smartphones to come, Project Tango and similar depth sensing for 6-degrees of freedom VR experiences merging the virtual world with the real world, turning VR into AR. Some other new multimedia features include live real-time stitching of 360 video at 4K 60 frames per second (possibly encoding with H265) which could enable the most advanced 360 video recording, also possibly recording 360 audio. Then combining 3 microphones to design directional audio recording similar to a shotgun microphone, improving the electronic image stabilization functionality (now to version 3.0) and deep neural networks run on the device for integrating advanced computer vision in the smartphone.
Epson Movierio Pro is a combination of sensors and cameras to provide a VR-like experience. The Moverio is meant for industrial settings where information about their work could be displayed on the screen in real time. Marketed as a “smart headset”, Moverie Pro resembles Google Glass a lot but is a lot more limited in scope. It uses Android and has a battery life of 4 hours.
The Epson Movierio here is demonstrated through its applications; we see the use of the glasses in instantly producing translations of the words that are spoken to it. The headset is also capable of introducing depth to images like with augmented reality (AR) solutions.
Forum 8 shows their driving simulation on Oculus VR headsets, allowing people to drive around the streets of Tokyo using gaming setups, consisting of a steering wheel and a pedal box. The company’s main focus is to develop interactive 3D VR simulation and modeling software.

Novasentis CEO introduces their flexible, thin, light, multi output haptic technology, here demonstrating how it may be used to enhanse sensing for AR/VR applications where you already have video and audio, and the haptic feedback that can be customized for each finger and programmed so that you can get a variety of "sensations", smart variable haptic frequencies can emulate the feeling of touching different materials in the AR/VR world. Francois did not name his customers but they are working with companies that are making AR/VR devices, gaming controllers and wearable devices. I have previously video blogged about the flexible wearable devices and they are making further progress with that application also where the haptic actuators are embedded into the smart watch strap. I can think of many more applications for this technology including smart clothing. Watch my channel to hear latest updates about Novasentis that is the only company that has this type of technology.
Movidius provides machine vision technology, they released Myriad 2, they claim to be the industry’s first always-on vision processor. It delivers high-performance computational imaging and visual awareness in devices where every last drop of battery power counts, performing at under 1.2W of power means Myriad 2 can be deployed into tiny IoT devices such as smart cameras, drones and wearables, featuring a balance between programmable and hard wired elements, giving developers immediate access to its advanced vision processing core, while also allowing them to develop proprietary capabilities through the Myriad development platform. Movidius is being acquired by Intel, you can read more here. Movidius won the Best IoT Technology development award at IDTechEx USA 2016, you can read more here.
