Belenos Clean Power, a subsidiary of Swatch Group, has developed a new type of battery based on vanadium, with electrical energy storage capacity up to 50 to 100% higher capacity than the battery technologies that exist today. Electric cars and drones might start using Belenos batteries starting this year already, production of Belenos batteries will start this Summer by Swatch Group subsidiary Renata in Switzerland, further Belenos batteries may also get produced in Asia depending on the demand. George Clooney and the Swiss astronaut Claude Nicollier are on Belenos's board of directors, Belenos is 51% owned by Swatch Group and will be put on the Hong Kong stock market with a possible valuation between 5 and 20 Billion dollars. The goal is to power Swatch Smartwatches and other wearables with the Belenos battery, creating a Smartwatch and wearable technologies that never needs to be recharged.
As a half-Swiss, I hope Swatch will release smart watches to put Apple Watch to shame, made in a really smart way, with Swatch's own ultra low power displays or with E Ink behind the dials of a Swatch Sistem51 based automatic watch, and with low power Bluetooth and Novasentis flexible actuator vibrations in the wrist band. Part of the watch may function as energy harvester, perhaps solar on the watch casing/sides, to recharge the Bluetooth low energy and E Ink or other low power display.

Microsoft Windows 10 IoT Core is Windows 10 for the IoT market. Windows 10 IoT Core is free, Windows 10 IoT Core Pro is licenced and sold to OEMs like Inventec here showing their Qualcomm APQ8009 powered Inventec Avatar also connecting to Microsoft Azure, bringing advanced Bluetooth beacon platform with Wi-Fi cloud access to upload the log on Azure. Windows 10 IoT Core is also shown running on Raspberry Pi. From a Universal Windows app a developer can talk directly to the sensors and modules on the Raspberry Pi. Windows 10 IoT core is Windows 10 that can run on lower spec ARM devices, taking up about 200megabytes of space, can run on just 256MB RAM.
Microsoft is proud to present their Windows 10 Continuum running super smoothly on Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 based Microsoft Lumia 950 and Microsoft Lumia 950XL, the Microsoft branded devices resulting from the acquisition of Nokia, following a huge work by Microsoft together with their partners such as Qualcomm, to bring a full Windows 10 experience to ARM, powering the future of the Desktop and the Laptop through an ARM Powered smartphone, outputting a full Windows experience to an external display using DisplayPort over USB Type-C through a desktop dock or a laptop dock.
Backwards compatibility of x86 Windows apps can be supported through a cloud solution, such as the one HP is providing with their HP Elite x3 Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 based Windows Continuum phone coming out a few months from now.
I believe the best solution for Microsoft will be to support Windows 10 on Android, so when you dock an Android phone through a desktop dock or a laptop dock, then Microsoft needs to make sure that a full Windows 10 Continuum on ARM experience can be outputted from the Android phone on that secondary display. Microsoft needs to make Windows 10 an "external-only" home replacement which needs to work on any Android device.
Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) Executive Director Bill Lempesis (who I previously interviewed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4PGoVR3ENo) introduces DisplayPort 1.4 A/V standard, which VESA developed, with input and cooperation from more than 230 global members. DP 1.4 includes a number of next-generation features, including capabilities for High Dynamic Range (HDR) and 8K video across the USB-C connector. It also features, for the first time, VESA’s Display Stream Compression Standard (DSC) standard, which enables up to 3:1 video compression with visually lossless performance. Stephane Boisclair, senior hardware designer for Hardent, provides an in-depth description of the latest DSC specification update, v1.2. A VESA member company, Montreal-based Hardent develops IP cores to support DSC encoding and decoding. DSC 1.2, which supports up to 16 bits per color and HDR, has great implications for high-end TVs and PCs, as well as automotive applications, where the growing number of camera sensors requires less cabling and greater range.
