Nissan shows their own self driving car similar to Google's but without the volodyne radar system. Adding the technology to cars requires few changes to a car. The question is to know how far they are with development and if they can show this car on real roads in real traffic soon like Google does or not.

Here's the latest Sonostar E Ink smartwatch prototype. The Bluetooth 4.0 data connection and E Ink screen seem to be working, now the main challenge I think is going to be app support, how Android is going to send over which data to the E Ink screen, there needs to be a Wearable Computer protocol for Android, one in which things like app notifications, small versions of apps can automatically be sent over to such a smaller display as this E Ink Bluetooth 4.0 smartwatch.

Kyocera displays a wide range of products based on its fine ceramics technology. Highlights of the booth included the company’s new 1mm ultra-thin Smart Sonic Sound piezo film speaker, and its newest mobile phones featuring the Smart Sonic Receiver technology which transmits clear voice reception via vibrations on the display screen. These Smart Sonic technologies utilize a piezoelectric ceramic actuator to create new ways to provide audio in consumer electronics. Also, as an established player in the solar energy field, Kyocera plans to launch one of the largest mega solar power plants in Japan this fall. Furthermore, the company sells a wide range of electronic components, and even makes recrystallized gemstones which are used as decorative materials in various products such as watches and cars.

Honda UNI-CUB unicycle robot is an amazing motorized self-balancing unicycle mobility device, it can hold 100 Kilograms or 220 pounds. The robot itself would most likely be released next year and the price is not yet known. The robot itself needs to be optimized for people of higher weight. The Robot itself can be controlled with a smartphone or tablet.
Unfortunately it costs $300'000. But it sure looks awesome. 8K 60p video recording is only possible with this camera on this planet. Just about Japanese NHK may also have some 8K camera of some kind but they also use Astro's technology in that. Astro is a Tokyo based advanced video device engineering company. They make the new reference designs that all other TV and Camera companies used to benchmark and test commercial products that are being launched with 4K and 8K support. Astro was also one of the first manufacturers of 4k monitors and 4k cameras. When 8k displays become avaialable Astro will release an 8k monitor. Astro does not make components. Astro uses field-programmable gate array (FPGA) rather than mass produced processors, that is to get the fastest time to market while companies then optimize processes on processors that get used in cheaper mass market products that get sold worldwide.
Brief explanation by Astro of each product featured in the second part of this video:
