Nearly 3000 technology industry audiences and about 200 exhibitors convened at the Santa Clara convention center in silicon valley for the world’s largest emerging technology show hosted by IDTechEx, the leader in emerging technology research, consulting and events. The 2014 event featured Printed, Organic and Flexible Electronics, Wearable Technology, Graphene, Internet of Things, Super Capacitors, 3D Printing, Energy Harvesting and Storage among the topics at the conference and trade show. The event attracted attendees from 38 countries, featured over 215 presentations, over a dozen masterclasses taught by IDTechEx analysts and industry experts as well as networking events. The show floor also featured a Demonstration Street that showcased state of the art products and technologies from 45 companies, the Manufacturing Street showed products, processes and manufacturing equipment and offered attendees the opportunity to immerse themselves into the world of emerging technologies, to learn and conduct business. Mr Vijay Ullal, semiconductor industry leader, formerly President and COO of Fairchild Semiconductor and former Group President of Maxim Integrated, together with IDTechEx Chairman Dr. Peter Harrop, inaugurated the show and welcomed the attendees. Dr. Khasha Gaffarzadeh, head of consulting at IDTechEx takes us on a tour of the show floor.

Guillaume Chansin (@GChansin) is one of the analysts from IDTechEx. We meet him in Santa Clara where the company is holding their annual US event. We talk about what we will see during the conference and why printed electronics can help make better wearable devices. He also explains printed sensors, flexible displays, and why we will not see flexible LCD anytime soon.
Technology Analyst James Hayward introduces the topics and themes of IDTechEx’s co-located conference: ‘Wearable Technology LIVE! 2014’. Co-location of the event with others covering topics including Printed Electronics, Energy Harvesting and Storage, Internet of Things and 3D Printing brings together all of the relevant emerging technologies that will cause the wearable technology market to reach $70 billion in the next decade.

Dr Jon Harrop and Rachel Gordon, analysts at IDTechEx, explain how unique software developed by IDTechEx shows the range of performance of different 3D printing technologies from 208 3D printer suppliers. This identifies unmet needs/gaps in the 3D printer market, by technology type and other parameters. There is also huge innovation in materials used for 3D printing – and still big needs. IDTechEx have also found that 3D printer projects on Kickstarter have raised almost $20million to date. Learn more at www.idtechex.com.

Some of the advantages highlighted are 10-second boot time, Fast app loading, Multi-window UI, Fast Web browsing, up to 2560x1600 display, H265 4K playback, 4K HDMI2.0 at 60fps, Turstzone PlayReady HDCP Widevine DRM, Dolby audio, 13 Megapixel back camera and some of the Mali-T764 GPU features such as Transaction Elimination, Adaptive Scalable Texture Compression, ARM Frame Buffer Compression, Stereoscopic 3D Game Driver and the POP-Star Searching Entertainment Engine. You can read more about it at http://www.rock-chips.com/a/en/products/RK32_Series/2014/0504/484.html and you can watch all the RK3288 videos that I posted thus far at http://armdevices.net/?s=RK3288
For sale all over China right now below $111 (680RMB), the iPhone 6 Plus clone runs on a MediaTek MT6582 Quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 with Mali-400 GPU, 1GB RAM and 8GB Flash. Here's the special unveiling at Apple Headquarters. It's literally 10 times cheaper than the official iPhone 6 Plus selling at about $1100 in China, is it 10 times worse? I don't think so. Antutu rates it at 17829 which is about the same performance as a Nexus 4 which is also probably about the same as an iPhone 5 in terms of performance. If I receive at least 100 comments and re-shares on Google+ of this video, I may consider doing a bend test on it to see if it is better designed than the real one.
