Toradex shows their upcoming Freescale i.MX7 based System on Module (SOM). The module is pin compatible with the existing Toradex Colibri Modules based on i.MX6, Vybrid, PXA and Nvidia Tegra. The i.MX7 is a heterogeneous asymmetric multicore system including a Dual-core ARM Cortex-A7 and a ARM Cortex-M4 microcontroller for real-time. The Toradex computer module will be available at the official i.MX7 launch early next year. Also first time in public, Toradex shows Microsoft Windows 10 IoT Core on an ARM based SOM which is designed to be used directly in volume. The module is based on a Nvidia Tegra 3 which is pin compatible with the I.MX7 and provides a fully HW accelerated DirectX driver.

Here I try on the Nvidia VR experience using the latest Oculus Rift Crescent Bay prototype, connected by a cable to a Desktop computer with a powerful Nvidia Geforce 980 Ti GPU and running a quite advanced Engine animated video demo in a 1440p "smartphone type" head-mounted display. Nvidia explains what they are doing for Virtual Reality, this could be quite a fun and advanced immersive gaming and 360 video experience. The latest Oculus Rift has sensors on it with a tracker to be mounted on the wall, detecting where exactly you are moving your head in the room.
Remix Android presented on this Jide 11.6” tablet that was launched on Kickstarter. Remix presents a multi-window UI and they say firmware-level changes to Android for combining tablet apps with productivity features for the Android convertible. Jide Remix is being made by a large software team in Beijing headed by 3 ex-Googlers and it is being manufactured by Foxconn. For now it's Nvidia Tegra4 based, and they are designing a next generation with a faster ARM processor and with a design that doesn't look as similar to a Microsoft Surface tablet.
Nvidia has launched their Nvidia Tegra X1 Octa-core ARM Cortex-A57/53 big.LITTLE based Nvidia Shield Android TV Home Console Set-top-box with their 256-core Maxwell GPU for and impressive 4K gaming experience. Right now due to Android limitations the gaming is limited at 30 frames per second, but this could be pushed to 60 frames per second through a firmware update if Android TV will support it soon enough, the Maxwell 256-core GPU should support it. Advanced Android games look quite good, it plays back 4K video.
Professor at Carnegie Mellon shows how Nvidia is using the Kepler GPU in Nvidia Tegra K1 to accelerate the offline accelerated voice recognition feature. The use is for faster, smoother speech recognition in the car.
