CES 2012

Wednesday, December 28th, 2011

The Consumer Electronics Show is without a doubt one of the biggest annual events in the world of technology.  CES 2012 will be held January 10-13, when thousands of companies and tens of thousands of participants will gather in Las Vegas to get up close and personal with the latest offerings from large and small electronics retailers.  There are always bound to be a few surprises, but show attendees can expect to see innovative products in the areas of smartphones, tablets, laptops, digital cameras and HDTVs. 

Interestingly enough, e-book readers are not expected make a strong showing like they did in 2009.  The niche is currently dominated by a handful of players who are holding steady with no major product announcements expected. 

CES 2012 should also be expected to highlight automotive and household technology.  Thanks to wireless networking, smartphones are becoming more integrated with consumers’ cars and homes.

Kopin Golden-i Headset Computer

Saturday, December 10th, 2011

The Golden-i is the world’s first hands-free mobile computer that’s head-mounted  on a headset.  This voice-activated computer runs a version of Windows and can communicate with any OS that supports wi-fi and Bluetooth.  It can activate laptops and other computers via the Internet or by using remote desktop access software.

The Golden-i uses a one-centimeter display screen that sits in just below the left or right eye.  It can be worn with safety-glasses or a helmet or hard hat.  Because the tiny screen is positioned to close to the eye, the display appears to be much larger.  The Golden-I also features a built-in camera and speaker.

Suggested use scenarios include construction sites, medical emergency situations, utilities service, sporting events and law enforcement.

Find out more about the Golden-i on the Kopin website.
