This year Samsung showed that they have their finger on the pulse of what’s important to today’s technology users with multiple reveals.

With so many social networks focusing on video, Samsung’s new Sero Rotating TV is just the break from your phone you didn’t know you were looking for.

With the intuitive rotating of the Sero’s screen, you’ll be able to seamless go from watching a YouTube video horizontally to your new TikTok obsessions latest post from the comfort of your couch. If this isn’t the future we’re not sure what is.
Samsung also introduced CES 2020 to the Ballie robot, who follows you around with the sole purpose of making your life just a little easier. Designed to seamlessly integrate and communicate with your Samsung appliances, Ballie has the ability to wake you up in the morning, ensure your coffee has been percolated and even keep your dog company whilst you’re out for the day.
Sony unveiled the new PS5 logo which was met with mixed reactions, but what really got our attention was the reveal of their electric concept sedan. That’s right Sony unveiled a CAR on stage at CES 2020!
Whilst the Vision-S is still a concept care Sony went all out with kitting it out with all of their automotive technology. This includes 33 sensors inside and out of the vehicle with the aim to not only detect hazards in the road ahead but to also detect driver fatigue with a lane departure warning system to keep its driver as safe as possible.
Apart from ensuring driver safety, the Sony Vision-S comes kitted out with 360-degree Reality Audio radiating sound in all directions throughout the interior of the car for the most immersive audio experience possible. The dashboard is another thing of beauty with all the driving information you need to operate the vehicle presented on a full-width display.
While this is a concept car and will likely not go into production, the unveiling of the Vision-S is Sony’s idea of the future of automotive technology.
That’s all from us on CES 2020, but we can’t help but feel that if this is how we’re starting the new decade in terms of tech, it’s going to be a very exciting decade for sure!
