We posted this video in 2012, but we now truly believe that 2013 will be the year to “Leap”. The solution looks and apparently works fantastically. There was some buzz around it in 2012 but this year with a suspected retail price of around $69 (and hopefully coming to the UK later in the year) it should start to create some market share. Anyway please enjoy the video below.

There is some crazy awesome technology coming out of Las Vegas this week as the annual International Consumer Electronics Show takes over the Las Vegas Convention Center. And you though 3-D was the future. In a partnership between Samsung and Microsoft, a new awesome level of interactive living space is in the works. Microsoft calls it “Ilumiroom” and it works in concert with your Xbox Kinect.

Fridges are about to get much smarter. PSFK stopped by the Samsung booth at the recent Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas to see what the future of refrigeration might look like. Samsung is currently showcasing a fridge that comes with an embedded touch screen that connects to the Internet and lets users shop straight from their fridge. (This feature is currently concept-only in the United States.) Additional features include a washer/dryer manager that allows users to check out how much time is remaining on a load; it doubles as a TV by streaming from other TVs in the house; and a convenient grocery manager keeps track of how much food you have and the expiration dates of various products.
The best part of the fridge is that it connects to Samsung smartphones which means that users can remotely turn the washer/dyer on or off, check what is in their fridge while shopping at the grocery store, and write memos that act as a digital fridge magnet or post-it note.

There are two big battlefields currently playing out at present 1) Motion sensors which are linked to the extraordinary success of Microsoft Kinect device 2) Voice activation. Below is a really interesting video that highlights some of the technology making an appearance soon. C24 love these kind of concepts as we can see how they would be used within retail and other business sectors. Anyway enjoy…..

Although CES was a while ago, we still love the Smart TV arena. The video below really highlights how TV is going to develop over the next five years with the expectation that there will be three billion connected blu-ray and TV’s shipped by 2016. The magic motion device looks superb and really easy to use. And for those of us who have recently purchased a TV and believe we have missed out on the Smart TV you can upgrade your existing TV for £150.
How will this effect businesses in the UK, well that is the million $ question, but we belive that somewhere out there the next youtube, twitter or linkedin idea is ready to burst onto a TV near you soon.
