Panasonic Unveils 20-inch 4K Tablet at CES

Panasonic Tablet

The major reveals at CES 2013 just keep on coming. This time around, the spotlight is on Panasonic and on their new 20-inch 4K tablet. As expected, the display looks impressive, and the specs reveal why. The LCD has a pixel density of 230 ppi and an aspect ratio of 15:10. You could press your nose up to to the tablet and not spot the individual pixels on the display.

Twenty inches is a bit huge for a tablet, which is probably why some people consider it more like an entire PC in one neat package. Despite that, Panasonic is still marketing their newest baby as a tablet. Going back to the specs, the tablet is powered by Intel Core i5-3427U central processing units with a clock speed of 1.8 GHz. It will also come with a microSDXC memory card slot, a USB 2.0 port, and a 720p front-facing camera. The 4K tablet lets users stay connected as well via WiFi and Bluetooth.

No release dates or pricing information have been released yet, although you can expect them to come soon.

They Finally Did It: Kingston to Release 1TB USB 3.0 Flash Drives This Year

Terabyte Drive

If you’ve ever wished for a 1-terabyte flash drive, then your wish is Kingston’s command. The company is known for the solid line of USB drives that they’ve released throughout the years, but now they’re cementing their status as the King of USBs by unveiling their new flash drives called the DataTraveler HyperX Predator with 512GB and 1TB capacities. That’s a whole lot of memory for such a teeny, tiny drive that can easily fit into your pocket.

Aside from its massive capacity, Kingston’s 3.0 USB flash drive is also built for speed: it can read data at 240MB/s, while its write speeds are at 160MB/s. The company hasn’t announced pricing information yet, although they’re currently selling the 512GB version for $1,750. Estimates place the price somewhere around the $3,000 range, but hopefully we’re wrong because even while we love the goods, that’s still one hefty price tag.

Liquipel’s Liquipod Makes Any Device Waterproof While You Wait

Liquipel

Lots of people have the habit of dropping their gadgets into puddles of mud or water. It doesn’t matter if it happened accidentally or out of sheer carelessness.

Currently on display at CES 2013, the Liquipod is basically a machine that will coat your phone or tablet with Liquipel’s nanocoat so you can waterproof your device anytime, anywhere.

Tactus Touchscreen Tablet Comes With a Virtual Keyboard You Can Physically Feel

Tactus Touchscreen

Tactus is all about the physical, but I don’t really mean that in the physical sense. You see, with the popularity of touchscreen devices, some people have been clamoring for a keyboard that still retains the feel of the earlier physical keyboards that these mobile devices came with. You’d think having a virtual keyboard feel like a physical keyboard is a near impossible thing, but apparently it’s not because Tactus has managed to do just that.

You might remember the display that they introduced over a year ago, which created physical buttons on the surface at will or on command. It looked good, even at that time while they were still working on its development. Now Tactus has unveiled a 7-inch tablet that makes use of the technology at CES 2013 in Las Vegas, showing off just how well their display works on actual devices.

HAPIfork is the Fork for Dieters and for the Weight Conscious

HAPIFork

CES 2013 is well underway and it’s only a matter of time before the interwebs is flooded with news about quirky devices and gadgets that were unveiling at the annual tech show. The first we’re going to present here is the HAPIfork, which is the smart fork that’s aiming to make a lot of dieters and weight watchers happy.

The HAPIfork has a sensor that detects how fast the user is eating and how often the fork is being used to shove food down the his or her throat. When the fork detects that the user is eating way too fast or way too much, it’ll vibrate gently to remind him or her to slow down. The fork will then send data about the user’s eating habits to a smartphone or computer so that they can be evaluated. It will also be used to draw up a plan that will hopefully encourage the user to stop eating like a glutton.

HAPIfork will launch on Kickstarter sometime in March 2013.
