3M showed of their massive 80" touch surface

This was fun...A chat with a 3M rep and some playtime of a multitouch 80 inch screen.... Good fun! They said it can be adapted to any size screen available and the touch count is only limited by the customer.... You want 20 point touch? 100 point? The sky's the limit.

LG/Marvell showed off Miracast at Unveiled

Finally had some hands on time wit Miracast... A wireless video delivery system. LG had a tv powered by the same Marvell chip in the current Google TV lineup and an unmarked Android tablet... From what I was told by the rep, it leverages the 5Ghz band for WiFi N.. So possibly no Nexus 7 love? Anyways... In a room saturated by an insane amount of WiFi traffic, the demo ran pretty well, well just some minor video distortion similar to Youtube when your bandwidth drops. With a delay of about less than a second, it seems like a viable way to connect to your TV... Sent from my Windows Phone

Superman gets beat up by BatMan?

Well, last night Nvidia announced its follow up to the Tegra 3 SOC (Kal-El) with the 72 core gpu Tegra 4 SOC (Wayne). So far NVIDIA's new Shield portable gaming unit and Vizio's new 10 inch tablet are confirmed to be using it... MadFinger's Dead Trigger 2 was shown running off the Tegra 4 and shows almost current gen console quality... Maybe early Xbox 369 and PS3 quality... Time to sell the Nexus 7?

CES Goodies

Ok, more like goody... Upon entry to CES Unveiled, everyone was given a Bcoda JAK, a USB device that allows you to stream from your Android or IOS device to anything that accepts a USB flash drive. So, for example, I can plug it into my Tv and select audio or video files from my Nexus 7. The TV sees it as a flash drive and will stream from my tablet. The best part is that it works great! Now I wish I didn't get a pink one and they made a Windows phone version. Read more here Sent from my Windows Phone
