According to many consumers, the most interesting CES 2017 reveal came from Nvidia, which updated its Android-powered Shield TV box with a number of new features.

Nvidia has got a case of the Apples and calls the refreshed box simply ‘the Shield’ – with 4K HDR capabilities.

The device can stream content from YouTube and built-in Netflix in 4K as well as Google Play Movies, Amazon Video, and games streaming to its 4K arsenal. Just as intriguingly, the new Shield also comes with Google Assistant built in, complete with the usual array of voice-based music control and video playback functionality, with things like Samsung Smart Things.

There’s even an accompanying peripheral – Nvidia Spot. Similar to Amazon’s Echo Dot, you plug it in anywhere in your home and it picks up your voice commands.

 

3. SONY OLED TV A1E

Sony finally joined the OLED party at CES 2017, announcing its first ‘proper’ OLED TV, the A1E.

Quite apart from being an OLED TV, it has a ‘unique’ way of producing sound. Instead of speakers or a sound bar, which is the common way many slim TVs give you sound, the AE1 literally vibrates the TV panel to produce sound. In other words, the sound comes straight from the screen. And that’s just a mind blowing idea!

After spending some quality time with the new set, which comes in 55”, 65”, and 77” models, Home Technology Editor Ced Yuen deemed it “one of the most exciting TVs of 2017.”

It’ll come with the latest Intel Kaby Lake architecture (Core i5 or Core i7) and offer two USB-C ports. Dell is claiming around 15 hours of battery life on the FHD model, and that will obviously drop significantly on the QHD display version.

Dell launched an assault on Microsoft’s Surface Studio at CES 2017, unveiling its touch-screen Canvas work surface.

You can use a stylus or your fingers to interact with your work and control the various software features which sit on top of the hardware.

While it’s still early days for the Canvas, it is an “exceptionally clever” concept. Computing Editor Michael Passingham reckons it will “prove to be a popular alternative to the Surface Studio.”
