Our CES 2021 day 2 summary: Razer’s futuristic N95 mask, smart lipstick and a flying car



This story is part of THESE, where our editors bring you the latest news and hottest gadgets from the all-virtual CES 2021.

THESE Being completely digital is certainly weird, but a lot of luxurious and crazy products shown on day 1 brought with it a sense of familiarity. Day 2 kept that momentum going, even though things here feel far more futuristic. Literally, a flying car was one of the great concepts of the day.

Although day 2 ended, the show is not over yet. In addition to a Microsoft keynote Wednesday and a steady stream of new product announcements from companies around the world, Thursday will bring Samsung Galaxy unpacked event, where is Galaxy S21

expected to be revealed.

Let’s be conceptual

Razer

Razer has made a tradition of displaying conceptual gadgets at CES, and it has become one of the highlights of the show every year. By 2021, Razer has two such concepts: Project Brooklyn and Project Hazel.

First up is Project Brooklyn, a wheelchair with a rolling, wrap-around display. It’s also a good screen: A 180 degree, transparent OLED. Apart from the groundbreaking technology, Project Brooklyn also has carbon fiber and leather seat seats with haptic vibration and RBG lighting. Of course.

The second is Project Hazel, a concept for COVID-19 live. It’s an N95 mask filled with technology: audio treatment pods that un-attenuate your voice, active ventilation and auto-sterilization, a companion case that also acts as a UV sterilizer. And LED RBG lighting.

Of course.

So yes, both are exciting. But Razer’s CES concepts typically do not result in actual products, so don’t expect that either. That said, the Acer has a similar (though less slim) chair in it seats. The British company Binatone also showed its own technically clamped mask at CES, an N95 mask with a bluetooth headset. It’s not as fancy as the Razers, but it’s genuine and costs $ 50 – far less than the Razers would cost.

GM brings us closer to The Jetsons

On Monday, Samsung unveiled a set of robots designed to help around the house, a baby step towards living like The Jetsons. General Motors helps us take a giant leap, shows its concept for a flying car. It is called eVTOL or (electric) Verticle TakeOff and Landing droid.

“We are preparing for a world where advances in electrical and autonomous technology enable personalized air travel,” said GM design chief Michael Simcoe. GM is now joining similar Archer and Aston Martin, companies that also work on flying vehicles.

Chip wars

AMD

Day 1 at CES featured a lot of TV competition between Samsung and LG, Korea’s two major electronics giants. Day 2 was a battlefield for processors, with Nvidia and AMD each having their own main keys.

Nvidia, the reigning champion in graphics cards, announded several new RTX GPUs. At the top end was the RTX 3080, for those who take their games really seriously (like e-sports seriously), starting at $ 1,999. But while it provides tremendous power for 4K gaming and intense video editing, the GPU at the lower end of the spectrum is just as remarkable. The RTX 3060 only costs $ 329, and Nvidia says it’s 10 times more powerful than the GTX 1060. In other words, you’ll be able to play most great new games on it, even though you may have to push the resolution down.

While AMD manufactures GPUs, the main key on Tuesday was more about portable CPUs. It has been heralded Ryzen 5000 chips come for laptops, with brands such as Lenovo, Asus and HP committing to Ryzen 5000-powered laptops later this year. AMD insists that this will mean thinner, lighter and more powerful laptops. These CPUs will compete with Intel’s 11th generation Tiger Lake H35 chips, which were announced Tuesday.

Oh, and just for fun, Samsung unveiled the Exynos 2100 chip who gets the international version of Samsung Galaxy S21. The phone gets one full unveiling Thursday, but hey, it’s Chip Day, so why not show some items early?

Laptops for mono screens are fit

Asus

Chips are cool, but what about the actual machines they are in?

Just as phone manufacturers are trying to get ahead of the curve with rolling, foldable screens, laptop manufacturers are trying to differentiate themselves with useful new designs. Thinner, lighter and more powerful is good, but in fact innovation in such a mature industry is great.

For Asus, this means doubling its powerful dual-screen Duo line. At CES it revealed To 15 FR SE, which has a 15.6-inch screen with a secondary 14.1-inch touch screen that lives above the keyboard, as you can see above. It’s a beast aimed at performance-obsessed gamers: It can be configured with a 4K 120Hz panel with options for either AMD or Nvidia graphics.

The company also dropped its new Strix Scar gaming laptop, which can be configured with a 360Hz monitor – the fastest on any laptop.

But while Asus is investing in brute force, Chinese brand Lenovo is going for efficiency. In addition to the primary display, its new Lenovo ThinkBook Plus Gen 2 has an E-ink display on the lid, so you can check notifications, your calendar, take notes and more without opening the machine. It can also be charged via a Lenovo charging mat, so it’s a cable less to worry about.

Smart lipstick, smarter perfume

Yves Saint Laurents person

L’Oreal

The internet-of-things industry is destined to grow by hundreds of millions of dollars every year. What this means in practice is that more everyday things are filled with computing smarts. A new example from CES? Lipstick.

Shown at last year’s CES and unveiled as a real product you can buy on Tuesday (coming in the spring, costing $ 299), Yves Saint Laurents person is a device that houses three liquid lipstick cartridges. Using an included brush, you can blend the colors together to get the exact color and shade you are looking for.

NINU

It’s a similar story with Ninu, a smart fragrance. Inside, there are three scents in three different vials. Ninu connects to your phone, and through an app you can mix scents together and customize it to your exact taste. This can of course go very wrong, so there is an AI assistant in the app that helps you not to smell like trash.

The future, right?
