RED HYDROGEN ONE world`s first holographic smartphone announced.









The RED Hydrogen One android holographic world`s first smartphone has been announced today in a event in Los Angeles.

You can actually have an holo chat with your friend and see you and he/she on an hologram when you chat.

If you want to know how to go to certain point in your car you will get an holo map.

The smartphone has 5.7 inch display, USB-C plug, stereo speakers, and a headphone jack,Qualcom m Snapdragon 835, 4000 mAh battery.

It has a new screen technology the company is calling “4-view.” It will allow users to switch the 2560 x 1440 screen from a standard 2D to 3D to a “holographic” view.

Technology.

There is a special layer underneath the LCD display which, when enabled, is able to direct light in multiple directions instead of the standard two that happen with lenticular displays. RED is also doing more than just combining two images to make standard 3D —it’s trying to use an algorithm to blend multiple angles from those two lenses to create the effect.

AUDIO.

The company has created a virtual surround sound effect through its algorithms , called A3D sound. Fans at the event described it as being just as good as Dolby 5.1 surround. 

It comes in either aluminum (pre-order price: $1,195) or titanium (pre-order price: $1,595) and Verizon and AT&T will support it. The Red Hydrogen will be available in August.

Press Release:

Meet Surface Hub 2.

By Panos Panay / Chief Product Officer

A new culture of work is emerging. One where unlocking the power of the team has never been more important. I see it with our team daily. People coming together, creating together. Making products stronger through collaboration, whether they’re in the same room or separated by thousands of miles.

Today’s most effective businesses have a team-based, collaborative culture and place an emphasis on enabling creativity and productivity. In fact, companies that promote collaborative working are five times as likely to be high-performing.

It’s not just that how we work is changing, it’s that where we work is changing too. The environment around us is shifting – towards open offices, huddle rooms, and team work spaces – in fact, in three years, half the global workforce will be mobile. It’s an exciting time to be in the devices business, because the creation of new form factors and software experiences will not only lead us to work in new ways, but also in new spaces designed for collaboration.

There is a need for a device built for teams and designed for these new environments. To help people collaborate whether they are in the office, at home, or travelling the world. To move beyond just passing along information, to a world where they are collaborating real-time, in an efficient, and intuitive way.

Today, I’m excited to introduce that device, the next generation – Surface Hub 2.

Unlock the power of the team.

Surface Hub 2 was designed from the ground up to be used by teams – to get people out of their seats, to connect and ideate, regardless of location. The new Surface Hub 2 is sleeker, more agile and more affordable to fit any workspace or work style. The gorgeous 4K+ 50.5” multi-touch display creates an inviting canvas to co-create, harnessing the power of Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Whiteboard, Office 365, Windows 10 and the intelligent cloud. The 4K cameras that rotate with the device, integrated speakers and far field mic arrays allow everyone in the meeting to feel as if they are right in the room with the rest of the group, while our standard Surface 3×2 aspect ratio means everyone has more usable space to create and collaborate.

Perfect for any space.

Surface Hub 2 scales and adapts to your space through tiling up to 4 screens together in portrait or landscape view.  Dynamic rotation allows you to use the best orientation for your content to help people work in the way that best suits them and the people they are collaborating with. It is also significantly easier to move around your workspaces than its predecessor. We’ve teamed up with workplace expert Steelcase to create a system of rolling stands and easy-to-use mounts to help Surface Hub 2 customers be truly mobile, gain a new perspective and capture their ideas wherever they do their best work.


The magic of tiling.

Tiling is one of my favorite features on Surface Hub 2. Seeing four of the beautiful Surface Hub 2s lined up together has undeniable visual effect and will have a profound impact on what groups can accomplish together, allowing users to display multiple pieces of content side-by-side. Imagine how much your team could get done being able to work simultaneously across Microsoft Whiteboard, PowerBI, PowerPoint, and a full view video call.

Move beyond meetings, to real-time teamwork.

We’re passionate about creating experiences that allow the technology to fade into the background, so people and teams can be as productive and creative as possible. The original Surface Hub advanced this mission, making it possible to join a meeting or open a whiteboard with one touch. Now Surface Hub 2 takes it even further with multi-user sign in.

This feature is a truly magical experience. Using multi-user sign in, multiple people can authenticate in the same Surface Hub 2 workspace, allowing them to simultaneously access their documents and ideas, merging them with the ideas of their teammates – and making collaboration as natural as meeting at a whiteboard.


The future of collaboration is coming.

We started on the journey of empowering teams with the original Surface Hub and the value it provides has resonated with businesses worldwide. We’ve sold to more than 5000 customers across 25 markets. Over half of Fortune 100 companies have purchased Surface Hubs to improve team’s efficiency and how they collaborate – breaking down barriers and creating real business value. We believe our customers will love Surface Hub 2 even more.

In 2018 we will begin to test Surface Hub 2 with select commercial customers. It will be available for purchase in 2019. For additional information on Surface Hub 2 please visit: microsoft.com/en-us/surface/business/surface-hub-2

It`s Official: LG launches the Google Assistant on 2018 enabled AI TVs. Combines with LG’s award-winning webOS based ThinQ AI








It`s Official: LG launches the Google Assistant on 2018 AI TVs. Combines with LG’s award-winning webOS based ThinQ AI.

Press Release:

LG LAUNCHES THE GOOGLE ASSISTANT ON 2018 AI-ENABLED TVS

Activation of the Google Assistant Drives LG’s Critically-Acclaimed 4K UHD TVs.

Into the Connected Home Ecosystem with Cutting-Edge AI Services 

SEOUL, May 8, 2018 — First announced at CES 2018, the Google Assistant is now available on LG’s 2018 AI TV line-up. This includes both LG OLED TVs and LG SUPER UHD TVs with ThinQ AI, which will deliver cutting-edge AI features operated directly through the TV’s remote control with no additional hardware required. The collaboration between Google and LG will add more convenience in consumers’ lives, and the synergistic effects from this technology partnership positively impacting LG’s award-winning TVs.

The Google Assistant combines with LG’s award-winning webOS based ThinQ AI to bring new levels of convenience and control to the consumer. This enables 2018 LG TVs to deliver an intuitive AI experience that uses natural language commands to control TV functions, seamlessly discover and play content, and control TV settings. With the Google Assistant, you can ask it to help manage daily tasks, access information, control compatible smart home devices including lighting, appliances and much more.

Beginning this year, LG and Google began collaborating to develop a wide range of features and are working on expanding consumer accessibility in multiple languages. By adding the Google Assistant to the webOS platform of LG’s 2018 AI TVs, the advanced machine learning and natural language processing technologies that Google is known for will simplify life for consumers worldwide. LG’s implementation reflects the importance the company places on creating and providing a more complete, accessible and diverse range of AI services.

LG’s 2018 AI TVs can perform hundreds of voice commands utilizing the company’s own open smart platform as well as the built in Google Assistant. With LG’s proprietary ThinQ AI users can immediately connect to external gaming consoles and soundbars (“Connect to soundbar”), they can switch picture mode (“Change to Cinema Mode”) or turn the TV off at set times.

Additionally, searching for content is even simpler and more convenient with LG TVs. LG AI-enabled TVs can instantly retrieve information or switch to a channel that offers the content requested by the viewer. “Switch to Discovery channel” instantly connects one to information about future travel destinations. Users can learn more about their desired films simply by saying a character’s or actor’s name, they can tell the TV to “Search for the soundtrack of this movie” or “Turn off the TV when this program is over” without needing to schedule a time.

With the Google Assistant built in, LG’s AI TVs offer users a streamlined experience that allows them to manage different tasks, find answers, or control smart home devices. Simply press and hold the mic button and ask for information such as the weather forecast (“What’s the weather this weekend?”), nearby local businesses, or check the score of the big game without disturbing the viewing experience. Users can relive their favorite moments by displaying memories from Google Photos. Services such as food delivery and transportation will also be easier with the addition of third-party Actions available in the near future.

With help from the Google Assistant, LG’s AI TVs can serve as the center of your smart home, offering access to devices such as robotic vacuum cleaners, thermostats, air purifiers, smart lighting devices and many more. The Google Assistant works with more than 5,000 smart devices across hundreds of popular brands making it easier to control smart speakers and other devices connected via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.

LG OLED TVs and LG SUPER UHD TVs with ThinQ AI and the Google Assistant will be available in the United States starting in May with key markets in Europe and Asia to follow.

“With the Google Assistant now available natively in 2018 LG AI TVs, I believe we’re going to see a whole new level of AI adoption in the home,” said Brian Kwon, president of LG’s Home Entertainment Company. “LG’s unique partnership with Google allows us to be the first TV brand to offer the Google Assistant on our own OS which is a huge benefit for customers who are fans of webOS. With great partners like Google, we expect there to be many more exciting AI news to come from LG.”

LG’s 2018 AI TVs also work with existing Google Assistant devices such as Google Home and other smart speakers with the Assistant built in, allowing users to send voice commands directly from a separate Assistant device to their LG TV. TV owners can speak to other Assistant devices to control TV functions such as volume, play, pause, start, stop, fast forward, channel selection, content search, among many others. LG’s 2018 AI-enabled TVs will work with other Google Assistant devices in the U.S., U.K., Canada and Australia with further expansion to be announced later this year.

LG OLED TV with AI (Artificial Intelligence) ThinQ® has the Google Assistant built in, so your TV can be the center of your smart home. Ask your Assistant to help manage daily tasks like scheduling calendar events or adding items to your shopping list. See answers to things you want to know, including the weather forecast or game scores. Or, control your smart home devices such as change light settings, check room temperature and more.

It seems Samsung is making good progress with the foldable smartphone that was originaly code named as PROJECT VALLEY (also known as Galaxy X) 3 years ago, and has changed the code  name of it to Project WINNER.

Industry watchers think Samsung is moving beyond the development stage and is seriously going to release the foldable smartphone.

Samsung has informed to its suppliers to start supplying components for the mobile from November 2018. If that is correct the company is planning to unveil the smartphone at MWC 2019 (since there are rumors about the Galaxy S10 to be launched at CES 2019 in January) and make available  around 500.000 units to test the market first and confirm demand in order to increase production.

The report is saying that the foldable smartphone will have three  3.5 OLED screens,  two of them will be inside and one on the outside

For me that phone is the trifold smartphone latest patent granted to Samsung of which we posted yesterday as Samsung challenge competitors with a thrifold Smartphone patent granted.  You can see  the picture posted below:
