CES 2020: 5 Interesting tech inventions from this year’s grand show of innovations

The Consumers Electronics Show (CES) is an event that many look forward to every year. CES is where major brands and start-ups reveal their upcoming products as well as unique concepts. Every year, business leaders and pioneering thinkers attend the event to check out innovators and breakthrough technologies. There were many interesting unveilings and special attendees this time—from Apple’s first appearance in 28 years to Lora DiCarlo’s return with new sex tech gadgets after 2019 ban. We have compiled a list of five intriguing creations from the 2020 CES below.

1. Sony Z8H 8K LED

Some new televisions from Sony were shown at this year’s showcase and the Z8H 8K LED was one of them. What’s immediately noticeable is the proprietary technologies that can be found in the latest television products; these features were only available in the Master Series models. Sony aims to offer a viewing experience that’s realistic through the utilisation of their Picture Processor X1 Ultimate. In addition to that, Triluminos Display helps to provide more shades of red, green, and blue than its predecessors with the reproduction of subtle nuances of colour, light, and gradation. Another exciting feature is Ambient Optimisation—sound and picture quality are optimised in any environment whereas other important characteristics include the Full Array LED so customers get more realistic peaks of brightness and more accurate shadow details. Dolby Vision/Atmos support, easy accessibility with Android 9 Pie, as well as new Frame Tweeter (slim design with Sound-from-Picture Reality) are other note-worthy components.
