The Consumer Electronics Show, or CES, is one of the largest showcases of new technology in the world.

Hosted by the Consumer Electronics Association in Las Vegas, CES 2013 will open to press and exhibitors from every facet of the electronics industry, and TechRadar is here to deliver the latest news from the show.

We've descended upon the gambling capital of the world for four days to bask in the glow of the latest computers, televisions, cameras, phones and more.

The curtain lifts...

As day one of the show began, there were tons of announcements from LG, HP, and Haier to name a few.

In fact, LG confirmed during a press conference on Jan 7 that it will release a range of "tier one" handsets to market in 2013.

Haier's 'TV of the future'

CES always brings out the cool, innovative toys, and Haier's "TV of the future" is no exception.

Haier announced a TV that uses your eyes as the remote. Yes, that's right. Your eyes.

Using technology developed by NeuroSky, you can use your eyes (well, actually your brain) to change the channel.

Voice controls are also offered, but who wants to waste time with that when you can let your eyes do the talking?

LG goes hectic with Hecto projection system

LG and Samsung are in a bit of a battle when it comes to pre-CES announcements as the former announced it will bring out a Hecto 100-inch Laser TV complete with projection unit at the Vegas show.

We're talking 1080p full HD images projected from a mere 22in away. We're talking the ultimate movie watching experience, including 3 HDMI ports, Smart TV and Digital TV functionality and a projection unit with bulbs that can last up to 25,000 hours before replacement.

Hopefully we'll get word on pricing and availability on the Hecto unit come show time, but it'll be fun to watch a flick or two nonetheless.

Very interested in this from nvidia:

Nvidia unleashes record-setting Tegra 4 processor

CES 2013 Ultra HD friendly, battery loving, mega-fast processing

******************************************EXCERPT*************************************

Roll up, roll up - the next generation of mobile processors is here with the Nvidia Tegra 4 blowing its predecessors out of the graphics processing, power-effiency water.

Rocking a frankly mind-boggling 72 custom GPU cores (that's six times the horse power of the Tegra 3), Nvidia is boasting of record setting performance and battery life from the Tegra 4.

It reckons you can up web browsing speeds by 2.6 times, enjoy better app performance and watch up to 15 hours of HD video playback on phones with the new processor.

Power magnet

The Tegra 4 manages this by running a low-power setting during standard use, and PRISM 2 Display tech which reduces backlighting while busting out that high-def imagery (it can even support 4K Ultra High Def graphics).

It puts the quad-core Cortex-A15 to good use, allowing for LTE connectivity (optional chipset for global 4G), HDR photography as standard and superior visuals across the mobile board.

Have my tickets sitting on my desk since Ocotber, I get them every year though the last couple of years I haven’t bothered to go.

What I really miss are the COMDEX shows.

A few years ago, I think it was Toshiba, had a 104" LCD, IIRC it was around 100k to buy.

It’s 100 inch projection, that’s a diagonal dimension. That fits nicely on an average wall. I have a 100 inch screen on my living room wall for my HD projector. Everyone loves it, especially for sports. My projector and screen cost less than $1000 but I’m sure this new unit will be much more.

Yeah, you really need that in a phone. ;') And regarding huge TVs, the Xmas season showed me huge TVs which were reasonably priced, and drive-in theater (for the garage) sizes that were not hideously priced (though out of my price range).

Using technology developed by NeuroSky, you can use your eyes (well, actually your brain) to change the channel.

I remember seeing something similar where a person looks at a letter (on a spreadout like a typewriter/computer keyboard) with his eyes and when he/she blinks, the "key" is "pressed" as the computer read the eyes/brain. It was meant for quadrapelegics to use. IIRC, it was around 1979 or so and it was driven by an Apple ][ computer.
