CES 2015 - Las Vegas, NV (Part 4)

I went to the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, NV this year! There was so much cool electronic gadgets to see. I went on the last two days of the convention (Thursday and Friday). I obviously didn't get through all of the exhibits. I got so carried away looking and playing with the cool electronics, that I forgot to vlog and take photos for a lot of the stuff at the convention. Even with that, I still have a pretty good collection of shots to show you that I took at the convention. I hope you enjoy. The photos will be split into four blog posts. If you haven't watched my vlog yet, you can do so here. In the vlog, you can see some of the products in the photos here in action. Obviously, I can't animate a photo! :)

Here is part 4 of the photos from the event. Coming up in this blog post: robotics, toys, and much more!

Message From the Photographer: Hi guys, I have some bad news. My Nexus 5's radio just broke. As you know I am quite the computer geek too, and I gave it my all trying to fix the device (resetting things to make sure it isn't a software glitch). Anyways, I have failed, and more than likely the physical cellphone radio broke (so it won't connect to my carrier at all). My phone is very important in my photography. I do sometimes use the camera on the phone for some of my photos, use it to navigate to my photo shoot destination, and many times I will need to tether my DSLR to my phone for certain types of photos. I am not asking for donations, but I am asking for some help to build up some funding on a new smartphone. I'm a poor college student. It might seem like I have all the money in the world, but most of my photography equipment is from my parents. I would really like to be able to replace this phone with my own money.

Do you shop on Amazon? Please please please bookmark my link and use it when ever you make a purchase. You only have to use within the past 24 hours before making a purchase for it to work. I participate in the Amazon Associates Program, so Amazon will pay me a small commission for every sale I generate through my link. This won't cost you anything extra and the funds go into funding my photography, my videos, and in this case, helping me fund for replacement equipment. Also, you can help me by disabling any Adblockers you have on my website. I have Amazon ads on my blog posts, and those also help with with funding. Thank you guys for reading and as always you can share my photos and blog posts out to your friends and family members as a way to support me. Thanks for reading, I really appreciate it.

This is Ollie by Sphero. This is this rugged robotic toy that you can control with a tablet or phone and it can roll around on the ground and do tricks. I took a photo of it because I saw video of it on Youtube before and it looked really cool. 

More robotic pet creations. These are dinosaurs and they do move around. 

This is the New Matter MOD-t 3D Printer. 

Prototype quadcopter model printed using a 3D printer. 

A photo of the Prusa i3 3D printer working. 

This is called Eve and is made by a company called Elgato. The company is making home sensors to detect open windows, weather conditions, etc...

A photo of a Lamborghini. 

A black and white process of the photo above. 

Here is a live demo from Mash.Me animation technology. They have a person demoing the technology on the right, with mirrored movements on the on-screen animation on the left. 

An app development company IceBreakerQ which according to their online website is an app to help you find people with similar interests. I thought it was a nice costume, so I took a photo. 

This is a product called Ring made by Logbar. It is a small electronic ring with a motion sensor. It connects to your phone, so you can be in control of a variety of things (lights at home, TVs, curtains, etc...) with a wave of your finger. 

A few photos of Toshiba's communication Android. The humanoid robot has lots of pneumatics and motors inside to mimic human movements and emotions very closely. 

This humanoid robot is still in pretty early stages of development. The robot shown here does not interact with the public, does not have artificial intelligence, and only performs a pre-programmed speech. 

These are all the photos for today. Please don't forget to share with your friends and family members! Also, if you want to get notifications when I post up more photos, "Like" us on Facebook or follow me on Twitter and Google+. These links can also be found on the top of the right sidebar.
