💻 World’s first glasses-free 3D laptop
The ASUS Spatial Vision is a part of ASUS’s new range of laptops and features realistic, lifelike imagery that appears to transcend through the screen.
No equipment or glasses are required to see the 3D images. Instead, eye-tracking camera system technology moves the images based on the user’s eye movements to perform real-time image rendering and weaving.

🏎 BMW’s first colour-changing car
The BMW i Vision Dee uses electronic ink to transition and collaborate between 32 different colours from green, blue, orange and purple to name a few.
The body of the vehicle is built up of microcapsules described as tiny spherical particles as thin as human hair. They contain colour pigments stimulated by an electrical field allowing you to choose different settings for your desired shade.
The BMW i Vision Dee can also create an avatar for the driver that is displayed on the side window to be seen from the outside. Dimmable windows are another interesting feature that can be used to ‘fade out reality’.

⌚ The NO-WATCH smartwatch
A Dutch technology company Nowatch shared its rather unique smartwatch invention, which as you may have guessed by the name, won’t tell you the time.

Nowatch was described as an ‘awareable’ device and its other functions include reading your temperature, tracking stress levels, and monitoring heart rate as well as movement and sleep patterns.

Samsung showed off the fascinating Flex Hybrid tablet that not only folds but can also transform in size with a small slideable section that moves inwards and outwards.
The display screen can grow from 13 to 17 inches which can come in handy for users gaming, travelling and watching movies - you can even close the tablet like a book while the side segment stays prolonged.
Samsung did reveal the project is just a theory for now but could be a glimpse into the future of what’s to come.
