Sony’s ‘Power of the Wow’ annual conference saw the home entertainment giant showcase a range of gear which just might make it to store shelves in India
Cynical about new tech? Jaded by phones that all look the same? Don't be such a grouch 'cos we have some good news. Well, we just got a look at some new Sony kit that might make its way to India, and it'll really gladden your heart to know it's not your usual, run-of-the-mill tech... Like what you see? Then go make a few placards and join us in telling Sony they'd better launch this stuff right away!
Most smartwatches tend to be as stylish as a discount raincoat made of shiny plastic. Which is to say, not much. And Sony seems to agree, 'cos they've taken a whole new approach to the FES Watch - it's not smart, you won't be yelling into it to call an Uber, and it won't read out your texts, but with an e-ink face and strap, it looks suitably stylish.
Call us hipsters, but we love this 'futuristic minimalism'!
LSPX-P1 ultra-short throw portable projector
Stuck at home on a rainy day? Fire up this ultra-short throw projector and let it create a window to a sunny day right on your bedroom wall. Even better, it's ultra-portable so you can easily take it along on vacations - stream movies over Bluetooth to the projector and turn any tabletop or wall into your personal cinema.
Yup, it might seem like a toy, but we sure hope we find this in our stockings come Christmas!
LED bulb speaker
This is for people whose bedrooms are packed to the brim with knick-knacks and vacation mementoes - leaving no space for even a small set of speakers. You see, Sony has managed to develop a LED bulb that leaves a minimal shadow, and then they've shoehorned a Bluetooth speaker right in the centre.
You know where we're going with this - swap out the bulbs in your bedside lamps ASAP!
