The End of Bezels As We Know It

The product fades bezels and creates a better viewing experience. Thin lenses are placed along the seams where screens meet; they contain optical micro-structures that refract light, bending it inward to hide the bezels underneath.

The lenses are made from a transparent thermoplastic that’s much more durable than glass. This material lets 90% of the light from the monitors shine through, making a more fluid multi-monitor experience.

In an effort to make the product ASUS exclusive, they have made custom clips and allow no extension for the small variation between monitor heights. Despite their best efforts, I expect we will see many knock offs of this brilliant concept.

Sonos’ first foray into voice control speakers has been revealed. The speaker is a slim rounded cube with impressive sound, a plethora of streaming services, and most importantly a voice assistant.

 

The Sonos One will support Alexa and Google Assistant sometime in the early next year. The device will also pair with additional Sonos One speakers to allow for Stereo sound.

As the company suggested earlier this year, the One is the first Sonos speaker to natively support voice assistants. Since Sonos is continually updating with new features, services and skills, your music and voice options will both keep getting better over time.

The company says they kept privacy in mind stating, “An illuminated LED indicator light ensures you always know when your speaker’s microphone is active. Or turned off. Sonos One is designed with extra security — the hard-wire LED connection ensures no one is listening when you want privacy.”

Google unveiled a new device today called Clips, it’s a smart camera capable of recognizing faces and knowing when footage is worth keeping. It clips to anything and is being praised as the car dashboard cam for the home. Google hopes to help customers capture moments that would otherwise go unseen.

Google describes the camera as, “smart enough to recognize great expressions, lighting and framing. So the camera captures beautiful, spontaneous images. And it gets smarter over time.”

 

The Clips is described as being able to learn; meaning Clips will learn the faces you interact with on a regular basis. As long as your phone has Wi-Fi Direct or Bluetooth, you can use it to sort through Clips’ pictures and decide what to keep.

Google Clips has a wide, 130-degree field of view and has 16GB of internal storage. It will last for three hours on a single charge.
