The technology of the future you could soon be using
The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas has officially come to a close, but we thought we'd sign off by giving you a look at what you could be seeing next year at the 'Superbowl of tech'.
C-Lab Space is a start-up incubator program run by Samsung. In the program, Samsung staff are given the opportunity to develop ideas, pitch them, and then look to create products of the future.
Once given the go-ahead, those staff members are then given time off their regular duties to develop those ideas.
While TVs, soundbars, mobile phones and home appliances may be Samsung's bread and butter, today Samsung lifted the curtain on eight of the best C-Lab initiatives, starting with a phone case that can turn any content into 3D.
A small team have developed 'Mopic,' a clear phone case that works with an app that allows you to watch 3D content, play 3D games and take 3D photos.
When not in use, the case works as a regular, protective phone case - just flip the case to cover the front for 3D.
And despite being created by the team at Samsung, there's also a version for iPhone.
In the next booth, a perfume blender is on show. Like the smell of a fragrance? Simply use the app to take a photo of the bottle and the app will reveal the ingredients.
Snap as many bottles as you like and the app will collect and store that information.
The app will recommend personalised fragrances for you based on your taste, and the perfume blender will create the fragrance just for you.
There's also Snail Sound, an app that replaces the traditional - and expensive - hearing aid device. All you need is a pair of earphones of any brand.
Take a quick hearing test on the app to start, then the app will work to collect the sound around you and deliver it to the app, the app analyses the sound and delivers it at the appropriate level for you.
Finally, a new way to advertise. A small group of Samsung staff have developed a product that uses artificial intelligence to allow advertises to promote a product or a logo live on TV or online. The talent simply has to wear this funky pattern.
Each of these ideas are currently in their final stages of development - at least until next year.
