The Year Began With A Bang Of Technological Influx

This year, the Samsung Galaxy S24 series to the Oneplus 12 series and more phones with numerics attached to them bring some amazing hardware and software solutions to the smartphone mix

The tech mecca Consumer Electronic Show was an experience with thousands of innovative ideas across the show floor. We covered some fantastic content, including some mind-boggling new concepts and thousands of steps alongside Gary Shapiro, CEO of the Consumer Technology Association, along with Kaushal Neverkar, President of Reliance Digital. The interview is worth piling a few brain cells. A surprisingly good amount of launches at the start of the year has my team busy switching platforms and smartphones. This year, the Samsung Galaxy S24 series to the Oneplus 12 series and more phones with numerics attached to them bring some amazing hardware and software solutions to the smartphone mix. Do you know how big Alphabet is? It is much larger than Google’s parent company. We look at some promises that failed with startups and also some promising aspects in consumer technology of the year ahead.

I also had the chance to visit Sphere in Las Vegas, which is a marvel in itself. Watching those screens everywhere on that high resolution will just mesmerise you. The 18,600-seat auditorium is a phenomenon in itself for its immersive video and audio capabilities, which include a 16K resolution wraparound interior LED screen, speakers with beamforming and wave field synthesis technologies, and 4D physical effects. The venue’s exterior also features 580,000 sq ft (54,000 m2) of LED displays. And now hold your breath; the arena costs US$2.3 billion, making it by far the most expensive entertainment venue built in Las Vegas or globally. Some moments are better experienced in person than on paper. What does look good in print is Arjun Kapoor posing in his natural element, teaming up as one with the Predator series from Acer. The outcome is almost lethal when style and gaming predators assemble as one. Drool and read at your risk.

The automotive industry has also marked 2024 as the year of introducing a new set of wheels with the fourth avatar of the Creta, one of the bestsellers in Indian markets, to Rolls Royce introducing Spectre in India, an electric luxury coupe, to McLaren 750S bringing madness of 750PS in a mid-engine rear-wheel-drive car. Physics limits us to pages else; we would be releasing books of some fantastic technology and automotive content each month, but physics and reality of things get interesting with Arjun Kapoor, an interesting conversation and insight into his world. This month is packed to the gills with technology, lifestyle and automotive content. My team and I are excited to witness the year ahead, while this is simply the start
