A go searching Haier’s CES 2013 sales space: HaiPads, loads of panels and a wi-fi blender
Haier had a reasonably formidable sales space right here at CES, so naturally, we needed to swing by and forged our eyeballs over something and every thing there. A wall of TVs greeted us, which turned out to be the corporate’s 2013 Roku-prepared HDTVs and Android-packing sensible fashions. Screens have been in all places, however there was additionally a desk with some finger-pleasant gear like 9.7-, 7- and 5.three-inch HaiPads, in addition to a Home windows eight laptop computer, touchscreen all-in-one and tab / laptop computer slider. The slider appeared fairly good, however all of the aforementioned hardware was arrange in Chinese language, so we misplaced curiosity fairly shortly. A central corridor sales space would not be the identical and not using a 4K TV, however to not fear, Haier had a pair on show — sadly, glare from all the opposite screens dotted round sort of dampened their influence.
What we have been most considering was all of the prototype applied sciences on present, however all of the Haier reps have been from the US gross sales division, so not a soul might speak concerning the demonstrations. The attention-managed TV we noticed at IFA final yr was getting various consideration, whereas the thoughts-managed set we have additionally seen earlier than was virtually definitely enjoying a looping video to offer the phantasm one thing was occurring. There have been additionally a number of gesture-managed fashions, however one wasn’t working and the opposite was internet hosting a really primary Kinect-sort recreation. A ping-pong recreation performed with a “Sensory Distant” was additionally up on one TV, however seemed unresponsive and subsequently, unfun. A multi-view demo utilizing twin 3D specs did what it was purported to, and a glasses-free 3D TV prototype confirmed good depth so long as you have been 12+ ft away (the digital camera cannot actually replicate the impact, however there is a fast video of it under anyway).
The sales space additionally had a family part which we thought was protected to disregard, till a “wi-fi blender” caught the attention. “It is only a blender with a battery in it, certainly?” this editor requested. “No, there’s an inductive coil constructed into to the underside of the counter,” was the reply. Thus was our Haier expertise at CES, and to revisit it by way of our eyes lens, take a look at the gallery under.
