Tech It Out: Chinese tech make splashes at first-ever virtual CES
By Dong Yi, Yang Xiao, Yang Zhao
For the first time in its over five-decade history, the Consumer Electronics Show or CES, is held virtually this year due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Although leading Chinese tech companies like Huawei and DJI did not make the invite list, plenty of other Chinese tech firms are still making heads turn at CES 2021.
Alongside the annual refresh of its laptop lineups, Lenovo has introduced a new AR headset targeting enterprise users. This lightweight and portable device can project up to 5 screens onto its transparent displays, boosting productivity without taking up massive physical space.
Display and TV manufacturers are fighting for more attention this year.
Chinese TV maker TCL has unveiled the innovative OD Zero technology, which minimizes the distance between a LED's backlight and its LCD panel to zero, allowing vivid colors and images to pop out right in front of the viewers.
Both TCL and LG have teased a rollable display smartphone, with LG officially announces its partnership with China's display technology giant BOE to turn the concept into a reality.
Electric vehicles and autonomous driving stole the show this year. DeepRoute AI, a Shenzhen-based self-driving technology startup, brought to the stage an upgrade to the company's 2020 CES-award-winning autonomous driving system. The new machine learning platform focuses on energy efficiency, affordability, and compatibility.
