    The Hyundai walking car is probably the only thing I actually found interesting, although I worry it is just something that will pass without ever being applied in the real world.

    Phanteks Enthoo LUXE 2 at $180 looks a good deal.

    I had big hope for Ryzen 3 to be out in a few months, but have to wait a little longer.

    Re: QOTW: What's caught your eye at CES 2019?

    What's caught my eye? Nothing, mainly because I haven't been looking.

    These days, my approach to tech purchases is that when I need something, I'll look around at what's available. Right now, thinking about a new printer (with scanner, copier function, auto-duplex scan and auto-duplex print, high-speed and minimal running costs).

    So, when I need something, I do a bit of research, then buy what looks to be best, In the above case, was looking for a laser but now thinking HP Pagewide Pro 477DW inkjet.

    Tech shows, to be honest, bore me rigid. I've attended to many, including Comdex and CES, in Vegas, to have any real interest in up-coming tech, and certainly not enough to read about it, because if I want something, I have no interest in what might be available, probably at a oremium price, in several months. I'm rather more "right here, right now" than that.

    Re: QOTW: What's caught your eye at CES 2019?

    I’ve never been an early adopter of tech, (fold rush in etc etc) so while I am curious about new tech, it doesn’t really float my boat as a consumer.

    And most ‘New tech’ isn’t that new, it’s just new to the consumer market, and theses days most new computer consumer tech seems aimed at milking the gameing market which bores me rigid.

    LG's rollable tv and the led tech behind Corsair's dominator platinum rgb. I have no plans to buy either but seeing the tech was interesting to me.

    It’s all very well talking about CES, but who really cares about the latest marketing hype?

    The latest advances in (smartphones|rgblighting|watercooling|glass_sided_cases|gaming_technolgy|etc) pale into significance when compared to research in fields such as medical science where the results have real impact on people’s lives - in many cases life and death impact.

    Yes i agree, most world changing innovations come from such things. But then you're often waiting years for that research to become invested in and made into a real-world application, that is if it doesn't encounter any major stumbling blocks. It's nice seeing concepts realised at CES because you can see it's possible to make today. Also where the hell is my revolutionary new battery tech I've been promised countless times over the years.

    If I'll buy a new monitor, this is it!

    LG 38GL950G-B
    37.5” Curved UltraWide® QHD+ (3840 x 1600) Nano IPS Display
    144Hz (OverClock 175Hz)
    NVIDIA G-SYNC Compatible
    Sphere Lighting 2.0
    3-Side Virtually Borderless Design
    Tilt and Height Adjustable

    But I'm afraid I won't be able to afford it!
