One of the best demos I took in at CES was provided by French tech company Giroptic, a participant in the cutting-edge Tech West expo at the Sands. Part of it had to do with the quality of the seamless 360-degree HD video captured by the company’s Go Pro-style compact camera. But a bigger part had to do with the fact that the footage was being displayed on the Oculus Rift—my first experience with that storied, soon-to-come VR headset.

Wi-Fi dead spots can be a problem, especially if you have a sizeable home. To get wireless Internet connectivity to a bedroom at the opposite end from where your Wi-Fi router is set up very well might require a range extender—Linksys’ N600 PRO, for instance.

Samsung’s yet-to-be named new wireless speaker has a distinctive football-like shape. On second thought, it looks like a coffee percolator. Whatever—the important thing is that the design is a big improvement over the company’s first-generation wireless speakers.

IOGEAR’s Universal Dock with 4K monitor support extends the capabilities of your desktop, laptop, or Ultrabook so it can connect to pretty much anything, 4K TVs included. Even if you neglected to take advantage of half of the connectivity options that it provides, you’d still get a gooey, good feeling knowing you have almost unlimited means to make a hook-up.

4K TV? Old news. Japanese broadcaster NHK already has plans underway to start 8K broadcasts sometime in 2016. That date isn’t far off at all, so there are presumably plans in the works to make TVs that can actually receive those broadcasts.

While its pixel-splitting Beyond 4K sets were the ones that grabbed the most attention at Sharp’s CES press conference, there are other 4K TV highlights to be seen in a visit to the company’s CES booth.

Still not stoked about 3D TV? How about an 8K-res 3D LED TV that doesn’t require glasses—one that’s 110 inches?

Like every other major TV maker at CES, Sony is demo’ing high dynamic range content. And like every other HDR demo I’ve seen at CES, Sony’s makes conventional, non-HDR displays look grossly inadequate in comparison.

Ultra HDTV will soon be divided into two tiers: lame, regular old UHD, and awesome, premium-grade UHD. How will you know which grade to get when you fill up at the pump—I mean, visit an electronics store?

Curved screen or flat? That’s a choice buyers of new high-end TVs need to make these days.There are compelling arguments to be made for either option, especially when you ramp up to larger screen sizes. What if you could have it both ways?
