However, with a new collaboration with Volkswagen, the Concept R could become a Monster first: a true production vehicle.

Hisense spent much of the time at its press conference on its sponsorship of the upcoming soccer World Cup (football in most if the world). It even brought in two well-known soccer commentators (though not well known here) and several stars of the game. The big news on the Hisense-World Cup connection is that newly purchased Hisense Smart TVs will come pre-loaded with an application (via Fox Sports GO in the US) that will not only provide live feeds of the games but also offer 37 different, user selectable camera angles.

With so many companies making big announcements, Shure is going low-key with an announcement about a new line of detachable cable options for their wireless earphones. It doesn’t seem like much to get excited about, but it actually is.

Samung made a huge statement as the 2018 CES was preparing to open—and we mean "huge"—with the introduction of The Wall, a 146-inch diagonal micro LED display that is expected to reach the consumer market later this year. Meanwhile, enthusiasts should cheer the company's new Q series quantum dot LCD UHDTVs, which will include the Q9S, an 85-inch model with 8K resolution, and the Q9, a more mainstream UHD set that marks the return of high-performance full-array local dimming to Samsung's premium model.
