WHAT WILL 2014 BRING FOR US TECHNOLOGY WISE?

WHAT WILL 2014 BRING FOR US TECHNOLOGY WISE?

EACH DAY, A NEW IS BEING ADDED TO THE TECHNOLOGIES AND DEVICES WE USE. WE HAVE BROUGHT TOGETHER THE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES THAT WILL FACILITATE OUR LIVES AND THEREFORE WE MUST BE FAMILIAR WITH.

PlayStation 4
The new PlayStation, which will be introduced to the market at the end of the year, keeps its usual appearance with its new black color, the joysticks will come out in red and blue as well as black. The console, which can be used vertically or horizontally, will be able to meet the expectations of a game monster with its octo-core processor and 8 gigabyte memory. The device will also contain a Blue-ray driver HDMI, USB 3.0, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections and thanks to its Instant-On feature, will not keep the user waiting much at the opening. PlayStation 4 will be introduced to the market on December 13 at a price of 1399 TL.

Xbox One
The new Xbox, which has similar features to PS4 except for the Blue-ray driver, has also updated the movement sensing system called Kinect. Offering a 1080p-resolution (Full HD) camera in each pack, Xbox One operates on a larger angle. Thus, it will be able to “see” 6 persons at the same time and help experience a more pleasurable game experience by perceiving 25 joints. According to Microsoft, the game controller has been improved with more than new features. However, its sale price and when it will be introduced to the market in Turkey is uncertain.

CURVED SCREENS
Samsung Galaxy Round
This smart phone of the Galaxy series looking oblate in the middle, is intended to offer a better view experience with its curved screen. In addition to its 5,7 inch Full HD-resolution screen, its quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor and 3 GB memory mean any operation performed on it will be fast and convenient. Its 13 MP camera, on the other hand, seems to rid the photography enthusiasts of the need to carry cameras with them. When the device will be put on market in Turkey and what its price will be has not been announced yet.

LG G Flex
The 6-inch LG G Flex, with its OLED screen and 720p resolution, is appealing with its extremely slim and slightly curved appearance. Coming out with a battery also curved, G Flex has been devised to be used all day long with a 3500 mAh capacity. Using Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 processor like Samsung and a 13 MP-resolution camera, G Flexwill be put on sale in Europe with its specific interface at the end of the year. Its date of launch and price for Turkey has not been announced yet.

SMART GLASSES
Google Glass
Although launched only for developers, but closely followed by all, Google Glass will reach a larger audience soon. Glass, which fit an image inside the field of view in front of the eye, can record 720p videos with its 5 MP camera; it also has a 12 GB storage capacity, and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections. However, the best thing it can do is to be able to connect to the phone in your pocket that has an Android or iOS operation system. Thus, it becomes possible to see what is going on in the phone.

Apple, Microsoft, Sony
Since Google introduced its glasses, activity in the three biggest brands of technology has not ended. While creative and innovative touches are expected of Apple’s iGlass as in iPod, Microsoft’s glasses are expected to serve as a second screen in Kinect- supported Xbox games. Sony, on the other hand, is expected to make use of Augmented Reality (AR) technologies by transferring its experience in smart watches to glasses. However, when all these products will appear on the market remains a mystery.

HIGH RESOLUTION WITH 4K
Sony KDL-65X9005A
Bringing a Hi-Fi atmosphere to the living rooms with its shapely speaker on the side frame, 65X9005A’s most important feature is its ability to show a resolution four times that of Full HD on its 65-inch screen. This smart TV, with a resolution of 3840×2160 pixels, supports LED back lighting with its technologies called Triluminos and Motionflow XR 800Hz and thus renders action scenes more fast-moving and images more vivid. It also has 3D support.

Samsung UE65F9000
Samsung’s UE65F9000, which can offer 4K on its giant 65-inch screen, is the right address for those seeking high resolution but at the same time it is the right address for those seeking a chic design with its slim frame and body. However, a major quality of this TV is that when a change occurs either in 4K or another major technology, the “brain” in the back panel can be removed and a new one can be put in. Intending to present a natural view, this TV is quite challenging in 3D. Moreover, it can be used without a remote controller because it recognizes voices and images.
