The CES2020, the largest electronic and innovation fair in the world, warm up the engines. Waiting for the departure scheduled for January 7, anticipations flock, and these are the latest that arrive on the Korean home.
C-Lab, Samsung's innovation division is somewhat the equivalent of the "Q sector" in James Bond films. An office of "fools" who try to solve common problems with unusual methods. And during the next CES2020 there will be some pretty cool news.
SelfieType, writing without hands
Let's start with the more practical one: SelfieType. As the name suggests, it is a device that uses the selfie camera of your smartphone and an artificial intelligence software to translate the movements of the fingers into text typed from the keyboard. You won't need to pick up the phone to answer a message when your hands are busy, or while you drive. Samsung chat bodes well for the future.
Becom, tell me what hair you have and I'll tell you how to save it
Samsung also promises to come to the rescue of anyone struggling with hair loss. His plan becom uses a handheld device, artificial intelligence, and a mobile app to scan the scalp. The diagnosis is quite accurate, and allows to detect dead skin, hair follicle density and other parameters. The system is not limited only to monitoring the health of the hair, but also suggests the best solution (perhaps to be adopted under the supervision of a doctor with "natural intelligence").
You can also analyze a history to understand if the trend of your hair is stable or falling, that is, if the hair is taking off or is still firmly in the head.
Samsung will obviously present a wider range of proposals and research, after all the CES2020 is a kermesse that has room for everything. Other C-Lab news in sight:
SunnySide, a sort of "artificial window" that produces synthetic sunlight calibrated to help the body produce vitamin D without the harmful effects of the natural sun.
Ultra V instead it will combine a sensor and a service to track UV rays, almost like a radar of harmful rays, and will help manage skin conditions.
pibo, a humanoid robot offers information and "simple conversations" with phrases and facial expressions.
FITT produces personalized training routines and disease diagnostics with fitness tests on heart, muscle strength and posture.
Vtouch uses eye and finger tracking to control devices such as cars and smart homes.
Finally, smoothy is a group video chat app that starts in silent mode to make you respond on your terms.
As in the past, there is a good chance that some internal Samsung C-Lab projects will turn into full-fledged products. Will they be successful or not? This is another matter :)
Maybe we'll talk more about it in the next few days, if there is something worth mentioning.
