DJI Introduces Smart Remote Controller with Built-In Display at CES 2019

DJI, the world’s leader in civilian drones and aerial imaging technology, continues its tradition of making aerial technology accessible to everyone by introducing a powerful new remote controller for its drones at CES 2019.

The Smart Controller features an ultra-bright display screen and controls optimized for DJI drones, allowing pilots to fly the newest drones without using a smartphone or tablet.

DJI will also be exhibiting its full lineup of consumer drones and handheld imaging products at CES 2019, including the new Osmo Pocket stabilized camera, and will host exciting workshops, hands-on product demonstrations, and more.

The DJI Smart Controller expands the ecosystem of accessories built around DJI’s industry leading drone technology. Using a crisp 5.5” screen built into the controller itself, the Smart Controller allows pilots to quickly get their drone in the air without the need to connect to a mobile device.

It can be paired with DJI’s newest drones including Mavic 2 Zoom and Mavic 2 Pro which use DJI’s OcuSync 2.0 video transmission system, displaying vivid images in Full HD resolution.

Drone pilots can take advantage of its compact, highly portable design that has been optimized for use in direct sunlight. It features an ultra-bright display with an output of 1000 cd/m2 twice the brightness of standard smart phones. A customizable Android dashboard supports DJI GO 4, DJI Pilot, along with various third-party apps such as editing programs.

The DJI GO 4 app also touts several new features including SkyTalk, that allows pilots to livestream the drone’s camera feed to social channels including Facebook, Instagram and WeChat so that anyone can experience the thrill of flying a drone. Another new feature is DJI GO-Share which easily transfers imagery from the Controller to your mobile device.

The DJI Smart Controller brings a new level of reliability when flying, with 2.5 hours of battery life and the ability to operate in adverse temperatures as cold as -4° Farenheit.

The New Smart Controller will be available for purchase beginning in early 2019 for the retail price of $649 USD.

Swedish company myFC showcases its products that will release electric cars and smartphones from wall-fettered charging at CES 2019. The products include the LAMINA REX, the JAQ Hybrid, and the LAMINA MAX.

LAMINA REX is a fuel cell powered range extender for the automotive market. MyFC initiated the development of LAMINA REX toward the automotive industry in order to solve the limitations of today’s battery technology and to support the electrification of the global car fleet, reducing CO2 emissions globally.

At CES 2019, myFC will show a demo of a car component with integrated fuel cells and two convenient ways to charge the car batteries. This demonstration proves how the company’s fuel cell technology can be integrated in small spaces to reduce battery weight and extend driving range with zero tail pipe emissions.

The JAQ Hybrid is the world’s first and smallest portable fuel cell power bank. The power card, micro fuel cell and power management system of the JAQ Hybrid are all under continuous improvement, and at CES 2019, live demonstrations of the latest system will be made. The JAQ Hybrid is trimmed and updated with all the required certifications such as FCC, PSE, IEC and CCC.

The JAQ Hybrid system is easy to use and always ready, providing connectivity assurance for the most unpredictable of moments. Single-use power cards containing water, salt and safe reaction components provide green electricity, and charge JAQ Hybrid’s integrated battery, providing convenient, green energy, always.

The JAQ Hybrid system has enough capacity to power one smartphone charge, depending on the capacity of the phone battery. It has an output power 5 W and a capacity of 2,700 mAh plus the energy the power card gives. It is compatible with Android, Apple iOS, Windows smartphone, tablets, and USB 5V devices and fully compliant with international air safety regulations.

The LAMINA MAX – a deep integration of fuel cells in smartphones – is myFC’s latest offering. This offering provides smartphone manufacturers with a sought-after competitive edge and consumers with power gap relief.

The integrated fuel cell, which is still under development, currently builds less than 0.8 mm in the smartphone. Its dedicated PowerCard weighs about 30 grams and provides a full working day mobile activity extension. The reference design will be available for private viewings at CES 2019.

Olive Healthcare Measures Belly Fat with Bello at CES 2019

Olive Healthcare Inc., will promote the Bello belly fat scanner at CES 2019. Bello is the first product to quantitatively measure belly fat based on near-infrared technology. Bello works with its own app to analyze the measured data.

Bello helps consumers to measure their own belly fat anytime and anywhere, without having to go to a hospital for a belly CT scan. This has a strongly preventative function, as belly fat constitutes a higher risk factor than just an obesity: recent studies have shown that people with normal BMI and overfat have twice the mortality than those who have obesity or who are overweight.

Bello measures the belly fat quantities in just three seconds with a one-button operation. An integrated mobile app analyzes the risk and status of the measured values and presents personalized dietary and exercise guidelines based on big data analysis. Users can manage their belly fat with a healthy habit of constantly using a Bello and its app, creating a healthy and stylish body.

At CES 2019, Olive Healthcare has a promotion where they will give a $5 Amazon coupon to those who visited the Olive Healthcare booth and who friended Olive Healthcare on Facebook after measuring belly fat with Bello. This event will be held throughout the CES 2019, and coupons will be limited to 85 people a day on a first-come, first-served basis.

Bello will be shipped in 2019. Olive Healthcare plans to provide Bello to customers via Amazon in the third quarter of 2019. A Bello and its app bundle will cost $249 and will require no additional service charges.

Visit Bello at CES 2019 at Sands Hall A-D, Booth #43656.

HumanScale Unveils M/Connect 3 at CES 2019

Humanscale is expanding its patented dock system technology with the introduction of M/Connect 3. Its dual-level design allows for a comprehensive cable management system and instantly transforms desktops into connected, clutter-free workstations.

More versatile than ever, M/Connect 3 can be used with or without a monitor arm allowing users the freedom to work how and where they want.

Compatible with USB 3.1 (Type C) notebooks and Thunderbolt notebooks, M/Connect 3 provides power delivery while transforming data to desktop monitors via a bridge cable.

By positioning the hub on top of the workspace for easy access to ports used on a daily basis (for charging, audio and data needs) along with the option for Qi Wireless Charging, and a dock underneath the desk for permanent connections, M/Connect 3 is a key tool for agile working.

The hub and dock together offer a total of seven USB ports, including one upstream port and two ports with high-speed charging capabilities. The strategic split design helps to ensure an optimal, functioning workspace even with a rotation of users.

The M/Connect 3, with its dual-level design, removes several feet of extraneous cables and frees up valuable desk surface, making a dramatic impact on the user’s cable management system. Clutter-free workstations not only provide a unified design aesthetic, but they also create additional space for processionals as they need.

Regardless of their preferred device, users have instant access to power and their desktop. M/Connect 3 supports 4K video resolution for up to 2 monitors, or 1 monitor at 5K resolution, and is compatible with major operating systems.
