Samsung will unveil three creative projects at CES 2018
Samsung has announced it will unveil three creative projects at CES 2018 in Las Vegas to “explore new business opportunities”. The innovative projects have been in development by it’s Creative Lab programme since December 2012.
“Since launching five years ago, our C-Lab program has gained exciting momentum across Samsung, helping foster an innovation culture, and providing avenue for our creative, talented employees to pursue innovative new projects. We will continuously introduce innovative projects through our C-Lab program.” – Jaiil Lee, Samsung Electronics vice president and head of the creativity and innovation centre.
The three projects include ‘S-Ray’ – also known as Sound Ray, a portable directional speaker made smaller and lighter than conventional directional speakers, that allows you to listen to music without disturbing those around you.
The second project is ‘GoBreath’, a portable device and app that functions as a recovery solution for people who have experienced lung damage and suffer from postoperative pulmonary complications after general anaesthesia. GoBreath also offers a web and cloud service for doctors to monitor patient recovery progress, as well as provide reminders to practice.
Finally, Relúmĭno is a visual aid app designed to help people with low vision. The name itself originates from the Latin meaning ‘to return back the light’. The app uses Gear VR to assist visually-impaired people by enhancing their vision to overcome everyday challenges. Building on that concept, Samsung’s Creative Lab built Relúmĭno glasses to utilize the technology more comfortably and discreetly. Samsung’s aim was to offer an affordable option for the visually impaired.
