At the CES meeting to be held next week, Samsung is going to introduce three latest products from its Creative Lab (C-Lab) that includes the WELT smartbelt, head controller for VR and a wrist strap that helps you send audio through fingertip. The CES meeting will start of January 6 and will continue till January 9. The WELT belt is a device that helps you keep track of your waist size, eating habits and the number of day to day activities. It functions as a belt too holding your pants up. The smartbelt will keep your updated by notifying you that you are active, moving and losing weight. It will be geared mainly towards your health and fitness crowd, tracking activities and daily habits with instant and continuous feedback on waist size. The smartbelt functions by connecting to an app which analysis the personal healthcare and weight management plans.
As per the statement by the company, “The ability to intuitively control the game or content just by using their hands provides consumers with a much deeper level of mobile VR immersion”. Since the launch of the Samsung’s Creative Labs in 2012, it has successfully completed 70 projects, 40 of which are being worked on by one of Sammy's other business units, with nine considered to have high potential. Second thing to be launched at the CES 2016 next week is a rink which is just a piece of hardware for VR devices like Samsung. It would help improve user’s experience while playing games.
Last but not the least is TipTalk that allows you to listen to sounds from your smart devices by simply touching your ear with your finger without using any headset or earphone. TipTalk looks similar to a watch strap that can be added to smartwatches like the Samsung Gear S2. The product can sync with smartphones, ‘enabling Text-to-Speech (TTS) functionality’. The strap will send the sound through your body and up through your fingertip, as improbable as it sounds.
