Imaging at CES Roundup
The HMX-Q10 camcorder combines the world’s first Switch Grip with Easy Operation via an LCD screen. The Switch Grip means that no matter how the camcorder is held, the G-magnetic sensor inside the HMX-Q10 recognizes the angle and turns the LCD display so it’s easy to see, and controls recording easily from any angle. Easy Operation means that users can control detailed processes, turn the camcorder on and off and operate the playback function easily through the LCD screen, so controlling the device is intuitive and fuss-free, and viewing footage is as easy as capturing it.
Parrot Intros the DIA Frame
Parrot will introduce their latest digital photo frame: DIA, a frame they playfully describe as a mysterious object developed in collaboration with Jean-Louis Frechin, founder of nodesign agency.
DIA Parrot by nodesign is a white rectangle, very simple, with tactile buttons and a trackball to surf in the menu of the frame. What Parrot explains as most striking about the product is its 10x4 inch high resolution screen. Dismantled, deconstructed, disconnected from the frame as if there was nothing behind, this screen is transparency, is light. The images, they explain, appear through this “light box” in a brand new aesthetic dimension.
