Razer doesn’t like you calling its Nabu, a “Smartwatch”; it prefers if you call it a watch with smart features and functions. The tough looking Nabu comes in two variants: the $149.99 standard edition which will be available by late January is built with polycarbonate and features green hues, while the $199.99 Forged Edition demands a bigger price for its stainless steel buttons and black details. You can get your hands on the Forged edition online or a brick-and-mortar store. The “smart” features of the Nabu can be seen in the secondary screen which will show the emails, calls, texts, alerts, etc. The built-in accelerometer acts as your fitness buddy by counting the number of steps taken, calories burned, distance traveled, etc. Oh, and an interesting feature exclusive to Nabu-to-Nabu users is… you can exchange Twitter and Facebook information by means of a simple handshake!

All of us are familiar with the concept of a projector screen…one moment the screen is there, and the next moment it isn’t. Well, the Panasonic’s CES booth saw something like this, but MUCH MUCH better! Panasonic wowed its visitors with its latest transparent display which currently supports a resolution of 1080p. Right out of a sci-fi film, the transparent screen can be put up anywhere, in front of a cupboard, against the wall, etc. The beauty of the display lies in the fact that you can view the contents behind the display when not in use, and then with a simple activation, that space is taken over by a potential TV screen! There is no word on the pricing yet, but you may bet on the fact that this will be one expensive piece of marvel.

All in all, the third day of the CES 2016 seemed like a day to remember for all tech aficionadas, didn’t it?
