SHARPen Your Senses and Experience a Vision for a Better Future
MONTVALE, N.J., Jan. 2, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Sharp, a global leader in innovative technology solutions, is bringing the future to the five senses at CES 2024, taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada, from January 9 to 12, 2024. Experience products and components that will extend your sight, please your taste buds, detect the slightest differences in scents, replace traditionally loud household products with quiet alternatives, and even feel your heartbeat with miniature wearable devices to read your vital signs.
"As Sharp celebrates its 111th anniversary, Sharp is proud to lead the way in innovation and game-changing technologies," said Jeff Ashida, Chairman, President & CEO of Sharp Electronics Corporation. "We are excited to share Sharp's cutting-edge solutions that will define the next chapter of Sharp's legacy at CES 2024."
Under the theme "Toward the Future for a Better Life," Sharp will showcase a diverse range of groundbreaking technologies, initially introduced at Sharp Tech-Day in Tokyo in November 2023.
SMART LIVING: REDEFINING HOME EXPERIENCES
Sharp's booth will feature a captivating Smart Living exhibit, where cutting-edge technologies converge to enhance daily life. Central to this display will be the revolutionary CE-LLM (Communication Edge-LLM) edge AI technology, powering a virtual tour guide capable of engaging visitors with naturally paced and lively interactive conversations.
The exhibit will highlight a High-Speed Oven with proprietary Quad Heating Technologies. Combining the industry's first gold carbon heater for charcoal grill flavor, convection circulation, inverter control microwave, and intelligent cooking control, this High-Speed Oven helps reduce cooking time to as little as 1/3 of that of a conventional home oven.
Sharp is also showcasing powerful hair dryers and upright vacuum cleaners designed to operate at or near 50db, approximately as quiet as a household refrigerator. Moreover, non-contact vital signs sensors and the world's smallest vital signs sensors for wearable devices will be shown.
SMART INDUSTRY: ACCELERATING BUSINESS INNOVATION
Sharp will present technologies designed to boost speed and efficiency across various sectors in the Smart Industry section. The exhibit will include camera technology featuring polymer lenses and support for XR technology, XR glasses, and AI-powered visual representations of business conversations and ideas.
With technology inspired by the method living organisms use to sense odors, the AI Olfactory Sensor is designed with a target detection limit of 0.1 ppb (parts per billion). The exhibit will show how the AI Olfactory sensor detects the subtle differences between wine varieties. An IMS (ion mobility spectrometry) gas analysis device using atmospheric electron release technology will also be displayed.
Sharp will introduce a safe driving support system with a miniature camera and LCD. Finely tuned to identify situations where the driver cannot maintain a consistent line of sight, the driver monitor camera can help detect drowsiness, unresponsiveness, and distracted driving.
SUSTAINABILITY: PIONEERING RENEWABLE ENERGIES FOR A GREENER TOMORROW
Sharp's commitment to sustainability will be evident in the technologies to be showcased in the Sustainability exhibit. The display will include Reflective LCD signage for outdoor use and ePoster color electronic paper displays with low power consumption. An indoor photovoltaic device LC-LH, utilizing indoor light for more efficient power generation will be demonstrated with a battery-free TV Remote Control featuring the LC-LH device.
Sharp's Space Solar Sheet, a thin, lightweight, and flexible next-generation solar cell module, will be unveiled, underlining the company's dedication to addressing environmental challenges through improved power efficiency.
Sharp invites attendees, media, and industry professionals to experience the future of technology at CES 2024. Visit Sharp's booth #17229, Central Hall, Las Vegas Convention Center to witness firsthand the innovative solutions poised to shape a better and more connected world.
