Consumer Electronics Show 2018 brings us a bit closer to the future.

Part of that future includes giving humans superpowers. For example, with FLIR, you can glimpse into the infrared spectrum using special heat-sensitive camera technology. FLIR (which stands for Forward Looking InfraRed) Systems uses a sensor and display package that translates heat imaging into spectral imaging – like the alien from the movie Predator. Imagine it like this: you can see heat rather than feeling it.

Heat Vision Like the Predator

Here’s a video of FLIR in action:

While FLIR has been out for a while, in 2018, they finally got the price of their basic heat camera under $200, making it affordable to most consumers. But who needs infrared vision? Pretty much anyone involved in industries where even slight differences in heat may mean a potential fire hazard or a lack of insulation. That includes construction, security, and more.

FLIR also runs a virtual reality training program for using the heat visualizer. Which can shorten the training period that employees use in order to understand how to use FLIR.

FLIR infrared camera received several new models, aimed at sectors as diverse and construction and home security. FLIR also ties into automotive technology, like the

Want a Robotic Assistant Like Tony Stark? Alexa and Google Assistant

The biggest winners from 2018’s CES are Amazon Alexa and Google’s Assistant software. Both smart assistants made their way into an endless number of smart home hubs, switches, and other products, such as Belkin’s Wemo series.

Wemo allows users to control lights and other appliances with just their voice. While none of this is new, what’s novel about it is Google Assistant voice integration. What’s novel about Google Assistant is its superior voice recognition capabilities, compared to Alexa and Siri. Overall, Google Assistant does a lot more than its competitors.

Among the biggest trends this year – aside from the emergence of Google Assistant and Alexa-enabled smart home products, are the diverse and endless waves of remote control drones. Drones fly in the sky, race along the ground, and now swim in the sea.

Want to Swim in the Ocean like Aquaman? PowerVision’s Swimming Drones

You won’t literally swim in the ocean like Aquaman, but drone technology allows users to remote control an underwater craft equipped for catching fish or exploration. PowerVision will manufacture two models of underwater drone, one targeted at fisherman and one aimed at underwater exploration. Both tie into virtual reality headsets (VR drones

who can communicate with all underwater creatures, think of it this way: fisherman could catch a lot more fish if they knew where the schools of future fish sticks are.

Using drone technology, fishermen can peer under the water, finding the most plentiful schools of fish using their augmented senses. PowerVision currently manufacturers one underwater drones: the PowerRay. The PowerRay comes in three versions, ranging in price from $1,488 to $1,888.3 Superpowers You Can Get at CES 2018: Drones, Instant Camera, and More powervision drone underwater 670x447

PowerVision also has an upcoming underwater drone, the PowerDolphin. The PowerDolphin is more or less a faster, more powerful version of the PowerRay.

Do You Want to Literally Fly Like Superman?

Yuneec manufacturers an ultra large drone capable of transporting a human being. Unfortunately, it requires federal certification in order to enter US markets – which means it may never become a product. While you can’t fly in a drone, you can, however, get a racing drone. Unlike hovering drones, a racing drone can hit (size proportionate) speeds approaching that of an actual human-flown aircraft.

The upcoming Yuneec HD Racer offers a combination of low video latency, built in stabilization, good range of 300ft, and a 13mp camera. While the price hasn’t been announced yet, it’ll probably retail for less than $100 — which brings midrange drone specs into the striking range of those on a shoestring budget.

Yuneec also manufactures the Breeze 4K
