CES 2018 voice control is THE trend

January 10, 2018, By Jennifer Colegrove Ph.D. Touch Display Research Inc.

I’m at the raining Las Vegas for the CES 2018. (Rain is very rare at Las Vegas, but rain is good for this region. But it sure caused slow traffic.) Today is the first day of the exhibition, while yesterday was a whole day of press conferences.

Clearly, voice control/voice recognition is the number one trend of this year.

  • Yesterday, at Samsung’s press conference Samsung emphasized their voice control to be integrated to their refrigerator with a huge touch display, to make it into integrated family hub.
  • Faurecia’s press conference announced to partner with Amazon Alexa to bring the voice command experience from living room to cars.
  • Over 40 smart speakers are already in the market or announced.

In the recently published “Voice Command, Voice Translator, Smart Speaker Technologies, Supply Chain and Market Forecast 2017 Report,” Touch Display Research forecasts the overall voice recognition market will grow to $43 billion in 2024.

October 18, 2017.  By Jennifer Colegrove Ph.D.

Today, HP just announced the new ZBook X2 detachable PC with a Wacom’s active pen with 4096 pressure sensitive levels. The active pen has natural tilt and almost zero latency.

HP is the earlier adopter of active pen. Its TouchSmart 12.1” NB PCs has adopted N-trig’s DuoSense active pen technology around 2009. HP is the company which has tried many types of active pens in the past 8 years.

Fourteen major brands’ adoption of active pen is analyzed in the Active pen 2017 report.

About 4 months ago, Apple just announced two new iPad Pro: the 10.5 inch version and the 12.9 inch version with active pens.

The active pen industry landscape has changed dramatically in the recent 3 years: Companies actively working on active pens has increased from 60 companies in 2014 to over 120 companies in 2017. These over 120 companies’ profiles are in the excel database. The strengths and weaknesses of key players are analyzed in this report.

The Active Pen 2017 Report provides the detail pen technologies analysis of 21 types of pen: 13 active pen and 8 passive pens.

There is no perfect active pen yet in the market. The 10 key characters of an ideal active pen are analyzed in chapter 8. This report provides not only the outlook for active pen and penetration in touch devices, but also provide Bill of Material (BOM) analysis of active pen module for “pen only” and “pen and finger” touch in chapter 7.

Over 100 devices with active pen are compared side by side with pen technologies and pen suppliers in the excel database.

Touch Display Research forecasted the active pen market will grow rapidly in the next several years.
