Berlin, September 6 (Xinhua) — Wearing hearing aids, you can not only hear more clearly, but also hear useful information such as navigation, news and even foreign language translation… A hearing aid highlighted at the 2017 Berlin International Consumer Electronics Show (IFA) is known as “leading to cyborg” technology because of its human-machine integration concept.

Denmark’s Resound Linx3D, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of hearing aid manufacturers, showcased its recently launched smart hearing aid Resound Linx3D. When connected to a mobile phone or tablet, this wireless hearing aid system can transmit navigation information, music, sports news and even foreign language translation to the wearer through hearing aids, and in the future, it may also be connected to home appliances such as washing machines, through which you can remotely understand the work of washing machines.

The term “cyborg” appeared in the 60s of the 20th century to refer to organisms that have enhanced their abilities by incorporating artificial elements or technology. The German media “Daily Mirror” believes that although the road to cyborg is still long, health products such as the intelligent hearing aid system at CES 2017 Berlin show that “the first step towards human-machine integration has been taken.”

Israeli historian and author of “A Brief History of Mankind” Yuval Harari has said that with the development of artificial intelligence and biosensors, brain-computer interaction and other technologies, human-computer integration will be fully realized in this century.

This wireless hearing aid system also has a mobile app, which can be operated on the mobile phone to select the user’s scene, home, office and outdoor scenes, etc., to obtain better hearing results.

Using cloud technology, the company’s hearing engineers can also remotely tune the device by simply downloading an update on the app and automatically transferring it to the hearing aid.

Similarly, there is a smart sports product produced by a Chinese company, Livall riding smart helmet. The helmet connects to a smartphone via Bluetooth, so you can talk by pressing a button on the handlebar while riding, without answering the phone with your hands. At the same time, the helmet also has intelligent light display, music playback and SOS distress functions. The helmet won the CES Berlin Smart Motion Innovation Award.

Mobile phone camera oven, higher, faster and stronger

CES Berlin has long been regarded as a bellwether for the consumer electronics and home appliance industry. At the 2017 exhibition, global consumer electronics and home appliance giants launched innovative products and technologies to achieve breakthroughs in higher (clear), faster (processing speed) and stronger (performance).

South Korea’s LG company brought its new V series smartphone LG V30 at this exhibition. The phone is equipped with an F1.6 large aperture lens, which is currently the largest smartphone with a lens aperture.

Japan’s Sony released a new smartphone Xperia XZ1, and its highlights are also reflected in the camera function. The phone uses a 19-megapixel main camera and supports 960fps slow-motion video shooting, and now some phones shoot 240fps slow-motion video that can record the moment when water droplets fall. In addition, Sony also introduced the ultra-compact digital sports camera RXO, a compact camera of only about 110 grams that combines high image quality, high speed and a variety of creative gameplay, and has powerful waterproof, shockproof and anti-collision functions, and is equipped with the Exmor RS CMOS stacked image sensor to support an anti-distortion shutter of up to 1/32,000th of a second.

In terms of household appliances, Miele released its electromagnetic oven product “M Chef”. Unlike general cooking equipment that heats food from the outside in, this oven allows every part of the food to be heated simultaneously and evenly, and different foods can be fed into the oven on the same baking tray to achieve the best cooking results at the same time.

According to reports, this oven has achieved innovation in heating technology, not using a single frequency of electromagnetic waves, but multiple frequencies of electromagnetic waves, and can measure the energy absorbed by food in real time to adjust. Compared to microwaves, multi-frequency electromagnetic waves can penetrate deeper into food.

CES Berlin, the world’s leading trade fair for consumer electronics and home appliances, was held from September 1 to 6 at Messe Berlin and attracted more than 1,800 exhibitors from around the world.
