Elaine Martin and her trip to CES 2015

Las Vegas is a city rich in opulence. From the the indoor canal at the Venetian to the $66 million dollar statue of Popeye the sailor at the Wynn, it is very clear that no expense was spared when constructing these lavish casino-resorts that make up the world famous section of Las Vegas Boulevard. Vegas is also known as a Disneyland for adults with attractions such as the flaming fireball show at the Mirage's volcano; the various themed slot machines and table games and shows such as Cirque Du Soleil's Mystere at the Treasure Island. All of this creating the perfect setting for CES; the flashiest and most extravagant tech show in the world.

Our trip to Sin City began by going to the pinnacle of lavishness at the world renowned Caesar’s Palace where ASUS was ready to unveil its’ early 2015 lineup. Based on past years, this event was sure to have premium devices with an unbelievable price tag! This was a tech reporters Christmas, complete with headlines, bylines, taglines, live-blogs, live tweets and the flash of many cameras around the room. Each of these bloggers, Youtubers and tech journalists eager to capture every single second of this event for their audiences.

The following day ASUS invited the press to the Trump Hotel Penthouse Suite where they would get a more intimate one-on-one experience with the products. Here we got a chance to play around with ASUS' new offerings such as the Zenfone 2, ZenBook UX305; existing favorites such as the ASUS-made Nexus Player as well as ASUS AiO PC's, routers, projectors etc.

The Zenfone 2 was a phone unlike any other as it was meant to be accessible and get into to the hands of all. This was achieved hardware-wise by an ergonomic design featuring a curved back that fit perfectly in the curved grip of a human hand and a volume button that fell right in line where the index finger should rest (on the back of the phone). On the software side the ‘tap-tap’ feature allows the resizing and repositioning of the screen which is perfect for using the phone single-handedly or when loaning the phone to younger children. The impressive camera suite also stood out for us with features such as GIF capturing, a vivid HDR mode and night mode which allows for taking pictures in near pitch-black conditions.

Our favorite aspects of the Transformer Chi T300 was its ability to connect to the keyboard dock backwards (great for use as a tablet with a handy stand), forwards(for use as a traditional media laptop) or through a virtual connection via Bluetooth(great for plugging the the tablet into a projector, monitor or TV). The T300 possesses the perfect blend of productivity and portability with its array of sizes and the ability to detach its keyboard.

The following days, we had the awesome opportunity of touring the CES show floor. Some of the highlights and recurring trends we saw were 3D printers, which built figurines and toys; robots ranging from the size of a gumdrop to life-size all different functions such as a wearables (our favorite had to still be the ZenWatch), IoT devices (internet connected homes and automobiles) and other wacky and outlandish gizmos and doohickeys that the inventors believed would improve the lives of many.

Overall, CES 2015 was an amazing experience. A huge thank you to ASUS Campuslife for having us!
