Japan CEATEC: Ultra high-def TVs, an INSECT from Toyota, and smarter homes

Jay Alabaster | Oct. 1, 2012
At the CEATEC show that opens in Japan this week, the country's electronics manufacturers will show a host of products.

NTT DoCoMo, Japan's largest operator, will demonstrate a number of mobile concepts, including a tablet that tracks the movements of its users' eyes, and a camera-laden pair of eyeglasses that continuously scan the wearer's face to reproduce their facial expressions more accurately in video chat.

Chinese manufacturer Huawei has said it will appear at the show for the first time, modeling its phones and tablets. However, the relationship between Japan and China have soured in recent weeks over a set of disputed islands, with mass anti-Japan protests occurring in China and Chinese rioters smashing Japanese factories.

CEATEC, whose roots run back to 1964, has faded a bit in recent years as Japanese manufacturers focus on more globally-oriented shows such as last month's IFA in Germany. CEATEC runs from Tuesday to Saturday in Makuhari, just outside of Tokyo.
