The ASUS Republic of Gamers surely won’t be denied any big reveals during CES 2020. The ROG Experience will continue to roll on with their newest gaming machine that’s a mix of power and portability. And best of all, ASUS ROG wants to bring as much power to the gamer as possible with this one.

Meet the ROG Zephyrus G14, the company’s latest take on thin and light gaming laptops. It comes in an ultraslim 14-inch form factor and only weighs about 1.6kg, yet packs powerful inside. The hardware includes the new AMD Ryzen 4000 series mobile processor, 32GB of RAM and an NVIDIA RTX 2060 graphics card. With all of that inside, you can expect great performance for all around productivity and gaming.

This device also introduces a more personalized ROG splash LED experience. Using the AniMe Matrix, gamers and sound mixers can express their creativity through careful control of the mini LEDs. The company devoted a ton of efforts towards making this technology relatively sustainable through proper heat control and proper power requirements.

The Zephyrus G14 comes in two different display options. For content creators and frequent movie/video streamers, it’s best to go for the WQHD (2560 x 1440) option. Along with the NVIDIA RTX 2060, creators will see more pixels when curating their work, increasing attention to detail. If you’re a hardcore gamer, you’re better off going for the FHD display that cranks up to a 120Hz refresh rate. Faster refresh rates aid in quicker responses during intense gaming moments while maintaining image quality.

Pricing and availability for the ROG Zephyrus G14 have yet to be announced.

Sex tech is for everyone, not just for men

CES 2020 encourages sex positivity

Published

on

Startup Lora DiCarlo graced the headlines last year for having its award revoked by the committee behind the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). The startup believes it was unjust and fought for its right to be part of the annual show.

This year, Lora DiCarlo is the talk of the town once again, not because of an issue, but for being in the spotlight of CES 2020. Lora DiCarlo paved the way for sex tech to be out in the open, particularly companies with devices geared for women’s sex, health, and wellness.

Sex tech isn’t new, but sex being taboo in this modern yet surprisingly conservative society took the spotlight away from their devices. In case you’re wondering, sex technology mostly ventures on innovations to enhance our sexuality and sexual experience.

Breaking barriers

In 2017, men enjoyed VR porn as if it was that revolutionary, while sex toys and vibrators that offer solutions to enhance our experiences and relationships aren’t getting the splash they deserve. Thankfully, CES 2020 is taking a step forward in ending sexism and encourage sex-positivity. After all, sex is part of human nature.

Ever since Lora Haddock DiCarlo — the founder of Lora DiCarlo — fought for their right to be at CES, I was astounded and followed her journey. I’m all ears for women speaking up, especially with the goal of making a change in our society.

Lora DiCarlo’s Osé won an innovative award and was later revoked by CES. Eventually, Lora DiCarlo got the award reinstated while fighting for sex tech to be recognized in a separate category.

Now that DiCarlo and her company sparked a controversy, sex tech are now in the spotlight of the annual show held at Las Vegas. DiCarlo didn’t expect herself to be at the forefront of change, but it elevated her profile and grew her business.

Pleasure is at the forefront

At CES 2020, Lora DiCarlo showcased their first device once again — the Osé — is a personal massager which produces blended orgasm by mimicking movements of a human partner. It’s that revolutionary, hence, gaining an innovation award. I mean, just imagine a device pleasuring you the way a human partner does — It’s astonishing!

Additionally, Lora DiCarlo unveiled two more devices: Baci and Onda. Baci is a micro-robotic device which stimulates the feel and motion of human lips and tongue, while Onda mimics the motion of human fingers. Even though it’s meant for women, I can’t wait to actually try one!

More sex technology to solve our needs

DiCarlo’s fight enabled other companies and devices to get noticed and join the spotlight. Satisfyer showed-off Satisyfer Connect, an app that can be used remotely with a long-distance partner. Lioness delivered its second-generation vibrator tracking data to improve orgasms.

Furthermore, Womanizer exhibited their products and Pleasure Air Technology — a combination of suction and pressure waves — which brings a mindblowing, orgasmic experience. While all of these talk about pleasure, Morari introduced a “band-aid” that withholds pleasure, solving the premature ejaculation issue prevalent with men.

2020 might just be the beginning, but CES showcasing sex technology is a huge step forward in encouraging a sex-positive society. If you’re still iffy about this technology, remember that you’re not the target audience and that you were born because your parents had sex.
