Latest Consumer Technology Products On Display At Annual CES In Las Vegas

Google quietly acquired a United Kingdom tech startup without anyone noticing - until now that is. Google declined to comment on the price and details of the deal. Turning screens into speakers would help free up space inside smartphones for other components like bigger batteries. Google might also use the acquisition to improve its future handsets' haptic feedback. The transfer of shares of Redux's holding company NVF Tech was confirmed by United Kingdom regulatory filings on 13 December, but Crunchbase says the deal happened in August. Redux's technology uses vibrations with displays for a variety of different things, and the most notable use of this is the ability to harness these vibrations to turn displays into functioning speakers. Redux is able to turn screens into a speakers by vibrating the screen itself. Redux claims that Tactile Feedback is "energy-efficient and scalable". Redux has demoed the tech with a custom-built PC monitor.

Neither the date of the acquisition, first spotted by Bloomberg, or how much Google paid has been revealed. The current Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL were criticized by some quarters for not trimming their bezels quite as aggressively as other devices on the market did.

At CES 2018, Google mainly focused on promoting its smart speakers and its new line of Smart Display devices, its direct competitor to the Amazon Echo Show.
