We should expect four devices shown off with Relúmĭno, Monitorless, VuildUs, and traVRer. These four different technologies are all intriguing, a nice direction for Samsung to see what could stick around in a few years.

Samsung's strangely named Relúmĭno is a "smart visual aid" for the Gear VR that will benefit the visually impaired so that they could read and watch TV with "new levels of clarity".


This is what excites me the most, is Samsung's tease of Monitorless - a pair of "sunglasses" that are capable of VR and VR tech. They would connect to your smartphone or PC, letting you use your products in AR or VR - impressive.

VuildUs - The Future Of Home Shopping

Samsung's VuildUs is an app that lets people see what furniture looks like in their house before they buy it. This is the future of home shopping.
