Microsoft's Surface Hub goes big, Samsung screens go clear

Culture
Microsoft surface is going big, and boy do I mean big. I'm Bridget Carey, and this is your CNET update. [MUSIC] Your office can now purchase Microsoft's whiteboard of the future only for a mere $7,000. This is the Surface Hub and Microsoft gave the world a glimpse of this massive conference room computer back in January. It's designed to replace all the gadgetry typically found in a meeting room. And now we know the price. The 55 inch model is seven grand but if you want to go all out there's an 84 inch model with better hardware and that's $20,000. It'll start shipping in July. Now 20 grand sounds steep, keep in mind that projectors and high end video conferencing equipment can add up to be more than $30,000. The wall mounted computer can be operated with your hands, a stylus or your voice. it can hold conference calls or be used for note taking during brainstorming sessions. This is just another way for Microsoft to tempt businesses to use Windows ten. But if you want your office to get really futuristic try on Samsung's first transparent OLED display it also can be made into a mirror So you could replace the mirror in the work bathroom with this. No, actually it makes more sense for a retail store to use this as a clothing fitting room mirror. Letting you interact with transparent windows to call for assistance. Or see if an item's in stock. Some retailers like Neiman Marcus and Rebecca Minkoff are testing this type of technology out in their Fitting rooms I got to see firsthand earlier this year at the National Retail Federation show in New York. Tech is also transforming the kitchen. This is the June Intelligent Oven. It's the size of a toaster oven, but costs more than a high-end, full-sized range. It's $1500. It's packed with the same nVidia type of processor you'd find in a tablet, along with a camera and wifi. All this for the ability to detect what type of food you just put in it, so it can offer suggestions on how to cook it. The camera records video, so you can take a peek at your dish through the video stream on your phone app. Or you can save a time-lapse video as it cooks to share on social media. But you can't own it yet. The first test units won't be fully baked until the fall. And before we close, a few quick updates from the social world. You can now play a game inside of Facebook Messenger Chat. It's an add-on app extension called Doodle Draw. Similar to Pictionary, you get a word to draw, and friend have to guess what it is. To access it, first go into a chat conversation and click the more button. That's the little ellipses on the bottom. Then find Doodle Draw to install. And the video app Vine now makes it easier to search through the network's six-second clips. The explore tab let you search people, tags, or any word or phrase. [MUSIC] That's it for this Tech News Roundup. And there's always more at cnet.com. From our studios in New York, I'm Bridget Carey.
