One of the very best things about a conceptual device is the fact that you can more or less throw in every single bit of technological advancement into the picture, knowing that it does not even have to wait for existing technology and laws of physics to be able to allow it to do so. Vivo has thought of the APEX FullView concept smartphone, which will boast of the world’s very first half-screen in-display fingerprint scanning technology that is merged with other kinds of engineering breakthroughs in its camera, speaker and sensors.

On the education side, Blipblox was one of the more interesting items on the floor. A synth designed for three to eight-year-old kids, the Blipblox has arrow paths on top connecting all the buttons to show the synth’s signal chain. The idea is to get children interested in synthesis basics early on.

The company told me that if kids want to learn more, they can read the manual that comes with it, but that seems to defeat the product’s purpose.
