    Hi everyone!

    It has already been over two months since I posted a thread here.:eek: I have to apologize for my inactivity these days. I accepted a challenge to join another team, but then realized how I miss everyone so much! 2020 is the beginning of my new journey with the community.:p Nah, keep the boring intro aside and let's dive into what happened this week.

    CES 2020 - A Tech Wild Show
    Here are several picks of my favorites:

    The OnePlus Concept One is the first phone ever to use color-shifting glass technology (electrochromic glass technology), giving it an “invisible camera.” The device marks a breakthrough exploration in smartphone CMF (color, material, finish) design and lays the foundation for future smartphones with radically new designs and capabilities.
    • Sony Vision-S Concept Car

    • The Mercedes-Benz Vision AVTR
    'Image a car that delivers a completely new experience, which combines an inside-out design philosophy, with an outside-in approach to connecting passengers and environment'.
    I was totally impressed by this avant-garde design.

    Others you shouldn't miss:
    • @Joel Jacob started a survey to collect your opinions towards audio accessories. We want to better understand your habits to improve our future product portfolios.
    • We are starting to push the incremental rollout of OxygenOS 9.0.10 for the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T. Check more details here.
    • Wormhole is welcoming its 500K reply and its 5th anniversary, let's see who will be part of that milestone.
    • @YRJ went old-school and did a hand-written review of the McLaren x OnePlus pen.
    That's all for this weekend, thanks for reading!
    Don't forget to comment below what CES presentations have left you the strongest impression.

    I think the internet will bully Sony to mass produce that car, or at least a limited run. :D

    Never been to CES, so thanks for the 90-second summary. I'm really looking forward to seeing "skateboard"-based EV's take off (I'm probably in the minority who's a fan of the new Ford Mustang Mach-E) to take ICE's head-on.

    Now if we can just get all of these ubercars to support Android Auto wireless out of the gate...

    Welcome back, @Trista W., great to see you here - and thank you for the recap :cool:

    About you mentioning the Vision-S Concept Car, it's clear to me that's a tease and OnePlus is already developing its own electric car. So much so, you should name it the "Warp Car". :rolleyes::D

    Have a great weekend everyone! :D

    Mercedes-Benz VISION AVTR. It really blew my mind. What a beautifull inspiration. and the way they have integrated the car and the car and the human is just amazing. By far the best Concept I have seen.

    Yes I agree but it serves the purpose. Down force can be precisely adjusted as per the condition.
