In Pictures: Best of CES 2014

Here’s what grabbed our attention at the sprawling CES 2014 gadget show in Las Vegas

QuantuMDx -- Q-POC, handheld DNA analyzer This UK-based startup has developed a set of technologies, being packaged into a handheld device, that can extract DNA from a patient’s fluid sample and run a series of diagnostics to detect and identify various diseases, in less than 20 minutes, right beside the patient. QuantuMDx is working with partners to develop companion diagnostics in the form of disposable cartridges. Q-POC is still in development, and due out in 2015. It’s aimed at professional healthcare workers in both developed and developing countries, but the approach could be the basis of a new level of low-cost self-care or at least self-diagnosis.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
