CES 2019: A double take on binoculars

Binoculars that can shoot videos, a laptop that looks like a phone, meat grown in a lab...: The best of CES Las Vegas 2019.  (Hindustan Times, 2/3/2019)
What’s the one device that seems to have been untouched by the digital tech wave? Binoculars! They really haven’t changed much over the years. Until now that is. NexOptic DoubleTake really takes the Bino paradigm and spins it digitally. The eyecups are replaced by a 5-inch HD LCD display (thus you can share what you’re zooming in to with others too), has a quad-core processor to zoom in to things fast and not blur, a 12-megapixel image sensor and 2.5x and 10X true optical zoom. Plus you can shoot photos and even record a 4K video.
