CES 2014

January 20th, 2014

We’re Back from Las Vegas, where we displayed our innovative wireless charging technology at the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Every year since 1967, the show demonstrates smart and innovative tech products and gadgets, from smartphones, smart watches and smart forks to huge TV screens, cars and robots. CES 2014 was not disappointing in that area. Here are some of the products and trends spotted in CES 2014:

Wearable Tech

As predicted, wearable gadgets ruled the CES 2014. LG, Sony and Razer Nabu introduced smart wrist bands for athletes, which measures and display their performance data and send them, along with alerts and text messages, directly to the wrist band. Epson introduced a competitor to Google Glass and Intel displayed sensor-processor devices, designed to be embedded on wearables such as earphones, watches and jewelry.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1gVBmYRUgM

Connected Cars

One of the biggest attractions of this year CES was the connected car, combining smartphone functionalities in-car. Audi futuristic concept car, the Sport quattro laserlight, with its innovative laser and led lighting technology and smartphone-like interface, was applauded by both the audience and the reviewers, and Mercedes Benz collaboration with Google Glass and Nest revealed the future of autonomous driving.

Robotic Gadgets

Wireless, smartphone-controlled toy robots were also a big thing on CES 2014. There were robots that record and display videos, ride motorbikes and unicycles, and other innovations, like the Anki Drive, a toy-car equipped with sensors and intelligent software, that can beat you in a car race.

3D Printing

3D printers enjoyed a lot of attention at the CES 2014. Intel CEO, chefs and jewelry designers demonstrated the endless possibilities available in this technology.

Flexible Screens

From curved 6-inch smartphones to 77-inch (!) TV screens, LG opened our imagination to the many possible screen forms and shapes, and maybe in the future CES flat screens will seem as ancient and primitive as a flat earth. http://bcove.me/8x9lbix2
