LAS VEGAS — This is year is the 50th Anniversary of the world’s largest Consumer Electronics Show (CES). They’re expecting >200,000 attendees from 3600 companies who will have >4000 exhibits – spread over millions of square feet & several buildings. The trade show floor at CES 2017 didn’t open until Thursday morning, but we already know a few dozen of the coolest products here that showed new trends. The people who put on CES, have selected many products as worthy of the CES 2017 “Best of Innovations” Award, defined as “a product or technology that scores above the threshold set for a specific category,” says the association. In several categories, including WearAbles & Smart Home, there are multiple winners.
— Augmented Reality [AR] SmartPhone. The brand new Phab Pro 2 SmartPhone from Lenovo brings Google’s Tango “augmented reality” technology to the phone for $499. Think of this future trends as Pokemon Go outside of the gaming world. “Look through the Phab 2 Pro, and you’ll see objects & information overlaid onto the real world.” Examples include visualizing a new table or sofa at a store and how it would look in the home.
—The smart Dog Collar: Link’s AKC collar promises to track where your Dog is, and helps you find him should he get lost. The collar, just out, sells for $149, and there’s a monthly subscription charge as well, starting at $7 a month. The idea of a Smart collar isn’t new — there are many out there – WUF & Squeaker.
— Do-it-yourself Eye Exams. EyeQue looks to bring the eye exam into the home, via a SmartPhone App and a $29.99 optical device that connects to the app. The company is currently raising money for its product by taking pre-orders on a KickStarter campaign that ends today. So far, nearly $120,000 has been raised, far exceeding the initial $25,000 goal.
—AI-poly Vision — Artificial Intelligence that allows mobile phones to recognize thousands of items to assist the blind & visually-impaired with exploring their surroundings.
—Cubit – partners with the user along their entire creative journey, allowing them to get thru mental & physical hurdles, and bring their projects from idea generation to reality.
—Lenovo Yoga Book – The 2-in-1 Tablet that make notes or sketches using a stylus with real ink. Type on the Halo keyboard that appears when you need it – and vanishes when you don’t.
—Goodix Live Fingerprint Scanner – Biometric security that determines your heartbeat signature from your finger.
—Integrated Connectivity Cluster – An all-in-one information & communication system for motorcycles.
—HP Spectre Notebook – is remarkably thin while still managing to fit in Core processors. The keyboard is excellent for such a slim body, and the bold design stands out in a sea of thin ultra-portables. The lack of a Touch-screen is a big omission for a premium Windows laptop, and the limited ports may force you to carry extra accessories.
—K’Track G – A wearable tracker that allows diabetics to measure in real time their blood glucose w/out blood sample.
—Motiv Ring – A smart device to track your activity, heart rate & sleep.
—Obsidian 3D Panoramic Camera – looks to bring VR to a new level.
—Levitating Speaker – Crazybaby’s floating speaker atop a speaker for a new way of listening to music.
—Moto Mods – A tool to turn the Motorola Moto Z SmartPhone into a Projector or Boombox.
—OSSIC X – described as Headphones for “3D listening.”
—Cota Tile – Traditional home ceiling tile that delivers wireless power without plugs and pads.
