If you don’t live and breathe technology like we do, you may be unaware that the annual techfest known as CES is currently drawing to a close.
Allow us to enlighten you.
CES stands for Consumer Electronics Show, which, reading between the lines, means “convention for the next Big Moneymakers” in the world. Innovators and inventors from all around come together to debut their products and shmooze with other geniuses.
Obviously, this is right up our alley here at TechArk, so we’ve been following the unveilings all week. Here are a few of our favorites, and we’re betting they’ll be among the big-ticket items this year.
Game of Life
AR (augmented reality) and VR (virtual reality) are having a big moment right now, and there were a number of headsets and other devices featured at this year’s event. Our favorite example was the Black Box VR, a headset that turns exercise into a video game. With so many innovations in fitness, we’re running out of excuses for spending our weekends on the couch.
L’Oreal UV Sense is an amazing innovation in both wearables and skin health. Monitor your sun exposure, with this nifty gadget that is so small it rests on your fingernail. This device marks a significant leap forwards technologically, and we can’t wait to see what other advances blossom as a result.
Smart cities are the way of the future, but the path to such innovation is paved in gold. Due to the high cost of transforming existing infrastructure into intelligent, digital powerhouses, companies are seeking alternative solutions. One such method is add-ons, which convert traditional utilities into modern data centers, such as the Wi-Fiber Intelli-Platform Integrated Streetlights.
Whether you believe in climate change or not, it’s clear that our planet is a bit less … clean … than it used to be. Enter the Plume’s “Flow,” a clip-on gizmo which samples the surrounding air for quality and pollutants. Monitor the air you and your family breathe, and help build out a community air quality map. While it doesn’t improve the air quality, it is always good to be informed, and aware of the level of contaminants in your home and town.
Congrats to the winners!
Stunnas, each and every one. We couldn’t pick just one favorite, so … here are four. We’re already looking forward to next year!
