We all are aware of CES, The Consumer Electronics Show, which was held this year at Las Vegas from January 6-9. All the great,big companies from all over the world were enthusiastic to present new and yet better innovations of tech products which make them not only cool but comfortable.
While everything presented there was eye catching and cool, here are some of the coolest stuff that have been trending and talked about all over the world.
Judging by CES’ Unmanned Marketplace that was full of drones of all shapes, sizes and capabilities, this category is only getting bigger and better for consumers who want to take to the skies.
The leader in the category, DJI, announced a black version of its Inspire 1 Pro drone and the Phantom 3 4K, which is the same as the older Phantom 3 Professional, but with a shorter video transmission range and at a lower resolution. Parrot announced the Disco, a fixed-wing drone project for consumers that may be out sometime this year with no pricing. Another big name, 3D Robotics, announced an update to its Solo drone that will allow it to do a couple new computer-assisted camera moves called Smart Shots.
4. OLED GADGETS
Be it laptops or televisions, they were all OLED this year. OLED stands for Organic LED. The OLED display is based an organic substance used as the semiconductor material in light-emitting diodes (LEDs).
The days when you just got a couple of new OLED TV series per year are well and truly over – and LG’s new-found ability to expand and experiment with its OLED offering looks set to take us to some exciting places.
If you want to see just how mature – and seemingly secure – LG’s OLED business has now become, check out the brand’s new ‘Signature’ G6 TV range.
2016 is being touted as “The Year of Virtual Reality,” but many – mostly those who have yet to try it out – still doubt whether products like the $600 Oculus Rift have the mainstream appeal to truly take off.
But judging from the towering Oculus booth at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the Oculus Rift is more popular than ever, and its floor space at the biggest tech conference of the year reflects that.
2. AMAZON ALEXA
Amazon Echo’s Alexa plays a starring role (and she’s not even there!!)
1. SAMSUNG GADGETS
Samsung, this year, was the shows topper. It came up with sumptuous gadgets that make life easier and opulent. Here are a few of the best products presented by samsung:
Smart refrigerators got smarter
The Samsung Family Hub fridge has a giant touchscreen built into one of its doors, complete with an app you can use to order groceries online. A line of cameras on the inside will send a picture to your phone when you’re out shopping. An app on the fridge for Samsung’s SmartThings smart home service will let you control your lights, your thermostat, and other connected products right from your refrigerator door.
Belts become your guides
The new creations shown at CES included the Samsung WELT, or Wellness Belt. The WELT communicates with your phone to tell you how many steps you’ve taken, how long you’ve been sitting, eating habits and your waistline size. It then sends the data to a specially-designed app for analysis, to tell you things like — if you keep eating like you did today, you’re going to gain 2 pounds this month. Samsung expects the WELT to go on sale this year.
Smart suit up!
And there’s smart clothing. Samsung showed off its Smart Suit that has already gone on sale in Korea for about $500. The Smart Suit has NFC in the wrist to do things like unlock your phone when you take it out of your pocket or let you exchange business cards digitally. You can also set different modes on your phone, like Office Mode and Drive Mode.
Charge phones right inside your bag
Another new Samsung creation shown at CES was the Sol Bag. This purse contains solar panels on the side to let you charge your Galaxy smartphone in about four hours. It can’t store sun power, though, so charging only occurs when you’re in light. Samsung expects its bag to go on sale this year.
