At CES the most talked about Tech was not even on display
Each January we see nearly thousands attendees flock to Las Vegas for CES, perhaps the world's largest tech event that can overwhelm one with the various tech gadgets and products on display. One can expect the televisions to be thinner & bigger, appliances to be smarter and personal computer to have become faster.
Well, this year also in the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show, the exhibitors did not disappoint.
In all these categories, the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show's four thousand exhibitors did not disappoint.
With 70- and 80- inch HDTVs so 2017, the largest screen display was a new modular 146 - video wall that is perfect for any home with a blank nine-foot wide wall. Don't have a lot of space? No problem, another concept on display was a 65-inch OLED television that rolls up like a newspaper. (Remember those?) Still cramped for space? More than a dozen vendors showcased virtual reality headsets that can transform any room into a multi-sensory, immersive theater-like experience.
Not to be outdone by the living room's televisions, standard home appliances such as refrigerators, washing machines, and wall ovens got together and starting talking to each other. Smart homes, powered by an ever-growing assortment of the Internet of things (IoT) consumer devices, can now be controlled by voice commands. New products enable your mixer to tell you when you've put the right amount of flour into the bowl and let your oven know when to start preheating for your soon-to-be- ready cake batter. No time for a cake? Just let your oven scan the barcode on your frozen pizza's box, and it will take care of the rest (while letting the refrigerator know to order another one).
You'll never feel alone at home again, as voice interactive virtual assistant bots debuted at CES on dishwashers, alarm clocks, bathroom mirrors, security cameras and even augmented reality smart glasses to which you can talk.
This year, the biggest trend in consumer electronics that you couldn't see walking the convention center floor is voice. Just a mere seven years after the implementation of voice on smart phones launched, the world of consumer electronics is abuzz with voice command products for every room of the house. Voice recognition is the most intuitive of machine-human interfaces and one of the most reliable. Recent studies show that artificial intelligence voice recognition systems now exceed humans in accuracy for transcription.
Some of the world's biggest automakers showcased their autonomous & semi-autonomous vehicles as well as a self-driving taxi van service. Similar to consumer electronics companies, auto manufacturers have now begun to embed voice controlled software on their cars. Your new car will now be able to with the wall oven to make sure when you get home, your pizza is piping hot. Given the array of products on display at CES this year, the year ahead promises to be very exciting.
