CES 2019 is in full effect, and we spent the weekend attending all the media events, including CES Unveiled.
AI was a massive buzzword being passed around at all the press conferences. We saw automation and smart technology used in some innovative (and ridiculous) ways.
Here are some pics of what’s happening in Las Vegas at the biggest tech event of the year.
I also took the time to film the CES press some more this year.
Italian firm Volta showed us a cat feeder with facial recognition. Each food bowl is assigned to a cat, so it’ll open only when it detects the right cat’s face.
Welt is a smart belt with all the same sensors as other wearables. The technology will monitor posture, gait, and more.
Caralgo brought their line of OBD sensors with a lower profile than Automatic (although not much detail about subscription plans).
One of many innovation award nominees and honorees in attendance at CES Unveiled 2019 in Las Vegas.
Volumic’s 3D printer has an impressive 12 micron resolution. We’re sure to see some interesting tech, but I definitely want to get my hands on one of these.
Waverly Labs showed off their language translation software with support for over a dozen Asian languages, along with many others.
LG is competing with Picobrew with their own home beer-making machine. Flavor packets let you customize your own flavors a little better than the original Picobrew.
Elvie is a surprisingly intuitive smart breast pump that thought of everything both mom and baby need.
This automated Breadbot can shoot out loaves of bread every 6 minutes from scratch. We brought a fresh loaf home to snack on throughout the rest of the event.
Intel was on hand to announce the launch of a bunch of lake-inspired hardware we were already expecting.
Sphero is moving past its ball-shaped robot toys with this smart ring that enables a wide range of motion-activated programming skills.
Codi showed off adorable computer-powered smart toys.
Pundi X was on hand to showcase their Function X blockchain phone (which we’ll discuss in more detail on Crypto Briefing later), and these are the POS devices they originally created.
Forward X self-driving suitcases follow you wherever you go. So long as the airports allow them, these could be fun to own.
Volo Beauty created a wireless, battery-operated hair dryer. The battery is huge and only lasts 15 minutes, but it’s a nice lux beauty gift.
HP brought its new line of laptops, including the Omen gaming and a few others. We’ll get into more details on their offerings later.
Nvidia’s latest graphics card is capable of a lot, but critics wonder if it’s ultimately worth the high price tag.
Face-scanning technology was all over CES Unveiled this year, and we got some hands-on demos with a few brands.
The Remo doorbell camera from Magnus has a downward-facing camera for seeing packages. Having used a Ring camera and a few other doorbell cameras, I’m pretty impressed.
