At the start of every year, a group of innovators from across the globe gathers to showcase their breakthrough technologies at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Typically held in January in the United States, this event provides a glimpse into the future and the potential technologies that may make their way into our homes, offices, living rooms, and kitchens.
This year’s CES featured over 3,200 exhibitors from 173 countries, displaying practical and outlandish inventions aimed at pushing the boundaries and expanding the uses of technology. With people’s love for gadgets, witnessing the new tech that CES highlights is always exciting. Furthermore, as per estimates, the worldwide smart home household penetration reached 14.2% in 2022 and is anticipated to more than double to 28.8% by 2027.
If you’re curious about the new gadgets showcased by innovators at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, here’s a rundown of some standout products you may want to explore.
Loona – The Intelligent Pet Robot
Do you love the idea of having a pet but dislike the mess? Are you unable to have a pet due to your living situation? Loona might be the perfect solution for you. The developers promote this smart gadget as “the most intelligent pet robot” and seek funding through a Kickstarter campaign.
Loona is a cute and small motorized pet that can greet you and follow you around while mimicking behaviours like sneezing, scratching, and investigating suspicious objects, just like a dog or cat. However, unlike most pets, Loona can beatbox, pose for pictures, and dance.
Ring Car Cam
One of the consumer IoT devices showcased at CES is already available on Amazon. The Ring Car Cam takes the popular concept of the doorbell camera on the road with you.
This small internet-connected video camera has dual-facing cameras, allowing it to capture images both inside the car and on the road. Additionally, it comes equipped with two-way talk, allowing drivers to connect with their loved ones at home. The device also features motion detection and real-time motion alerts.
AtmosGear Electronic Skates
AtmosGear introduced a pair of electric inline roller skates at CES for those feeling adventurous. The company expects to start shipping these skates in May 2023.
The skates can reach up to 25 km/h (15.5 mph) and be fully charged in about an hour. These motorized frames can be attached to any roller boots, turning them into electronic skates.
Tilt Five Augmented Reality Glasses
Your chance may have arrived if you’ve been waiting for an opportunity to use augmented reality (AR) beyond video games. Tilt Five introduced an AR glasses system that can be used with both board and video games and connects to a computer device.
With this system, you can bring holographic elements to your tabletop games. The system includes a pair of glasses and a board game. The glasses resemble heavy-duty safety glasses, and they interact with the board game to bring AR elements into the real world.
Jabra Enhance™ Plus
Jabra Enhance Plus is an earbud and hearing aid combo that can benefit individuals with hearing loss. These earbuds offer a 3-in-1 experience that allows users to listen to music, make phone calls, and enhance their hearing.
Their small and discrete design makes them easy to use, and they come equipped with state-of-the-art technology that provides superior audio clarity.
Hasbro Selfie Series Figures
Have you ever wanted to have your action figure modelled after yourself? Hasbro has recently launched its new Selfie Series that allows you to do just that. Using your phone’s camera, you can upload a picture and choose from various figures based on franchises such as G.I. Joe, Ghostbusters, Power Rangers, Marvel, and Star Wars.
With the help of Hasbro’s app, you can customize your new digitized figure and make it unique. Once you have created your ideal figure, you can purchase it and wait for it to arrive.
Twinkly Squares are the grown-up version of the classic Lite-Brite toy. They come in panels of coloured and automated lights that you can attach to any wall. They’re perfect for adding colour to any space or livening up a home office.
Since these are internet-of-things (IoT) devices, you can program and control them. Create digital art, sync them with music, or use their voice-activated feature for hands-free control.
Xebec Tri-Screen 2
If you require more screen real estate for your laptop, Xebec Tri-Screen 2 might be the perfect solution. This innovative gadget allows you to extend your laptop screen on both sides, eliminating the need for an additional monitor that might be inconveniently placed.
The device attaches to the back of your laptop’s screen and adds two extra screens that can be adjusted to different angles. This gives you a seamless and immersive triple-screen experience without the hassle of multiple cables and monitors.
