  3. 3. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 31-10-2017 Introduction
  4. 4. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 41-10-2017 Introduction It’s that time again: the holidays are over, a fresh year is on the calendar, and it’s time for the annual electronics blow-out of the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. What can you expect to see this year? Well, aside from the usual TVs, automotive technology, drones, and VR spectacles, I have compiled a group of some of the greatest and wackiest set of offerings in this document for you to file under “what the heck happened at CES this year?”. As usual there was a series of unexpected introductions that either amazed or shocked me - that anyone would invest their time, effort and money on creating the product they were promoting. But enough of this – read on to find out what was the best and worst of the show this year.
  5. 5. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 51-10-2017 Trends
  6. 6. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 61-10-2017 Trends TV’s were there TVs are the classic spectacle of CES. It’s a show of big, amazing displays everywhere you look. And in 2017, the theme was again 4K and HDR. The price barrier for entering 4K is pretty much gone, so this is the year that TV makers must sell the content and convince holdouts that Ultra HD is now essential to any modern living room. All the usual big players — Samsung, LG, Sony, and Panasonic — were there with massive booths to showcase their latest, most advanced displays. And countless other companies like Hisense, TCL, LeEco, also where trying to stand out on the show floor. LG was back with its stunning OLED TVs. HDR should become status quo for TVs in 2017 after being something of a standout feature for the last couple years. HDR10 has gained a little more momentum than Dolby Vision, but that split could definitely change depending on who goes with which technology at CES.
  7. 7. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 71-10-2017 Trends SELF DRIVING CARS WERE EVERYWHERE TOO CES, as the joke goes amongst the automotive press, now stands for “Car Electronics Show.” And this year is likely to be no different. What started with a single automaker (Ford) a few years ago, now sees an entire conference hall filled with automakers and suppliers eager to show their latest tech. This year was no different. This year, autonomous vehicles and connected cars stole the show. Self-driving has gone from being one of those things we’ll see someday to a technology that’s actual real. And just like our houses are increasingly connected to the internet, so will our cars. More and more vehicles are equipped with cellular data connections to send information back to the cloud on everything from maintenance issues like low tire warnings to reminders about upcoming service requirements.
  8. 8. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 81-10-2017 Trends RIDEABLES ARE NOT THE STARS ANYMORE Cars like Chevy’s Bolt and Faraday Future’s concept were the showstoppers of CES 2016. But it was the electric hoverboards, scooters, and skateboards that were truly inescapable. Everywhere you turned, there was a booth that featured something with an electric motor and wheels. That said, CES 2016 also highlighted the controversies that these products have been mired in for the better part of the last year. Future Motion, a company that makes a strange-looking electric skateboard called the Onewheel, had another company removed from the show floor by authorities for allegedly copying their designs. Swagway’s announcement of the Swagtron hoverboard was intensely focused on how much work the company put into making sure the thing wouldn’t explode. Those problems plagued the category throughout 2016, and so the boom in popularity of these kinds of gadgets tapered off. They’ll certainly had a presence at CES 2017, but it wasn’t the thing everyone is talking about anymore.
  9. 9. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 91-10-2017 Trends VR WAS WEIRD CES 2016 was the big year of virtual reality hype, held right on the cusp of the first big consumer headset releases. CES 2017 is the aftermath of its promising but slow launch. There was alot of virtual reality on the floor, but it did not seem as glossy or exciting as it did last year. For one thing, Facebook-owned Oculus — which has dominated the show's VR news since it first appeared in 2013 — kept a low profile, with its massive black booth nowhere to be found on this year's show floor. Oculus competitor HTC has a significant VR presence at CES, but it's not clear whether we'll see a substantial update on last year's Vive headset. Peripheral products like the Virtuix Omni treadmill have started to ship, giving companies less reason to come show them off. On the other hand, having the first wave of consumer headsets out the door could mean we'll see more of a focus on experimental features, like inside-out tracking, hand controls, and all-in-one formats. Like last year, there's a big crop of headsets aimed at the Chinese market — a particularly interesting, fast-growing part of the global VR industry. A lot of these products feel more like one-off pieces of hardware than the relatively robust Rift and Vive platforms, but they could also create a larger VR ecosystem in the long term. And big electronics companies like Qualcomm and Intel, both of which are likely to be talking virtual reality at the show, could help lift all boats by building better core components. Augmented reality has been a mainstay at CES for some time now, although it’s mostly industry focused. That did not change this year. And given all the interest last year in products like the Microsoft HoloLens, we could see more of a push to turn from purely professional products to ones with more mass-consumer appeal — even if they won’t actually come to market for years.
  10. 10. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 101-10-2017 Trends EVERY DRONE MAKER IS CHASING DJI Drones get weird and wild at this year’s CES too. The market leader, DJI, is so far ahead of the competition, that introducing a straight ahead camera drone is a pretty foolhardy venture. But there is plenty of room in the market for new shapes, sizes, and capabilities. Expect drones that optimized for flying indoors, for high-speed racing, and even for diving underwater (see the red one to the right). There will also be hordes of drones that mimic the look and feature set of DJI’s Phantom drones, but at lower price points, and with bells and whistles throw in to make them seem cutting edge. Finally, drones will be almost certainly be buzzing onstage and around the show as entertainment, a robotic crowd-pleaser that never fails to lend a futuristic edge to the CES madness. Look for Intel to push its new Aero line of drones and compute boards that have been lighting up the skies at Disney World.
  11. 11. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 111-10-2017 Trends WIRELESS AUDIO REIGNED SUPREME Wireless. That single word is all you need to know about the massive deluge of headphones and speakers that arrived at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Wireless headphones are, of course, not a new phenomenon, but 2016 has been a year that’s really accelerated their proliferation into the market. A positive reception for wireless models already on sale and Apple’s decision to pull the cord on the traditional headphone jack in its latest iPhone generation have combined to drive demand for more. Tens of millions of iOS devices are now being sold every month without a regular 3.5mm connector, which vastly expands the opportunities for any aspiring sellers of wireless portable cans. The previous CES had a bit of mystery about it, as Lightning headphones were an intriguing alternative proposition, but Apple’s efforts to push wireless tech forward and the overall headphone industry’s reaction both point toward wireless cans being essentially the standard for 2017. Other categories like gaming and audiophile-grade headphones — as exhibited by the Bowers & Wilkins P7 Wireless in December — are likely to also see new wireless choices to pick from. And as to speakers, any manufacturer that wants to sell speakers that aren’t wireless will probably need a strong justification for it. That’s the cable-phobic world we’re now living in.
  12. 12. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 121-10-2017 Trends CAMERAS ARE BUILT INTO EVERYTHING Photokina is the camera industry’s biggest show, and it only happens once every other year. So when it happens, it tends to suck up all the fun news. This past September we watched Fujifilm announce the absolutely ludicrous GFX medium format camera, Canon introduce the M5, Sony update its pro DSLR line with the A99 II, and SanDisk unveil a 1TB SD card. So while all the major camera players are likely to have some sort of presence at CES, don’t hold your breath for a ton of fantastic announcements. Instead, we’ll probably see announcements focused around these companies’ low to midrange camera lineups. We might get more details on cameras like the Panasonic GH5, which was announced at Photokina with few details on specs or price. And there were camcorders. Dozens and dozens of camcorders. Of course, the camera rumor mill is as hot as ever these days, so there always could be some surprises in store. Canon is reportedly working on a full-frame mirrorless camera that might even take the place of the 6D Mark II. Fujifilm is said to be nearing the release of new X100 and X-T line cameras. And besides, cameras are in everything these days. Drones, smartphones, toys — you name it, and there’s probably a version of it with a built-in camera. So maybe CES 2017 is a good time and place to start wrapping our minds around what that means. Because there’s a good chance that there won’t be much else to talk about.
  13. 13. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 131-10-2017 Trends WEARABLES TRY TO GO BEYOND THE WRIST 2016 was not a great year for wearable's, with manufacturers ditching Android Wear, Fitbit predicting a crummy holiday quarter, Jawbone stopping production of UP, and Pebble selling off its assets. Apple claims the Apple Watch is doing well, but if that’s true, it may be the one bright spot in a category that seems to have stalled in terms of real innovation. So the expectations for wearable's at CES 2017 were not exactly high — but that doesn’t mean wearable makers didn’t give it their best try. A lot were health-focused beyond basic step-counting and heart rate tracking, but since many of them aren’t FDA approved, that also means a fair amount of bogus claims were made. There will be wireless patches that claim to “taste” your skin to analyze physiological markers, wristbands that are supposed to curb nausea while you’re wearing a VR headset (a wearable to cure the ails of wearables), and smartwatches that are supposedly powered by body heat. And there’s always room at CES for stuff that doesn’t exactly go on the body but is related to it, like a “smart” spoon that will analyze tremors.
  14. 14. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 141-10-2017 Trends GADGETS WON’T BE DEAD, THEY’LL BE EVERYWHERE Almost everything at CES is a gadget, so obviously I expect to see a lot of those. But there are a couple trends especially exciting for from a Circuit Breaker perspective. First off, there's the USB-C-ification of everything. 2016 was the year where USB-C became basically mandatory on new laptops and flagship phones. And a new plug means endless new gadget opportunities. Hubs, docks, adapters, drives, headphones, and chargers are just the first wave. Monitors that can charge your laptop, act as a USB hub, and get a video signal all over the same plug will be one of USB-C's first big payoffs. External graphics cards that run over Thunderbolt 3 were on display. Really, anything that can benefit from higher data throughput, higher power draw, or a smaller plug, can (and will) be enhanced by USB-C or Thunderbolt 3. But it's not all roses. USB-C is an extremely complicated and frequently misapplied spec. The other Circuit Breaker trend was tracking is Kickstarter gadgets. Backing a Kickstarter is always a little scary: you're putting up money for something that might still be just a prototype. Even if it does ship, is it any good? CES was a chance to see a lot of these Kickstarter gadgets in the flesh and see if they're just hype.
  15. 15. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 151-10-2017 Product Introductions
  16. 16. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 161-10-2017 Product Introductions Imolator GO - 3 wheeled scooter Many companies are trying to assist public find fresh ways to get around in cities and in other dense areas. Immolator certainly wants its 27-pound, three- wheel Go scooter to be part of that conversation. But founder Daniel Huang, who made his name starting battery-case giant Mophie, is mostly focused on the power within. More than the foldable design or the security features, Huang says the Go’s ‘Super Battery’ is the future. It’s modular, it’s safe from explosions, and it will one day power all kinds of new gadgets from Immotor.
  17. 17. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 171-10-2017 Product Introductions 2TB DataTraveler Ultimate GT by Kingston As the cloud storage reigns, the USB Flash drive is now becoming less important into people's lives nowadays. Flash drive can be very useful as it can empower to store people's data locally without needing to use the internet connection to access things like the movies, photos, etc. Now, Kingston has developed a new and very useful 2TB (Terabyte) flash drive and people can carry around their entire digital life, right in their pocket. That is right, just recently, the Kingston announces another a whole new flash drive device that will make people get excited again about the flash drive. After Kingston debuted the 1 TB Data Traveler HyperX Predator USB 3.0 last year, Kingston upgraded with the new Data Traveler Ultimate Generation Terabyte. Kingston created and will soon unleash a 2 TB pocket flash drive.
  18. 18. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 181-10-2017 Product Introductions Toyota Concept-i is like Siri on wheels, but better Concept-i, Toyota's conceptual debut at CES 2017, envisions a future where we form relationships with our self-driving cars -- a future where our interactions aren't limited to a touchscreen in the dashboard, but through communicating with an integrated artificial intelligence that predicts and meets the passengers' needs. Concept-i is a compact autonomous car with a swoopy and organic design. However, the most interesting -- and difficult to explain -- bit is the interior. The cabin is pretty much devoid of traditional black touchscreen displays. This touchy-feely relationship with technology continues outside of the cabin, which allows Yui to greet the approaching driver through exterior displays and an opening of the vertically hinged doors. The exterior also features dynamic graphics that inform pedestrians whether the Concept-i is its in autonomous or human-piloted modes and can share visual information about the road ahead through graphics on the vehicle's rear.
  19. 19. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 191-10-2017 Product Introductions C by GE Lamp In 2015, Amazon made the world of manufacturing an offer. Make a device with a microphone, a speaker, and an internet connection, they said, and we'll let you add in our virtual assistant Alexa, free of charge. Now, GE is taking them up on it. The device in question looks a lot like something that came out of Dyson's R&D department, but it's really just an internet-connected desk lamp. Plug it in and pair it with your phone via Wi-Fi, and you'll be able to control it alongside the C by GE smart bulbs in GE's smart lighting app. And, thanks to the addition of a microphone and speaker in the base, you'll be able to use it to talk to Alexa, too. In essence, that makes this thing an Amazon Echo with a lamp growing out of its head (though given the size of the speaker, the sound quality might be closer to the pint-size Amazon Echo Dot). GE says you'll be able to use it just as you'd use an Echo -- just say the wake word, "Alexa," followed by a question or a command. No button press needed. As with other Alexa products, you'll be able to ask it to wake you up in the morning, read off the day's news or weather forecast, tell you a joke, play a podcast from iHeartRadio, or stream some music from Pandora, Spotify or Amazon. You can also ask it to control any Alexa-compatible smart-home devices you might own (including the lamp itself, obviously), or enable any of Alexa's thousands of third-party "skills" -- essentially voice apps that teach Alexa new tricks. For now, GE's just calling it the C by GE Lamp, though I'd challenge them to do better given the fact that it's such a unique-looking product. Preorders are expected to start in early 2017, with devices set to arrive on the C by GE website and on Amazon in the second quarter of the year. Pricing isn't set yet, but a GE spokesperson tells me that they expect the lamp to cost less than the Amazon Echo, which sells for $180 in the US and £150 in the UK (that's about AU$240, converted roughly -- though Alexa isn't available in Australia yet). GE also tells me that the lamp will make its start in the US, as the Echo did, though it wouldn't rule out the possibility of expanding to other countries where Alexa is available, as well.
  20. 20. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 201-10-2017 Product Introductions Kuri Probably the most talked-about robot at CES 2017 was Kuri, a 20-inch-tall rolling bot that might win this year's award for most adorable. It has more mobility than most robots being showcased this year. Created by Mayfield Robotics, Kuri can follow you around, taking video, telling stories, monitoring the home and greeting guests. It also has more personality than many others. Mayfield worked closely with Pixar to get the motions and sounds right. While it's still available only for pre-order, Kuri will retail for $700 and be available for the 2017 holiday season.
  21. 21. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 211-10-2017 Product Introductions Kerastase Hair Coach I have written about connected frying pans, makeup mirrors that work with Amazon Alexa and app-enabled food composters, but smart hair care products are an entirely new frontier. Today we explore that uncharted territory with the Kerastase Hair Coach Powered by Withings. Yes, the Hair Coach is essentially just a brush, but this version was dreamed up by the L'Oreal-owned hair care brand Kerastase in partnership with smart home company Withings. That means you can expect this quirky device to do a bit more than your typical hairbrush. Just what you've always wanted right? For brushing your luscious locks, try a smart hairbrush. The Kerastase Hair Coach has a microphone, an accelerometer, gyroscope and conductivity sensors.
  22. 22. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 221-10-2017 Product Introductions Smart Assistant Amazon's Echo is the current standard for smart home assistants -- with some new competition from Google Home, of course -- thanks to its ease of use and surprisingly good voice-controlled personality, named Alexa. But while the Echo (and the Echo Dot and Tap) are Amazon-made products, Alexa herself is slipping the bonds of corporate exclusivity and turning up in a handful of other products. We've already seen the Triby smart radio: Now Lenovo has the Smart Assistant. It's not a very catchy name, but one look will tell you this is clearly modeled on the Echo. It's a tall cylindrical device, but with a warmer design than Amazon's severe speaker. The top half is white, with a silver 360-degree microphone- speaker combo on top. The bottom half feels more like the Google Home device, with a gray, green or orange woven overlay for a splash of color. Inside is an Intel Celeron N3060 processor, and one 5-watt tweeter and one 10-watt woofer for audio. It looks like an Echo, it uses Alexa, it uses the official Alexa phone app, and works with the same wide range of third-party smart home devices. So, design aside, what exactly is the difference between the Lenovo Smart Assistant and an Echo? Lenovo says it's the one area the Echo is often criticized for coming up short -- sound. There's a standard model Smart Assistant, and for $50 more, there's a special Harman Kardon edition with premium audio.
  23. 23. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 231-10-2017 Product Introductions Aristotle It's a baby monitor. It's a voice-activated smart assistant. It answers your questions, and maybe your kids' questions, too. It orders more diapers when you run out and soothes babies back to sleep automatically. It plays with your kids. It could be the most exciting thing toymaker Mattel has ever produced. It's called the Aristotle, and it's not just an Amazon Echo clone: According to interviews with Bloomberg, FastCo Design and USA Today, the device is a fully functioning Amazon Alexa assistant that can answer all the same adult questions and has all the same smart home capabilities -- but say "Aristotle" instead of "Alexa," and it can also summon a different voice assistant that can interact with your kids. The voice-activated speaker also comes with a wireless camera that streams 256-bit encrypted video to your phone, an array of colorful LEDs and special software, some of which -- as a new parent myself -- sounds too good to be true.
  24. 24. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 241-10-2017 Product Introductions Chrysler Portal Tuesday at CES 2017 Chrysler officially revealed its latest concept car, the Portal. The electric car has a shoebox shape and features sliding side doors, an almost all-glass roof and has eight docking stations. The Chrysler Portal, which is “designed by millennials for millennials,” can travel up to 250 miles on a single charge. One of the more notable design elements when you first see the car are its doors and that is intentional. For Matt Dunford, exterior designer of the Chrysler Portal, the doors are everything and the first thing a passenger experience with a car. Surrounding the door is a light, or portal, that changes color and is designed to be customizable and be a communication tool. “The Chrysler Portal concept is backed by significant research on the millennial generation. Millennials have clearly defined that they want a vehicle that will grow with them as they experience life changes,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands at FCA, in a statement.
  25. 25. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 251-10-2017 Product Introductions PowerRay Technology is developing day by day, as of we know DRONES are very popular now a days. it is very helpful for aireal photography, monitoring, search and rescue, inspections, security, etc. Now one company has step forward and created a drone which is not flying in air, of coarse they had introduced a drone which goes into the sea. Robotics company PowerVision grabbed headlines last year with its Power Egg, which, true to its name is a quadcopter shaped like an egg. Its latest robot doesn't fly, though: It swims. This underwater drone can submerge up to 98 feet (30 meters) and records 4K video streamed to your phone, which you use to navigate using an app on any iOS or Android mobile device via Wi-Fi (presumably with the help of a floating antenna). The app lets you control the robot and its camera and gives you position information and other data to help you find fish.with its add-on Fishfinder sonar it can detect fish up to 131 feet (40 meters) away and and lures them with a blue light.
  26. 26. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 261-10-2017 Product Introductions FlexWash and FlexDry This Samsung washer and dryer pair has a secret -- small top-load compartments to tackle delicate items. Let's face it, laundry day just isn't fun. Fortunately, large appliance manufacturers have been hard at work in 2016 dreaming up new ways to to simplify this otherwise arduous task. We've seen sinks built-into top-load washing machines, front-load trap doors that open midcycle so you can add the lone sock you missed earlier (see video below), and smaller, secondary washers hidden in what looks like a lowly storage pedestal. But Samsung's FlexWash + FlexDry Laundry System, announced today, might be the wackiest innovation we've seen yet. It's a side-by-side front-load washer and dryer pair, but both units have a smaller washer or dryer incorporated into the top of the machine, top-load-style.
  27. 27. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 271-10-2017 Product Introductions Rapael Smart Glove At first glance the Rapael smart glove looks like one of the robot skeletons from the television show "Westworld." Created by the South Korean company Neofect, the glove uses a variety of sensors to guide a patient's rehabilitation for common hand and wrist injuries. The Rapael with its nine-axis movement sensor, bending sensors and 32-bit microcontrollers is more advanced in nearly every way. But the Rapael, as the Power Glove did, radiates a spirit of fun and gameplay. In fact, gamified exercises are essential to how the glove works. A patient wears the wireless glove on their injured hand and wrist. The glove connects to the Rapael app which guides the user through repetitive movements to engage specific muscles and tendons. For example, I was shown a game where the user has to chop a vegetables using repetitive radial wrist movements. Another game, has the user throwing darts which emphasizes the flexing of the fingers. Neofect developed the app's games from actual physical therapy games/exercises.
  28. 28. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 281-10-2017 Product Introductions BMW Inside Future Concept At CES, BMW unveiled what it calls the Inside Future sculpture, a concept of what the cabins of its cars might look like in the future. BMW calls the Inside Future concept, unveiled at CES 2017, a sculpture. Unlike a traditional concept car, it only hints at exterior elements such as wheels hood, and the window openings lack glass. BMW shows off what future car cabins might look like when self-driving becomes possible. The cabin contains four comfortable-looking, wide seats covered in a beige cloth, even adorned with a throw pillow in the second row. Rather than the bulky seats of modern cars, the Inside Future's seats use a slim design. The light colors and slim seats lend to the cabin's airy and open look. A steering wheel remains ready for the driver to take control, as BMW imagines that its future self-driving cars will offer both automated and manual modes, called Ease and Boost in BMW parlance. Rear seat passengers get tablet-style touchscreens mounted on armrests, while a long LCD stretches across the dashboard.
  29. 29. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 291-10-2017 Product Introductions Acer Predator 21 X CES has already delivered a large selection of laptops in all shapes and, well, sizes. If you have money to burn and a lap strong enough to support it, the Acer Predator 21X is a beast of a gaming machine that weighs 17 pounds and has a 21-inch screen. The rest of the specs, like five system fans, are just as ridiculous.
  30. 30. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 301-10-2017 Product Introductions AirTV Is this designed to appeal to the very old or the very young? After leaking it in mid-December, Dish Network today officially launched its new AirTV brand with a streaming box and optional over-the-air (OTA) dongle that are "optimized for Sling," the company's other service for streaming everything except OTA TV. Dish's Android-powered AirTV Player box adds 4K live TV streaming capabilities with a built-in antenna for your free TV viewing, rather than necessitating partnerships with traditional over-the-air broadcasters to stream the limited live content they agree to. It also supports all the other Sling TV streaming options -- you get a $50 credit toward Sling when you buy the Player -- but it won't require a subscription unless you want to sign up for services other than OTA. The Player box (for streaming) costs $100 including remote, the OTA USB adapter is $40, and if you buy them together you save $10 at $130. They're all available right this very minute. AirTV is also offering an installation service for folks who don't already have an antenna or who want optimal positioning ($100 indoors, $150 outdoors), though it's only available in a limited number of regions at the moment. AirTV Player comes preloaded with apps for Netflix, Sling TV, YouTube and the Google Play store -- relevant subscriptions will still cost extra of course -- and it unifies the experience in the Sling TV online channel guide. It supports 2.4 and 5GHz Wi-Fi. The Bluetooth remote incorporates voice as well, and has dedicated buttons for Netflix and YouTube.
  31. 31. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 311-10-2017 Product Introductions VR7000 Robot Vacuum Samsung says its VR7000 robot vacuum is 28 percent smaller than previous models. Samsung introduced a new robot vacuum to its floor- cleaning lineup, the Powerbot VR7000. With a slimmer design than previous Powerbots, this lithuim-ion-fueled bot should be able to pass under chairs and beds that might have been too low for its predecessors. Samsung seems to have made some significant improvements with its VR7000. In addition to being 28 percent shorter than older Powerbot models, the VR7000 also claims strong 20W suction and an Edge Clean Master feature that promises to clean closer to walls.
  32. 32. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 321-10-2017 Product Introductions Olly There are smart home hubs and there are smart home robots, but where does the dividing line fall? The key is a combination of personality, movement and interaction, according to Hongbin Zhuang, the London- based founder of social robot Olly. Pointing to two Olly robots sitting side by side in Emotech's booth at CES Unveiled, Zhuang explains that where one Olly is whizzing around energetically responding to anyone and everyone who engages with it, its neighbor is more calm and reserved -- it only speaks when spoken to. This is the result of the robot's deep-learning capabilities that mean as your Olly gets to know you and your daily routines over time, it will evolve to become more like you and respond to the patterns of your life. When it comes to what the robot can actually do, it is similar to Amazon's Echo or Google Home. It can respond to your questions by looking up information for you, and can control all of your smart devices and internet-connected products you may have around your home. Where it differs from its rivals is in its ability to be proactive. It could predict whether you might want to listen to music when you get home from work for example, as well as what you might like that music to be. The original prototype of Emotech's robot featured a single eye, but testing suggested that while some users loved this feature, others did not. Now, Olly is a black donut that rises to greet you when you wake it and swivels to face you when you address it. It responds not just with voice, but with mesmeric light patterns that help it express itself.
  33. 33. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 331-10-2017 Product Introductions Griffin Technology Smart Appliances You can forget smart fridges that will set you back thousands of dollars, because there's now a more affordable way to start getting your kitchen connected. Mobile accessories company Griffin Technology today announced its move into "AppPowered" appliances with its new home range. Unveiling a smart toaster, a connected coffee maker and even a futuristic WiFi mirror, its new smart appliances aim to make your life easier on the cheap, thanks to mobile integration. Claiming to help you "toast smarter," the new Bluetooth-enabled toaster lets users adjust temperature and create presets for different bread types from their smartphone, even allowing them to choose how dark they want their toast.

  34. 34. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 341-10-2017 Product Introductions FF 91 Faraday Future announced its intentions to build an all-new electric vehicle at CES 2016 in Las Vegas, where it brought a Batmobile-like concept race car. That was cool, but unrealistic. (You can listen to So Faraday learned its lesson for CES 2017: It brought the beta version of its prototype vehicle, the FF 91. The all-electric vehicle will be connected and autonomous, according to the company. Its “open ecosystem” will work with any platform, with two WiFi antennas and multiple LTE modems onboard. The key – literally – is FFID, a profile that drivers and passengers set up with the company. The vehicle has facial recognition technology that unlocks the doors for you when you approach and sets your preferences, from seat position to streaming music. “The integrity of data, personal information and safety are our top priorities,” said Hong Bae, Faraday’s director of advanced driver assistance systems and self-driving, from the stage on Jan. 3. Bae also introduced the FF 91’s retractable lidar puck mounted in the hood, one of at least 36 sensors on the vehicle. When the lidar is active and the vehicle is driving autonomously, it lights up to let those inside and outside the vehicle know that this crossover-style vehicle is driving on its own. That led to one of the more impressive live demonstrations: driverless valet parking. The prototype was set in motion in the parking lot outside the Las Vegas venue to find a spot on its own. It overshot an empty space, making for a tense moment. But the FF 91 was “feeling fancy,” Bae said, as it executed a very careful three-point turn and backed into the space. “Touchdown!” Bae said. (The onstage parking demo at CES, however, didn’t go so well, as the car refused to budge.)
  35. 35. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 351-10-2017 Product Introductions Ariana Projector Have you ever started up Call of Duty on your PC and thought “I really wish this game could be somehow projected over every surface in front of me, while I was still playing it on a monitor, being watched by an unblinking mechanical eye”? If so, gaming company Razer is here to fulfill your oddly specific desires. Project Ariana is a prototype video projector meant to provide ambience through Razer’s Chroma system, which also powers those color-shifting lights in Razer’s keyboards and mice. It’s a concept with no price or release date. Razer confirmed that Project Ariana can be used as an ordinary 4K projector, but that’s not its primary purpose. Instead, it’s supposed to give the impression of extending your monitor across an entire room. It uses a 155-degree fisheye lens and two depth-sensing cameras, which let Ariana detect things like furniture and tweak the image to avoid distortion. If you don’t want to see Overwatch on your wall, there’s also an ambient mode that projects colors instead.
  36. 36. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 361-10-2017 Product Introductions Willow Smart Breast Pump Breast pumps are large, loud and often painful. The devices women use today require them to stop what they're doing every few hours in order to pump. Willow, the first smart wearable breast pump, wants to change that. The Silicon Valley company launched its hands-free breast pumps at CES 2017 this week. The pair of teardrop-shaped devices fits in a woman's bra and silently pumps -- no awkward tubes required. Inside each pump is a collection bag that holds up to four ounces of milk. The three-piece system is dishwasher safe, and the batteries last for a couple days on a single charge.
  37. 37. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 371-10-2017 Product Introductions AirBar AirBar gives your MacBook Air a touchscreen for $99. The USB accessory sits below the display and is held in place with magnets. Sure, the new MacBook Pro has that fancy Touch Bar, but some Apple laptop owners long for a machine with a full touchscreen display. A company called AirBar already gave the PC faithful a USB accessory that gives a 15.6-inch screen a more tactile function, and at CES it's doing the same for the 13.3-inch MacBook Air. The company calls the device "plug- and-touch," which means you don't have to worry about futzing with drivers before you can use the gadget. The installation process involves putting a couple magnets on the laptop to hold the AirBar in place. Once that's done, all you have to do it plug it into a USB port, and the device emits a light field over the display to pick up you touch navigation, pinch-to-zoom and scrolling gestures. Of course, you'll have to remove it to completely close your laptop, but the addition of touch with a relatively painless install makes a solid case for the add-on. I tried the AirBar on a MacBook Air here at CES and it performed well navigating around Google Maps and Paintbrush on OS X. Unfortunately, the unit on display is a working prototype so I wasn't able to test zoom and scrolling functionality. The company says you can also use a physical object to handle input -- something like a stylus or even a paintbrush. Right now, there's only the one size for one Apple laptop, but the plan is to expand the line with more sizes that accommodate more computers. If you're looking to outfit your 13-inch MacBook Air with an AirBar, you'll be able to do so in March. The accessory will be available on Amazon at that time for $99 -- a $30 premium over the existing PC version.
  38. 38. 2017 CES – Trends and Introductions 381-10-2017 Product Introductions Ioniq Scooter The scooter also features front and rear lights to enhance safety when scooting at night and an LCD readout on the handlebars with information about range. Hyundai’s electric scooter concept is so compact that it fits in a car’s door. Called the Ioniq Scooter, the two-wheeler is so compact when it’s fully folded that it can fit in the driver’s door of the Ioniq, Hyundai’s new Prius-fighting model. The company says storing it in the door is a more user-friendly solution than keeping it in the trunk. The door panel is fitted with a special charging port so users can top up the Ioniq Scooter’s battery pack just like they charge their phone when on the go. Hyundai stresses that carrying the scooter around isn’t a burden due to its low weight, and says unfolding it is a quick and relatively simple task that can be accomplished with just one hand. The concept is operated via a thumb switch located on the right handlebar. Scrolling it up speeds up the tiny electric motor and scrolling it down applies the brakes. Alternatively, the driver can brake by pushing down on a pad located over the rear wheel.
