THE STORM REPORT @ CES 2019
CES® is the world's gathering place for all those who thrive on the business of consumer technologies
and it has served as the proving ground for innovators and breakthrough technologies for 50 years —
the global stage where next-generation innovations are introduced to the marketplace.
Each year, memBrain attends CES® to gather intelligence on hot new products and to identify emerging
trends and industries. This special edition of The STORM Report is a compilation of memBrain’s
observations from the CES® show floor combined with the most “buzzed about” products according to
leading industry publications, including the CES® 2019 Innovation Award winners.
For the past several years, memBrain has hosted a curated breakfast panel session featuring an
interactive discussion related to the year’s most buzzed about topics at CES. This year, memBrain
collaborated with the newly formed Wunderman Thompson to co-present our third annual breakfast
event. We welcomed ~200 guests from a wide range of industries with speakers from Intel, WPP,
Qualcomm and more answering the question “Are You Future Ready?”

INTRODUCTION
CES 2019 was slightly larger than last year, with more than 4,500 exhibitors sprawled across 2.7 million square feet.
However, now that the conference is over and we reflect on everything that we experienced and the key trends and
breakthroughs, it seems to be the consensus that CES 2019 was not a year for anything particularly “new.”
In fact, most of the trends that we identified as “hot” were simply building on announcements made at CES 2017
and/or 2018 - intelligent virtual assistants, 5G, and connected cars. Of course, there were some glimmers of things
to come in 2020 - namely, emerging opportunities thanks largely to 5G accessibility, human health and abilities
enhanced by technology, and even feel good robot friends to offer us comfort in troubling times. Vehicles were
probably the most exciting category at CES 2019, with many attendees and exhibitors noting that Vegas essentially
served as a preview for the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
Still, people love CES more than ever. At 33% positive mentions (according to Buzz Radar), 2019 had the highest
ever positive mentions - up a whopping 9% from 2017 and 4% from 2018. Included in this report are some of the
hottest trends that we spotted on the show floor and in our conversations with attendees and exhibitors. We have
also included an at-a-glance look at some of the most “buzz-worthy” products, and why we believe they are
worthy of your radar.

HOTTEST
TRENDS 5© 2019 memBrain LLC. Not to be copied or disseminated without prior written approval by memBrain LLC.
BECOMING BIONIC
SAMSUNG
GEMS
People talk about technology in terms of what we can do with it. But, what
about what it can do for us? How can it expand our physical limits? The
future of human ability was another major trend at CES 2019, and perhaps
one of the only notable trends that seemed to have grown over the past
year.
There is a strong belief in the bionics community that future human
mobility and developing medical devices will eventually come to a point
where the advanced products will be accepted by the end user as part of
their body, similar to the way the smart phone is accepted as an extension
of our hands, so-to-speak.
Just as Samsung is designing robots that provide health and wellness
support, the company has also invested in mobility and wearable
enhancements for the human body. The company’s GEMS series is
essentially an exoskeleton that an enhances human performance. The
GEMS-H (fitted to the hips) can boost your walking speed by 20 percent,
improve your balance by 19 percent and reduce your energy
expenditure by 23 percent, Samsung said.
More on this in 2020, but watch this space.

BIG SMALL SCREENS
LG
CURVED OLED SCREEN
This was a huge year for TVs at CES with real innovation and leaps forward.
8K screens were everywhere from Samsung, LG (pictured here), Sony,
Panasonic, and others, proving that 8K will only continue to grow in 2019.
Home theaters will forever be revolutionized by high resolution screens
that can be assembled in any size or shape you desire. Of course,
Samsung continued to impress with it’s 219-inch “The Wall,” a Micro-LED
TV. It is a new type of TV technology that is emissive, like OLED, but unlike
OLED it uses only red, green, and blue LED pixels, so not only can it deliver
true black levels, but it is incredibly bright and colorful. It’s 4K, not 8K, but at
this size, you won’t be bothered. It looks amazing, and the contrast is off
the charts.
LG may have a rollable OLED TV to release this year, but it risked
overshadowing its own flagship with its incredible LG OLED Falls
installation at CES 2019 which was likely the most photographed product of
the show (pictured here) . LG’s OLED TV R (R for “rolled”) was still an
impressive introduction. Imagine your TV emerging from a long
rectangular box and when you’re done watching, it rolls right back down,
out of sight! This creates exciting new interior design opportunities and
also offers a more portable screening solution!

THE 5G PROMISE
JOHN DEERE
5G AND THE FUTURE OF FARMING
Every generation of mobile network so far, including 4G, has been about
connecting people. And although 5G will likewise be designed to
connect people, it will also be about connecting things.
Last year we reported on how 5G network capabilities will allow for faster
service, less latency and enable more devices to be connected across the
globe. And while most reports place 5G becoming a reality in 2020, CES is
the only show where the entire 5G ecosystem can be showcased, and so it
was a major point of discussion..
Verizon summarized the benefits of 5G into “Eight Currencies” including
speed and throughput, mobility, connected devices and IoT, energy
efficiency and service deployment, and latency and reliability.
Interestingly, John Deere emerged as a prime candidate for 5G. Deere is
leading an “AgTech revolution” and connectivity is an important element
of its solution. Today, rural areas are dramatically underserved by 4G LTE.
5G fixes and mobile deployments utilizing Massive MIMO technology
should dramatically improve rural connectivity, showing that 5G will have
applications to businesses and industries that many haven’t event
considered..

DRIVING FORWARD
HARLEY-DAVIDSON
LIVEWIRE ELECTRIC MOTORCYCLE
Many people were overheard commenting on how CES has become the best
car show in the world. As in years before, CES 2019 demonstrated that the
car has become our most powerful and complex smart device, using
more data than any other device we own. Connectivity, autonomy, and
electrification reigned supreme with varying degrees of realism and
feasibility. And while full driving autonomy remains years away, CES 2019
confirmed that 2019 will be the year of in-car connectivity, from integrated
entertainment systems to safety solutions (like Qualcomm’s 9150 chipset).
Innovative new vehicle types emerged at CES 2019 like Bell’s full-scale
prototype of a vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) air taxi. Hyundai also
debuted their Elevate Ultimate Mobility Vehicle (UMV) which serves an
emergency EV that can hop five-foot walls and get over the most impassable
obstacles with ease, making it possible for first responders to get to people
in need easier and faster. It is a "four-legged first responder.”
And Harley-Davidson bet big on their first production electric motorcycle
(pictured here). Livewire, which does 110 miles on a single charge goes into
production this fall and will be available for pre-order for a whopping $29,799
for those seeking the latest from the legendary brand.

DIGITAL BFFS
KIKI BY ZOETIC AI
Robots as personal companions - (or “Digital BFFs”) is another continuing
trend from 2018, with SoftBank’s Pepper (featured on the cover of this
section) returning once again to CES.
As shared in the Robotics & AI section of this report, one of the most exciting
products that we spotted was/is Lovot, a new companion robot from
Japanese startup Groove X. Groove X's founder, Kaname Hayashi, is known as
the "father of Pepper.” Lovot just wants to make people happy and give love.
Another companion robot at the show was an adorable pet called KiKi from
Zoetic AI, which has more feline features vs. last year’s Aibo (Sony).
Of course there were still plenty of service-oriented robots, with AI solving a
wide range of needs - from mobility and automation to a robot that will
deliver your beer and snacks to your chair for the big game (check out “Fresh
Geoffrey,” a robot butler).
AI is being embedded into more and more “vessels,” so look for more AI -
enhanced user experiences. And with the proliferation of these AI helpers,
look for voice to become the norm for interacting and engaging with your
devices.

GAME ON!
ATARI
PONG COFFEE TABLE
Gaming has never been bigger, and the world’s tech companies are well aware
of gamers’ lust for the best hardware. While CES isn’t considered a gaming
convention, the convention has been one of the most prominent launchpads
for gaming tech for years - and CES 2019 was no exception.
This year marked the introduction of a number of impressive gaming laptops.
ASUS had perhaps the most exciting gaming laptops, with its ROG (Republic of
Gamers) series introducing the ASUS ROG Mothership. Featuring the uber-
powerful Intel Core i9 and latest-generation NVIDIA GeForce 20-series INSIDE
of the 17.3 inch Full HD screen. Placing these features in the screen, rather than
the keyboard, means more air can reach the components - making it highly
efficient for gaming. Other notable mentions were the Alienware Area-51m
which allows users to swap out the CPU and CPU at any time, along with a
desktop-quality processor; Razer’s Razer Blade Advanced which featured
powerful features and a stunning look; and the Acer Predator Triton 900, a 2-
in-1 featuring 4 distinct modes (laptop, easel, display, and reversed).
But it was the Atari Pong Coffee Table, and its newly launched sister products
the Atari Pong Arcade Table and Atari Pong Cocktail Table, that won our hearts
and imaginations. These gorgeously designed tables succeed in making the
classic game cool again, while also reminding us that gaming isn’t always just
about high resolution graphics and stories- but it is always about having fun.
11
NOW SERVING APPLE
APPLE AT
CES 2019
Apple usually skips CES, but made its presence felt at CES through
partnerships with companies like Samsung and LG. Apple and Samsung
have been bitter rivals for about a decade, yet Samsung was one of the key
partnerships announced at CES 2019 for Apple - with Samsung TVs
equipped to offer support for iTunes movies and TV shows. Samsung
TVs will also support AirPlay 2, Apple’s upgraded Wi-Fi Audio streaming
technology.
While Samsung is the only TV maker to offer iTunes TV and videos on its
sets, other companies will let users stream content from their iPhones,
iPads and Macs to their televisions. LG, Vizio and Sony said that Apple’s
AirPlay 2 and HomeKit are coming to their televisions. For LG, its 2019 smart
TVs will feature the technology, as will TVs from Sony.
So why the change of heart? Apple’s services business has always been a
driver for the company and so it isn’t surprising that the company is making
certain aspects of its services available on more electronics. With the
announcement that the company is launching a new video-streaming
service, it would be limiting for the company to diminish the number of
possible users for the platform.
Perhaps the moral of the story is, “If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em?”

its ability to track brain and body health. In addition
to tap control and language translation, the Livio also
features a user interface that can detect falls and
other advanced environmental occurrence.

WIDEX EVOKE EC™
WHAT IT IS
Widex Energy Cell™ / WIDEX EVOKE EC™ is a battery-
free hearing aid, and is the first of its kind. It is also
the world's smallest commercial fuel cell. By
"refilling" it for a mere 20 seconds in the refill well,
you get a full 24 hours of functionality. The refill well
works by extracting any remaining methanol and
supplying the fuel cell with new methanol.
WHY IT MATTERS
This is particularly great for hearing-aid users who
are unable to take their aid out to charge it up for
hours. Users don't need to worry about batteries,
chargers or being near an outlet, they can power it up
any time anywhere in 20 seconds.

HEALTH & WELLNESS
WATERGEN GENNY
WHAT IT IS
Watergen Atmospheric Water Generator (GENNY) is a
water generator that draws in air and converts it to
purified, safe drinking water. It is also safe to use in
high-pollution environments. In fact, it makes the air
in those areas better through its sophisticated air-
filtration process, actually venting clean air back into
the immediate surroundings. Great for home or
office use.
WHY IT MATTERS
Not having access to clean water is a huge
humanitarian crisis - and this device can generate up
to 25 Liters of water per day and only requires a
simple plug-in. It’s a game changer.

Tetra Countertop Dishwasher. It is WIFI connected,
uses only one gallon of water and cleans your
kitchenwares with its own water and no plumbing
required. Tetra conserves up to 80% of water and
energy vs. traditional dishwashers.
WHY IT MATTERS
The majority of dishwashers available on the market
right now are not designed for how we actually live.
They are too big, take too long and consume
significant energy and water. Tetra has been dubbed
one of the most game-changing appliances for
kitchens small or large and a dream come true for
apartment dwellers.
52
SMART HOME

56
VEHICLES
AUDI XR
WHAT IT IS
Audi's Audio Virtual Reality Experience (also referred to
as Audi XR), is in partnership with Disney and Marvel
Studios. The idea is to entertain the kids (or the adults)
in the backseat while the driver is focused on driving.
The entire concept of a car will evolve to be more and
more autonomous, becoming larger, wider, taller
eventually, something that is meant purely for transport
with AI that watches for traffic problems, handles all of
the steering, communicates with other cars, and does all
of the hard work as we watch a movie and relax.
WHY IT MATTERS
This partnership ushers in a new age of entertainment
leveraging virtual reality while simultaneously taking in-
car entertainment to the next level.
57
VEHICLES
BELL NEXUS AIR TAXI

the next innovation in air transport, the Bell Nexus
urban air taxi. The Bell Nexus will be ideal for ride-
sharing, and will be fully equipped with WiFi, video
calling, AI, and wireless charging. Set to launch in
2023, Bell has been the first to publicly exhibit a full-
scale model, after several other partners (Karen’s
Butterfly, Embraer’s DreamMaker, and a bat-wing
design from Pipistrel) put forward images at Uber’s
Elevate Summit last year.
WHY IT MATTERS
Uber Air, a part of the Uber Elevate program, is aiming
to reduce individual car ownership and change the
way people travel in urban areas.
58
VEHICLES
BMW X7
WHAT IT IS
For CES 2019, BMW set up a track with a huge hill, ramps,
and other ways to simulate what it would be like to drive
the $73,900 SUV in an off-road situation, showcasing the
company’s superior focus on the user experience and
interface. The off-roading interface for the X7 featured
an AI bot in the car that is constantly analyzing the road
in front of you, looking for the gradient of the road and
any impediments. MSRP: $73,900
WHY IT MATTERS
A strong potentially autonomous solution, the vehicle
may someday have the ability to steer out of troubling
situations. Also, if a BMW X7 is connected to other X7
vehicles, the data on vehicle tilt could transmit to other
drivers, giving new meaning to “Connected Car.”
59
VEHICLES
BYTON M-BYTE CONCEPT CAR

display (a screen as big as 7 iPads), face recognition,
biometric metering, gesture control, and more. Its
first car, simply known as the Byton Concept for now,
is a crossover SUV which sits low and wide with large
22-inch wheels, giving it a powerful stance even
without the usual height of a sports utility vehicle.
The firm says the car will be available towards the
end of 2019 for an "entry-level premium" price tag.
WHY IT MATTERS
Founded by executives from Tesla, BMW, and Nissan,
Byton secured $500M in funding to bring their
electronic vehicles to market and has several
Chinese investors including Tencent Holdings.
60

assistance features like adaptive cruise control and
lane-keep assist. It offers the features you've come

side blind-spot radar and automatic braking (when it
detects a pedestrian).
WHY IT MATTERS

All of this is not only for the driver's safety, but also to
protect people biking and walking around these
80,000-pound delivery vehicles.
61
VEHICLES

63
VEHICLES

WHAT IT IS

Mercedes’ autonomous concept vehicle features
interchangeable modules that can haul people or
cargo. Mercedes noted that this vehicle is simply a
study in electric, autonomous transportation
solutions and that it has no plans to bring the
Urbanetic to market.
WHY IT MATTERS
The idea of using interchangeable modules on an
autonomous platform is an intriguing way to get
maximum efficiency out of one vehicle.
64
VEHICLES
MERCEDES-BENZ 4-DOOR CLA COUPE
WHAT IT IS
The 4-door CLA Coupe has a new version of MBUX
(Mercedes' voice-centric infotainment system), a
gesture-based interface and a new "energizing coach"
that monitors the driver’s pulse and aims to relax them
via the car's mood feature. A complex gesture control
function has also been added. As a hand nears the
touchscreen, the system brings up a list of preferred
functions.
WHY IT MATTERS
The CLA Coupe has been an important part of Mercedes’
line-up helping it get more customers into its brand -the
appealing design and lower price-point attracts younger
buyers than the usual Mercedes customer.
65
VEHICLES
SCOSCHE BTFREQ
WHAT IT IS

voice activation capability. It is also compatible with
Bluetooth and enables hands-free calling as well as

67
VEHICLES
VALEO XTRAVUE
WHAT IT IS
XtraVue utilizes a vehicles built-in camera tech to
essentially see through whatever is being towed
behind it. Valeo’s XtraVue collects surrounding images
to build a complete picture of what the space behind
the vehicle looks like without anything being towed
behind it. It makes rear cargo invisible, making
reversing and driving with towed cargo easier and
much safer.
WHY IT MATTERS

The 2018 version relied on video feeds from other
connected vehicles and roadside infrastructure, which
means any production version of this system would
need a pretty well fleshed out environment. This latest
version only requires the hardware installed on the
vehicle and its trailer. 68
VR/AR
AUDI HOLORIDE
WHAT IT IS
Holoride technology turns your everyday commute
into a location-based theme park complete with
haptic feedback delivered by the car itself. In
partnership with Disney, Audi debuted Holoride, a
prototype interactive entertainment system that
utilizes VR technology to turn the backseat of any
vehicle into an ever-changing immersive experience.
WHY IT MATTERS
Holoride will eventually release as an open platform
in the hopes of encouraging developers to introduce
their own elastic content: not just in Audi vehicles,
but other major brands as well. This is a new and
unexpected application for VR technology.
69
VR/AR
CYBERSHOES
WHAT IT IS
After a successful crowdfunding campaign, Cybershoes
launched the world’s first Virtual Reality shoe - a VR
accessory that is worn on your feet and allows you to
literally walk and run through virtual reality. The
Cybershoes connect over Bluetooth to a small box that
plugs into your computer; on it is a dial to calibrate the
shoes to your step-length. The peripheral is natively
integrated with SteamVR and should work with games
that enable mobility.
WHY IT MATTERS
VR has had and continues to have a locomotion problem:
move the player too unnaturally, and they might get
queasy. Cybershoes are an ingenious solution to the
problem - and slide on your feet like a ski boot.
70
VR/AR
TESLASUIT
WHAT IT IS
The Teslasuit is the stuff of science fiction, but it’s
real. The Teslasuit has an advanced haptic feedback
system. In addition, the suit has climate control and
biometric features as well as a full-motion capture
suite.
WHY IT MATTERS
Although the suit will likely be cost prohibitive at first,

consumers, taking gaming to the next level.
71
VR/AR
HTC VIVE COSMOS HEADSET
WHAT IT IS
The Vive Cosmos is HTC’s bid at a relatively mainstream
VR headset featuring striking graphics, lifelike sound, and

of use. The Cosmos doesn’t require external sensors and
uses fully tracked motion controllers. Developer kits are
anticipated in early 2019 with a launch likely at the end of
the year. A price has not yet been announced.
WHY IT MATTERS
The Vive Cosmos fills a niche between the set-up
intensive and more costly Vive and the entry-level Vive
Focus. HTC noted that it will also have the capability to be
powered by more than a traditional gaming PC, which
many have speculated could include a smartphone.
72
VR/AR

WHY IT MATTERS
A smart, practical solution for making workouts more
fun.
73
WEARABLES
DOPPEL
WHAT IT IS
Worn on the inside of the wrist, the Doppel pulses in
rhythms intended to simulate a heartbeat. It works
by creating a silent vibration on the inside of your
wrist which feels just like the ‘lub-dub’ of a
heartbeat. The wearer can adjust the speed
depending on whether he or she wants to calm down
or get energized. Doppel has been tested and shown
to both reduce stress and increase focus.
MSRP: $209
WHY IT MATTERS
Unlike the Apple Watch, this will pair with Android as
well as iOS phones. It is cheaper than the Apple
Watch as well.
74
WEARABLES

sensor and water resistance. MSRP:

WHY IT MATTERS

Good, affordable smart watch/fitness companions
with some useful features.
76
WEARABLES
WITHINGS MOVE ECG SMARTWATCH
WHAT IT IS
The Withings Move ECG Smartwatch comes with an
integrated electrocardiogram monitor for spotting an
irregular heartbeat.
WHY IT MATTERS
The ECG monitor takes a reading, and during the
measurement, your ECG signal appears instantly in
the Health Mate app. Then, the app alerts you if you
need to consult your specialist and your ECG records
can be easily sent to your doctor. This is especially
helpful for people with AFib.

memBrain STORM: CES 2019 Review

  • 1. THE STORM REPORT Special Edition Report: CES® 2019 January 8-11, 2019 1
  • 2. THE STORM REPORT @ CES 2019 CES® is the world's gathering place for all those who thrive on the business of consumer technologies and it has served as the proving ground for innovators and breakthrough technologies for 50 years — the global stage where next-generation innovations are introduced to the marketplace. Each year, memBrain attends CES® to gather intelligence on hot new products and to identify emerging trends and industries. This special edition of The STORM Report is a compilation of memBrain’s observations from the CES® show floor combined with the most “buzzed about” products according to leading industry publications, including the CES® 2019 Innovation Award winners. For the past several years, memBrain has hosted a curated breakfast panel session featuring an interactive discussion related to the year’s most buzzed about topics at CES. This year, memBrain collaborated with the newly formed Wunderman Thompson to co-present our third annual breakfast event. We welcomed ~200 guests from a wide range of industries with speakers from Intel, WPP, Qualcomm and more answering the question “Are You Future Ready?” 2
  • 4. INTRODUCTION CES 2019 was slightly larger than last year, with more than 4,500 exhibitors sprawled across 2.7 million square feet. However, now that the conference is over and we reflect on everything that we experienced and the key trends and breakthroughs, it seems to be the consensus that CES 2019 was not a year for anything particularly “new.” In fact, most of the trends that we identified as “hot” were simply building on announcements made at CES 2017 and/or 2018 - intelligent virtual assistants, 5G, and connected cars. Of course, there were some glimmers of things to come in 2020 - namely, emerging opportunities thanks largely to 5G accessibility, human health and abilities enhanced by technology, and even feel good robot friends to offer us comfort in troubling times. Vehicles were probably the most exciting category at CES 2019, with many attendees and exhibitors noting that Vegas essentially served as a preview for the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Still, people love CES more than ever. At 33% positive mentions (according to Buzz Radar), 2019 had the highest ever positive mentions - up a whopping 9% from 2017 and 4% from 2018. Included in this report are some of the hottest trends that we spotted on the show floor and in our conversations with attendees and exhibitors. We have also included an at-a-glance look at some of the most “buzz-worthy” products, and why we believe they are worthy of your radar. 4
  • 5. HOTTEST TRENDS 5© 2019 memBrain LLC. Not to be copied or disseminated without prior written approval by memBrain LLC.
  • 6. BECOMING BIONIC SAMSUNG GEMS People talk about technology in terms of what we can do with it. But, what about what it can do for us? How can it expand our physical limits? The future of human ability was another major trend at CES 2019, and perhaps one of the only notable trends that seemed to have grown over the past year. There is a strong belief in the bionics community that future human mobility and developing medical devices will eventually come to a point where the advanced products will be accepted by the end user as part of their body, similar to the way the smart phone is accepted as an extension of our hands, so-to-speak. Just as Samsung is designing robots that provide health and wellness support, the company has also invested in mobility and wearable enhancements for the human body. The company’s GEMS series is essentially an exoskeleton that an enhances human performance. The GEMS-H (fitted to the hips) can boost your walking speed by 20 percent, improve your balance by 19 percent and reduce your energy expenditure by 23 percent, Samsung said. More on this in 2020, but watch this space. 6
  • 7. BIG SMALL SCREENS LG CURVED OLED SCREEN This was a huge year for TVs at CES with real innovation and leaps forward. 8K screens were everywhere from Samsung, LG (pictured here), Sony, Panasonic, and others, proving that 8K will only continue to grow in 2019. Home theaters will forever be revolutionized by high resolution screens that can be assembled in any size or shape you desire. Of course, Samsung continued to impress with it’s 219-inch “The Wall,” a Micro-LED TV. It is a new type of TV technology that is emissive, like OLED, but unlike OLED it uses only red, green, and blue LED pixels, so not only can it deliver true black levels, but it is incredibly bright and colorful. It’s 4K, not 8K, but at this size, you won’t be bothered. It looks amazing, and the contrast is off the charts. LG may have a rollable OLED TV to release this year, but it risked overshadowing its own flagship with its incredible LG OLED Falls installation at CES 2019 which was likely the most photographed product of the show (pictured here) . LG’s OLED TV R (R for “rolled”) was still an impressive introduction. Imagine your TV emerging from a long rectangular box and when you’re done watching, it rolls right back down, out of sight! This creates exciting new interior design opportunities and also offers a more portable screening solution! 7
  • 8. THE 5G PROMISE JOHN DEERE 5G AND THE FUTURE OF FARMING Every generation of mobile network so far, including 4G, has been about connecting people. And although 5G will likewise be designed to connect people, it will also be about connecting things. Last year we reported on how 5G network capabilities will allow for faster service, less latency and enable more devices to be connected across the globe. And while most reports place 5G becoming a reality in 2020, CES is the only show where the entire 5G ecosystem can be showcased, and so it was a major point of discussion.. Verizon summarized the benefits of 5G into “Eight Currencies” including speed and throughput, mobility, connected devices and IoT, energy efficiency and service deployment, and latency and reliability. Interestingly, John Deere emerged as a prime candidate for 5G. Deere is leading an “AgTech revolution” and connectivity is an important element of its solution. Today, rural areas are dramatically underserved by 4G LTE. 5G fixes and mobile deployments utilizing Massive MIMO technology should dramatically improve rural connectivity, showing that 5G will have applications to businesses and industries that many haven’t event considered.. 8
  • 9. DRIVING FORWARD HARLEY-DAVIDSON LIVEWIRE ELECTRIC MOTORCYCLE Many people were overheard commenting on how CES has become the best car show in the world. As in years before, CES 2019 demonstrated that the car has become our most powerful and complex smart device, using more data than any other device we own. Connectivity, autonomy, and electrification reigned supreme with varying degrees of realism and feasibility. And while full driving autonomy remains years away, CES 2019 confirmed that 2019 will be the year of in-car connectivity, from integrated entertainment systems to safety solutions (like Qualcomm’s 9150 chipset). Innovative new vehicle types emerged at CES 2019 like Bell’s full-scale prototype of a vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) air taxi. Hyundai also debuted their Elevate Ultimate Mobility Vehicle (UMV) which serves an emergency EV that can hop five-foot walls and get over the most impassable obstacles with ease, making it possible for first responders to get to people in need easier and faster. It is a "four-legged first responder.” And Harley-Davidson bet big on their first production electric motorcycle (pictured here). Livewire, which does 110 miles on a single charge goes into production this fall and will be available for pre-order for a whopping $29,799 for those seeking the latest from the legendary brand. 9
  • 10. DIGITAL BFFS KIKI BY ZOETIC AI Robots as personal companions - (or “Digital BFFs”) is another continuing trend from 2018, with SoftBank’s Pepper (featured on the cover of this section) returning once again to CES. As shared in the Robotics & AI section of this report, one of the most exciting products that we spotted was/is Lovot, a new companion robot from Japanese startup Groove X. Groove X's founder, Kaname Hayashi, is known as the "father of Pepper.” Lovot just wants to make people happy and give love. Another companion robot at the show was an adorable pet called KiKi from Zoetic AI, which has more feline features vs. last year’s Aibo (Sony). Of course there were still plenty of service-oriented robots, with AI solving a wide range of needs - from mobility and automation to a robot that will deliver your beer and snacks to your chair for the big game (check out “Fresh Geoffrey,” a robot butler). AI is being embedded into more and more “vessels,” so look for more AI - enhanced user experiences. And with the proliferation of these AI helpers, look for voice to become the norm for interacting and engaging with your devices. 10
  • 11. GAME ON! ATARI PONG COFFEE TABLE Gaming has never been bigger, and the world’s tech companies are well aware of gamers’ lust for the best hardware. While CES isn’t considered a gaming convention, the convention has been one of the most prominent launchpads for gaming tech for years - and CES 2019 was no exception. This year marked the introduction of a number of impressive gaming laptops. ASUS had perhaps the most exciting gaming laptops, with its ROG (Republic of Gamers) series introducing the ASUS ROG Mothership. Featuring the uber- powerful Intel Core i9 and latest-generation NVIDIA GeForce 20-series INSIDE of the 17.3 inch Full HD screen. Placing these features in the screen, rather than the keyboard, means more air can reach the components - making it highly efficient for gaming. Other notable mentions were the Alienware Area-51m which allows users to swap out the CPU and CPU at any time, along with a desktop-quality processor; Razer’s Razer Blade Advanced which featured powerful features and a stunning look; and the Acer Predator Triton 900, a 2- in-1 featuring 4 distinct modes (laptop, easel, display, and reversed). But it was the Atari Pong Coffee Table, and its newly launched sister products the Atari Pong Arcade Table and Atari Pong Cocktail Table, that won our hearts and imaginations. These gorgeously designed tables succeed in making the classic game cool again, while also reminding us that gaming isn’t always just about high resolution graphics and stories- but it is always about having fun. 11
  • 12. NOW SERVING APPLE APPLE AT CES 2019 Apple usually skips CES, but made its presence felt at CES through partnerships with companies like Samsung and LG. Apple and Samsung have been bitter rivals for about a decade, yet Samsung was one of the key partnerships announced at CES 2019 for Apple - with Samsung TVs equipped to offer support for iTunes movies and TV shows. Samsung TVs will also support AirPlay 2, Apple’s upgraded Wi-Fi Audio streaming technology. While Samsung is the only TV maker to offer iTunes TV and videos on its sets, other companies will let users stream content from their iPhones, iPads and Macs to their televisions. LG, Vizio and Sony said that Apple’s AirPlay 2 and HomeKit are coming to their televisions. For LG, its 2019 smart TVs will feature the technology, as will TVs from Sony. So why the change of heart? Apple’s services business has always been a driver for the company and so it isn’t surprising that the company is making certain aspects of its services available on more electronics. With the announcement that the company is launching a new video-streaming service, it would be limiting for the company to diminish the number of possible users for the platform. Perhaps the moral of the story is, “If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em?” 12
  • 13. BUZZWORTHY PRODUCTS13© 2019 memBrain LLC. Not to be copied or disseminated without prior written approval by memBrain LLC.
  • 14. CES® 2019 BUZZWORTHY PRODUCTS 2019 KEY CATEGORIES AI and Robotics Audio and Video Computers Digital Imaging Display Products Family Tech Health & Wellness Smart Home Vehicles VR/AR Wearables 14 The $398 billion dollar U.S. consumer technology industry is attracted to CES® as it is a showcase for more than 4,500 exhibiting companies in 30+ categories. The world’s business leaders and pioneering thinkers come to CES® to explore innovation and also to consider the potential for technology to shape our future. Included in this report are the following key categories which we identified as most relevant and noteworthy from CES® 2019:
  • 15. AI AND ROBOTICS BRAINCO, INC BRAINROBOTICS WHAT IT IS BrainCo, Inc.’s BrainRobotics prosthetic hand is aimed to grant amputees the ability to control their hands and further empower them to live life with control. Using proprietary AI algorithms, BrainCo’s prosthetic hand learns to understand each amputee’s desired gestures, with the system continually adapting and improving as the individual uses it. MSRP: Target is to be under $5,000 WHY IT MATTERS This process creates a more natural experience than has ever been possible and makes the prosthetic an innate extension of the user. 15
  • 16. AI AND ROBOTICS GROOVE X LOVOT WHAT IT IS LOVOT is an adorable Japanese robot that is designed for one purpose: to give you love. For those concerned with privacy, Lovot can function without being connected to the internet, though software updates, data backup and app linkage will require an internet connection. MSRP: $5,300 (sold in pairs) 
 WHY IT MATTERS Lovot was created to evoke feelings of happiness and positive emotional response through the robot's look, feel, sound, and behavior. It is another example of a product that doesn’t solely rely on functionality, and has a form factor that is friendly and welcoming. 16
  • 17. AI AND ROBOTICS BELLROBOT MABOT WHAT IT IS Mabot by Bellrobot is a plug-in-play toy building kit that provides children with modular components to create robots with unique functions such as moving, sensing their surroundings, and interacting with the environment. Winner of the CES 2019 Innovation Award for Robotics and Drones Mabots are built with a modular design that is fully compatible with LEGO pieces allowing kids to create and innovate to their heart’s content. MSRP: $199 
 WHY IT MATTERS Perhaps one of the most important toy trends in decades is the motivation of children to be active participants rather than passive observers when they play. 17
  • 18. AI AND ROBOTICS ROBOLINK ZÜMI ROBOCAR WHAT IT IS The Zümi RoboCar is a fun and accessible learning tool for AI & Robotics enthusiasts, from beginners to advanced users. Users gain skills and deep learning in machine vision, basic robotics, Python, self- driving car decision & ethics, and routing algorithms. MSRP: $139 (on Kickstarter currently) WHY IT MATTERS Zümi's design is small, friendly, adorable, and approachable, and takes the intimidation out of learning robotics. 18
  • 19. AI AND ROBOTICS SAMSUNG BOT CARE WHAT IT IS Bridging the gap between health & wellness and AI is Samsung’s Bot Care which is designed to be a full- service health monitoring robot. Sensors can detect your breathing as you sleep to tell you how well you rested. If you put a finger on the sensor, it can calculate vitals like your heart rate. The machine can remind you to take your medicine or even detect falls, one of the major causes of death for seniors. WHY IT MATTERS Health care workers can remotely monitor settings and see your vitals, as can your family members. And the data syncs with the Samsung Health app, which you can view on your Galaxy devices. 19
  • 20. AI AND ROBOTICS UBTECH'S WALKER WHAT IT IS Ubtech's Walker was strolling around CES last year. Back then, though, it was basically an iPad on legs. This year it's a fully humanoid bipedal robot. Not only that, it learned to recognize objects and even love. Well, at least hug. WHY IT MATTERS The Walker is basically the robot butler we've all dreamed of. And at some point in the future, it could deliver you a can of Coke and a tube of Pringles while you kick back and watch Netflix. 20
  • 21. AUDIO AND VIDEO ALIBABA’S TRANSLATOR WHAT IT IS Developed by Alibaba’s Machine Intelligence Technology Laboratory, this Translator During Video Calls is a system for cross-border communication that could be a real game-changer both for e- commerce as well as business-to-business communication. WHY IT MATTERS The world is shrinking thanks to communications software like this. We anticipate seeing this kind of tool as revolutionary for international business communications and a more connected world. 21
  • 22. AUDIO AND VIDEO CAMBRIDGE AUDIO ALVA TT WHAT IT IS
 Cambridge Audio's game changing Alva TT is the first wireless record player to stream incredibly high- resolution audio over Bluetooth through utilizing the aptX HD standard. MSRP: £1,500 WHY IT MATTERS Wireless capability aside, this is a highly specified turntable, and it's designed to appeal to the well- heeled listener who wants a true set-and-forget system. 22
  • 23. AUDIO AND VIDEO DTS - IMAX ENHANCED WHAT IT IS IMAX and Xperi (the parent company behind DTS) showcased IMAX Enhanced at CES 2019. A 4-fold experience using proprietary post-production techniques to digitally remaster video and audio, IMAX Enhanced promises the ultimate home cinema experience. Three companies are signed on to stream IMAX Enhanced content: Tencent Video (China), FandangoNOW (U.S.), and Rakuten TV (Europe). Privilege 4K will begin streaming IMAX Enhanced content to select Sony BRAVIA TVs later in 2019. WHY IT MATTERS While it isn’t the same as the big screen, seeing the quality of an IMAX movie from the comfort of your living room is worthy of some excitement! 23
  • 24. AUDIO AND VIDEO HERCULES' DJ CONTROL INPULSE 300 WHAT IT IS Hercules' DJ Control Inpulse 300 is the first of its kind, a DJ tool and controller, providing intuitive learning for up and coming DJs & music producers. Features like 16 pads, 8 modes, and large jog wheels make it competitive with pro DJ controllers. MSRP: $199 WHY IT MATTERS The Hercules’ DJ Control Inpulse 300’s features make it easy to learn and master mixing and beat- matching manually. Anticipated to be a game changer for aspiring DJs who can’t afford pro DJ controllers. 24
  • 25. AUDIO AND VIDEO IHOME’S AQUIO SPEAKER BOTTLE WHAT IT IS
 iHome’s AQUIO (iBTB2) is a BPA-free, double wall insulated, stainless steel bottle that combines hydration and music. It stands at about 11.5 inches and is slender with a steel ring near the lid. It has a strong, elastic carrying loop that can be easily attached to, say, a river tube with a carabiner.
