The innovative, the imaginative, and the tech-savvy congregated in Las Vegas last week for 2017’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES). With 3,800+ exhibiting companies and 165,000+ attendees, CES was the place to be to stay ahead of the curve for news about this year’s tech.
Big things we saw at CES 2017: Innovative TVs, a big focus on AR/VR, smarter technological personal assistants.
Thinner TVs were seen from tech giants Sony, LG, and Samsung – these TVs seem about ready to disappear into thin air, while having higher quality, and better built in sound systems.
Reality defying tech in the AR/VR space was showcased: One of the standout project being gaming company Razer’s Ariana, a gaming projector that sets out to deliver a VR like experience – without the headset.
The past year brought us better AI personal assistants with Google Home and Amazon’s Echo Dot, CES saw Amazon’s Alexa assistant being built into more technology – even cars.
Some other amazing announcements outside of the above trends at CES 2017 that we should keep an eye out for this year:
- Razer’s Insane Three Monitor Laptop: any gamer’s ultimate dream
- The return of much loved retro Super Game Boy, an exciting development for many millennials
- Lego Boost: using a companion app, everyone can make childhood dreams come true and make their very own Lego robots
- Sony’s e-ink watch is setting itself up to give the Apple Watch a run for its money
2017 is a year of innovation, and we can’t wait to see how the projects unveiled at CES develop!
