International CES: Day One

International CES: Day One
by Bill Jewell on 01-05-2014 at 10:00 pm

Semiconductor Intelligence will be attending the International CES this week in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) puts on the show each year. The CEA insists the meeting be called “International CES” and states “CES” no longer stands for Consumer Electronics Show. The show is now about “consumer technology” which is broader than just electronics. Anyway, it is a chance to get together with about 150,000 of my closest friends and see the latest in consumer gadgets. I will post daily updates with my impressions on the coolest stuff and observations of the chaos which is CES.

Sunday, January 5, 2014
For all of you suffering in heavy snow and sub-zero temperatures, it is sunny and in the 50s in Las Vegas. Today was CES Unveiled, an introduction to some of the CES exhibits. The items ranged from the usual suspects (lots of headphones and speakers) to the cool to the “why does anyone need this?”

Among the cool: drones are not just for taking out Al Qaeda anymore. Several were flying around CES Unveiled. Supposedly they have practical applications in surveying and aerial photography, but are mainly a cool toy you can use to spy on your neighbors.

Also among the cool:zepp.comhas sensors which mount on a golf club, baseball bat or tennis racket. All the information about your swing (motion, speed, angles) is available to review on your PC or phone.

Another cool device was from guard2me.com. This wristwatch size device is designed for people with dementia. The device can track where a person is, outside with GPS or inside with Wifi. It can also sense when a person falls and alert medical personnel.

In the “why does anyone need this” category is a lighting system which allows you to turn off or dim your lights with your phone. A more practical lighting device was from SmartCharge. The LED bulb acts as a normal light bulb. When the power goes out, it will run for up to four hours using the regular light switch control.

More from sunny Vegas tomorrow.
