We all love technology as it makes lives easier and increases efficiency. Consumer electronics have the latest innovation in terms of technology to make our lives at home way easier. Since in some cases it may be hard to keep up with the coming technology or to even know it, there are annual shows that have been made to cover this. One of this is the consumer electronics which is an annual trade show that happens every January and is organized by the Consumer Technology Association in Las Vegas. Some of the best innovations in the consumer electronics show include:
Folding selfie drone
With the new age that is crazy about selfies, this selfie drone made it to be among the greatest innovations. It is a well-designed Chinese quad copter that can at the same time fold to be the size of a hardback book. It contains propellers that all have a carbon fiber cage around them to provide flexibility in carrying them around without any chance of injury. Unlike other kinds of drones, this particular one does not need a controller since it has 4k camera that knows the owners face and follows it. It also comes with an inbuilt sensor that helps it to fly at a steady height. Even though it is more expensive, t give you value for your money since it is simpler and more efficient than any other drone.
Hoverboard Silicone Case FULL Cover GREY 6.5 inch Hoverboard Accessories (FDA Approve Silicone) 2 Two Wheel Self Balance Hover Board Scooter Plastics Rubber Skins Protective Shell By Sublime Ware
This is a great innovation with great covers for 6.5” Hoverboards. It fits perfectly well on your hoverboards so that you can easily access charging ports with this cover and you don’t have to take out the case just to charge the hoverboard.
The case has been a good fit to get the sleeve of the wheel perfectly, so that it may not interfere with the movement of the wheel. It has a hole for the LED light that has been perfectly fit to avoid damaging your hoverboard.
Walls have ears
It makes it possible for virtual assistants to function in the home as virtual assistants such as Alexa and Google assistant need to hear commands to be able to function well. There are smart desktop speakers such as Echo that work well in any kitchen. Generally the innovation is a mic with artificial intelligence that is put in the wall and operates with Google assistant. It can also operate with a TV streaming box which is NVidia shield.
Home Robots for kids
This is one of the best innovations that act as robots for kids. The robot, Leka is a good looking robo-ball which has a smiling face as well as rainbow lights. It is mainly meant to help children with autism and learning disabilities. It has a range of educational games that are proved to make one smarter.
There is also an AI powered robot nanny that was made by Mattel a famous toy maker and is called Aristotle. It can bring real time revolution in your kids life as it has been made with an echo-style smart speaker, an inbuilt camera, and a light bulb that is color shifting . These features help it to play games with kids, read bed time stories to kids and sing lullabies.
This is a great innovation for those who don’t want to waste time in the shower. With Moen’s U shower system, you can use your smartphone to control the heat of your shower via Wi-Fi. The system has an app that gives you a notification when the desired temperature has been reached. Its limitation however is the price as it costs more than $1000 which many may not subscribe to.
Voice control of devices is not only limited to cars, TVs, washing machines, and fridges but also a trash can. An example of this is a simple human’s sensor can. With this kitchen innovation you don’t have to open the pedal by stepping on it rather you just have to command the bin to open.
Under water drones
This is a rare innovation that is unique and different from the usual drones that is one the sky. The power Ray can be controlled by a smartphone and can go up to 30m deep and on the phone you can live stream a video of what is happening in the water. You can use a VR headset to watch the drone’s footage. It can mainly be used by fishermen to catch fish as it has a fishfinder sonar alert that gives alerts.
There are many more innovations in the consumer electronics show that have not been listed but have been there in the previous years. There are also many more that are still under construction. It shows us that Artificial intelligence and virtual reality are here already. Due to the growing popularity of the show and demand, there is need for a special TV show to feature that so that many can have access to it other than having to look for it on the internet. There can be an innovation show showing all the innovations that have happened before. I’m pretty sure that the chances are high that with a TV show there will be even more participants in the consumer electronics show. As much as there are many innovations in the consumer electronics show, not many make it to the market either due to price or need for production funding or the idea itself. For example for the case of talking rubbish, not many find it a pressing need for talking as opposed to stepping on the peddle. Also the case of smart shower the price has been overrated.
