There are the giants of industry and then there are the true pioneers. Jack Wayman was both of them.
CES 2014 showcased quite the number of booths dedicated to personal audio, such as headphones and speakers. Most booths were content to simply let me wander in and out. But not Wicked. Not until you put a pair on and stopped for a listen.
One of the many unique products I saw while at CES 2014 was the Ozobot. I lucked out at the booth and got a chance to speak to the team without having swarms of others around me. The Ozobot booth, and the robotics area as a whole, typically teemed with the curious.
CES is an absolute beast to chew through, especially if you’re dedicated to get up close and see as much as you can before the week is over. It’s not just that there are a bunch (i.e. thousands) of booths, but the small ones tend to be especially easy to miss.
Each year, tech marches on with advanced features to further pervade our lives in connected ways. With this is mind, it’s not often that one comes across a new gadget that takes a completely different approach.
While the majority of wearable tech shown at CES 2014 seemed to be in the realm of fitness and health trackers, there were some others if you took the time to look carefully.
While roaming the halls of CES 2014, you couldn’t get very far without passing another booth showing off an assortment of Bluetooth speakers and/or headphones. Bright colors had been a recurring theme as well, with some products looking more like polished candy than pressed plastic.
I remember seeing the ZEROHOUR Tactical Battery Backup Flashlight launch on Kickstarter not too long ago. Sadly, I forgot to follow up and write a post. But the good news is that I got to stop by the booth while at CES, and I chatted it up with the team and got some hands-on with this beautiful beast of a device.
Not only was CES 2014 my very first, it was also the first time I’ve ever experienced Vegas outside of having a layover at the airport. I know, right? But even though I didn’t have the time (or money) to catch any Vegas shows, I still had a complete blast.
f you were following the Consumers Electronics Show 2014 closely, you would have known that Sony unveiled a compact version of its flagship device, Sony Xperia Z1 Compact that comes with almost the same specifications as its big sibling, with a trimmed down display of 4.3-inch. The company also launched its flagship devices in the US as a T-Mobile exclusive, dubbed as Sony Xperia Z1s.
I wanted to say Netatmo brings the heat with June, but seeing as June is a wearable tech device designed to protect its users from the sun’s rays, I figured the title I chose was more appropriate. Did you enjoy that long-winded intro? You’re welcome. Out of all the wearable tech devices I saw at CES 2014, Netatmo’s beautiful June device was one of my favorites. And I’m talking smartwatches, heart monitors and all that jazz.
Although 3D printing has been out for quite some time, it has only recently started to become more affordable and accessible to the common consumer. We saw some great projects launch and succeed in 2013, so 2014 might be where 3D printing hits a new stride.
