The Consumer Electronics Show, Las Vegas, is over and has left behind so much to talk about… Here are the last few gadgets I'd like to share with you before signing off CES.
1. House of Marley - One Foundation: House of Marley showcased a fresh lineup of products, but probably the largest and most featured speaker would be the One Foundation. The One foundation is a Hi-Fi home audio sound bar, with 220 Watt stereo speakers, two 1-inch Danish-designed silk-dome tweeters and 5.25” woofers. Plus its made out of 100% natural and recycled material and a lot of wood. Its also one of the few speakers that runs Qualcomm’s AllPlay to stream music from smart devices of the cloud using inbuilt Wifi and Bluetooth.
2. USB Type-C: The USB has become a worldwide standard. The USB Type-C, or USB 3.1 is the next generation of USB technology: the USB plug has been converted to a small, reversible connector (no more considering the the direction while plugging in) that can transfer at speeds of up to 10 Gbps (Twice the previous speeds). The small size will surely be a plus with upcoming laptops to be thinner that the USB ports themselves. The USB 3.1 has also integrated the Display Port.
3. Audi A7 with Piloted Driving: Audi wanted to prove that driverless driving is the future. They did it. The Audi A7 with Audi’s Piloted Driving technology drove 550 miles from San Francisco to Vegas without the need for a driver (Like, the “driver” sits in the drivers seat and doesn’t touch the wheel or the pedals. Self driving). The car proved that self-driving truly woks and is surely the future of the car.
4. Quell: NeuroMetrix Inc. showed the Quell, a wearable that… kills pain. This very innovative gadget needs to be worn on your calf and in 15 minutes of usage, you can get rid of any chronic pain anywhere in your body. How does it work? Engadget (Source from NeuroMetrix Inc.) says...
"Quell's OptiTherapy electrode-driven technology uses non-invasive nerve stimulation to make this possible, allowing it to provide "100 percent" prescription-free relief to anyone who uses it. Here's how it works: Quell stimulates the sensory nerves in your calf, then sends neural pulses to your brain, where they trigger the body's natural pain relief response releasing endogenous opioids. Finally, these opioids send pain signals toward the delta opioid receptor, which is what triggers those tedious feelings, and reduces the amount of pain you're experiencing."
The device is already FDA approved and will retail at $250.
5. XYZPrinting food printer: Nuts, right, to print pizzas when you want! One of XYZ Printers 3D printers will literally print, in other words, make pizza for you. Its obviously not the best you can print out of a 3D Printer, but as a prototype, it works. And yes, the pizza is eatable. Only time will tell when this will reach out kitchens!
That’s it for this article and from CES 2015. There is obviously a lot more was showcased but couldn’t end up on my top lists. Anyway, I’ve covered most of the popular gadgets showcased.
So what’s next in 2015? The Detroit Auto Show! This auto shows his gained worldwide popularity and showcases some of the best cars and brands. I’ll make sure to write on that soon.
