The current iteration of this story is from Will Smith (no, not that Will Smith), who writes for Tested. In his article “CES: It’s Mostly Bullshit”, he expounds on the suckiness of all things CES. He’s really only redeemed by saying “mostly”
If you’re interested in technology news, the Internet is full of articles that summarize what was at CES this year, and what kinds of trends to watch. My perspective is that this coverage leans to a different slant – more than the products themselves. I think people want to know about more than just hype and flashy products. 17 years later in Las Vegas, I wanted to find the real CES.
Over the week, I’ll be bringing you more from the show, but for now – I’m going to look at what kinds of stuff I’m most looking forward to this year.
Often, the products on display are years off – and others are about to be mass-produced. Through all of the coverage, I’ll showcase a few of the products that I found interesting – and some trends I see in what’s generally considered the biggest show in tech.
Many of the products that will be on the shelves later in the year end up being shown at this conference. Running from January 10th to the 13th, it’s short – but it makes up for that brevity in sheer volume of interesting products. These days, I mainly watch with an eye to seeing what’s next in technology. So, let me take you through some of the more interesting stuff to come out of this year’s show.
