I loved CES this year. (The 2015 International CES®). Everything about it was interesting, awesome and inspiring, except… the traffic, the shuttle queues and the cab lines. Here’s a quick, very short list of things that got my undivided attention this year.
Dell Venue 8 7000 Series Tablet – Winner of the 2015 CES “Best of Innovation” award.
This 8.4″ with a 2560 x 1600 OLED infinity display and an Intel® RealSense™ Snapshot Depth Camera. This super think tablet allows you to manipulate pictures like a Lytro Camera, apply real time filters to layers of a picture based upon depth and actually measure distances between objects in your pictures. Strongly love!
77″ CLASS UHD 4K SMART 3D CURVED OLED TV W/ WEBOS — OLED Screens feature an infinite contrast ratio and a practically infinite color space. In other words, this is the best TV picture you have seen in a production model television. Awesome!
Samsung JS9500 series is a new concept in UHD or 4K technology. According to Samsung, “Utilizing Samsung’s proprietary, eco-friendly nano-crystal technology and intelligent SUHD re-mastering picture quality engine, Samsung SUHD TVs demonstrate groundbreaking advances in contrast, brightness, color reproduction, and detail to deliver an overall superior picture quality experience.” According to me, the picture looks amazing!
The world’s first kitchen-ready food 3D printer. The ChefJet Pro 3D printer is a full-color, large format printer with a build volume of 10x14x8”. ChefJet Pro printable materials include: chocolate, vanilla, mint, sour apple, cherry and watermelon, all of which can be printed in full-color. Tasty!
Want to shoot incredible 360 degree content for VR, the Giroptic 360cam is for you! Breathtaking, easy to use and affordable.
One of the most interesting things I saw at CES was the Hyundai list of “production ready” features for its semi-autonomous cars. Human/machine partnerships are evolving quickly.
What else did I see?
Mostly I saw consumer electronics on display that supported the ideas and insights in our 2015 CE Trend Report. You can get free access at ces.shellypalmer.com where you’ll also find a list of featured exhibits and a good overview of more than 30 other products that might interest you.
