CES 2017 Day One
I love CES, even though it is a physically grueling experience the rewards are many. Seeing the innovations close up that are either coming to market or are already here is always exciting. It is such an eye-opening experience seeing so much positive energy being devoted to innovation and design. This year’s CES is special since it marks the 50 year anniversary of this event. The first one was held back in 1967. Before Sony’s Walkman or CDs. We have certainly come a long way. It makes me wonder what we can expect on their 100th anniversary.
The Sands Expo
The Sands Expo is where we will be focusing our attention on today. I spent most of the day on the second floor in Halls A & B and I saw a lot of products in the Smart Home, Smart Toys, and Robotic categories. We looked at innovations from companies like BodyFriend, Moto, Almond 3, AirMega, Titan Robotics, ESUN and their 3D Full Body Scanner, MakeBlock, Essence, Tanscorp and their smart Robots, Qourvo Smart Home technology. Even LEGO was there with their new product “LEGO BOOST”. These are kits that allow kids 7 years old and up, build, code, and play.
We will be doing in-depth articles on the products from these companies over the coming days but for now, we will focus on an overview of the day. There is so much to see and so little time. I spent 5 hours in halls A & B alone. Tomorrow we’ll try to catch a few products of interest at the Sands then move on to the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Here’s a well-deserved plug for a company that does not have a presence at CES but I believe their product was all over the floor at the show. I wore their product all day at the Sands, as I am sure others did as well. Before going to the show I promised myself I would buy the most comfortable shoes I could find. Sketchers came to the rescue. My feet thank you.
That’s all for now. Enjoy our video overview of CES 2017 Day One.
