If you are having to ask yourself what the heck is CES then I am afraid to say you are way out of tune with what is going on in the world of Consumer Electronics.
The Consumer Electronics Show 2017 (CES 2017) is a show held annually in Las Vegas to showcase the latest and greatest of gizmo’s and gadgets that will enrich our lives for the coming year and beyond.
It is such an important showcase of products that every year we look for a selfless volunteer from within MyMemory to place themselves on the frontline and go to Las Vegas so we can see first hand what will shape the future for our customers.
Whilst it took many attempts to contact our intrepid volunteer, we finally managed to get hold of our team member John and with his help have collated a list of the best products we could find at this year’s CES 2017.
In no particular order
A Modular Drone that can be turned into anything your imagination can come up with. This drone will also allow you to programme it too. The best thing is that it is indoor friendly and won’t dent your walls! At the moment the drone is just a concept but you can get a taster of the project by visiting their Kickstarter page here.
2. Poloroid Pop
Turn your smartphone’s digital camera into a device that prints 3″ x 4″ prints that will take you back to the days when polaroid cameras were the biggest things since sliced bread. Not out until later this year but we could not wait to tell you about it now. Find out more here about the Poloroid Pop here.
3. Underwater Drone
This underwater drone will take your fishing to the next level. Capable of diving to depths of up to 30 metres and searching for fish with it’s sonar up to 40 metres away, this bad boy of the underwater world will make sure you catch the biggest of fish all day long! Find out more about the Powerray here.
4. LG OLED TV
At only 3.85mm thin including the wall mount, you could practically wallpaper the TV onto the wall. Not only is the TV super thin it is 4K and optimises the content of the screen to produce the best possible image for your viewing pleasure. Oh and it is 77″! Watch out though, this is going to be expensive! Find our more on LG’s website here.
If you have had the pleasure of having your child ask you the same questions over and over again then why not invest in an electronic assistant that will not only answer all your child’s questions but will read, sing and play games with them too. Problem solved!!! Find out more about how to get your child off your back here!
6. Lego Boost
The guys from Lego have come up with a simpler and cheaper version of Lego Mindstorm called Lego Boost. It will let your children (or you) create and programme just about anything your imagination can come up with and will keep them (you) entertained for many hours, whilst learning at the same time!! Everyone’s a winner! Visit Lego Boost here.
7. Kuri Robot
This 20″ tall robot actually looks like a robot! It has blinking eyes and sounds a little like how a robot should. So forget about the menial tasks you want it to perform just have it positioned around the home as a piece of fine looking art. It also can monitor your home, who is there, send you photos, audio and let you know of any unusual activity taking place. Find out more on the Kuri website.
8. Levitating Portable Speaker
LG’s latest speaker, the Levitating Portable Speaker, does exactly what it says on the tin. Do we need to say anymore…….well, yes. This Bluetooth speaker provides a full 360-degree surround sound experience lasting for up to 10 hrs on a single charge. This speaker has been rated IPX7 so can be listened to whilst outdoors even whilst it is raining! What we like about this speaker is the fact that when it runs out of power it automatically descends to the base station to recharge.
