It’s no secret that I am a giant tech nerd. If there is a device or program that will save me even 10% of the required time to complete a task is an irresistible lure to me. This is why the Consumer Electronics Show was a literal wonderland for me. If it requires a Bluetooth connection or charges via a USB 2.0 port then I am all over it. Teeny tiny drones I can send over the office cubicle walls to torment my boys at the office? I’m all over it. Little productivity dice which allow you to track your productive time and automatically export the time-sheets to the boss who is spending his time practicing his putting game in his office ad not actually supervising anything at all. Heck yeah!
The new year signals an opportunity to delve into all of the fascinating technology that has been brewing behind the scenes at some of the biggest corporations around the world. The most exciting products are usually put out by little shops headed up by an engineer who is obsessed with one small first-world problem and has leveraged all of their scientific and mathematical aptitudes to the most efficient way possible.
Every year CES is held in Vegas at any of a few rotting hotels bidding for the opportunity to host almost a hundred and twenty thousand attendees, just under five thousand vendors all looking to share their new products with the world, what better place to experience everything that is up and coming in my favorite industry?
If you want to go you should register in September, the hotel space sells out quick and there are endless wonders to experience at the consumer electronics show. I’ll see you there!
