The technology-addict side of the Internet is abuzz right now over CES and all of the promising (and some of the not-so-promising) developments in the field of consumer electronics. In case you missed it, or if you’re just addicted to CES coverage, we’ve collected some of our favorite summaries of what went on last week in Vegas.
Ad Council’s very own Laurie Keith attended CES and showed us the year’s coolest technology and shared some tips and tricks for any first time attendees with her article published on Marketing Land. If you plan on attending CES in the future, you don’t want to miss this first-timer’s take on the experience.
High-tech gadgets are cool and all, but what really makes futuristic devices so fascinating are their hyper-modern, smooth designs. It’s one of the reasons why Apple has been a mainstay on the consumer electronics scene for more than three decades, and why Tesla’s cars remain so sought after. WIRED’s take on CES reflects the understanding that the best cutting-edge products need to look good too. From LG’s 4-millimeter-deep television display to the charming home assistant robot Kuri, CES 2017 had plenty of features to feast your eyes on.
We appreciate CNET’s extensive—and eye-catching—photo albums of our favorite displays. So much of the CES fun is in experiencing the visual abundance of sleek new technology and CNET, with its compilations of next-gen cars and hybrid laptops, delivered.
Target offered a unique look at CES, as told through the eyes of some of their leaders. It’s not the first CES rodeo for many of these Target execs, and their insight helps contextualize how much technology has grown in the last decade and where it will progress in the future. Hearing industry vets raving over voice technology and AI Integration is a sign that these technologies are right around the corner.
Another great aspect of CES is the ability to dive into an industry niche. Eater.com gives us their understandably kitchen-oriented opinion, with examinations of selectively heated counter tops and smartphone-controlled toasters. This kind of wrap-up usefully covers new ground while most of the CES coverage remains focused on the more glamorous showcases.
