CES Preview - Part 1

By Robert Sanborn
CES comes again. The show formerly known as the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas will probably have over 175,000 people visiting and space that would take up the equivalent of 42 US football fields in size; including the end zones.

But you have to love it, Christmas is definitely coming early to computer junkies everywhere and here is a sneak peek at some of the things that is catching my eye. Doesn't mean I will go looking for them on the show floor but someone somewhere thought they were good ideas. The other thing I notices is the number of companies that are funded via the web based cloud funding is growing by leaps and bounds. Some of the things I read about I know won't ever see the light of day but they convince thousands of people to contribute in the Go Fund Me rounds. Most of the text will be from the press releases.

What follows is a fun sampling of what will be at the show.

Imagine a world where the floors and carpet in your entire home remain dust-free without any manual labor, optimum purity is ensured in the air you breathe, and you can easily monitor unsuspecting activity remotely, whether caused by an intruder or your rebellious teenager… Thanks to global robotics brand ECOVACS, this dream will be made a reality with its new home service robot, the UNIBOT, debuting at CES 2017
