CES 2016 Las Vegas preview: From drones, cars, robots to intelligent jewelries
2016 Consumer Electronics Show is attracting worldwide attention. A large number of products from different manufactures are being talked about. The amazing aspect of this yearâ€™s CES is the fact that not just product inventories have gone up, there are other changes too.
The products seem to have become smarter, nothing new as it has been happening year after the year. Drones, cars, robots, next generation jewelry are on display in a large number. Besides home appliances are also getting unprecedented attention along with TVs.
This year there are as many as 3,600 manufacturers who are exhibiting products at Las Vegas, USA. There is no denying the fact that we are likely to witness innovation across a range of sectors, from health care to autos, connected homes, virtual reality and gaming.
While talking about the prospects at the CES 2016m Gartner analyst Brian Blau says, â€œThere are always a couple of winners at CES, and sometimes there are the sleepers that turn out to be the cool thingâ€. But Blau said the innovations are “often evolutionary, not revolutionary.” Televisions will play starring roles at the show as usual, with giants such as Samsung, Sony, LG and Vizio among contenders in a market rapidly shifting to ultra-high definition.
One thing that is gaining lots of attention at the CES 2016 is drone. Drones are expected to make a splash at CES, where an Unmanned Systems Marketplace has doubled in size from a year earlier to cover 25,000 square feet. Blau while talking about dronesâ€™ increasing appeal says, â€œIf you want to make it popular with consumers you have to make it relatively easy to use and foolproofâ€¦And that is what a lot of drone manufacturers have been doing.” Electronics makers are also using building smart technology into all manner of devices, allowing them to adapt to how people use them, responding to voice or gesture, for example.
One of the top tech leaders Apple does not officially attend CES, but smart household products tuned to the technology giant’s HomeKit and controlled by iPhones were expected to be plentiful. Samsung and Google-owned Nest were also expected to make moves to be at the centre of smart homes, where the market is vexed by the lack of a single standard or system for devices to speak with each other.
