As is always the case, the start of a new year brings us another incredible showing from the tech industry at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Further deepening the integration of technology into our lives, the world’s innovators in fitness, home security, automobiles, and more delivered truly stunning products to the show floor in Las Vegas. Join us as we explore 5 tech-fueled debuts from this year’s show.
Home fitness has long been a staple space for many homes around the world. Companies like NordicTrack and ProForm have been producing exercise equipment for in-home use, but when Peloton and MIRROR burst on to the scene in the last decade, these brands showed fitness enthusiasts how they could bring workout classes home with them like never before.
In 2020 Amazfit, known for their fitness wearables, introduced their “Home Studio” offering. Debuted at CES, the Amazfit Home Studio features an immersive 43” HD Screen and 3D TOF camera system, high-end slat belt treadmill, surround sound customized JBL speakers, and classes on-demand.
According to Nielsen, the average American spends more than 1,800 hours a year watching TV. It’s no surprise that with numbers like that, TV and TV-connected device manufacturers often play a large role at CES; this year was no different. Among the many entries in this category, Samsung’s cutting-edge 8K QLED line offers a true glimpse into the next generation of ultra-high definition.
Shockingly thin, with remarkable sound technology and built-in AI, these 8K sets represent a strong example of a household name pushing the envelope in what’s possible in their field.
Whether you are a commuter, collector, or self-advertised “gear head,” automobiles are an undeniable part of our lives. While companies like Tesla are focused on revolutionizing the industry itself, others are looking to make an already luxurious or enjoyable experience all the more so. Enter the Lamborghini Huracán EVO – the Italian luxury car maker’s tech and power driven dream car.
Starting at $267,000 and available now, this Alexa-enabled powerhouse of a car goes from 0-60mph in less than 3 seconds and has a top speed of 202mph.
Most stats place a home burglary occurring every 13 seconds in the United States – this unsurprisingly places home security high on the list of must-haves for home owners. Acquired by Amazon in 2018 for more than $1 billion, Ring offers doorbells, cameras, and whole-home security systems – all of which are among the more popular choices when looking into home security options. With an impressive setup on the CES show floor, Ring widened their already broad offering of smart-home tech.
Ring introduced their smart LED bulb and hub, solar-powered external lights, the Access Controller Pro for opening gates remotely, and hinted at their new X-Line – a premium offering with more details to come.
Rest and relaxation are chief among human necessities – people recharge in many different ways, but for most, the time we spend in the shower is an easy way to replenish energy and reflect. Kohler seeks to improve the time you spend in the shower with their Moxie Voice – a smart speaker crossed with a shower head.
Built with the quality Kohler is famous for, this sleek-looking shower head’s speakers are powered by the audiophiles over at Harmon Kardon. Head on over to their site and sign up for to be notified when this product is available.
