Another Consumer Electronics Show has come and gone so we thought we’d round-up a few trends, innovative (and silly – a selfie brush?!) products and highlights from the show. Did you attend? What were your favorites?
Whirlpool: The connected kitchen continues to be a top trend in the industry and we were impressed by the interactive backsplash that Whirlpool had on display. It acts as an unobtrusive “command center” that displays recipes and posts real time social media feeds as well as weather and news updates. It can also connect to other appliances to indicate when the laundry is done drying. Pretty cool!
Long gone are the standard white appliances and the trend in pattern and color is making its way to your washing machine! Whirlpool also showcased magnetic interchangeable fronts for the washer and dryer that lets consumers match their laundry room decor and color palette.
4K HD Resolution
There was a big jump in resolution this year with Sony, LG and Samsung all showcasing the latest in 4K Ultra High Definition resolution. And with regard to TV’s, thinner and sleeker the better.
Nortek Security and Control Showcased Broan QT showcased its bathroom fan with built-in speaker for music streaming. So you can literally take your music everywhere you go!
We’ve seen 3D printers make a huge splash this past year, but the quality displayed at CES this year was amazing. These printers can make clothes, shoes, and eyewear!
Selfie Brush. Enough said.
You know those times when you need to wash a few items but don’t want to put on an entire load? LG introduced its Washing Machine in a Washing Machine. For only half full loads. Brilliant. Convenient. And energy-efficient.
LG Stainless Steel refrigeration with black coating for avoiding those pesky fingerprints.
Samsung Chef Collection, featuring Tri-Level refrigeration.
Wearable Tech includes watches, bracelets, arm bands etc. and features tracking info related to health and fitness. Other wearable tech gadgets include devices that have small motion sensors to take photos and sync with your mobile device.
Green products and technology were a huge hit. Check out this cell phone case made from completely recycled materials!
And a few other booths we had to check out…
Fuel Cell: The electric car of the future.
