CES 2019 has finished and here is what our Senior Press Officer Ash Scott had to say about her time there…
CES is the place to be with over 1,200 press, analysts and tech fans from all over the world hoping to catch a glimpse of the latest technology, gadgets and product innovations.
It’s renowned for the weird and wonderful, and key themes present once again this year were smart health (primarily U.S focused), the latest smart home developments, and the best in class of new pet robots.
The wonder of Unveiled is that there can be anything from smart apps to aid incontinence to companies that want to break into the market by restocking your beer fridge (say goodbye to dry January). Sadly, there was a lack of Veganuary at CES this year, (clearly they haven’t seen Greggs’ latest stunt) but regardless there were some key themes.
Sleep: We are all clearly having trouble sleeping, from the Hupnos (Perfect Sleep Awaits You) and guaranteeing ‘snore free sleep’ – sign me up, I’m in Las Vegas.
There’s a company called Urgonight that can train your brain to sleep. Just 15 minutes a day and its device will learn your brain waves and train you to sleep better. The headgear is unimposing and you can do it at home (though probably not at work), pair it to an app that trains your brain to engage better in sleep and there you go: a night full of peaceful zzzzzzz.
Can’t go without: Ultimate charging. Imagine having your phone, watch and earphones on your bedroom table all powering up at the same time with one power source! I need one!
Robots: If you’re looking for the cutest thing we’ve seen so far, look to the LOVOT! It is a robot, as they describe it, but it has a sense of life as if it is a living thing. We got to experience it for ourselves, and as human looking for a pet this just might do the trick! So cute!
