CES 2020: Day one

January 07, 2020

We have a team roaming the massive Las Vegas Convention Center today at the Consumer Electronics Show, better known as CES. We'll be adding to this blog post throughout the day as we find cool stuff to share.

Marking urban mobility smart

Hyundai is re-imagining urban transport with its Smart Mobility Solution that features customized "Purpose Built Vehicles" that shuttle people around on the ground while "Urban Air Mobility" vehicles lighten the load on the road by providing personal flying options.

E-bikes are big

For the first time, e-bikes and e-mobility solutions are gathered in the same area of CES. Lots of cool-looking e-bikes from Bird and Jetson prove that it's a trend that's not slowing down.

Eye candy 

There's always a lot of cool things to look at during CES. The revived Victrola brand's pastel, retro digital turntables are always a treat for the eyes. Royole's tree made of flexible AMOLDED color displays was a stunner. And Karma Automotive showed its sexy SC1 Vision concept electric vehicle.

Domo arigato, Mr. Chefboto

Samsung was having its Bot Chef make salads for visitors. There are labor shortages in commercial kitchens in many markets, but home use for something like this seems like a stretch.

Security with privacy

This cool little burglary detector from Bosch combines different sensor signals such as motion, noise, and pressure. It can be placed anywhere -- home, car, RV, garden shed. The rechargeable battery powers the device for up to two months and it features multiple wireless connectivity options. No camera + no microphone = complete privacy

Digital "ohm"

Technology can help your inner-being, too. There's a cool-looking Yoga visualizer that helps you get in the right alignment for a more effective session. And Panasonic is doing demos of its Human Insight Technology, which can sense and display stress, posture, and state of mind.
