For more than 50 years, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) has been a venue to highlight creativity and innovation. Often coined, “the most influential tech event in the world” CES dares to imagine the future. Although the emergence of Omicron and ongoing COVID-19 health and safety concerns reshaped this year's show, technology game changers still emerged with the usual futuristic flair.
We would like to share our top 5 favourites from CES 2022:
1. Solar Shingle
Grab your nail gun and go solar! Timberline Solar Energy Shingles can be nailed directly to your roof, making solar simple and considerably cheaper than traditional solar panels. Competing with Tesla’s solar tile, this innovative product incorporates solar technology into standard roofing materials and products.
2. EV Tsunami
Not renowned as an auto show, this year electric vehicles and advancing auto technology took centre stage at CES. Imagine electric pickup trucks with a range exceeding 400 miles. The Chevy Silverado EV promises to deliver. The only thing missing is a chart topping country song about a guy, his beer and an electric truck.
3. OrCam MyEye Pro
Accessibility products are on the rise, and leading the charge is the OrCam MyEye Pro. Designed to clip on to eyeglasses, this clever device helps visually impaired people read and identify faces. Used by tens of thousands of people around the world, MyEye conveys visual information audibly, and in real-time.
4. La Parcelle
Taking community gardens to new heights, “La Parcelle” by Agrove is a modular vertical cultivation system connected to 2 apps. This innovative product combines urban agriculture and digital technology to create sustainable and collaborative community gardens.
5. Motion Pillow 3
We saved the best for last! Goodbye snoratorium - Hello Motion Pillow 3. Don’t lose another night’s sleep listening to your partner snore. This revolutionary pillow senses the user’s head position, detects the sound of snoring, and triggers airbags inside the pillow to inflate. Once the sleeper’s head position is optimized, the snoring "magically" stops.
