Best Of CES 2016

CES in Las Vegas is the world’s big tech coming-out party for the New Year — a supersize circus of gadgetry that both follows major trends in tech and also creates them. It’s never the same year to year, but it’s always a showcase of what’s to come for consumer technology. This year the show made a lasting impression on the approximately 150,000 visitors from more than 150 countries.

This year’s show is no exception for both house and car technology along with lots of improvements in the area of virtual reality, vehicle, drones, tablets, computers along with advancements in smart wearable devices.

So to start off with I’d like to highlight 4 gadgets that can be used at home. And so, if you are at all curious just how many carbs and calories are sitting on your dinner plate? Well, the SCiO food scanner can tell you that. A new pocket-sized Bluetooth-enabled gadget that scans and reveals the nutritional value of your meal by scanning its chemical makeup. The device uses technology called ‘near-infrared spectroscopy’ (the analysis of how molecules interact with light) to determine fat content and carbs found in food. It’s available for pre-order at $249 USD, and it comes with a mobile app that is free to download but requires a monthly $10 fee. You can find more information about this device at:

Next is The Hydrao Smart Shower head. Basically, it’s a replacement shower head that connects to your iPhone or iPad via Bluetooth and using their app you can set light alerts based on how much water you want to use. So, at each interval, LED lights will light up in three different colors on the shower head to remind you how much water you’re using. Making it even more cool is a tiny turbine built inside of it that uses the water running through the shower head to generate enough energy to power the lights and it’s Bluetooth connectivity. It’s available for pre-order at $99USD, and you can find further information at:

Samsung’s Family Hub Refrigerator combines a massive 21.5-inch, full HD tablet-like touchscreen built right into the fridge door. It features a pair of cameras on the inside that can monitor the fridge’s contents to let you know when you are out of items so you can then access, buy , and get delivered more food via your MasterCard . You can also push your photos, stream music, and check your email and weather on the front screen. It will cost about $5,000 USD and should be ready to ship sometime in May. For more information you can check out their website at:

Finally, is the Owlet. This device is a wearable baby sock that monitors your infant’s heart rate and oxygen levels and alerts you when things get troublesome to prevent accidental suffocation. It’s going to $250 USD and you can find more information at


CES 2016 gave some amazing new glimpses of current and near-future TV technology. LG and Samsung are the real giants of the global TV marketplace, and both showed exceedingly cool, highly compelling takes on how thin and big-screen TV tech could evolve over the next few years.

And so, first on my list is LG’s small 18-inch rollable TV takes my favorite TV technology. The ultra-thin display acts more like a piece of plastic paper than a television where you can actually roll it up like a newspaper. They are still several years away from having it powered wirelessly but either way, making the displays we use every day lighter and more portable is an inevitable trend.

Finally, I think this might be your favourite Brian. It is the ultimate movie room, man-cave TV. Samsung’s 170-inch modular TV can get as big as you can imagine. It’s composed of multiple modules of LCD screens, each extended to the very edge so when they’re joined together, they create a virtually seamless massive screen. I think of it as Lego TV, and an ingenious way to solve for the problem of shipping gigantic TVs all over the world.
