A Techonomist’s View of CES

I’ve been to CES more times than I can count. The bright lights, loud music, bustling executives held up by groups of awestruck consumers—the CES show floor has always felt like Rockefeller Center during the holidays. This year, it was hard not to be impressed with the booths from Samsung, LG, Sharp, and Panasonic showing bigger, higher-definition televisions, but to me, it was the smaller and extremely innovative companies that were most exciting.

With the explosion of the Internet of Everything, it seemed like every company was displaying a new connected device. In my “Internet of Infants” story, I talk about two of the more interesting products, the Kolibree toothbrush and SensibleBaby. Both connected devices gather data and deliver insights aimed at making your life better.

It’s hard to stay in Vegas and not play, and I’m not talking about the blackjack table. I had the opportunity to explore some cool new kid-oriented gadgets from Orbotix and Parrot that are teaching youngsters about programming, robotics, and engineering principles in fun and innovative ways. You can find more about those in my story, “Tech Toys at CES: More Than Meets the Eye.”
