This annual Las Vegas based event is the canary in the cage for what might be ahead as manufacturers and wannabe’s show off the kit they have innovated and want to sell in the years ahead.
In this weeks radio segment Ted of 6PR Perth and I discuss the many things CES which this year seems to come in 5 basic flavors – 3D, PC tablets, smartphones, connected appliances and video games, it is also the first year we have seen car and gaming manufacturers as major exhibitors.
What’s interesting for me is that we are seeing a true divergence of technology with so many devices and applications sharing common tech and spilling over between themselves. There is a plethora of toys on show that encourage us to take our tech into the home, into the office, into the car, into the streets and share it and play it seamlessly one device to another, one location to another.
This is the commercial mainstream beginning of an attitude where the device is not as important anymore, but what is is that we have continuous seamless access to our digital life wherever, whenever and however we find ourselves.
