Happy birthday CES trade fair! This year, it’s the 50th anniversary for the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. When you celebrate half-a-century of rolling out the newest and latest tech concepts for personal use, it’s either big or go home. This year will not disappoint.
Now, on to the good stuff… What new products are expected to roll out at CES 2017?
CES, 2017 big item: Self-driving vehicles. BMW, Intel, and Mobileye plan to show off their self-driving cars.
If you’re coming from Arizona, Pittsburgh, PA, Nevada, or Florida perhaps you’ve already seen some of these products debut on public roads via Uber. Uber has been using self-driving vehicles for a while now and with some success. Due to the highly-successful business opportunity this has presented in terms of mobilizing non-licensed pedestrians, General Motors has begun modeling for a self-driving vehicle this previous year, look for working prototypes at CES.
Hoverboards will be on display at CES, 2017.
Now, you might be asking yourself why these products will be available, they’ve been in public use for over a year now. This early debut was very possibly due to the push to make sure product release dates aligned with Back to the Future reference dates (October 21st, 2015). Product lines were faulty at best. Swagtron, leading manufacturer in the Hoverboard concept, has put in some major effort to reconfigure their original product (Swagtron T1) design in hopes to prevent an “explosive entrance.”
Expect to see more Virtual Reality concepts at CES, 2017, Las Vegas.
Here’s why virtual reality will make sure a huge rollout at CES this year. In a direct quote pulled from DW.com, President of the Consumer Technology Association, Gary Shapiro says the following:
“Virtual reality is changing the game for a variety of industries including health care, agriculture, manufacturing and business… Doctors are using VR to enhance traditional therapies, architects use VR to design stronger buildings and travel agencies are using it to simplify vacation planning.”
Taking it up a notch and giving the Wow! effect, I have to say anyone attending the event must rush to see “virtual reality sneakers.” Yes, you’re reading that right. We all know virtual reality and drones were some of the hottest gifts this past holiday season, but just seeing your surroundings isn’t enough. This product ups the ante a bit. They want you to be able to feel your virtual surroundings. Expect more in terms of wearables at the CES 2017 trade fair.

CES claims less is more. Certainly true for some. In this case, there’s a rush for wireless.
According to TheVerge.com, it’s audio devices. Apple has finally begun to roll out its Bluetooth Airpods; and with New Year’s resolutions in full swing, we know you’re looking for the latest in sports technology. Be sure to keep an eye out for the Bose SoundSport Pulse Wireless. Soundguys.com is giving the product a 4-out-of-5 star rating. Read more for further info.
