One of Avram's favorite sayings is, "We're in the business of interesting, not good." This is an important distinction that makes his view of the tech journalism industry far more fun. Often times we discuss products that are unique and strange, but not necessarily things that are great. It's important to know that there are products out in the wild that are bad ideas, poorly made, security or privacy problems, and more. With a focus on the interesting, Avram helps to bring some of those products to light, pointing out some products that should definitely be skipped and some that you should consider.

Morphée brings the results of sleep research into your home to improve your sleep quality.
Kids love video games, there's no doubt about that. However, a number of studies have shown that constant screen time can lead to developmental issues. It can cause issues with blurred reality, social interactions, and more. As additional information has become available, some people have worked hard to develop products that help engage kids with traditional-style toys and games without the need for screens. One such product is Jooki, a combination of toy and music without the screen.

These devices are small, lightweight, and easy to maneuver. Nearly anyone can easily control one of these devices, making it easy for more people to enjoy the snow together.
The past 2 years have completely changed the way we look at public accommodations. In 2019, no one would have thought twice about touching a kiosk that someone had just used. But today, many people look at common surfaces and devices as if they are plague rats. Whether this approach to public spaces is itself healthy or not, it is not going away anytime soon. To help alleviate fears of public or common items, CleanBox has developed a quick and easy way to clean these items.
Over the past few years, the importance of telemedicine has grown significantly. What was once considered forbidden is now commonplace.

This makes it perfect for outdoor use, as it eliminates the need for any connectivity. It is also Bluetooth enabled, so parents can use the accompanying app to control gameplay.
Connected homes have become a normal part of our lives, but they can be more frustrating than helpful. This is because not all of our devices work together. Unless you go out of your way, every item you add to your home uses a different app and runs on a different platform. You might get lucky and have access to them through a service like Alexa or Google Assistant, but that's not guaranteed. Luckily, Homey is here to help literally bridge that gap.

Picture this: you're a few days away from payday, but your car breaks down and you need to fix it right away. You don't have enough money in your checking account to cover the repair, so you take out a high-interest payday loan. A few weeks later, you're hit with another unexpected expense and have to take out another payday loan. This cycle can be incredibly costly and difficult to break free from. But what if there was an easier way? DailyPay is on a mission to build a new financial system that puts an end to expensive payday loans!

Keeping your home secure is important to anyone, whether you own or rent. But, traditional locks require you to carry keys and are only usable when you are in front of them. The ability to check the status of your door, or even let in a family member who has forgotten their key is a big advantage. That is what the Kwikset Halo smart locks are all about.

Showcase PCs represent the pinnacle of this trend, taking the idea of turning the gaming PC into an art form to its logical conclusion. The custom 3D and 4D designs create a truly immersive experience, transporting you into the game itself.
Over the past few years, we have all become more aware of the common items that we touch every day. Whether it's the buttons on an elevator, the handle on a public toilet, or even the kiosk at your favorite fast food joint, we touch a lot of things that everyone else and their children have touched. And you absolutely know that those elevator buttons haven't been cleaned. How can we solve this issue? IMUZAK has got the solution.
Do you want to invest in the stock market but don't know where to start? Trying to understand the ins and outs of the market can be difficult. How do you know what stocks are going to do well, and which are going to fail? unless you're a full-time investor, you can't possibly keep track of every trend and stock on the market. That's where Wizest comes in - giving you a closer look into stocks, bonds, and more.

Their mission is to make the Earth more ecological by reducing the use of insecticides and chemicals. Their solution will enable many countries to save resources while protecting their citizens' health in a natural and sustainable way.
One of the more difficult things about running an online retailer is the images. One of the most difficult industries online is fashion. Every product has to have so many phones, and you can only go into so much detail with the number of models at your disposal. While some industries, such as the automotive industry, have gone nearly entirely computer-generated imagery, fashion has not been able to follow suit. Now, with the work done by Lalaland.ai, that is all changing.
If you've ever had to do research for a science class in school, you know just how difficult it can be. Wikipedia is not a great source because of inaccuracies and information biases. Scientific papers are full of information but can be difficult to read unless you're already an expert in the subject matter. Of course, you aren't, or you wouldn't be in the class. This is one of the problems that Alviss.ai is trying to address.
Over the centuries, the experience of captaining a boat has remained generally unchanged. Sure, new technology has changed the way you interact with the controls, and new sensors have made it easier to avoid dangers. GPS technology has made long travels safer and more direct. But, Brunswick Corporation wants to improve the experience with a suite of new tools for the helm.
In these times of chaos, many companies are turning to telecommuting as a way to keep their employees safe. However, with so many people now returning to the office, it can be difficult to find an open parking spot, a desk in the office, or an available conference room. Sharvy is here to help! It's is a digital solution that allows employees to reserve parking spaces, workstations, and cafeteria spots in advance. This will make it easier for employees to find a spot when they come into the office, and will also support new hybrid working methods.
As the world gets more complex, keeping track of our babies' every need can be more difficult. Some parents are working long hours either away from home or in the home, while others are trying to just maintain the home. It's simply impossible to be with them every second of the day. That's where Chillax Care comes in - a company with products and services to help you keep an eye on your baby while also helping them to grow without being with them every minute.
Of course, we all want to know if our pets are happy and healthy, but how can we be sure that we are doing enough?
Every year we get a front-row seat to the latest and greatest pet care items. And many times, what we see are merely reinventions or simple improvements upon tech and gadgets that already exist. But this year we were able to witness a brand new use of technology that just may end up being a game-changer when it comes to the health of our beloved pets.
Ok, so yeah, we know... you can get a Bluetooth speaker just about anywhere, nowadays. They come in all shapes, sizes, and prices, with varying degrees of quality and features. Honestly, you'd think that a tech broadcast like us might even be pretty sick of them by now. But honestly, that couldn't be further from the truth. It would seem that we just can't seem to get enough of them because we know that each one can provide a different experience depending on the situation.
One thing's for sure, after learning more about this one, we like what we see. So, if you are looking for a Bluetooth speaker that is portable, durable, and boasts fantastic audio performance?

They are focused on spatial visualization, in other words, making holograms a reality. This is something that has been dreamed about for years, but Dimenco is making it happen right now. With their cutting-edge software and hardware, they are changing the way we experience simulated reality.
Over the past few years, the idea of getting things - anything - delivered directly to your door has grown in popularity. The internet has given us access to goods and services all over the world, while the change in environment has made many of us stay in the house much of the time. To address this altered reality, Ottonomy has developed an exciting line of autonomous robots that can deliver nearly anything straight to your home or office.
Do you like to push your body to the limits? Do you strive for excellence in your sport? If so, then CORE by greenTEG AG is the health tech for you!

If you own a business, you know that there are some jobs that are really difficult to feel like you understand. Managing facility services, such as janitorial needs, can be a real challenge. For most of us, we simply have to trust that the job is getting done. We're not around when it happens, and we don't quite understand all of the details that go into the job. For those that provide the service, it's even more important to know exactly what is going on at your clients' offices. Fortunately, TonDone has created a product that gives everyone a better look into what is and is not happening in their offices.
What if you could protect your belongings with the touch of a finger? It would mean not having to carry a key at the gym or pool. It would mean not having to copy your house key every time you have guests over. BenjiLock has made all of this and more possible, with its innovative fingerprint technology that can be used to secure everything from bikes to closets.
When it comes to appliances, things sometimes go wrong. And when they do, you're left with two options: try to fix it yourself or call a technician. If you've ever tried to fix an appliance yourself, you know that it can be difficult and time-consuming - not to mention frustrating. That's where mayday Pro comes in.
If you've ever been around someone with a mental disorder, such as Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia, you know it can be hard for everyone involved. Watching a loved one disappear into a fog of confusion and often anger is emotionally distressing for the caretakers and family. Unfortunately, there has not been any way to detect these issues early on with efficiency, making it difficult to treat before the disease progresses beyond repair. However, iMediSync has a new product to do just that.
It's no secret that the world is getting brighter and more color, thanks in part to companies like Xtreme Cables and the Monster Smart Illumenessence line of LED products. Unline most major rands, the Illuminessence product line is designed to be fun, durable, and inexpensive. In fact, when compared against other major brands. the Illuminessence products regularly come in under their competitors. Plus, the lineup has a number of unique products and partnerships.
For content creators, one of the biggest issues can be ensuring that what the end consumer hears and sees is exactly what you intended. In theaters, this problem has been mostly remedied by creating industry standards that apply across theater chains and projector manufacturers. However, as more media has moved to home viewing, the experience changes significantly, depending on the hardware being used - particularly the television. This is exactly the problem that Pixelworks is looking to solve with TrueCut Motion.
Health technology is far from a new technology category. We've seen fitness trackers, connected scales, and a lot more. However, some companies look for ways to set themselves apart from the competition, and RENPHO has a few important differences: price, variety, and features.
The Internet of Things creates a lot of benefits for individuals and businesses. You can control your home with your voice, or even from your phone while away. You can check on the status of package deliveries, appliances, and even work projects. But, IoT also creates a lot of challenges for developers - transmitting and processing the data collected from these devices. That's where On-Site product and AI-Fields from TEIXON comes in.
People are taking more notice of the quality of the air around them. Whether it be pollutants from vehicles in the city or illness spread through the air, what we breathe in is more important than ever. This is where Atmofizer comes in - making technology to help improve the air quality in your home or office.
The last two years have created a lot of new scenarios for the world. Particularly, the business world has had to adapt to a lot of adjusted scenarios. Much work has begun to be from home, rather than in offices. This forced IT to change the way they think of their corporate networks to allow for greater variability, while also protecting data. But, the biggest part of industries to be affected by the altered way of thinking has been events, like CES. Our good friend Steve Winter from Brotman-Winter-Fried discusses some of the changes and how to deal with them.
When you've got a newborn baby, it can be really difficult to keep track of all of the things you need to do. You've got to feed them, with a bottle, breastfeeding, or a combination of the two. More importantly, you need to track whether or not you've actually done it. You've also got to keep track of when they sleep, diaper changes, and even medications. You can keep track of it in a book, but that requires carrying another thing around with you. Cubtale is here to help you track your baby's routine and daily care tasks.
If you are a small or medium-sized business, you know how difficult it can be to put together all of the data you need to get the most out of tax law. There are tons of credits available to you, but you must know what qualifies so you can avoid a costly and time-consuming IRS audit. You can pay a tax professional to constantly monitor your activities to look for things like R&D tax credits, but that might cost the company more than what it will get back in credits. Now there's REV by Leyton to help you out.
If you're like most people, you probably dread the idea of going to the optometrist. It's always a hassle to find time in your schedule, and then you have to deal with trying on all those glasses until you find the perfect pair. Fittingbox is changing all that. This company has developed cutting-edge technology that allows you to try on glasses virtually, in real-time. You can even do it from your desktop or mobile device!
For decades, we've been promised flying cars. In The Jetsons, we were told that flying cars were not new and had been around for years. But, the show takes place in 2062 - only 40 years from now. So, where are the flying cars? We've seen a few at CES in the past few years, but MACA is poised to make them far more interesting and usable.
Whether you are new to the crypto game or have been involved since the beginning, protecting your investment from theft needs to be your top priority. Every year, billions of dollars worth of crypto assets are stolen from online wallets at exchanges and on personal computers and phones. The only way to trust protect your assets is to keep them in a place where the outside world can't access them - cold storage. Keepser Cold Storage is a cold storage solution designed to grow with you and the industry.
As a company, you've got data. Every company has data - and a lot of it. But, trying to troll through everything that's ever been created in order to turn it into something useful can be a challenge. One employee in the finance department has created a spreadsheet that contains the exported revenue broken down per employee. Another employee in marketing has broken the same numbers down by department. Perfect Memory is designed to help you bring this data together in order to make more informed decisions.
If you have ever bought a name-brand product online, you know how hard it can be to verify that the product is real. Even in retail stores, you can't always guarantee that what's on the shelf is the real thing. And that's just new - what about when you buy something second-hand at a thrift store or on eBay? It's a complete gamble whether it's a genuine product or a knockoff. That's where Veritise comes in, with a platform to help you verify the authenticity of a product.
If you're like most business owners, you're always on the lookout for new and innovative ways to increase revenue and stay ahead of the competition. One of the most promising areas of growth in today's market is artificial intelligence (AI). But implementing AI solutions can be expensive, especially if you need to purchase custom silicon chips. ArchiTek has developed a new chip called the ArchiTek Intelligence Pixel Engine (aIPE), which helps to solve this problem.
When traveling internationally, one of the biggest challenges is the language barrier. But, in modern business, interacting with people in other languages has become a normal part of the process. So, how do you communicate with someone who does not speak the same language as you? That's where the Ambassador Interpreter from Waverly Labs comes in.
If you're reading this, there's a good chance you've heard of 8K video. But what is 8K video? Simply put, 8K refers to the resolution of the video - in other words, the number of pixels. 8K video has a resolution of 7680 x 4320, which is 16 times the resolution of 1080p HD! With consumer interest in 8K on the rise, now is the time for businesses to get on board and capitalize on this growing market. That's where the the 8K Association (8KA) comes in.
As 8K content becomes more prevalent, it's important to have an organization that promotes the advancement of 8K video. The 8K Association is dedicated to accelerating industry-wide adoption of 8K content, products, and services. Their mission is to ensure the 8K ecosystem thrives, and they're doing this by establishing Work Groups to provide information about the state of the 8K ecosystem to consumers, organizations, and standards development groups.
Do you ever feel like you're carrying around a bag of bricks when you have to bring your house keys, car keys, and wallet with you everywhere you go? What about all of the passwords that you're required to remember? And worst of all, they're constantly changing because your company wants you to change it every 45 days. And they're getting longer! How in the world are we supposed to keep track of all of these things? Everykey is here to help eliminate as many of these issues as possible.
For generations, people across the globe have looked into the night sky and dreamed that some part of them would one day be able to go there. Over the past few years, the ability to purchase a ticket to physically travel to space has become a reality, though the costs are still incredibly high. However, for some, the ability to have a piece of their legacy in space is still a realistic possibility, thanks to the educational program at Higher Orbits Foundation.
If you have a smart speaker, or you use the assistant on your phone, you know just how hard it can be to get it to understand what you want. Either it misunderstands what you have said or you didn't use the very robotic language it was expecting. For a person, the difference between "turn on Neon" and "power on Neon" are exactly the same, but Alexa may only understand one of them. But, with technology from Fluent.ai, that could be a thing of the past.
If you have a pet, you know that it can be difficult to understand what they want. Their vocal capabilities are limited and tend to just be whines and similar-sounding noises. But, as all pet owners know, these animals are still very smart. They understand what we are saying and are aware of different wants and needs. So, why can't we find a reliable way of communicating with our pets? FluentPet has a solution to this problem using small buttons and recorded voices.
Thanks to Meta (formerly Facebook), the term metaverse became the hot new buzzword. But, what is the metaverse and how does it work? For most, it is believed to require special hardware to create an immersive experience. However, that is not always the case. In fact, MetaVRse has a concept that will allow you to join in right from your tablet or computer.
Every aspect of our lives is getting smarter. From our cars to our lightbulbs, we have the ability to turn things on and off, lock and unlock devices, and open and close our doors. One company that is getting serious about connecting one of the most high-profile aspects of our homes, our door locks, is SECURAM Systems, which has introduced a new smart lock for the home.
Bleujour unveiled a new PC that is sure to capture a rapid and steadily growing market: the traveling gamer. To be specific, the MOVE Ultimate gaming PC was specifically designed to be powerful, upgradable, and also portable! The MOVE Ultimate is built on Intel's brand new Modular Computing Systems platform, the Intel NUC Elements Extreme, and Bleujour was sure to keep compatibility with long form-factor graphics cards in mind.
This PC is built to be mobile and part of that is possible due to being built on Intel's brand new Modular Computing Systems platform, the Intel NUC Elements Extreme. This allows the MOVE Ultimate to have powerful components, giving the consumer choice of said components, and fitting them all into a small form-factor chassis. This design choice also allows you to have a powerful gaming and streaming PC that doesn't take up too much space on your desk. We are becoming used to the idea of massive, powerful machines, stationary gaming machines but Bleujour is aiming to shake up those norms.
Modern life can be stressful. We've got work and, for many, commuting a decent distance. Commuting means traffic, and traffic means stress. We've got responsibilities at home, from family responsibilities to mowing the yard and washing the car. Plus, we know that social media is simply a stress generator for most people. It can be really difficult to find a place where we can have a few minutes of pure relaxation and pampering, but Human Touch is here with a solution.
If you're like most people, you probably don't enjoy going to the doctor's office for a urine test. But what if there was a way to take those tests at home, in just two minutes, and get personalized insights and recommendations based on your results? Vivoo is your personal solution to this problem and more with its at-home test strips and mobile phone-based analysis platform.
If you have ever dealt with a chronic illness, you know that the amount of medication you have to keep track of can be a challenge. Some in the morning, some in the evening, and then sometimes pills in the middle of the day. Trying to remember which pills to take at which time is not easy and usually requires reading every bottle every time. Luckily EveryDose (previously Groove Health) is here to take some of the challenges off of your shoulders.
If you're a caretaker for someone taking a lot of medications, it can be just as challenging. It gets more frustrating when you can't be physically near the other person. With EveryDose, friends and family get access to the medication information, as well as the ability to help manage the other person's medications.
If you're a content creator, you know how important video can be to your success. But, unless you are specifically focused on creating video, it can be a real challenge to turn your talents in that direction. Filming a short video can be easy enough, but what about the editing? That's where Pictory comes in, bringing AI directly into the video editing process.

CES 2022, owned and operated by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), is technically still planned for January 5-8 in Las Vegas, Nevada, but those plans seem to be falling apart around them. As the Omicron variant of COVID-19 has become the dominant strain in the US and abroad, numbers are spiking across the globe. While the statistics currently suggest that Omicron is significantly less dangerous for most people, it isn't exactly safe. In addition, many countries are beginning lockdowns again, meaning that international companies are struggling to attend the event in person. Because of this, it's looking more and more like the majority of CES 2022 will be virtual, reminiscent of CES 2021.
As of now, the company says that CES 2022 will still happen in person, though they are leaving it open to future cancellation. On the website, there is a bold statement saying,
We are actively tracking the emerging news and science around the new Omicron variant. We will continue to monitor and adjust our plans and health protocols as necessary.
We are also tracking the news and environment, as things are already changing quickly. We're just 2 weeks away from the start of the event, but companies are pulling out at an alarming rate. Both exhibitors and media companies are deciding to interact with the event remotely, suggesting a trend that could end with the full cancelation of the in-person event and a shift to an all-digital format. Here are some of the companies that have already pulled out.
Exhibitors are the lifeblood of CES. Without them, there is no reason to attend, as there is nothing to see, cover, or talk and write about.
December 21, 2021 - Amazon has announced that it will not have a presence at the event. Amazon traditionally supports its partners with product experts, as well as having its own exhibits. In addition to supporting partners who use Alexa in their devices, the company also has its large offering of products, from Echo to Ring. The company said in a statement,
Due to the quickly shifting situation and uncertainty around the Omicron variant, we will no longer have an on-site presence at CES.
December 22, 2021 - While the company did not have a planned large presence this year. The only AT&T branded booth is 8763 in the North Hall as part of the Health & Wellness section of the show floor. The telecom and media divisions of the brand did not have a planned presence at all. Now, the company will skip the show entirely.
December 21, 2021 - The media giant, which owns iHeartRadio, has decided to pull its participation entirely. The company had planned several events, the primary was to be a concert at Area15, featuring Swedish House Mafia.
December 21, 2021 - Nvidia is one of the pillars on which modern CES events are built. The company is involved in so many aspects of emerging technology that their absence might be felt the most. Someone close to the conference described the situation, stating,
Nvidia canceling on CES is like Moderna canceling at a healthcare conference.
The company still plans to deliver a "special address" virtually, similar to their presentation at CES 2021.
December 21, 2021 - T-Mobile is one of the featured companies for CES 2022, with a planned keynote speech from new CEO Mike Sievert. The company has announced that it will no longer be participating in the event in-person, with the company stating,
After careful consideration and discussion, T-Mobile has made the difficult decision to significantly limit our in-person participation at this year's Consumer Electronics Show. While we are confident that CES organizers are taking exhaustive measures to protect in-person attendees and we had many preventative practices in place as well, we are prioritizing the safety of our team and other attendees with this decision. T-Mobile will continue to serve as a CES sponsor and title sponsor of the DRL Championship Race but the vast majority of our team will not be traveling to Las Vegas. Additionally, T-Mobile CEO Mike Sievert will no longer be offering a keynote in-person or virtually. T-Mobile's entire team looks forward to an in-person CES 2023, which we hope includes an on-stage keynote in front of a live audience. We extend our sincere thanks to the entire CES staff for their hard work during these challenging times.
So, while remaining as a featured partner and sponsor, the company is pulling back. Even the planned keynote has been cancelled entirely, not even planning to deliver it virtually.

The social media companies have a large impact on the value of CES. Clearly, a lot of the news during the show is made possible because of the social media platforms. But, in addition, a lot of products also feature social media integration.
December 21, 2021 - Meta has an important presence at CES. Not only do they own and operate Facebook and Instagram, but they also own the formerly named Oculus. Many of the companies showing off virtual reality (VR) products are relying on the Oculus hardware and software to do so. The company announced its intentions to skip in-person participation and are looking at how to participate virtually.
Out of an abundance of caution and care for our employees, we won't be attending CES in-person due to the evolving public health concerns related to Covid-19.
December 21, 2021 - Previously, Pinterest had planned to have a limited presence at the show before Omicron. However, with the changing landscape, the company has announced that they will skip the event altogether. Pinterest did not have an official presence planned for the show.
December 21, 2021 - Twitter's presence at the company is usually pretty high-profile, though this year did not have any official relationship with the show. The branding has been seen in the main courtyard of the Las Vegas Convention Center, as well as throughout the show floor. In a statement, the company announced,
Due to the spike in Covid cases across the country in the past week, we've decided to cancel our in-person presence at CES next month. We'll continue to actively monitor the situation into the new year and find other opportunities to connect with our clients and partners.
