CES is the world's gathering place for all those who thrive on the business of consumer technologies. It has served as the proving ground for innovators and breakthrough technologies for 50 years - the global stage where next-generation innovations are introduced to the marketplace. Owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), it attracts the world's business leaders and pioneering thinkers.
Technology can seemingly always surprise us, especially at CES 2023. One company that has developed a surprising piece of technology is Algorized, whose new product essentially allows product developers to allow their products to see through walls. While this might seem like a hack in Call of Duty, the technology is real, and it is spectacular.
We've all seen movies where someone smells something, and it transports them to another time or place. Whether it's the smell of freshly baked cookies that takes you back to your childhood or the smell of a summer rainstorm that reminds you of a romantic moment, scent can be a powerful trigger for memories. Now, thanks to OVR Technology's ION3, we can experience smell through our entertainment.
As we get older, it gets more difficult to live on our own. In addition to actual hazards, family concerns can make it even more difficult - for us and our families. Making sure our siblings and children are comfortable and safe can add stress to someone trying to live their lives as normally as possible. Fortunately, thanks to Sedimentum, we've now got technology that can take both of those stresses off of the aging population to allow them to live on their own longer than before.
If you've been in the electronics world for a while, you know that robotic pets have been a popular product category for a long time. However, they generally come with some problems. Generally, they are too expensive, don't do anything actually interesting, or both. One company has tried to tackle this problem for years and has hit upon a robotic companion that people will want - Dog-E from WowWee.
The way we interact with machines has not changed much over the years. We started with a keyboard and later added a mouse. The mouse was augmented by touch, but only for some purposes. All of this means that the way we use computers today is nearly identical to how we interacted with them 40 years ago. However, the types of machines we interact with have changed significantly, and so it is time that our interactions change too. This is the lofty goal that The Tactigon has in its gesture-based controls.
If you are trying to broadcast an event around the globe with multiple unrelated endpoints, the infrastructure can be difficult and expensive. Traditionally, this has required satellites and hard links on both the transmitter and receiver's side. This means that smaller production houses would be unable to take advantage of the ability to transmit to a global audience and also prevent them from being able to receive these feeds, as well. GlobalM has taken this concept and moved it off of satellites and onto the internet.
Playing a videogame is intended to extend the experience of entertainment into a more personal connection. With a movie or TV show or even a play, you watch what is happening and pretend to put yourself into the action. With a videogame, however, you are in control over the experience - sometimes in small ways and others in large ways. However, we're still generally separated from the game in a variety of ways, but Actronika wants to bring you directly into the game experience with Skinetic.
Computers and machinery have gained a lot of abilities over the past few years. Computers can think for themselves with artificial intelligence. Robots can see and hear thanks to cameras and microphones. Together they create the ability for machines to make decisions about their environment and adapt. But, one thing that's missing is the sense of smell. That's where Ball Wave technology comes in.
Children enjoy music and stories, but younger kids need help. Things like CDs or even streaming services require too much interaction and knowledge - plus they usually require a screen. This is where the Toniebox comes in, producing a smart speaker that allows kids to listen to music and stories on their own in a safe and easy way.
VersaWare is on a mission to help you get healthy and save time. They provide users with a culinary ecosystem that is tailored specifically to their health goals. Their recipe-AI and real-time nutrition breakdowns make it easy to create healthy meals quickly and efficiently. With VersaWare, you can finally achieve your health goals without sacrificing your time!
If you travel as often as our team does, you know there are a number of issues that pop up regularly. For example, one day you could be working in a hotel office and the next you're sitting at a table in a coffee bar. But, one thing always remains the same - how do you secure your computer? There are Kensington-style locks, but so many laptops today don't have a lock port (including the one I'm using to write this). This is the space that LapLok is looking to fill.
Too often these days, we are forced into places that are not conducive to conversation. This is exacerbated when you're on the phone or computer. This happens because microphones, in general, do not discriminate between sounds. These microphones pick up whatever sound they hear and push it to the other side of the call. In a loud area, this means it's nearly impossible for the person on the other side of the call to hear anything you say. This is the problem that Skyted is hoping to solve.
Over the past few years, we've seen a lot of companies implement platforms based on blockchain technology. However, these platforms are often not enhanced by the permanent and unalterable nature of the technology. But, there are a lot of places where blockchain technology can be of use, and Parisian company ATBHASH is implementing them for safety and security purposes.
If there is one truth in the fashion world, it is that there are two types of shows: comfortable and fashionable. It seems that no one has been able to combine the two categories into one. Either a woman wears sneakers or heels - and never the two shall cross. However, ALIA (Active Lift in Alignment), has a system that allows them to take incredibly accurate measurements and produce a shoe that is both fashionable and comfortable.
For many people, natural speech can be a challenge. Whether it be because of a stutter or throat cancer, speaking becomes an uncomfortable thing to do. But, through modern technology, there are solutions to help people overcome their speech limitations. Whispp has brought out a technology to help bring natural and normal volume speech capabilities to millions of users.
Since we first encountered BenjiLock in Eureka Park in 2017, the company has changed a lot. Those early days were at a tiny booth with a non-functioning prototype. Before we got to see them again, the company had been on Shark Tank and partnered with Mr. Wonderful Kevin O'Leary. O'Leary put together a partnership to help Founder Robbie Cabral bring the product to market with manufacturing, sales, and more. Today, the company is looking at its next phase in life, including helping to support other startups at CES.
When you work with audio hardware, you know that it can be fragile. This is especially the case when you take something like headphones and put them into a public space, like a school, library, or gaming center. When people don't have to pay for something, they don't have a lot of respect for it. This is known as the tragedy of the commons. However, sometimes a company comes along to tackle these common issues, like TWT Audio.
Digital picture frames are not a new product category. In fact, they've existed nearly as long as LCD screens have been affordable. However, as time has gone on, new features have been added to these products in order to make them easier to use for those to whom we really want to give them. The biggest issue has been giving a photo frame to an older member of the family and never being able to change the photos. The team at Familink looks to fix that with a truly connected device.
Have you ever lost your keys or wallet? Of course you have! And it always happens at just the wrong time. You're running late and headed out the door and your keys are nowhere to be found. Now you've got to spend time that you don't have looking for your keys, making you even later for wherever you're headed. Fortunately, there is an easy way to solve this problem thanks to the team at Chipolo.
For many people, there are medical conditions that require constant active monitoring. Others have needs that can progress in unexpected ways, and whose trajectory can be monitored easily. However, the technology to track these conditions has generally been limited to doctors' offices or companies like Lab Corp. However, in the past few years, the ability to monitor and track a person's health has been miniaturized to the point where we can now do it at home. One company that has been at the forefront of this medical democratization has been Withings.
Over the past decade, it seems that everything has become smart. From lightbulbs to refrigerators, to even glasses, everything is getting smarter. In some cases, the benefits have been obvious, such as being able to control lightbulbs without having to go to a particular place in the room or having special wiring. However, some items being smart have mostly been gimmicky, like glasses. That is until now - as Lighthouse Tech has a new take on the tech, making it a truly useful addition for many users.
These days, we have a lot of sensors in our homes. Nearly everyone has a fire alarm and a carbon monoxide alarm. In addition, we've got motion sensors, security cameras, smart speakers and thermostats with presence detection, and a lot more. But, one threat detection that appears to be missing for no known reason is natural gas detection. New Cosmos USA is looking to change this with the DeNova Detect natural gas detector.
In the last few years, artificial intelligence (AI) has become a major part of the tech industry. From rooting out inappropriate comments on social media to content creation, everything seems to be affected by AI - for better or worse. However, one of the spaces where AI is making a difference for a number of industries is text-to-speech capabilities. One company working to improve this technology is Acapela Group, which announced VoiceAI at CES 2023.
Healthy sleep can be a real challenge. For a lot of people, getting comfortable at night is nearly impossible. This is made even more problematic if you change positions throughout the night. Every time you move, your pillow is suddenly not supportive in the way you need it, especially if you do it while you are still asleep. Fortunately, there is a new pillow - AirCozy by DozzyCozy - that is designed to promote healthy sleeping no matter your position.
Anyone who has tried to do any baking or any kind of food preparation for that matter knows that it is a complicated process. Baking, especially, is a science, and everything has to be precise and well-timed or the results could be disastrous, costly, or even a mess. When Grandma was in the kitchen, she seemed like a professional, with all the skills and time to do what was needed to make a seemingly hard job look effortless. While our time today is much more limited, we are lucky that GE has released the GE Profile Smart Mixer to make our lives easier and time in the kitchen much more pleasant and productive.
Trying to stay in shape can be a real challenge. If you know what you're doing, you can have your own equipment. However, if you don't know what you're doing, you have to go to the gym and pay a membership fee, and possibly even a personal trainer. But, if you want to work out on your schedule at home and have the convenience of a trainer, LG has a new project called Hovergym.
It seems like every day we hear about another industry that AI, robotics, and automation are coming to improve. Fast food service has gotten better with more automation in the kitchen. Manufacturing has been helped immensely by robotics and automation, making the jobs in factories safer and less physically intensive. However, one place that we didn't expect to see robotics, at least not today, is security. However, ADT Commercial has a new robot security guard called Apollo.
Home security is a top focus for a lot of people. The problem is that creating a safe and secure home can be challenging. You can buy pre-fabbed kits with connected sensors, but you end up locked into their ecosystem, but you're required to monitor and respond to the alerts yourself. The other option is to go with an installed and monitored system, but you're usually locked into their proprietary hardware, so if you ever want to change, you're pretty much out of luck. Luckily, ADT has found an excellent middle-ground for consumers.
For the regular traveler, trying to find the right travel supplies can be a priority. Limiting the number of items, and finding the right travel bag is important. Luckily, STM Goods (short for Smarter Than Most) makes a line of bags and accessories for any traveler.
No one likes to find spoiled food in the fridge, especially when you are expecting to prepare a meal. Food waste these days is not something that should happen, especially for families with several children, as the price of groceries seems to be increasing on a daily basis. However, it can be a challenge to remember when you bought certain items, and certain to know how long each item lasts. This is where the Smarter FridgeCam and Smarter FoodCam come in.
If you own a pool, you know that maintaining the pool can be a pain. Between keeping the pH balance correct, a garage full of various chemicals, a constant fight against leaves, plus keeping the bottom clean, there is always something to do. There have been machines to help with the process, like filters and vacuums, but even that isn't perfect. However, Aiper has a line of underwater robots to make maintaining your pool easier.
We all know that there are many choices out there when it comes to the headphone market, but few companies try to be as customizable as possible or try to balance affordability with high-quality audio. You're usually going to get quality sound with a decent design and a high price tag, or an affordable price with stale audio and LED lights to distract you from its flaws. TWT Audio wants to change up the formula with their current line of headphones.
Modularized parts are one of the key focuses for this line. Detachable ear cups, not just the cousin mind you, are available across the board. They have different styles of earcups, different colors, and earcups made of materials designed to deal with moisture from working out. This can especially appeal to gamers and streamers who are also fitness buffs. You'd have the ability to move from your streaming rig right to your workout area and swap to your sweat-resistant ear cups for a worry-free workout stream.
The audio cable is also modularized. The input device is swappable: you can go from a USB-C connection to a USB-A connection to a 3.5mm connection or even a 1/4 inch connection into an amplifier if you wanted. Seems to be just a quick screw removal from under the ear cup, and simply swapping the part and you're good to go. TWT Audio is making sure that the customization aspect is as easy as possible.
Audio Quality is an aspect they want to emphasize in their gaming model, the Victory 250XG model. Not seen in the interview, I got a good demonstration with a Fortnite match. Projectile paths, sounds of vehicles, and footsteps were all coming from their precise directions. Along with that, the proper volume of sounds depending on their proximity to your character. Sounds were crisp and clear and it's hard to believe how close these headphones come to the higher-end, more expensive headphones on the market.
Comfort level is always important and these do not fall short of other quality headphones. The ear cups are cushioned as well as the band over your head. It's adjustable enough to fit over my large head and hair. Many headphones in the affordability classes cut costs in these areas in particular, so I think it's important to note that TWT Audio seems to have found a sweet spot with these products.
Notable aspects of each model: the Victory 250XG gaming headset has an omnidirectional "silicon flex" mic, come with mesh ear cups and the ear cups' angle can be adjusted for comfort options. The Revo headset has the boom-lift activated mute feature and stealth release changeable cable and ear customization options. Ultra Durable Pro doesn't have the customization options but it has the same functionality and audio quality that TWT Audio is becoming known for. Lastly, the Ultra Ergo is perfect for your work-at-home or office settings.
TWT Audio is taking the market by storm and with their plans for partnerships with educational programs and esports organizations, I'm sure this will be a brand for many to know and love. The 4 product names I mentioned above are all currently available on Amazon via the links below. Also, the Audiophile and Gaming Pro headsets should be available sometime in the near future.
The current line of headphones are available now: The Victory 250XG retail for $39.99, the Ultra Durable Pro retail for $31.99, and the Ultra Ergo retail for $20.99. There is also the REVO headsets run $36.99 and are available for volume purchase.
Interview by Allante Sparks of PLuGHiTz Live Special Events.
If you've ever worked in retail as a salesperson or clerk, you know that there are tricks to get the barcode scanners to read certain products. If you've ever used a self-checkout lane at a store, you likely don't know those tips and tricks, making the experience less than ideal. However, self-checkout is here and not going anywhere, so how do we make the process easier? Mashgin has a new system that allows clerks and customers alike to checkout without any hassle.
Do you remember bath time as a kid? You got to be mostly alone in the bathtub with bubbles and toys. It was a great time for pretend - instead of just holding a boat in the bath, you can pretend that you are the captain of the boat. But, as we grow up, that bath time ends and is replaced by a shower, because we need a better cleansing process. But, the fun gets lost along with bath time. However, Ampere wants to bring that fun from the bath to the shower with the Shower Power Buddies.
One of the everyday items that the tech industry has become interested in is glasses. A lot of interesting ideas have come about surrounding glasses, such as adding Bluetooth speakers and headphones to the earpieces, or even guidance for visually impaired people, But, Amonpere has a new way of looking at glasses with their Dusk line of sunglasses.
Ever since Facebook changed its corporate name to Meta, the word of the industry has been Metaverse. And, while many people don't know exactly what that means, every company wants to be part of it. There have been a number of half-hearted attempts, including from Meta and Microsoft, but Canon has a different take on the concept that seems to show a lot of promise.
Virtual reality has become a big business. Brands from several companies, including Apple and Facebook, have gotten into the virtual reality space in recent years. However, an up-and-coming aspect of the virtual space is augmented and mixed reality - a slightly different take on the concept. Canon, a company known for its cameras and optics, has entered the space with the Canon MREAL Platform.
When it comes to computers, getting the right one for your needs is essential. If you're a casual user, you don't want to spend a fortune just to browse the web and check your email. On the other hand, if you're a gamer or a content creator, you don't want to get an underpowered system that won't serve your purposes for even a week. Razer has got new entries in its Razer Blade laptop line that are perfect for those who are in need of a computer for gaming or content creation.
Videogame streaming has become a major part of the entertainment industry. In our offices, you can almost always find at least one Twitch stream running with one of the popular streamers. As the industry grows, new issues are introduced. For example, the RIAA has recently discovered what's going on with Twitch and started handing out DMCA strikes for music usage. Gamers have been looking for a middle ground on this issue, and the Roland BRIDGE CAST might just be the solution they've been looking for.
Live streaming has become a big business. Between gaming platforms like Twitch and standard platforms like YouTuve and Rumble, it's never been easier to stream video. Even podcasters have gotten into the video game in larger numbers than those of us who have done it for over a decade. But proper production setups can be incredibly expensive and require a lot of specific hardware. The Roland AeroCaster is the company's answer to cumbersome production systems.
Hearing products have come a long way in the past few years. Not too long ago, hearing products were very specific technology (aka hearing aids) with a specific look, feel, and behavior. They were controlled by a small number of companies that required a doctor's appointment, a fitting, and a lot of money - often thousands of dollars. But, for most people, they were still uncomfortable and signaled that they were "old." But now, technology companies have entered the fray and created new products that address the hearing problem in exciting ways. The Sennheiser Conversation Clear Plus is a new entry that aims to improve conversations in loud environments.
Millions of people have issues sleeping at night. Whether there's too much going on in their head, their diet has caused something in their body to be unbalanced, or any number of other issues, it is not an easy problem to deal with. Some people find comfort in music, some in white noise, and others in repetitive TV or movies. But, for many, the problem is addressed with medications. For those who want to try something a little different, there is Algal Bio.
The world lives on the internet today, even more so than even just a few years ago. Many types of work have moved from living in an office to working from home or on a hybrid schedule. Gamers spend their time playing games and sharing that gameplay with friends, family, and subscribers on services like Twitch. Even teachers have begun creating content for platforms like YouTube and Rumble showing off their skills. All of this requires a couple of things, but most importantly a solid-quality camera, and the new Razer Kiyo Pro Ultra is designed to improve all of these environments.
As time goes on, the internet gets to be a more dangerous place. It seems like every day we read another story about another data breach or ransomware attack because simple safety precautions were not taken by users or network administrators. And while you may never be able to change someone else's behaviors to make yourself safer, you can make changes to your own security to help prevent others from putting you in harm's way. Our favorite tactic to protect ourselves is by using a YubiKey by Yubico.
It seems like every time we turn around, someone is talking about education in STEAM - meaning science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (or manufacturing). And, while it is not the right direction for all people, for those who are interested, it can be difficult to find a great way to begin. Much like Goldilocks, some kits are too complicated, and some kits are too simple, but Pyxel from Educational Insights seems to be just right.
For many decades, smoking has been a big problem across all generations. The biggest problem has been the consistent targeting of children in marketing and advertising. For years, Big Tobacco was said to have the internal theory that if you get a young person hooked, you have a customer for life. With the introduction of vaping, the problem seemed t get worse, as kids as young as 11 are often said to be regularly using the devices, albeit illegally. However, one company is working to reduce the connection to nicotine and help people quit - CAPNOS.
Smart sensors are everywhere today. We've got them all over our homes and offices, in and about our cars, and even worn on our bodies. But, like many things in the tech world, they have started out generic and targeted at everyone without any discernment. Now, as the technology gets more advanced, it also becomes more nuanced. Nanoleq is at the forefront of this movement, moving from generalized sensors worn on the wrist to more specific sensors integrated into textiles.
Transportation technology has become a big part of the tech world. Whether it's an electric bicycle, flying car, or any variety of safety technology, transportation is a big deal. Sometimes we see a truly new entry in the space, which is where Rollkers comes in - with a pair of enhanced shoes that look like roller skates, but function more like tank treads, and are designed to allow you to walk faster without having to do anything different.
The next evolution of the web is upon us, and it's being called Web3. The phrase means different things to different people, but it generally describes the concept of distributed computing instead of centralized computing. This new generation of web integrations brings with it a lot of new concepts which have intrigued people of all ages. But, for many people, getting involved with or investing in these new technologies is simply out of reach. But, at CES 2023, Davensi announced the new DV Invest platform to make Web3 technologies more accessible.
Do you want a flying car? Of course, you do! We were promised by science fiction that flying cars would be everywhere in the year 2000. While we're several decades out from the turn of the millennium, flying cars are finally here and, because humans are generally unchanging, they're already available for racing. This is thanks to MACA, the first hydrogen-powered flying race car.
If you like to travel internationally, you know there is a major problem with it - cellular coverage. Sure, your carrier might claim to have coverage across the globe, but it's usually spotty coverage, has slow data speeds, and is often very expensive. Thankfully we've now got Celitech, a company that has made an MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) infrastructure that works across the world without breaking the bank.
One of the reasons that we choose to broadcast from the Venetian Expo Center for our live CES coverage is that we get the distinct advantage of not only seeing the various stages of the companies themselves (i.e. startup, growth, etc.), but also get a front row seat to see the progression of the technologies as they evolve. One that we always keep an eye on is Artificial Intelligence (AI) and although it has been around for some time now, watching its actual evolution from our vantage point at CES every year has been really exciting. Case in point, our interview with Largo.ai is a perfect example.
One of the most fun and exciting things in nature to do is to watch beautiful birds up close. Usually, this would require you to sit quietly in a park or on your back patio with binoculars, hoping you're in the right place at the right time. Fortunately, for us, the world is changing and now we've got a product like Bird Buddy to do the patient waiting for us.
In a standard year (2021 being the exception), CES takes place in Las Vegas. In addition to our annual tech conference, Las Vegas is known for its casinos. Even if you don't gamble, going to the city will expose you to slot machines, at the very least, if you want to do anything, such as use a bathroom or fly into the airport. However, while this gambling experience is one that is available all over the city of Las Vegas, for many, it is nearly impossible to attain. Thanks to Cloverland, anyone can experience it in virtual reality.
At CES, we always find the most wonderful new gadgets and enhancements to existing technology. But keep in mind that not every company or product on display here is featuring a new tech toy, better quality headphones or upgraded refrigerator that can do everything except cook a meal itself. In recent years especially, we have encountered technologies that are used to constructively help with some really important causes. And in the case of OneThird, assist with reducing food waste, both from within the supply chain and at the point of purchase.
We all remember helping our parents and grandparents with setting up and using the most recent technology. It started with properly connecting video players to the back of the tv and scheduling the recording of their favorite shows. Then it evolved through learning basic skills for computers, email, and mobile phones. Now we are configuring smart home devices that not only assist them with daily life, health, and security but also help to keep us from having to go over there every ten minutes. And now that we are fully emerged in the age of VR, AR, AI, and whatever the Metaverse is, we find ourselves in a race to keep up. That's where Reboot Imagine comes in.
Construction can be a long and expensive process. Plus, when building out a new space, you have the challenge of making sure that everything is put together just right to prevent things like gaps in your window frames that can let air conditioning out and outside noise in. For years, we've had rudimentary tools to help us ensure that our construction projects are going to plan, but now we've got Sorama to find even small imperfections.
At CES 2023, we had a lot of conversations about virtual reality, augmented reality, and mixed reality. Some companies discussed hardware, a lot discussed software, but very few discussed the most important part - the screen that powers the experience. Despite the importance of this particular piece of the puzzle, most screens have been okay at best. However, thanks to the researchers at Fraunhofer FEP, we could see a big change in the future.
Growing up as a child, I was always in the kitchen. I had the opportunity to learn to cook at a very early age, and I was always told one important thing: never get too close to the pressure cooker because it may either burn me or explode! That created a fear for life, which has left me being uncomfortable using one to this day. Improvements in technology from companies like CookingPal, however, has helped to ease that fear with products that are much safer and easier to use.
Every year, we hear several stories of disasters caused by forgetting something in a car. We see babies die in their car seats. We see pets die waiting for their owners to return. And while there are legal penalties for this type of behavior, the problem persists. This could very well be because the cause is an oversight rather than malice. If the cause is truly because of forgetting a baby in a car, then Dont Forget might just be the solution.
Having a pool can make your summer a lot more fun, but the maintenance can be annoying. Leaves and dirt are going to get into the pool whether you like it or not and can be damaging. Plus, no one wants to swim in a dirty pool. Luckily, Aiper has a robotic solution to make pool maintenance easier.
In the last few months, the topic of artificial intelligence, better known as AI, has been at the top of people's minds. This is because of the new usage model brought about because of generative AI, or AI that can write as if it's a person. But, AI has a lot of potential uses, including improving online search results, creating almost real looking images, and automatic replies in email. However, HITS AI is looking to use artificial intelligence to improve medication research.
One of the biggest problems with installing a television in your home or office is the cabling. You can hang the TV on the wall and make it a beautiful feature of your room. However, to make it work, you've got to have power cables and video cables running from a variety of devices to the television. While there are fairly simple solutions to this problem, Displace thinks it has an even simpler solution.
Physical therapy is difficult. It's made even more complex in that by the time we live. The demands on our time are greater than ever. We're also human, meaning we lose the paper they give us with the exercises on it. We also have to attempt to decipher the ancient hieroglyphic structure of the photocopied page, unsure if we're even doing the movements properly. Plus, we forget to take our medication. Allimb offers an AI-enhanced solution to these problems. Plus, it runs on your phone, not someone else's hardware, and will absolutely change the way you recover.
I watched my father battle all 3 of these issues over the past year. He had both knees totally replaced within the span of 7 months. Most pro athletes wouldn't even undertake such a challenge. But my dad did, at 77 years old. The physical pain wasn't what bothered him, he just wanted, as all of us do after any traumatic injury or medical procedure, to get better. He faced massive trials with the proprietary exercise bike they assigned him, which was running a build of Android from the mid-2010s. You couldn't even re-launch the application when it would freeze, you'd have to call and wait on hold for about 20 minutes to get someone to remotely reset your bike. A truly miserable experience, especially when there are enough barriers between you and your recovery.
Athletes are known for their strength, their stamina, and how precisely they train. Day after day, they go the distance and push through any number of obstacles to achieve their goals. It is with hard work and determination that they are constantly striving to meet that next benchmark to ensure they are able to compete at top form and against the best of the best. Some say they eat, drink, and sleep their sport and the training within. And now, ErgoSportive is making certain that sleep is actually an integral part of that training.
The technology that has been invented for and adapted into modern cameras is nothing short of amazing. The history of the camera is long and fascinating and has gone from camera obscura to early fixed images to dry plates to 35mm then instant and digital with a lot more actually in between those stages. And who would have thought that we would ever have mobile phone cameras that basically turned into full-blown photo studios right in our pockets? You might even think that we have come to a point where there aren't a lot more improvements that can be made. Well, think again. There is so much more that is happening in this industry and Luxonis is right at the forefront of some very exciting additions. Their mission is to offer performant products with spatial AI built in.
If you have ever had the responsibility of maintaining a commercial property, you know that it can be more than a full-time job. Trying to keep the floors clean, especially in a multi-level facility, can be a real pain. Without question, as soon as you start working on a particular area, something goes wrong somewhere else, and you have to leave what you're doing and deal with something else. Fortunately, the team at Gausium has developed a robot to automate away the cleaning process.
Exercising can be a lot of work and a real drag - especially when you're not especially interested in the process. If you don't know what you're doing, it can even be embarrassing or dangerous going to the gym. That's why it's so important to make sure you have the right exercise plan and motivation. Everyone needs a little bit of help from time to time, whether that be from an online coach or a personal trainer. With the right support, it can be liberating to get into an exercise routine that is tailored to your body and goals. TION Care is a great way to build confidence while having fun.
If you're like me, using a telescope can be a real pain. I'm no astronomer, I just want to be able to look at interesting things in the night sky. But it requires me to know a lot about the sky, where those interesting things are located, and then how to find them with the telescope. It seems as if this is a common issue, as the team at Unistellar has developed an exciting new telescope that requires a lot less information to enjoy at home.

I know that I'm in the minority here, but I don't like massages. There's a pair of reasons for this. The first is because I have a pinched nerve in my neck that, if it gets hit just right, can knock me to the ground. The pain is intense and debilitating and can last for hours. So, it's difficult to trust someone with my neck. The second issue is that I don't like thinking about muscles or being reminded about biology. I don't even let my personal trainer discuss muscles while we're working out. However, during CES 2023, I discovered that there is a way that I can enjoy the benefits of massage without any of my usual concerns thanks to our friends at HumanTouch.
