Last week, the world’s largest consumer technology tradeshow came to Las Vegas, Nevada.
Potential industries, consumers and devoted tech geeks were given a glimpse into the future of electronics, and the futuristic innovation associated with some of most popular gadgets and gismos on the market.
The Consumer Electronics Show (better known as CES) is an opportunity for big-named companies like Panasonic, Samsung, and even Trojan Condoms to display what’s next for the future of their products.
But the conference is also an opportunity for up-and-coming businesses to take their products and showcase them for business in the hopes of their item being the next great must-have for consumers.
What was found to be one of the more surprising and most interesting themes of CES this year was the presence of products geared towards women and the technological advances in products geared towards female needs and comforts.
With many new 3D televisions and hologram images coming from watches, the conference became about finding rare gems from companies looking to transcend and elevate the needs and products for women.
More women at the conference were prominently featured as the CEOs and inventors of amazing new products, no longer just the eye candy used to draw attention to the various exhibitor booths.
So you have an idea about how big this conference is this year, there were over 3,000 exhibitors stretched out between two hotel conference centers and a main conference center. More than 160,000 visitors appeared over the four-day event.
Our very own Michelle Robson was in attendance and scoured the entire conference in search for the best in social health and lifestyle. And CES didn’t disappoint with the options available.
There was a hugely competitive market for the innovation of health and fitness monitoring devices and phone apps.
Companies such as Withingsand Fitbit were heavily displayed throughout the conference. Companies featured an assortment of devices you can use to track your daily fitness goals, nutritional levels and even up-to-the-second blood pressure and calorie intake levels right from your smartphone!
Other companies such as Lifecomm plan to revolutionize mobile security solutions by offering emergency response and remote caregiving.
An Inspector Gadget-like wristwatch will communicate with an emergency response center that tracks your location, schedule and your health levels. It will even communicate with you through the watch in case of an emergency. This is a great product for elderly citizens and others with health problems.
Many innovations in the sexual health and wellness of women were surprisingly on the forefront of the CES convention.
Trojan Vibrations are progressively popular in today’s market. They were at the world’s largest consumer technology tradeshow to display their advances in the sexual satisfactions for woman.
They wanted to show how sexual wellness and pleasure can be on par with some of the best in electronic companies and advances today.
Another company called We-Vibe has caught fire with many foreign markets. It offers a “couple’s aid” which improves intimacy in relationships with many products, devices that are amazingly constructed and beneficial.
These are a few companies and products we were able to learn about, as well as many health and wellness benefits that come along with them. Stay tuned for more in-depth features on these companies and their products available here in the next few days.
