We went to CES 2016! (No we didn’t)

So here we are, our reporter did not go to CES 2016 from the 6th to the 9th of January, which is why he has nothing to say about the awesome products showcased there, in fact, our reporter does not even exist! He is a fiction of our imagination!!!

But if he weren’t and he did, I’m sure he would have said something like;

Good morning and good day to you all, I am <reporter’s name goes here> and I am here at CES 2016, not against my will at all by the way. It was totally my idea to fly down here and go to the event and see all these people…ah yes the people. You know, I could have stayed put, gone to work in the morning, did my time, gone back home, just relax on my ridiculously comfortable couch and play video games to the wee hours of the morning but who wants that right?

CES surprises us every year with some tech that makes us go, “Dear God, those bastards finally did it”, and of course, “Wasn’t this featured last year? and the year before that?”, this year was no different and without further ado, here are some of the coolest products at CES 2016!

The DAQRI smart helmet

This nifty device is insane, it was introduced as a professional tool and is an augmented reality enabled safety hat essentially, but imagine if it was produced for the general public!

The Laundroid

This is exactly what it sounds like, it does exactly what humanity has wanted it to do since the dawn of time, it’s here and by God it’s glorious. This is the droid I’m looking for. Just take my money dammit!!

Corning’s Gorilla Glass Walls

It’s such an exciting time to be alive, ’tis the age of Iron Man…and soon maybe Minority Report? *wink’s at the physical manifestation of the plans for CES 2017*

Ehang 184

Now drones have been exciting for quite some time and they still are, but when you take a drone and fit a man inside and fly it around…you make this list 🙂

LG Rollable Display

Because why not right? Imagine this scenario right here, “Hey man thanks for letting me crash in your spare bedroom”, “Of course buddy, I’m sorry though there is no TV in here”, “Oh it’s fine…brought my own”… right??

Volkswagen Budd-e

This car is so awesome! It’s incredible, it’s spectacular…and when the time is right, it’s mine!

Mother

Okay, about the creepiest looking thing you have ever seen, the makers of mother officially made the device of your nightmares. Remember back in high school when you lost your mind living with family and just couldn’t wait to get out? All of those feelings are rushing right back…

Keymouse

Perfect, a new way to feed my laziness.

Virtual Reality

VR has been around for a while and has been slowly improving, but finally it’s 2016 and the age of virtual reality has begun! Two of the front runners and favourites at CES were the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive.

 

Infinadeck

The perfect companion to VR headsets!

Ahh it’s such an exciting time to be alive and these products are just the beginning. Think about it, if you put the Ehang 184 and add to it the tech in the DAQRI smart helmet…we could reach the age of Jetsons a lot faster than we thought.

Honorable mention

A bluetooth enabled pregnancy test…yes, A ‘BLUETOOTH ENABLED’ pregnancy test. Ill show myself out…
