CES 2017: Bosch’s Plan For IOT? How About Everything
DwayneD   |  @   |  

Bosch Connect Everything

There are a LOT of companies peddling products here at CES. We’ve got smart cameras that auto-send images to Facebook and double-washing machines that allow you to clean two separate loads of clothes at once without ruining them or taking up more space.

But among all of the keynotes, Bosch stuck out, as board member Werner Struth spoke about their plans for the future. The private company’s leader of North and South American operations managed to speak with certainty not about the next whizbang product or another device was going to be the next big thing, but rather about how combining two mundane technologies (home appliances and internet connectivity) and ending up with extraordinary products. He’s spent the last year “figuring out how technology can do better for all of us.”

CES 2017: iKeybo: The Light Keyboard (Literally)
DwayneD   |  @   |  

iKeybo Light Keyboard #1

Somewhere and sometime in some imagined future, protagonists in fashionable yet slightly over-fitted clothing have stealthily stolen in to some grand facility, mercilessly protected by a merciless faction, hell bent on doing something dastardly. They access a panel with their device and a keyboard is projected onto the surface in front of them.

Or maybe that was me and a few other reporters gathered around the founder of a Kickstarter campaign here at CES 2017. Serafim Technologies, a Taiwanese-based company led by CEO GZ Chen, has a new toy called iKeybo in store for all those who’ve imagined what it would be like to set words down my tapping nothing but mere light.

Amazon Echo & Dish Hopper

In case you needed another reason to go Alexa rather than Google, the media gods have got one for you. The avalanche of CES 2017 press conferences hadn’t even begun when the news came in from Dish Network. In addition to their Sling Box and their 2014 breakthrough, no-contract live-streaming cable service, SlingTV, Dish decided to take another leap forward in delivering television entertainment to their consumers — support for Amazon‘s Alexa Voice Services or AVS.

Dish users with Hopper DRV devices of any generation will be able to control them using their voice through Amazon’s Echo or Echo Dot hardware.

DwayneD   |  @   |  

Syfy Labs

Here at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show, North Hall is full of big concepts. Samsung uses the space to show off their latest VR Gear devices while Ford’s massive display allows visitors to sit in a virtual vehicle as if it were a cockpit. But the area isn’t full of hardware manufacturers alone.

Syfy, long a purveyor of the types of fantasy and space opera dramas that imagine the very types of technologies that we often see here at CES, has their own little booth. Promoting their latest space fantasy, the The Expanse, the Syfy Labs booth uses the latest technology to show how viewers can interact with their devices. The Expanse booth includes a VR station where passers-by can stop and experience some of the space scenes in virtual reality.
