Considered by many to be the most exciting annual tech event, the Consumer Electronics Show 2024, which took place in Las Vegas early in January, offered over four thousand exhibitors showcasing the latest and greatest in tech innovations.
From transparent televisions to artificial intelligence-powered consumer goods, here are a few of the standout products from the expo.
The Motionsleep pillow is designed to enhance sleep for those who snore or experience other forms of breathing discomfort. Used in combination with a ring, the pillow uses AI to detect snoring sounds and accurately measure oxygen-saturation levels, dynamically adjusting the position of the head and neck using an airbag-type system in order to improve breathing and reduce snoring.
Designed by Marc Newson, the Swarovski Optik's AX Visio binoculars mark a groundbreaking integration of technology into the bird- and animal-watching world. Equipped with advanced AI capabilities, the AX Visio binoculars can seamlessly identify various bird and animal species, providing enthusiasts with instant information about the wildlife they’re observing.
Low-light solar cells
California-based tech startup Ambient Photonics’ innovative indoor solar-cell technology turns any light source into power, ushering in a new age of sustainable, battery-free, connected devices. This means that electronics powered by Ambient Photonics solar cells will continue to perform in any indoor light.
LG’s transparent TV
The LG Signature OLED, a masterful wireless creation, is the world’s first transparent TV, enabling users to see through it when the screen is not on. The TV also features an always-on display, where images can be displayed in transparent mode, as if they are floating in the centre of a room, with an unobstructed view of the surroundings.
Solar-powered electric vehicle
The Squad Mobility electric vehicle is the ‘world’s first solar city car for daily urban mobility’. Not much bigger than a golf cart, the Squad automatically charges its own batteries with solar energy from the integrated solar panel on its roof, giving off zero emissions.
