As in the past, CES was overwhelming. I'll be posting articles for the next couple of weeks on the things I saw.
If there are technologies that you're specifically interested in, just let me know and I'll see what I can dig up.

For me the highlights of the show can be bundled in to a few big categories:
  • Wearables/fashion peripherals – seemed like 1/3 of the north hall was cases, chargers, cameras, etc.
  • Automotive (self driving and driver assisted computing platforms)
  • TV's (again – some no-glasses 3D, curved screen, thin screen, 4K & 8K)
  • 3D imaging and printing
  • Internet of things (from all the big players)
  • Audio (speakers, headphones, record players…)
Intel was there showing off a couple of new technology bits (they did one of the keynotes
  • Tiny new computer based on the "Curie platform" – a computer about ½" in diameter
  • "RealSense" 3D cameras and processing for PC's (for gesture and recognition technology as well as robotic vision)
  • Face, device, fingerprint authentication technology
  • Wireless charging
  • Wearables
  • And, of course, higher performance processors.
  • They also introduced their new Compute Stick (available this summer). It's a Windows 8/Linux computer in a 4" long HDMI plugin package. This would be great for cheap/thin desktops! (Especially at its $149 price.)
Much more in the coming weeks.
