The best stuff from CES 2015 Featured


The International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas for 2015 is now over - here’s some of what was the best on show.

Ok, so CES 2015 has come and gone, but what was some of the great stuff on display?

You can see BGR’s list of Top 7 wearable gadgets from CES 2015 worth checking out here

Here’s the fake US $27 Apple Watch clone that looks like the real thing, as found by Mashable, complete with stolen icons, and even pairs with an iPhone, but naturally is on skin deep when it comes to replicating even a fraction of the true Apple Watch experience.

LG even had a webOS powered smartwatch which wasn’t officially on display at CES but generated some buzz nevertheless, with predictions that LG will ditch Android Wear for its own webOS platform instead, as seen here at PC Mag

When it comes to robots, here’s Chihira Aico, Toshiba’s ‘Communication Android’ which peers into the uncanny valley and points to a future where humanoid androids are a reality - via IBI Times

Popular Science found a medical robot called MEDi that helps kids during recovery, and it looks every bit like a Japanese robot from anime, although it’s being used in Canada right now and will soon come to the US.

Ars Technica filmed a video in the Robotics Marketplace.

Design & Trend also had a CES 2015 Robot report, here

Drones made an appearance at CES, too, as you’d imagine - here’s what PC Mag uncovered

Intel’s autonomous drones are new, too, as discovered by Gizmodo. 

Intel's 5th-gen Broadwell processors - known as Core M - also arrived at last, powering some very thin and light ultrabooks, as explained by ZDNet

The coolest gaming controllers for your smartphone or tablet ever? MadCatz trumped Razor this year, as explained by Gizmodo

4K TV was also big at CES, with Samsung and LG trying to outdo each other, and other players, too. Engadget has a 60 second video wrap here

Then there’s Sharp’s new 80-inch Quattron TV that is so good with subpixel trickery that its 4K TV looks like 8K TV - as profiled by Wired. 

Connected cars were also a big part of CES - take a look at this report from Time Magazine. 

Forbes Magazine lists the five most disruptive things that happened this year at CES 2015, here. 

Internet of Things? Yep, it was big at CES, too - despite the term ‘Internet of Things’ have been thought of way back in 1999.

Take a look at Fairfax Media’s hands-on with Belkin’s WeMo Maker smart home kit here. 

ZDNet talks about the AllSeen Alliance launch for IoT at CES here. 

Apple wasn’t at CES officially, but plenty of Apple devices will be controlled IoT devices, as Forbes discovered

USA Today asks how safe we are in the Internet of Things era. 

BigThink also has a wrap on IoT devices at CES, including a new 9 volt smart battery for your smoke alarm that can talk to an app on your phone, notifying you when the alarm has sounded, and notifying you that your battery is getting low, long before your smoke alarm starts its annoying chirp.

Finally, from quirky to revolutionary, it was all there at CES, as NDTV reports

There was plenty more at CES 2015 - a quick search of the term at your favourite search engine will come up with a whole lot more, but these were some of the big things that captured the world’s attention during the tech show of tech shows that kicks off each and every year.

And of course, the official CES website is already promoting CES 2016, once again from January 6 to 9 in Las Vegas!
