CES – The International Consumer Electronics Show
This show is one of the largest conventions in the world with ovr 150,000 visitors in Las Vegas this week to showcase their products and look at competitors. We were in Las Vegas for Affiliate Summit and the hotels increased dramatically the day before the conference. This is only going to get bigger so order your tickets way in advance.
This year many companies have increased their presence at the show, most notably Google whom have their largest number of staff this year than ever before.
Longer Battery Life
The ability to have longer battery life on products is always a focus, however this year it is higher than ever. With the recent news (that we suspected anyway) when Apple confirmed that older devices were purposely made to run slow due to the software updates. The reason being is battery life, many consumers were not happy with this reason.
Some products being showcased in Las Vegas are longer lasting gadgets and electronics including cars.
Whilst Continental don’t make or manufacture cars this year their booth at the show has been focused on electric charge for cars. The technology, aptly named AllCharge is inside vehicles and allows use as mobile power banks, providing AC power to anything you want, hence the picture above. Continental sees this as being used around the world where people can be gathered next to vehicles including tailgate parties and remote work sites.
The new Lenovo’s Miix 630 tablet, a two-in-one that comes with a keyboard has been designed to last up to a staggering 20 hours on a single charge. Whilst this has not been released we will aim to do the tests for ourself.
Whilst we all appreciate wireless mouses, the issue is that the batteries need replacing all the time, with this tech company Razer has removed all the battery all together. How does it charge? Well the mouse mat generates a magnetic field which then powers the mouse for your needs. The only issue is that you now have to take your mouse mat wherever you go. This is a great idea and maybe this is the future of charging things. The mouse is named Mamba and will be released on to the market shortly after the CES conference.
