The 2014 International CES® opened with a record breaking show with more than 3,200 exhibitors across the largest show floor in history – more than two million net square feet of exhibit space – breaking last year’s previously set record of 1.92 million net square feet. Innovation and the promise and power of technology drove this year’s preshow press events that kicked off with CES Unveiled LAS VEGAS on Sunday night with 99 tabletop displays where exhibitors provided a sneak preview of their show floor product launches. Twenty five exhibitors then revealed new products during CES Press Day on Monday.

Wearables are a key component of Intel’s vision of the connected future. Throughout his address, Brian Krzanich, the new Intel CEO announced several partnerships with creative industries like fashion, animation and gaming. Together with Barneys, Opening Ceremony and the Council of Fashion Designers of America, Intel is working to promote wearable devices in fashion. Krzanich also announced that its latest chip, Edison, part of its Quark family of SoCs, will feature “a full Pentium class PC in the form factor of an SD card.”  This ultra-low power, 22nm Dual Core SoC can be used to power wearable devices. “We’re creating a network of devices, all smart, all coming together, all powered by Edison,” he said.

"Because we're about the lifestyle," Rohan Marley says. "What we have is an extension of expression ... We keep that relationship with our people, our father's fans." He adds, "My father has a movement that started before us.   As his children, we are just the stewards to build on his foundation."  This is the House of Marley's 4th year at CES...they want to stay tuned to the technology trends and be part

of the change of music...

filmmakers and photographers are at historic proportions...

 

 

The Futurecast Keynote featured panelists John Donovan of AT&T, Qualcomm’s Paul Jacobs and Ericsson’s HansVestberg who collectively discussed the power of mobile in today’s world, and the future of wireless networks. All three panelists stressed the importance of mobile as a platform for creation. “When you give consumers the freedom to use bandwidth, they’ll use it,” said Donovan, “the phone is the remote control for your life.” Donovan said that AT&T is becoming more of a software-oriented company focused on users, and enabling content creation. Efficiency was also a hot topic (both power and spectrum efficiency). “When we think about the Internet of Everything, we want these sensors to be very low power,” said Jacobs as he discussed wireless charging, explaining that the Formula-E racing circuit will use wireless charging, first for support cars, then eventually for the electric Formula-E cars themselves. Vestberg predicted that in the next three to four years, small cells to help handle 4G traffic (both indoor and out) will be prominent.

The proliferation of second screen tablets and smartphones is giving programmers, operators and marketers a new way to reach viewers. The Second Screen SuperSession included panelists from Sony Home Entertainment, PGA Tour, Crispin Porter + Bogusky and NBCUniversal. Moderated by Guy Finley, executive director, MESA/2nd Screen Society the group discussed how adding a companion “little” screen experience to programming can make the “big” connected screen even bigger. Panelists reported having to work hard to find the right formula to deliver additional content and coordinate two screens...MULTIMEDIA...MULIT-EVERYING...

THE NEXT BIG THING

VOICE RECOGNITION

 

iOS 7 is getting better...Android's voce command feature is also getting better.  This is important because while it may

be awkward right now, voice is a far

more natural manner for humans to interact with computers for many form factors and uses cases than type and touch...Important implication of Google Glass is the introduction of a completely new computing platform where the primary interface is voice. As wearable computers become more common,

voice-based interaction will become necessary given the lack of input options in small form factors.

SMART WATCHES...SMART TVs...SMART CAMERAS...SMART EVERYTHING and THE INTERNET OF THINGS WEARABLE AND

PICTURE AND FILM EVERYTHING...

As described in one product..."The wearable device will be able to record data about your activities, movement, and

health and display the information in a LifeLog app, on your iPhone.  One device can send the electrocardiogram to a

smart phone and the EKG can be forwarded to a physician

for a remote heart monitoring.
