Another year brings us another Consumer Electronics Show (CES for short). This convention is made to show consumers the best and latest in today’s technology. A lot of cool things are shown each year at CES, and this year was no exception. Such things included a gaming PC designed for the living room called “Steam-Box” and made by big time game developer, and creator of the online gaming web service “Steam”, Valve. There was also a sensor that can be placed on your monitor that tracks you eye-movements so that you can control your computer cursor with just your eyes! Samsung even got Bill Clinton to speak about technology and it’s advantages to our life.
These are just a few of the amazing things to come out of CES every year. This is an absolutely perfect way to show off your stuff, and make yourself know. Much to everyone’s surprise gaming was no longer a side show at CES with Valve’s Steam-Box Premier. It’s a step in the right direction, I think, for the gaming community. Being able to bring the quality of a PC gaming experience with the comfort of console gaming in the living room was something to behold. This is a great demonstration of just how much the way we experience games is changing, and it’s for the better. Many other gaming companies like Razer and Nvidia are going the Mobile route and making high-quality gaming on the go with their devices. A big step forward for gaming and the gaming community alike.
Did you know that your eyes can now replace your computer mouse? Well, with a company called “Tobii” you can do just that. Tobii has made a sensor that tracks you eye-movements and lets yo9u control you computer cursor around your screen. I think that this is probably one of the coolest things to come out of CES this year! This is yet another step forward forward for technology that is ever changing the way we experience it.
Also something awesome to come out of CES was that electronics company, Samsung, hired Bill Clinton to be a spokesman for their main showing. Clinton talked about the advantages of our growing world of technology. Bringing up examples like “Banking by cell phone in Haiti, social media and the Arab spring and bracing for global warming”. (techradar.com) Clinton was finally met with applause at the end of his closer for Samsung when he talked about his support for the assault weapons ban.
All in all, I think this was a good year for major and growing electronics companies. Showing a lot of innovation and confidence at this year’s convention. This year’s CES, in my opinion, will be one to remember for a few years to come.
