CES 2015 highlighted some of the latest and greatest in technology, and unveiled some of the most-groundbreaking tech pieces in the works. Some that could save lives, others that would make life more convenient – and others that just seemed strange, and bizarre. No matter how it was sliced though, the amount of pure information that could have been absorbed at the Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas this year – highlighted some of the most-intriguing and buzzworthy pieces of technology that anyone will see in 2015.
A proposed EpiPen case replacement by Veta was one of the more interesting pieces of technology as it related to the medical world. It costs $59 and unlike traditional cases, it took advantage of the growing need for communication. Upon opening the case, the Veta EpiPen case would notify friends, family, and even 9-1-1 if need be to report a medical emergency as it relates to an anaphylactic allergy.
The case even gives alerts, verbal instructions, and comes with a companion app for a smartphone – that will allow users to sync it with a handheld device, and through this method pose better communication to those who need to know if the device is in use. Preorders were available, but the device isn’t expected to go on sale until the middle of the year.
Sony unveiled the AX33 Handycam – which will retail for $999. That may seem like a big chunk of cash, but for shooting quality content that is four-times as impressive as traditional 1080p HD video – that is a relatively tame price. The company added SteadyShot optical image stabilization – which is a significant improvement – as well as Wi-Fi connectivity, with a lot of other add-on features to the powerful 4K Ultra HD shooter.
Samsung introduced the SE790C computer monitor that layers a curved and ultra-widescreen aspect ratio experience. The monitor is expected to be the best gaming monitor on the market – when that launches officially in stores. The mamaRoo made by 4moms might be the most-interesting piece of technology that didn’t have anything to do with a computer, car, or smart device. This piece of technology would rock an infant – up to six months old, in various patterns. This could be controlled by a panel or smartphone app, depending on what the user wanted. There were also music options, as well as noise options for this device.
Selfies have become commonplace with social networking, and new smartphones that are taking better, and better photographs. Nixie can actually take a photo of you. It was debuted by Intel, and it’s a wearable device that traditionally will be on the user’s wrist. It can fly away, snap a photo or video in boomerang mode, and come back to the user. If you’re looking for something that won’t fly away though, and something that won’t get taken away – try the iWallet. It combines high-end security, including fingerprint recognition – to ensure that all of your money, cards, and valuables are safe. If that’s not enough, it can even be synced up with your smartphone to give you a warning when your wallet gets too far away from you.
