I am here at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show (#CES2014) and excited to share the lastest and greatest new tech coming out. To follow my updates, check TechMama on Twitter. I just came back from the preview called “CES Unveiled” and was thrilled to see new innovations (such as a wireless crockpot with temperature controls via a smartphone), multiple devices and wearable technology that use flexible sensors that communicate via the Internet to provide all types of information. Those advancements relate to what I have been reading for some time about the “Internet of Things”. The Huffington post shared some statistics in an April 2013 article: “By 2022, the average household with two teenage children will own roughly 50 Internet-connected devices, up from approximately 10 today, according to estimates by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development. This trend has been dubbed the “Internet of Things“. So we can look forward to more household devices giving all types of new feedback, like our own team of personal assistants.
The Internet of Things was the inspiration for the panel I will be moderating at MommyTechSummit CES on Jan. 8 called “Future Moms” (at 2:55pm). But there will be many other relevant discussions and keynotes so for those at CES please stop by starting at 8:30am. There is also a MommyTech “Tech Zone” at the Venetian Level 2 with a great set of exhibitors. For those at home, there is MommyTechTV that will be streaming throught CES, or come see us live at the Venetian booth 71201. I will be co-hosting with Andrea Smith and can’t wait to discuss the latest family technology.
What new technology are you looking forward to using?
