The Consumer Electronic Show 2016 #CES2016

The VCR and CD-rom were both famously introduced at CES. As such year after year hundreds of thousands of people make way to the location of event, Las Vegas hosting this years event.

2016 technology has been viewed to centre on three main areas; drones, virtual reality and wearables.

Drones are now considered a central part to having fun, creating cinematic shots, aiding with healthcare and even are employed in the military. It is no surprise then, that innovative geniuses were further focussing on this component within this years trade show. From unmanned vehicles that can transport humans to a selfie-snapping camera drone, drones were on show and utilised in every possible way.

Virtual reality has been around since the early 90's, though since the integration on our smart phones (via cardboard holders), they are now becoming more accessible and available to mainstream-type consumer. Oculus Rift are at the forefront of this notion, and theres no surprise that they featured heavily at this years event.

Wearable technology was also pivotal this year with Apple and Samsung introducing smart watch accessories to their product portfolio. At CES concepts such as L'Oreals UV patch, made to measure your exposure to sun light, a long with Wisewears attack alarm system, a piece of design jewellery built to keep people safe, proved wearable technology is advancing beyond the ageing fit bit. Though, this years event was shadowed by one thing, and that of Smart Shoes.
