More than 3800 exhibitors unveiled their latest technologies at arguably the world’s largest technology event, CES 2016, held in Las Vegas last week.
More than 170,000 industry professionals from across the world attended the event.
“At CES 2016 everyone saw that tech is about more than single products and services, it is about improving our world and providing hope for our future. It was awe-inspiring to see traditional and non-traditional ‘tech’ industries meet to brainstorm, partner and collaborate on ways to do business and address global issues,” commented Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, Consumer Technology Association.
“Technology now touches every facet of our lives, from improving our workouts and the way we sleep, to keeping us safe on the roads and in our homes and even preventing or treating illnesses,” he says.
Here’s a quick wrap of some of the products showcased.
