In pictures: Product galore at CES 2016

12 Jan 2016

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.

ASUS won five CES Innovation Awards for products with outstanding design and engineering, including the ASUS Chromebit CS10 candy-bar-sized Chrome OS computing device, the Republic of Gamers (ROG) G752 gaming laptop, the ROG GT51 gaming desktop, the PG348Q LCD monitor, and the RT-AC5300 tri-band wireless router.  

Samsung revealed its 2016 SUHD TV lineup.

Dell announced an expanded selection of Latitude commercial devices.

Lexar launched a range of new products including the Lexar JumpDrive C20i flash drive, JumpDrive S45 USB 3.0 flash drive, and Portable SSD.

“CES has cemented its position as the global gathering place for all industries to be wowed by the tens of thousands of ways that technology is changing the world as we know it," Shapiro says.
