JESS3 attended CES this year as guests of the Consumer Electronics Association, and also on duty for our client Intel. We launched social.cesweb.org for CEA, and we helped Intel with the social media portion of their amazing interactive Cube display, which was the most popular booth at CES this year.
On a note of trends at CES this year, 3d tv was the big thing. I am not sold on 3d tv, it requires you to wear the glasses (and they had lots to choose from) and it makes me a bit dizzy. In general thin televisions with social media widgets on screen seemed to be popular with the big guys. I find the smaller companies is where you are going to find the more interesting products, I rode a skateboard that was powered by a hand remote, and it went really fast. I saw a Japanese therapy toy called Paro (link jess3blog) the thing costs 6k, but its really nicely done. I was inspired by that product because I had seen the technology before but not the intended use. We have all seen animatronics at theme parks, and museums, but this product does animatronics in a way that I had not seen.
This guy was sleeping on the trade floor … reminds me in China, people slept in random places and it wasn’t a big deal. I need to try this!!
My girl leslie was on a panel with execs from Tele Atlas and Nokia …
This is pretty cool and something I’ve been asking about for a while now. Imagine being able to play freely on a guitar hero like guitar.
Shana and Leslie!
