Petersburg company takes virtual reality headset camera to CES in Las Vegas

Petersburg company takes virtual reality headset camera to CES in Las Vegas

For the first time in several years, Google has planted the flag at CES with a large booth of its own, which GBH Insights research chief Daniel Ives attributes to the growing importance of software that can be used to manage other internet-connected devices. Expect more big TVs and a shift from virtual reality to augmented reality as two of the major themes of the 2018 event, while Google facing down Amazon's Alexa will also be an interesting topic.

In addition to cutting-edge consumer technologies, this year's CES attendees can also - as usual - expect to see offbeat, concept, and odd innovations. The 2012 showcase was dominated by 3D printers, and in recent years has played host to increasingly outlandish gimmicks, like hair growth hairbands and flying machines.

CES 2018 has become the first major event of the year to showcase the latest vehicle technology, too, and our sister title Auto Express will also be at the show bringing you the next-generation in motoring. Will next maybe Alexa, Bixby or Google Assistant? Speakers for the ginormous event, which is operated by the Consumer Technology Association, include Intel CEO Brian Krzanich, Ford president and CEO Jim Hackett, and Baidu vice chairman Qi Lu.

United Nations just reported to the media that they are pretending that about 60% of the world's population will live in urban areas by 2030. We also saw Amazon's Echo range given a new lick of (technological) paint - definitely symptomatic of a big rejuvenation of the smart home industry. Now companies are pushing software and hardware for professional sports.

Six quakes hit Iran
Earlier in November, a magnitude 7.3 natural disaster struck western Iran , killing more than 600 and injuring more than 9,000. A magnitude 6.6 natural disaster flattened the historic city of Bam in south Iran and killed 26,000 people in 2003.

One of the most curious devices arriving at CES will be presented by Miliboo, a company that has been working on a smart sofa that collects information about television viewing habits and correlates them to the posture assumed by viewers during specific programming. Self-driving attributes are the most prominent attraction, but this season there'll also be an emphasis on the idea 5G networks will affect driving, says Koenig. Numerous products will be quickly forgotten - like last year's wi-fi connected trash can with voice controls.

Of course, some of us use more than one.

We'll report back with the best, the worst, and the most dumfounding from Las Vegas throughout the week.
