looking at a couple of the CES Innovation Honoree categories

here are the items that have won CES Innovation Awards this year as well as the honorees in the Robotics and Drones category. I was planning on doing sort of a follow-up to the sexual aid device getting yanked article, but it’s not worth it.

Best of Innovation

  • A Bluetooth water bottle/speaker (actually kind of cool)
  • An atmospheric water generator (so you can pay even more for water)
  • An Alexa enabled bluetooth FM transmitter
  • A beehive warmer/cooler
  • Harry Potter coding kit
  • Lidar/computer vision thing
  • An 8K 260 degree VR ball ($5000)
  • A KitchenAid thing that looks like it should be out of the running with smart assistants
  • A kitchen faucet
  • A tablet
  • LG Sound Bar
  • LG V40 ThinQ
  • Earbuds
  • Skin track wearable sensor
  • NVIDIA video chips
  • Personal AI assistant for hearing
  • Owlet bell baby monitor
  • PLOTT Extended reality platform
  • Qoobo One (wireless tube amp)
  • An embedded voice AI
  • Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones
  • A countertop dishwasher
  • App the does in-picture 3d measurement
  • The Window by Samsung (MicroLED display)
  • TrustBox (IoT gateway)
  • A universal wireless charger for laptops
  • A powered wheelchair
  • Battery free hearing aid
  • ZOMEKit for Apartment buildings (looks like the Sense monitor with the word “blockchain” attached for marketing)
  • Zumi RoboCar (AI self driving vehicle)

The device I was going to make this article was in the Robotics and Drones category, so let’s look through there…

Drone with arms, vacuum robot, multisensor thingie, better drone remote, hybrid power flying drone, Intel’s Shooting Star Drone, Roomba i7+, RC drone arm, another drone, build your own drone, computer vision enhancement, water done, a robot that follows you in stores while you shop, an electric skateboard, and a $250 robot who hangs out and helps you. OK, that last one (Vector) is pretty darn cool and you cat watch a video of it in action.

Notably absent in any category I can locate are sexual aids. Some interesting stuff though.
