In years past, vaporizer technology stole the spotlight at the Consumer Electronics Show, or CES, which was held earlier this month in Las Vegas. While we still think the vaporizer is one of the coolest gadgets out there, its rise to mainstream popularity has made way for a new generation of consumer electronics to take center stage. CES is one of our favorite times to geek out on all the shiny new objects making their debut each year and we couldn’t wait to see what’s in store for 2015.
We put together a list of the top five categories that dominated this year’s event. Look for products in these categories to make a splash on the marketplace at some point in 2015 – in addition to the release of the highly anticipated V2 Pro Series 7 vaporizer, of course…
The speed at which drone technology is flooding the market is impressive. CES introduced us to the Bionic Bird, a paper airplane-resembling drone that can be had for as little as $139. It might not be long before you could have a drone-bird of your own fetch you some e-liquid or re-charge your vaporizer.
Wearable technology of all kinds is all the rage. Since our affinity for wearable tech is so great, this one was hardly a surprise. We love our fitness monitoring watches, but 2015 promises to bring a slew of new wearables, like heart-rate monitors, self-adjusting belts, and more.
In the television tech category, Dish’s Sling TV was the standout product of this year’s show for most of us. Sling TV promises to change the way we think about our cable services and we can’t wait for its release.
The big news at CES 2015 was Sony’s revival of the Walkman. While the price tag is hefty at over $1,000, we appreciate seeing a product we grew up with getting another shot at popularity. And there’s nothing 1980s about the new Walkman; this cool device has been reinvented with an emphasis on what the modern consumer demands – high quality, digital music
There were tons of cool breakthroughs involving cars. Our favorite was the car outfitted with “Individual Sound Zones” technology that lets each person in the car have their own soundtrack. Passengers will hear only what they’ve programmed for their zone; with other sounds blocked out.
