The New Year is a time of renewed vows of change or recommitting to personal resolutions that didn’t pan out before. Unlike those flimsy promises to slim down or find inner peace, the year’s biggest changes always start at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Of course, your Popzara Pals are no strangers to the technologically extravagant sights and sounds that Sin City’s most tech savvy show has to offer. Welcome to CES 2018!
In this augmented episode of the Popzara Podcast our own CES alumni/survivor Herman Exum is joined by Nate Evans and extra special-guest Ben Crossman (Computer America) to discuss the most pleasant, disappointing, and intriguing gadgets, doohickeys, and future-tech on display that made us go “Whoa…”
Nearly everything that went down on the floor in on the table: from robot companions (Aibo, Kuri, Jibo), the future of television screens (modular displays, Samsung Wall, LG Rollable OLED TV), and even a bevy of everyday products with extra sass and voice-assistance via Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant (where are you, Siri and Cortana?). Super-thin laptops, self-driving cars, and even a little sophisticated toilet talk round out one of the most promising CES shows in years.
