#CES2015 Roundup

This year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas — the first of many to come for Surge4 — was an absolute spectacle.

The overarching theme of CES 2015 was “The Internet of Things,” or more directly: a world in which everyday objects are connected to the internet.

The most popular of these objects were 3D printers, recreational drones, and wearable devices (e.g. smartwatches). Below is a quick rundown of some of the things that caught our eye at CES 2015:

 

MOST EYE-CATCHING BOOTH
iFit
iFit featured a wide range of wearable devices centered around health and sports tracking. But most noticeable about their exhibit wasn’t the devices, but rather the models that were wearing them (pictured above).

 

MOST INTERESTING SPORTS TECHNOLOGY
Cerevo “XON Snow-1” Smart Snowboard Bindings
If 2015 is the year of the wearable, the Cerevo XON Snow-1 will be one of the most popular of the year in the extreme sports category.

These snowboard bindings track performance data including speed and technique, as well as weight balance. At the bottom of the mountain, you can open up the corresponding Cerevo app, and instantly find a summary of the entire run. Check the video below for a more detailed idea:

The Grillbot (pictured, right)
If taking the minute to brush off your grill is too difficult, then you may just be interested in purchasing a Grillbot.

Basically a Roomba for your grill, look no further for automated grill cleaners.

 

NEW CAR TO GET EXCITED ABOUTModel X CES front

The highly touted successor to Tesla Motors’ Model S, the Model X crossover SUV was on exhibit inside the massive Panasonic booth.

The Model X features a set of Lamborghini-esque “Falcon Wing doors,” which amazingly enough allow enough vertical space for an adult man to stand in the rear of the vehicle. While these doors are an amazing feature, even cooler is the performance of this luxury vehicle.

Available in 60 and 80 kWh power options, as well as an 85 Performance variant, Tesla’s third vehicle to date is slated to hit the roads later this year.
