What is the future of consumer technology? It’s a tricky question, but one I will be finding out at CES Unveiled Paris.
That’s right, New Rising Media has been given the incredible privilege of attending this prestigious show in the world of technology.
Five years of hard work has paid off, and beyond thanking key influential stakeholders for this opportunity, I have to thank you - dear reader. I am thankful for every second you spend reading/watching/generally consuming the content posted on this site.
But let’s get beyond the sentimentality - what’s the plan? Well, the same as any show (subtly blatant hint to check out my work at Gadget Show Live and the most recent TCT Show), I’ll provide extensive coverage of the biggest talking points coming out of the expo.
Not only are there a bunch of amazing companies presenting their latest and greatest gadgets, I will be watching a full presentation about the future of consumer tech, based on market research.
Yes, I know - a presentation sounds boring. But, this is one of the premier points of industry observation. It is a goldmine of data, and it will help further inform us all about what the future holds.
Again, a huge thank you to all of you for helping propel New Rising Media towards getting this opportunity. I will not let you down.
I get it. We’re all scared in the wake of the tragedy in Westminster last Wednesday. Khalid Masood’s actions in committing this atrocity are truly reprehensible. But digital communication is not at fault, and adding an Orwellian level of surveillance is not the answer.
Broadband problems? Under new Ofcom proposals, you will no longer have to “fight tooth and nail” for the “fair compensation” you are owed. If approved, Internet Service Providers will automatically have to pay customers for bad broadband, delayed repairs and missed engineer appointments.
A car that rises up to drive over traffic… Sounds like a dream, right? Well, it is I’m afraid. While the Hum Rider is a real car, it’s simply a marketing stunt for Verizon.
Sex toys have taken another step forward with the Flashlight Launch - a masturbation machine that takes all the manual arm work out of reaching climax.
Snapchat story clones are cropping up everywhere in Facebook-owned apps and it’s not necessary. Would you ever want to post the same story across four different platforms? Or course not.
What is the future of wearables? I went to The Wearable Technology Show and found out - writing for BBC Science Focus magazine.
Forget everything you knew about smart homes and the Legend of Zelda… One particular fan has managed to create a home automation system that is controlled by playing the Ocarina.
Following the instant success of Pokémon GO in summer 2016, rumours began that developer Niantic was working on another game – simply named Harry Potter GO. This is fake news, so please stop sharing it.
A team of researchers have done something incredible yet terrifying - using sound waves to hack a smartphone, using a method that could be used to theoretically control any technology with an accelerometer.
I get it - the headline sounds terrifying. But Switzerland’s EPFL has just invented a medical masterpiece that could help to reinvent robotic healthcare. These gelatinous machines could soon be crawling around your insides and performing operations.
