Day One Highlights of CES 2019
CES 2019 Highlights: Day One
The first day of CES is in the books. Some of the biggest names in the technology industry and automobile industry descended on the Las Vegas Convention Center to unveil and show off their latest advancements in technology. Throughout the week we’ll cover the highlights of the show ranging from the expected innovations in televisions, artificial intelligence and self-driving cars all the way to the bizarre things that you never realized was needed. Here is a quick glimpse at what we saw on day one of CES.
All of the 8K TVs
One of the most common sights in CES is the continued advances in televisions. As 4K begins to go mainstream, manufacturers like Samsung, LG and TCL all were busy unveiling their newest 8K TVs. While the 7,680 × 4,320 resolution is visually stunning, it still isn’t quite practical for you to rush out and buy one. Programming for 8K TVs is still tough to find, but they do an impressive job of upscaling 4K content for your enjoyment.
One of the hottest things cooking at CES 2019 is BreadBot. The robot from Wilkinson Baking Company in Walla Walla, Washington cooks up a fresh loaf of bread from scratch every six minutes. The machine measures the conditions of the air around it to make minor adjustments to the amount of yeast, flour, and water used for each loaf. The BreadBot isn’t designed for your kitchen at home, but you could see it soon at a grocery store near you.
The Pet Exercise Robot
One of the hardest parts of owning a pet is not being able spend all of your time with them and giving them the attention (and exercise) they deserve. You could pay for a dog walking service, or you could get the pet exercise robot from Varram. The robot zooms around encouraging your pet to play with it and stay active, keeping them motivated with the occasional treat.
Originally unveiled as a prototype in 2014, Harley-Davidson officially announced that their electric motorcycle will be available for purchase later this year. The bike officially can go from 0-60 mph in just 3.5 seconds and includes a range of 110 miles of city riding. Livewire comes with a hefty price tag of just under $30,000 and is now available for preorder with deliveries expected in the fall.
