It Was the Year of the Family at CES 2015
In 2015, families with kids under 18 years old are leading the charge in acquiring the newest gadgets and devices, including wearables, entertainment, home appliances and mobile devices. Recent statistics show that families with children are more likely to purchase wearable tech and twice as likely as non-parents to purchase a 3D printer in the next year.
The Internet of Things, mobile, untethered communications, long lasting battery life, and wearable technology are just a few of the reasons why this year may go down in CES history as the year of the family.
On the show floor we saw the future take hold in astounding ways:
Whirlpool’s Smart Kitchen showed how appliances can talk (to each other).
Innovzen O2 Chair helps you relax and distress by reinforcing breathing techniques and dispensing oxygen.
Kolibree’s 3D motion sensing toothbrush has an app that tracks how well you and the kids are brushing
Bellabeat is all tracking women’s lives from pre to post pregnancy.
Binatone’s line of dog trackers included video monitoring as well as location trackers.
