CES 2016 is officially kicks off today, but there's been enough happening pre-show to keep us plenty busy. Dave Hamilton and Bryan Chaffin join Jeff Gamet to talk about some of the interesting products they've seen, and to look at the trends emerging at this year's event.
LAS VEGAS - During CES Unveiled on Monday night, I spoke to the folks at Qarnot Computing, This very interesting French company French company was showing Q.RAD, a computer built into a wall-mounted radiator that you can use to heat your home, and they'll pay for the electricity that does it.
LAS VEGAS - CES 2016. A decade ago, who would have thought that car companies would be leaders and big spenders in artificial intelligence and robotics? But here we are in 2016, and Toyota is announcing its all-star leadership team for its massive artificial intelligence and robotics research.
LAS VEGAS - Misfit is expanding its fitness tracker line again, but instead of a design that replaces your current watch, the new Ray looks like an extra piece of jewelry. Misfit introduced the Ray at CES in Las Vegas on Tuesday, and it looks decidedly different from other fitness trackers on the market.
CES 2016 is ramping up, and the TMO team is already seeing some pretty cool stuff. Bryan Chaffin and John F. Braun join Jeff Gamet to look at some of the products they saw yesterday, and unlike so many devices shown at CES, these are already shipping.
