January 5 to 8, 2017 (Las Vegas, Nevada): The 50th edition of the International CES started with two (2) press days as opposed to the traditional single press days of past CESs. The first press day was highlighted by the global launch of the Huawei's Honor 6X smartphone that follows the most recent launch of its flagship, Honor 8, launched this past fall. Also, during the first press day was the Fiat Chrysler America group press conference and thereafter the traditional CES Unveiled for up and coming new products on display. Examples of CES Unveiled products include at the all electric ELI Zero from Beijing, the Smartcane, the Benjilock and the award winning BLINK home video camera system. The five trends to expect from the 2017 CES were: 1. The New Voice of Computing: Amazon's Alexa leading the field; 2. Artificial Intellignence (AI) Infusion; 3. Connections and Computations: Wearables have realized tremendous growth in the last five years and the 2017 was no exception were wearables go "beyond the wrist"; 4. Transportation Transformation: Autonormous Driving and Drive-Assist Technologies highlight the automobile industry's trends as well as Drones; and 5. Digitization of the Consumer Experience: the magnificent seven of technology (tablet, laptop, ipod, smart TV, smart phone, smart camera and desktop), Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR). Examples of new launches come from Audio-Technica who introduced two new wireless completely digital (no analogue conversion) noise-cancelling headphones and Secur's waterproof container with light. Celebrities included NBA stars Shaquille O'Neal and NFL Hall of Famer, Joe Montana. Wearables including Fitbit, Under Armour and the Fossil Group highlighted the booths at the Sands Convention Center. Finally, the global launch of the ELI Zero: a short range electric car for the urban consumer with a range of 40 to 70 miles.
