Unfortunately this year I was not able to attend CES 2011. CES is the largest International Consumer Electronics show and occurs annually. Electronic product creators use this show to display and announce their latest product innovations to the world.
This years CES did not disappoint. The Washington Post is reporting that the crowds were the largest in years! CNET has released it’s best of CES awards and I was very excited to review some of the cool innovations announced this year. The primary focus this year were the announcements about the numerous tablet options which will be brought to the public this year. While interesting iPad competitors like the Motorola Xoom do seem intriguing, there were other announcements that really got me excited. Here is a quick list of those announcements:
– Amazon has released a new App store that will allow for developers to sell Android apps in a central location.
– The MAC App store was released to the public with over a thousand apps
– LG announced the Smart Grid appliances with THINQ technology. These appliances include an Internet enabled washer, dryer, refrigerator, and oven that will tweet conditions to you via WiFi.
If you are a developer, the opportunities are endless for business ventures in just about any type of technology. The hardest part now is focus.
