Enterprises TV on the Cool Tech Toys from CES 2014

The International Consumer Electronics Show is taking place this week in Las Vegas. It is the annual show and buy exhibition of the best (and most expensive) electronic items in the world. Enterprises TV offers a brief review of some of the top tech trends on display. Giant curved TV screens or OLED (organic light-emitting diode) screens – These are flatter and provide a sharper image than the now standard LCD models. A 55 inch OLED screen costs $10,000. Smarter cars – The smart car makers are teaming up with the OS makers to bring us solar-powered cars and cars which tell us where they are parked with a smart wristband. We’re hoping they also automatically turn the car lights on when dark outside. Connected homes – This is not so much of a new technology trend as digital homes have been around for a while. Most of the big telecomm companies already provide ways to lock doors, turn the lights on and adjust the room temperature. What makes this trend a little more new is that soon we will be able to text our homes when away to adjust appliances for energy savings. Wearable tech – New and smarter glasses will come out as well as wearable health and wellness tech devices which monitor you or your dog. Some of the newer devices track how much REM sleep we get every night. Enterprises TV learns from many tech websites that health and fitness gadgets are big this year. There is also good news for tech start-ups as many of them have a booth and the chance to hob-nob with the big boys is easy. And no CES show is complete without the requisite celebrities, rockers and athletes popping by to ogle the latest and greatest toys. There will be much in tech news this week as the show officially gets started.
