What’s new at CES

Posted at 5:53 PM, Jan 14, 2021

This week is usually a huge week for people in Vegas with CES which is the ultimate tech convention. Like so many things this past year, it had to go virtual. Tech expert Andera Smith says the trends this year are what we did last years which is that our homes really turned into our schools, our offices and our movie theaters and the companies get that. So, LG understands that we have been spending a lot of time in the kitchen these days. Their Insta-view door in door side-by-side refrigerator has some awesome new upgrades like UV nano technology in the water dispenser nozzle to help decrease bacteria and they increased the size of the Insta-view window. Knock twice to see what’s inside and grab what you want using the door in door feature without opening the whole fridge.

Andrea Smith tells us LG also has a new line of laptops. The LG gram laptop 17 has a stylish new design, all day battery life and productivity boosting 16:10 ratio. The 17 inch screen shows vivid colors and sharp clear images whether you’re working on spread sheets, school work or streaming a video.

Since we are relying on our smart phones for so much more, Andrea Smith says, the innovative form factor of LG WING is ideal for multitasking, gaming, and viewing content. You slide the display of the wing into swivel mode and it rotates 90 degrees revealing a second smaller screen giving you more screen real estate. You can check you emails on one screen while following a map on another. It has a built-in gimbal feature that holds the camera steady if are shooting video on the go.

Health and wellness have been an area of growth especially during the pandemic. Patients are being urged not to forget their regular medical care. United Healthcare is using technology to make it more convenient for members to access that care.

With kids going to school online, parents are trying to find ways to engage or entertain them away from the computer. Andrea Smith say we are finding products like the Toniebox. It is a screen-free digital listening experience designed to foster creativity and imagination in younger kids. It contains hours of content from classic storybook tales
