Welcome to our day one CES coverage. Scroll down to read about the most interesting emerging technologies we saw across 5G, smart home, robotics, mobility, wearables, mixed reality, and more.
In the smart home sector, CES Media Day was dominated by smart assistant-enabled security solutions, air purifiers, and, of course, smart toilets. A few of the highlights:
Hex Home (by Origin Wireless AI): This wave-based system is one of the more unique home security options we saw. The user downloads an app and connects the system’s two devices (a surface pod and a wall plug-in) to Wi-Fi. Then, it monitors the home using Wi-Fi waves—which bend and break as people move around them—and sends an alert when out-of-the-ordinary motion is detected.
