Remember when CES was all about new TVs and assorted digital doodads? Well, they are still there but increasingly the consumer electronics world had become all about new home furnishings products and technologies for household uses.
It’s clearly not your father’s CES anymore.
At this year’s show, held virtually of course and just completed, the range of product debuts for homes was no less impressive, important — and in some cases — wildly impractical than it has been over the past few years. Whether it was home security, health and wellness or a disturbing new toilet that provides far more information on your digestive tract than you ever wanted, the range of introductions once again showed the future of our homes…both good and bad.
