CES 2020 review

TV makers like Samsung, LG, and Sony were showcasing their flashiest 4K and 8K TVs shipping in 2020. Self-driving vehicles, and streaming or new video services were also on hand even before the Covid-19 pandemic. Over 180,000 people attended CES 2020. There were 4,500 exhibitors across 2.9 million square feet of space. The CES Consumer Electronics Show and its 53rd edition were definitely a big hit. Dell and Alienware were on hand, and showing the Concept UFO. The portable Windows PC, which mirrors the form factor of the Nintendo Switch, features an 8-inch display, kickstand, detachable controllers, and support for external devices like displays or a keyboard and mouse. The Segway S-Pod was on display. Basically a two-wheeled self-balancing stroller that can hit speeds of up to 24 miles per hour. Unlike other Segway products, you control the S-Pod with a joystick instead of your body, making it a little easier for some. There was also the Segway Ninebot T60 a type of Scooter that potentially could be shared for transportation. Several Gaming Monitors were on display. All of the Monitors had High resolutions, quick response times and many had high refresh rates such as 240Hz. LG’s new OLED ZX Real 8K TV which comes in 77- and 88-inch displays had some amazing specs, as Sony`s Z8H 8K LED TV. At either 75 or 85 inches, has full-array LED backlighting, can upscale 4K content, and supports Sony’s “Frame Tweeter” technology, which vibrates the frame itself for improved sound quality.

OLED TV`s have usually been expensive, however 2020 has seen a huge price drop. The new 4K Vizio OLED model looks as astonishing as higher-end TVs we’ve seen from LG and Sony.

L’Oreal Perso

This first-of-its-kind makeup and skincare mixer allows you to create custom formulas of lipstick and skincare products — something you had to do by hand until now. Load Perso with cartridges that either contain lipstick colors or various skincare ingredients (think moisturizer, vitamin C serums or SPF) and it gives you seemingly endless combinations.

BrainCo prosthetic hand

BrainCo’s AI-powered prosthetic hand works with an amputee’s brain waves and muscle signals to intuit the movement they want to make. It allows amputees to have a more full range of motion customized to their own body, compared to others on the market that offer a limited number of preprogrammed movements. It will also retail for between $10,000 to $15,000 — significantly less than other robotic options.

Lenovo Yoga 5G

A handful of 5G laptops are coming in 2020, but the Lenovo Yoga 5G is the first that will combine 5G with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8cx 5G Compute Platform. That means great battery life, low power consumption and, assuming 5G lives up to the hype, amazingly fast always-on connectivity.

LG ThinQ Washer with AI

LG looks like it will be one of the first brands to deliver on the promise of bringing meaningful AI to large appliances. Throw a load of clothes into the LG ThinQ washer and LG claims its technology will be able to detect the combination of different fabrics in your laundry and then recommend the most appropriate washing and drying cycles. This kind of AI-based recommendation engine is also in the works from various smart refrigerator manufacturers, but LG appears to have the edge among laundry appliance makers in terms of bringing this tech to market. LG says the ThinQ with AI line will go on sale in the first half of 2020.

GE Kitchen Hub microwave

A 27-inch Android tablet above your oven sounds awkward, but stand in front of a GE KitchenHub display and you get the appeal pretty quickly. From watching Netflix to following along with a recipe app, a full blown Android tablet has a lot of utility in the kitchen. Last year GE introduced the KitchenHub via a vent hood model. Here at CES 2020, GE takes the concept to its natural next step, packing a 1.9 cubic foot microwave behind the screen. The KitchenHub has a built-in camera for monitoring or Instagramming your stovetop food remotely, and another one for video chatting, but the real promise lies in the flexibility of having a large, Android-powered touchscreen in an accessible spot in your kitchen. GE won’t comment on pricing yet (the vent hood version sold for $1,200), but the new KitchenHub goes on sale later this year.

Dabby Dabby is a home entertainment device that consolidates every TV streaming service, free video site and social media site into one tablet-like box — saving you from toggling between all of the options when you’re looking for a certain show or video. It also includes a subscription manager to help you keep track of all of your different services, how much they cost and how often you use them, to fight subscription overload. It costs $400 and ships in April.

It remains to be seen if any other shows will actually take place this year.
