While the world revolves at its normal speed, tech developers are constantly ramping up the speed of innovation and technology. The result is the future-forward Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, where developers and techies gather from around the world in the interest of breakthrough technologies. Peter Salib, a columnist for Grit Daily News, attended the conference and shares the newest tech with Bold TV.
The technology displayed at CES 2020 wasn’t only for big companies. There was tech that individuals could use in daily life from gaming to health care. Gamers wear the Telsa suit while playing an active video game. Through its technology, players can feel pain as if they were their digital character. But in the health care world, there is tech to take away the pain. Quell is a product worn on the calf that helps the brain produce more of its natural pain-blocking chemicals. While technology is used to improve the lives of individuals, there is a sector of innovation dedicated to improving the efficiency of entire cities. 5G internet connection will power these “Smart Cities” that will help sensors gather and transmit data in real-time. This technology will help city officials make better, more informed decisions at near-instant speeds.
With the discussion of futuristic innovations comes the anxieties of what will change for the worse. Questions of the eradication of human labor or the loss of privacy are at the top of critics’ lists. The job field has adapted to technology through the years, but only time will tell the scope and type of impact better technology will have. But conferences like CES remind the world that technology continues to advance whether or not we follow.
