Here’s a look at some of the best products that were on display at CES 2024
January 19, 2024
This year’s CES was host to more than 4,000 exhibitors, including 1,400 startups, showcasing their latest innovations across a range of industries. Smart home and connected vehicle products took center stage, as did robotics for both domestic and commercial applications.
Sustainability, personalization and ease-of-use were the primary trends leading the product design, with companies across industries leveraging automation, AI and next-generation sensors to make devices smarter, stronger and more sustainable.
Here are some product highlights from this year’s show.
Bosch debuted its BMA530 and BMA580 at CES 2024, which it says are the world's smallest MEMS accelerometers.
The BMA530 tracks activities with its step counter and is especially suitable for wearables, while the BMA580 targets hearables with voice activity detection.
The designs have a 76% smaller footprint than Bosch’s previous accelerometer, making them easy to place on a PCB, and their integrated features make them easy for design engineers to integrate into their portable products.
"The demand for tiny sensors with ever-increasing performance is growing as the industry moves towards more stylish and minimalist designs that require smaller sensors," said Stefan Finkbeiner, Bosch Sensortec’s CEO. "The new BMA530 and BMA580 provide an ultra-compact, fully-featured solution to meet this demand."
Additionally, the BMA580 uses bone conduction to detect the user’s voice by its vibration, turning the microphone on only once these vibrations are detected – for an overall power saving.
Orbbec’s Robotic Vision System
Orbbec, a 3D vision systems developer, announced the launch of its new robotic vision system, the Gemini 2 XL at CES 2024.
The Gemini 2 XL is a long-range, 3D camera that Orbbec said is ideal as the primary visual system for a variety of robots and AI-based surveillance systems, providing accurate and reliable data in various lighting conditions, including direct sunlight and outdoor environments.
Orbbec also said the system would be helpful for intelligent robots that need accurate depth perception.
The system is fitted with deep learning algorithms that generate a complete map of even small objects and fixtures.
“We are excited to demonstrate the superior capabilities of Gemini 2 XL at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show,” said David Chen, Orbbec’s head of products. “As Orbbec’s learning library continues to expand, the camera’s capabilities will continue to improve, broadening its applicability in robotics and AI-based vision solutions.”
Stradvision’s New Driving Assistance Tech
Stradvision, an automotive company creating perception tech for autonomous vehicles, unveiled its new driving assistance tech at CES 2024.
The tech, which the company said will “revolutionize” the autonomous driving industry, will be integrated into Stradvision’s SVNet system, providing a scalable advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) service across all levels of autonomy.
Under the new updates, SVNet will integrate Texas Instruments’ automotive processors into its ADAS system to improve its scalability and innovation.
Stradvision said the update marks the first production use of the next-gen 3D Perception Network, slated for the fourth quarter of 2024, in a “milestone move” for the company.
Samsung spinoff pixelRo unveiled its AI-enabled digital eye care technologies at this year’s CES.
The Seoul-based company showcased its flagship NENOON App and NENOON Kiosk at this year’s CES, along with other vision protection products such as smartphones and monitor blue light-blocking films.
The NENOON App, which is accessible via smartphone, offers users self-monitoring services to test their eye health, with the app offering personalized eye exercise recommendations, eye health history management and regular wellness assessments to help track and monitor their vision.
The NENOON Kiosk is also designed to help users access eye care services. The device, which looks like an iPad, comes with several vision assessment tests, including for near and distance vision, and macular degeneration self-diagnosis.
Shiftall’s Metaverse Accessories
Shiftall unveiled three new products at this year’s CES, the 'MeganeX superlight' VR Headset, a full body tracking device for the metaverse and a wireless, soundproof microphone.
The new accessories are designed to create a more immersive and comfortable metaverse experience for users, with the VR headset designed to be more lightweight than other designs, being 50% lighter than Shiftall’s previous headset iteration.
The full-body, wireless tracking device, the HaritoraX, is fitted with next-generation sensors, “automatically correcting errors through optical recognition by dedicated cameras”, a company post said.
Finally, the soundproof microphone, mutalk 2, prevents voice leakage and ambient noise and is designed for enhanced privacy for remote meetings, the Metaverse, and online gaming.
Morse Micro, Edgecore Networks Launch New Wi-Fi HaLow Platform
Morse Micro, a Wi-Fi HaLow silicon vendor, and Edgecore Networks, a telecommunication service provider, unveiled a new Wi-Fi HaLow router at this year’s CES.
The partners said the new router, the Edgecore EAP112, is designed to meet the “rapidly growing demands” of IoT applications, with particular use cases in outdoor settings.
The router can connect thousands of IoT devices through a single source, which the companies said is a “significant advancement” in IoT connectivity solutions.
“Our collaboration with Edgecore represents a pivotal moment in Morse Micro’s journey to redefine wireless connectivity for the IoT with Wi-Fi HaLow technology," said Michael De Nil, Morse’s CEO. "The integration of our Wi-Fi HaLow module into Edgecore’s EAP112 access point/router platform exemplifies our commitment to expanding long-range connectivity options for the growing IoT ecosystem.”
LetinAR showcased its AR smart glasses at CES, using its new PinTILT lens that the company said brings AR optics “to the next level.”
The new “FrontiAR Pro” optical system is based on PinTILT, with particular capabilities to overcome the issue of brightness uniformity, which it said has been the greatest challenge to existing AR optical systems.
“On top of that, the image quality, an existing strength, has been further improved so that it can be easily worn like regular glasses,” the company said in a statement.
“It was LetinAR’s strong technological base that enabled us to not only overcome the limitations of the existing AR optical system but also to overcome the vertical viewing angle issue, which has been regarded as a major technological challenge," said Jaehyeok Kim, LetinAR’s CEO. "I’m glad to demonstrate diverse smart glasses launched by our global customers all around the world at CES 2024."
Genesis Systems debuted its new home appliance, the WaterCube 100, at CES.
The design uses Renewable Water from Air (RWA) technology to generate more than 100 gallons of fresh water each day — enough for a household of four — from the air.
The company previously released its WaterCube 1000, which generates 1,000 gallons of water per day and is designed for deployment within villages and towns. The smaller-scale model marks the company’s move into the consumer market, intended for home or office deployment.
Lumen, a company that creates assistive tech to help people manage disabilities, showcased its glasses for the blind that the company says replicate the main features of a guide dog.
The glasses use the same technology as self-driving vehicles but scaled down to a wearable size to help a wearer navigate through their environment.
Luman says their solution responds to the need for a scalable assistive solution for the blind, with guide dogs being a costly alternative that currently helps only a small portion of the world’s blind and visually impaired.
