CES 2016 Wrap-up Top Ten Cool Products


Las Vegas is a dizzying town.  Layer in CES, and it is a test of putting your blinders on to pay attention to what is most interesting.   What actually has staying power, and pushes the envelope?   The deep trends I saw this year are around IoT Homes, Drones, and Wearables. I’m passionate about IoT, especially when my CEO is talking about the next era of computing – how cognitive will transform everything.  CES isn’t just about products, but what is powering these products (check out Ginni Rometty’s Keynote at CES )

Also to note, is the rapid prototyping coming out of Shenzhen .  Its easier than ever to move fast with physical/IoT product design.  If you can imagine it, it can happen pretty fast.   Here are my favorites, and a laundry list of other stand-outs.
