The New Tech Products To Add To Your Home Now
Every year at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES), we marvel at all the new tech, gaze at the new cars, and generally dream about an unlimited bank account to deck our houses out with all the newest gadgets. But, the reality is that some of the things we see never come to market, some look thrilling but way over promise on a functionality scale, and some are just plain head-scratching.
So, this year we took a look at CES from the viewpoint of what’s most wanted and perhaps even most practical, for today’s consumers. Here’s the stuff we saw at CES this year that can add a little something (or a whole lot) to your house.
When it comes to appliances showcased at CES, there are typically some big wins, and then some curious other stuff. Eater called this year’s show “a Jetsons-esque carnival of futuristic electronics, homewares, and appliances,” which would be a hilarious description if it didn’t also ring true. “For every item that shows innovation or promise, there’s at least one more that appears to be the product of a failed brainstorming session where somebody suggests, “why not make this appliance connect to the internet?”
While some experts were generally unimpressed with appliances that did little to best last year’s reveals, there were a few that shined, including the Panasonic Countertop Induction Oven. “It quickly grills, bakes, re-heats and requires little or no preheating, resulting in perfectly cooked meals,” said Panasonic. The appliance was selected as one of CES’ 2017 Innovation Award Honorees and is available now for $599.95.
