The Best of CES 2016 – Cool Gadgets to Next Gen Tech

It’s always a crazy ride being on display in Las Vegas @ CES and this year was no exception!  While Lynktec’s Reeljuice Power Bank with its integrated 4 foot cord garnered its own fair share of attention, some of us also got a chance to check out some super interesting new tech that we thought you might like to see!

Best of Booth Award:  Reeljuice


Reeljuice Portable Power Bank, 4 Feet of Freedom to get the power you need

Reeljuice is an external battery pack for mobile devices that integrates a 48" retractable charging cable, so you always have four feet of freedom to get the power you need. This all-in-one charging solution includes both an MFI Lightning Adapter and a micro-USB connector and a removable USB charging module so that no extra cables or cords are required.

Best VR Award:  Oculus Rift

Virtual reality tech moves from something just previewed at meetings and tech conventions to something gamers and consumers start to use at home.
Consumer-ready VR headsets are finally set for retail launches in 2016  The Oculus Rift combination of the headset itself, spatial audio, Oculus Touch controllers (which "give you hands" inside virtual worlds) and – most importantly – its market-leading lineup of launch games makes it the VR headset to look for this year.

Best Smart Car: Chevy Bolt EV 

With the ongoing development of Smart Transportation, it seems like CES has been taken over by car companies. The transportation world is transforming quicker than it ever has before and the Chevy Bolt is the electric and connected car for everyone. According to endgadget, it's “the consumers high-tech vehicle and it'll ready before the end of the year”.  http://www.engadget.com/2016/01/08/presenting-the-best-of-ces-2016-winners/

Best Smart Appliance: Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator
The Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator is a genuinely smart appliance unlike some of the unimpressive smart fridges in the past. With a 21.5-inch, 1080p touch screen built into the right door, you can leave notes for your family, set calendar reminders, and display artwork, just like a regular fridge. But there are also connected cameras inside that can show you what's in the fridge while you're at the grocery store, so you don't overbuy or forget something important. And if you don't have time for the store, you can order what you need right from the refrigerator itself. How cool is that! Price tag might turn you a little cold ‘tho:   it starts at $5,000.

Newest Apple TV Release

The Newest Apple TV Release 

Who doesn’t love TV and now with Apple’s new launch of their Apple TV 4 upcoming in either later this October or November (perfect release time for Black Friday/Holiday shopping) should make the viewing experience even more pleasurable than before.

Newest Apple TV design 

What’s different? 

New Siri Remote

Have you ever felt too tired and didn’t have enough energy to just flick through the channels? Well, Apple in their 4th generation Apple TV has made their remote your new best friend when viewing TV. They have made several updates that will ease your viewing experience.

Siri features: Don’t you hate it when your thumb is too weak and you don’t quite have the energy to click through the channels? You now have a Siri button option where you can tell her to “show me comedy TV shows” or  "go to Netflix.” You can even become incredibly specific and ask to view a particular Breaking Bad episode and she will turn it on for you.

The physical remote itself has a new sleek design with a glass touch-surface on top, which makes swiping back and forth between movie selections, the simplest task in the world.

New remote with Siri and swiping capabilities

Apple has also added a Bluetooth feature to the remote which will allow you to be anywhere in the room and change what you are watching without having to physically point it at the TV.

Sure, this all looks great, but how much does this cost? Currently the 3rd generation Apple TV is selling for about $70 (USD), but the new 4th generation is slated to sell for a whopping $149. This dramatic raise in price may have Apple lose some of its consumers?

Is the price too much for you and you’re curious where you could find a product similar? Check out:

The Roku 2

 cost anywhere from $49-$129, depending upon the player you are looking for 







Google Chromecast
Amazon Fire TV
Google Chromecast: easy plugin, priced at $35






                     Amazon Fire TV: Found exclusively on amazon for $99 








Google Nexus Player: Costs: $99

But if you can’t resist the Apple charm, I’m sure Siri will be good to you and make your TV-life enjoyable
