“So, what’s the coolest thing you’ve seen at CES® 2018?”
That’s a question we were asked, on Thursday morning.
It’s not an easy one to answer.
Maybe it was the “Cinema Snowglobe” to which you can add your own videos, in Eureka Park Marketplace™.
Or–it might have been the incredible maker kits which Xyla Foxlin, Alli Hoytt and company had on hand, through startup Beauty and the Bolt.
These are project kits that take the “intimidation factor” right out of coding, science and math!
While still in the Eureka Park area, we were wowed by TheBeamer. This startup currently is offering Episode 1 of a new computer game, Mission KT.
The game, which creators Peter and Sally Solomon developed with input from their twelve grandchildren, involves dinosaurs and missions to be accomplished.
Players learn physics, history, math and more while rescuing animals.
Another of many of Eureka Park™’s cool aspects was non-technology-based.
Visitors were asked to share what had inspired them most!
Meanwhile, outside Eureka Park™…
Of course, CES® 2018 features 2.5 million net square feet of exhibit space. And the show’s happening in eleven official venues in Las Vegas! Seeing everything would be impossible.
But outside of Eureka Park™, our personal “Whoa!” included…
Seven Dreamers Laboratories, Inc’s “Laundroid” robot, which Seven Dreamers President and CEO Dr. Shin Sakane was kind enough to demonstrate.
This is the world’s first laundry-folding robot!
Twelve years in development, it’s going to be making its debut in both Tokyo and the U.S. (San Francisco!) on January 25th.
Since then, Ozobot has come out with an even-smaller programmable robot: Evo. And for 2018, the original version of Ozobot was back at CES®.
And its developers had created a new game which drove us crazy–in the best possible way! (As in, “No! I can’t believe I didn’t get it! Let me try again!”)
Also, as mentioned in our Day One roundup, Tobii Eye Tracking Technology has a game that’s a don’t-miss. We won’t ruin it by telling you what’s upstairs.
Suffice it to say, it’s virtual reality that’s seriously cool. You will have to stand in line for this one–and it will be completely worth the wait. We didn’t want to leave!
So–what was the coolest thing we saw, at CES® 2018?
Well–no way could we choose ONE favorite. So we’ll turn that around on you.
With today as the last day of CES® 2018, what’s the coolest thing that’s made you go, “Whoa!”?
You have a few more hours to come up with, or add to, your answer.
