HP Hearing Pro
First up, we have Hearing Pro from Nuheara, a startup whose tech has been licensed by HP. This is a pair of hearing aids that look more like true wireless Bluetooth earphones and even have HP logos on them. The company claims it has improved understanding of speech by 30 percent and these devices can be self-fitted and calibrated. This product comes equipped with active noise cancellation and multiple clinical tests have been performed to make sure it is safe to use for long periods of time. More importantly, it’s a fraction of the cost of traditional hearing aids, and can be sold in retail.
German Bionic: Exoskeleton
This futuristic-looking exoskeleton is from the brand German Bionic. The company manufactures wearable technology and this is one of the products it showcased at the event. This exoskeleton aids in heavy lifting using machine power. It could be a revolutionary product for workers involved in labour-intensive jobs.
Miraxess Mirabook and Miradock
With all the computational power that smartphones now have, startup Miraxess thinks it’s only logical to replace your old laptop and desktop with phone-powered terminals. The Mirabook and Miradock can connect to your smartphone, giving you a bigger screen, keyboard and trackpad or mouse, so you can use it as a full-fledged laptop or desktop. The Mirabook and Miradock work with certain Samsung, Huawei and Motorola phones, letting you be more productive and manage your data on one device.
If snoring is a problem for you, it will also affect people around you. The company Motion Pillow has designed a unique product that uses sensors to prevent snoring and make sleep more comfortable. It uses a specifically designed algorithm and a pillow with multiple air pockets to reposition the head of its user by analysing snoring sounds and counteracting your sleeping position.
Icoma Tatamel Bike
Last, we have a portable foldable bike from the Japanese company Icoma. This brand had launched a portable bike before, but the one showcased at the CES has an integrated screen on the side that can be used for advertising. The side panel is customisable so you can have any material or finish, not just a screen. The bike folds into a compact box for easy storage and it can be charged quickly at home.
