The 2016 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) went on as usual this past January in Las Vegas. This famous electronics show has been showing off current and trending innovative technology for 40 plus years, as well as shown the world how things are evolving.
The executive vice president of Banco BMG Marico Alaor reported that this year’s big headliners were a passenger drone, electric vehicles, and everyday items for the home that have cameras on them.
Marcio Alaor is the executive who takes executive vice president of Banco BMG, which leads Brazil in both personal and payroll loans. Alaor is known as a top business person in Brazil. BMG sponsors Brazilian football, and its logo appears on several teams.
Alaor is also known to be a great supporter of the local area where he is from in Brazil. He hasn’t forgotten his roots to his homeland and is known for using the bank to help the local community.
While several drones were shown off at CES 2016 – due to what Street Light Films reported, the Ehang 184 is different, it can carry a person and is like a small flying car. However, you don’t have to drive it, as it is programmed for its flight. It can fly up to 23 minutes, at a height up to 3.5 kilometers. It is made by Ehang, a Chinese company. The drone is controlled via a control center, which can take over it if necessary. You can see it in action at: http://bit.ly/1ITJrj0.
Electric cars were also present by Alaor, who showed off GM’s Chevrolet Bolt, which is expected out in 2017 at a cost of $30,000. Ford and Volkswagen also expect to put out hybrid cars, with Ford putting out 13 by 2020. Volkswagen plans to redo the classic Kombi, by creating an electric version prototype.
Additionally, now cameras are appearing on all kinds of objects. For instance, What if you wonder if you forgot milk as you are shopping at the store? Your fridge can send you a picture of the inside and you can check it out for yourself. That fridge will cost about $5K.
The very first CES was in 1967 and held in NYC. It has highlighted many new items such as the VCR in 1970, CD Players in 1981, DVDs in 1996, plasma TVs in 2001, and Blu-Ray DVDs in 2003. Next year’s 2017 CES is scheduled for January 5-8.
