For the First time, with the World Liberty TV, Technology Channel , since we have been attending CES for the past 16 years, we had to stay home and be part of CES 2021, virtual. Due to the pandemic , not the same thing as being there in person on an annual basis.
But we had to make the best of Virtual CES 2021, like many other fellow media journalists worldwide and attendee’s.
We watched the the following press conferences below who debuted new products for their companies.
LG:CES 2021 marks the eighth consecutive year that LG OLED TVs, sound bars, home appliances, premium smartphones and more have all received CES Innovation Awards, the official industry recognition for the most innovative products introduced at CES, the global stage for innovation.
LG Home Entertainment: Particularly noteworthy for 2021 are LG’s latest entertainment products including LG OLED, LG NanoCell, NEXTGEN TVs and TONE Free earbuds. More details on specific LG Home Entertainment products honored will be announced at CES 2021 in January.
LG Home Appliances: CES 2021 Innovation Awards will go to new LG home appliances anchored by several LG Insta View Door-in-Door refrigerators, the WashTower™ single-unit laundry solution that takes up half the floor space while tackling ultra-large loads, the LG CordZero ThinQ Vacuum, and other laundry and air care solutions including PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier to be announced at CES.
LG Mobile Phones: Leading LG’s multiple CES Innovation Awards for mobile devices is the groundbreaking LG WING, the world’s first 5G swivel smartphone. Featuring a 6.8-inch P-OLED FullVision edge-to-edge screen that swivels clockwise to rotate 90 degrees and reveal a second 3.9-inch OLED display, the first smartphone in LG’s Explorer Project delivers a compelling, new multi-screen experience on the latest 5G networks. Also earning the CES 2021 Innovation Award is the LG VELVET, packed with a 6.8-inch OLED Cinematic FullVision display, versatile cameras and powerful 5G speeds at an exceptional value.
Samsung: Seung kicked off the live-streamed press conference by noting the changes all have us have experienced since last year’s CES and the impact this has had not only on the way we live, but also on how we use technology in our daily lives.
One such innovation is the Samsung Bespoke 4-Door Flex refrigerator, the latest addition to Samsung’s customizable Bespoke refrigerator lineup and the first Bespoke product to launch in the U.S. market. “Samsung Bespoke 4-Door Flex comes with even more ways to customize your kitchen for both form and function,” highlighted Seung of the refrigerator’s innovative design that allows users to tailor the product to their own preferences.
The second innovation introduced by Seung was designed with the understanding that, following the way the concept of the living space has changed over the past year, users’ needs have also changed as they require personalized product experiences everywhere in their homes. “We think your TV should reflect these changes,” he noted, going on to highlight the Samsung Lifestyle TV lineup as an example of the company’s efforts to provide innovations that reflect the changing tastes and needs of consumers. Seung then went on to unveil the brand-new 110-inch MICRO LED, a breakthrough product packed with new features to let users customize their space and their experiences as they wish.
He then introduced a special guest to the stage – the brand-new JetBot 90 AI+, a robot vacuum fitted with smart object recognition technology for intelligent cleaning. Seung went on to showcase that the JetBot 90 AI+ is fitted with LiDAR and 3D sensors for location mapping.
Bosch: CES 2021: Bosch puts its faith in AI and connectivity – for the protection of people and the environment.
To improve people’s health and to protect our planet, Bosch is counting on AIoT, taking advantage of the possibilities offered by data, artificial intelligence, and the internet of things to benefit people and the environment with technical solutions. “We combine AI and connectivity to form the AIoT, which helps us improve energy efficiency and fight the coronavirus,” says Michael Bolle, Bosch board of management member. “AIoT offers enormous potential. We are already unlocking this potential and plan to expand our efforts in the future.” Under the tagline “Sustainable #LikeABosch,” the company will be presenting intelligent, sustainable solutions for health, living, and mobility at the virtual tech trade fair CES 2021.
Among the innovations Bosch is debuting at the tech show is the world’s first self-learning AI sensor for wearables and hearables in fitness tracking. Since the AI runs on the sensor itself (edge AI), there’s no longer any need for an internet connection during an exercise session – this improves energy efficiency and data privacy. The company is also presenting a sensor that measures factors such as air quality and relative humidity. This delivers information about the concentration of aerosols in the air – data that has become especially important in the fight against the coronavirus. Bosch security cameras can also help in the fight against the virus. AI makes it possible for them to execute a wide array of customer-specific applications. For example, a new camera solution with integrated intelligent video analysis measures body temperature contactlessly, anonymously, and with high precision – with a maximum deviation of half a degree. Moreover, using a software solution for the open camera platform of the Bosch startup Security and Safety Things, these cameras can detect whether the number of people in a shop complies with the prevailing coronavirus restrictions.
This platform was designated a 2021 CES® Innovation Award Honoree, making it one of four Bosch solutions singled out this year. Another premiere is a portable hemoglobin monitor that can detect anemia by means of a finger scan. The device is particularly well suited for regions that have insufficient access to medical care. Equipped with AI, the hemoglobin monitor delivers a result within 30 seconds – no lab test or blood draw necessary.
Sony: Sony Corporation (“Sony”) is showcasing its latest initiatives based on the theme of “Redefining Our Future with Tomorrow’s Technologies” at the all-digital CES 2021.
Sony is leveraging its “3R Technology” – Reality, Real-time, and Remote – to inspire Kando (emotion) through the power of entertainment, and also provide the assurance that supports these experiences. Sony’s presence at CES 2021 is structured around 12 topics showcasing how these 3R technologies are contributing to the latest developments in areas such as Tools and Solutions designed to empower content creation; Immersive Entertainment Experiences; Technology for a Better Future.
