Between insane weather on the way out and animals gone wild upon return, it was “Man Against Nature” for CES 2014. Despite claims of 2013 being a lost year in tech and others suggesting CES was quiet, the trend is quite clear — what we’re seeing is a fragmented state of massive transition, and we’re collectively getting wired up with a variety of experimentation here in the eye of the storm. And when we work our way through to the other side EVERYTHING will be connected. And, no, we’re not calling it The Internet of Things.
There will always be larger, better, televisions out of CES… with new features to temp us to upgrade at faster frequency than industry experienced for decades leading leading up to the HD (and digital) transition. But the real news is the the scope of connected devices along with those attempting to wrangle them.
Get ready to say hello to your virtually sentient home, auto, and wristwear.
