CES 2017: Here are snapshots of a few innovative products being demonstrated at CES this week
Headlining now at CES 2017: A home security system that doesn’t use cameras, a smart bicycle with touchscreen display and a patio umbrella with the intelligence to rotate toward the sun at all times.
These are but three of thousands of new and intriguing products that debuted Jan. 3 at the International Consumer Electronics Show, which is ingesting Las Vegas through Jan. 8.
An estimated 177,000 attendees have flooded the city of 603,488, boosting the number of inhabitants by a whopping 28 percent for most of the week.
Here are snapshots of a few innovative products being demonstrated at CES this week. eWEEK will have more product news as the conference goes on.
No Cameras Needed in This Home Security Setup
Cognitive Systems Corp. announced Aura, which it claims is the first smart home security system that monitors and protects the home without the use of cameras.
The easy-to-use and discrete two-piece system uses the company’s patented technology to monitor the disruption of wireless signals caused by movement in the home, sending notifications to household members when any unauthorized motion occurs in the home.
Aura provides full coverage for the average home, even in rooms where people are typically unwilling to place cameras.
Aura’s accuracy is above those of other motion detection systems, since it is not dependent on light and recognizes the difference between human and non-human movement, the company said.
Starting Jan. 5, Aura will be available for pre-order here for $499, with a special price of $399 for a limited time during CES. Orders are expected to ship by Feb. 28, the company said.
Next-Generation Smart Bikes
China-based LeEco’s new smart bicycles for the U.S. feature an Android-powered BikeOS with touchscreen display that helps cyclists navigate rides and track performance.
The LeEco Smart Road Bike, which has been recognized as a CES Innovation Honoree, features an aerodynamic Toray T700 carbon fiber frame, fork, seat post, handlebar and wheels, while weighing in at a mere 18.5 pounds. With an 11-speed one-by drivetrain, the bike uses a single chain ring up front and a wide-range cassette in back, eliminating two-derailleur coordinated shifting.
Other components include lightweight brake set with dual-pivot technology, paired with shift/brake levers, mounted to a strong and lightweight carbon fiber handlebar.
