The new Vivitar Speaker Smartbulb LB-120, which is both a speaker and a lightbulb that can be controlled with a smartphone app, is displayed at the CES 2016 Consumer Electronics Show. The HairMax Laserband, a hands-free device promoted to treat hair loss, is demonstrated at the opening event at the CES 2016 consumer electronics show in Las Vegas Jan. The newest cell phone came out; many will go out and buy it. A larger, thinner TV with a clearer picture just hit the shelves, get rid of the old TV for the bigger, better, newer version.
Examples of high-end gadgets include tablet PCs with rugged design for field work in harsh environments, electronic medical equipment, complex car systems with GPS, Bluetooth calls, voice commands and visual/audible traffic rerouting, as well as mobile entertainment devices like those Chinese sun glasses with built-in video playback functionality, which allows you to watch recorded shows or video clips while flying in a plane.
