11 Jan Honey, EMIE and TP-LINK at CES 2016
The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas last week was a chance for established and emerging tech companies alike to show off their prototypes and future trending gadgets. The Honey team were at CES with clients TP-LINK and EMIE, two companies we are helping to grow and globalise. Here’s what we thought of this year’s show.
“A lot of focus was given to Virtual Reality (VR) devices and drones, with VR the main highlight and the technology to watch for 2016. A great feature was “Shenzhen Alley”, which showed off the positively strong range of Chinese tech companies now offering consumer technology products. Here innovative founders and engineers made their mark alongside more established western brands.
“TP-LINK’s stand was more impressive than ever, with the launch of new products and experiential demos. Amongst the technology on display were the Talon and OnHub routers, and the ‘connected home’ that was built to demonstrate how its wide range of products work in the domestic environment.
“The Talon got a lot attention – it’s a new router that allows you to download a 4K movie in four minutes, at about seven gigabits per second, over multiple frequencies for strength and stability.
“EMIE unveiled its Nevo smartwatch alongside the Solo One speaker and colourful, cool power banks. The Nevo has seen success on Indiegogo and is now in production for a wider global roll-out.
“Tech to avoid? Definitely hover-boards given the negative media coverage of faulty batteries and unclear legislation.”
