Today marks the annual return of the world's biggest consumer gadget trade show, CES, which takes place in Las Vegas. The place where all of the major digital and tech brands go to unveil their future innovations, recent years have shown that a broader and broader set of brands are going to CES to showcase their shiny new inventions. This year our interest has already been piqued by a certain car company and some eyewear manufacturers...
It has been reported in the UK media that wearable tech is going to be one of the big three trends at CES, and Google Glass and other glass-type innovations are catching our attention. In particular:
- Hyundai and Google Glass are announcing a Glass-integrated car
- Google itself is announcing a range of prescription glasses, meaning more 'normal' eye gear than the current Google Glass headset
- And Innovega is set to unveil augmented reality contact lenses, meaning your digital dashboard goes direct to your eyeball
We're big fans of wearable tech, augmented reality and tech trends, so we'll be tracking further developments this week closely (as well as queuing for these contact lenses of course, so we can monitor the interwebs more closely).
