What Will You See at 2021 CES?

Editor: It's not a typo... we did mean 2021 and not 2012. This is an excerpt from a speech at SinoCES by Gary Shapiro, CEA President and CEO. Gary has also authored the 2011 New York Times bestseller: The Comeback: How Innovation Will Restore the American Dream.

It’s exciting to think about what technology innovations will be unveiled at the 2012 International CES. Each year, the products launched at CES mold the future of our industry and challenge us to continue to innovate.  I often think about where our industry will be in ten years. Some 20 years ago, I gave a speech predicting the future of consumer technology. Thirteen years later, I was asked by the same organization to review those predictions. Some were extremely accurate. Others were on the right track. And some of my predictions were just plain wrong.

Today, I want to fast forward to the future and offer predictions of where the consumer technology market will be in ten years. So imagine that today is January 10, 2021, and the 2021 International CES has just wrapped up four days of the most innovative product launches in history. Here is just a small sampling of what we saw on the 2021 CES show floor.

Here are some of the most significant products and technologies from CES.

The order is random, and not intended to indicate any priority. The range of product at CES is wide-reaching so what may be game-changing for retailers selling mobile may be insignificant from the viewpoint of dealers focusing on PCs or TVs.

Intel’s WiDi: Consumers who wanted to connect laptops and PCs to their large plasma and LCD monitors typically needed either a direct video connection or the use of a media extender boxes (and only hoped to avoid a nasty time with limited functionality and file format incompatibilities).

Intel will change this with its new Wireless Display technology, known as WiD

Sharp’s Quad Pixel: Sharp introduces...YELLOW. Yes, that’s right. By adding yellow as a 4th colour to create a new RGB+Y technology for its Aquos LCD TVs, Sharp expects TV colours to be more natural and to reflect improved backlight .
