CES 2016 Trends

The most notable new trend at this years CES 2016 was the resurgence of Virtual Reality (VR), which is partially due to the recent consumer launch of the Oculus Rift and other VR head-mounted display’s. The comeback was also due to the huge new trend in 360° cameras that can provide content for the VR medium. Drones continue to evolve with a focus on more professional features, functionalities, and high-end price tags to match.

The company has created a smart showerhead that attaches to your existing shower pipe and lights up in various colors to let you know how much water you’ve used.

The best market segment mash up in transportation was the Ehang 184, which combines drone technology and self driving into an autonomous aerial vehicle for humans.
