LAS VEGAS, NV The 2011 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) closed its doors Sunday night, but left consumers with much to look forward to this year. Last year at this time, we hadn’t even seen the iPad yet, and now the whole industry is gearing up to pump out competitive tablets. With Google TV and 3D LCD screens, hi-def video and audio, improved gaming and GPS-enabled devices, this industry is not standing still.
Hundreds of thousands of square feet of convention center space were needed to house the over 2,700 vendors showing their newest and greatest products. It’s estimated that around 140,000 people came to strike deals and purchase the products you’ll be buying in 2011. With all those products and all those attendees, how do you pick the cream of the crop for this year?
Luckily, the Consumer Electronics Association already analyzed the newest of the new and picked a selection of what they considered the best of the best in technology, awarding them the “Innovation Awards for 2011.” One each of the award winners were displayed in showcases in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Join with me as I viewed the winners in the attached video. (Pardon the scratches and the dust on the photos in the video. The plastic-windowed showcases were quite bruised and scratched, and it was almost impossible to get a clean photo. )
