Trends, Products, and Gadgets
Consumer Electronics Show 2019
With over 4,400 companies exhibiting new products and services, CES 2019 was a gadget lover’s paradise, and a window into the future of … well, everything. Anyone who described 2019 as “an off year” simply was unable to see the future in front of their face.
Making sense of it requires a small army of the savviest analysts you’ll find anywhere, so Digital Trends writers and editors walked hundreds of miles and spoke with scores of companies.
Along the way we were dazzled by laptops thin enough to disappear in a backpack, TVs that magically unroll from a box on command, and futuristic digital binoculars that made us wish for a 2019 remake of Rear Window. And we visited the metaverse. Yes, the metaverse.
Oddly enough, it was a fake burger that took our award for the top tech of CES. This is no mere recipe, of course, but food engineering and science at its finest. Impossible has loaded its next-gen burger with the iron-carrying molecule heme, which is part of what gives meat its distinctive flavor.
It’s also conspicuously absent in all the faux meat you’ve tried and hated. Impossible’s news is everything amazing about CES wrapped up in a bun, neatly underscoring the way that tech touches everything in our lives.
Beyond just burgers, we walked the Las Vegas Convention Center aiming to tease out the trends that will shape the year ahead in technology … and maybe play with some cool stuff along the way. Here’s what we learned, and how it will affect the products and tech that will shape your life in the year ahead.
