5 Disruptive Innovations at CES 2016
This year, according to our fitness trackers, we walked nearly twenty miles of convention show floor looking for innovations with the potential to dramatically disrupt existing businesses and industries—the better and cheaper offerings we call Big Bang Disruptors.
It was great to see companies we’ve written about in earlier years growing bigger, some steadily developing their new technologies and others taking off into the stratosphere.
Quell Wearable Pain Relief
The Parrot smart pot and the Quell pain management wrap are now commercial products, while longer-term but higher-potential start-ups including Veristride (smart shoe inserts to help with rehab), Kolibree (gamified toothbrushes), and Tobii (eye tracking hardware and software), have made progress finding business partners for their enabling technologies, which continue to improve.
Our most successful “graduate,” however, is Oculus, whose virtual reality hardware—finally for sale later this year for $599—was everywhere on the show floor, often to augment demos of other technology.
