CES Las Vegas

2015 CES International Highlights

Although, there were many interesting exhibits at the 2015 CES, I visited only areas that might interest baby-boomer women.

 
From the many interesting exhibits at the 2015 CES, I selected the following products for my review:

AURIA

If you use earphones to listen to music or podcasts while on the move, this product will interest you. I tested them and was surprised to learn that I could hold a normal conversation with the representative while listening to music. The design is different in that they don’t actually fit into the ear canal but conform to your ears and sit comfortably in place even after hours of use. The XFit System keeps earphones in place even during invigorating runs and strenuous gym workouts. The cables are non-tangling and their length is suitable for a variety of sporting activities. Key surfaces of the earphones are moisture resistant.

DRIVESAFE

If you drink alcoholic beverages, you’ll know that there is a cut-off time that you need to consider if you plan to get behind the wheel of your vehicle. The consequences of driving while impaired are extremely severe. Not only are you flirting with the possibility of losing your driver’s license and a big fine but more importantly, you might end someone’s life, including your own. The display screen on this personal Breath Alcohol Tester quickly reveals if your alcohol level is over the maximum limit. No more guessing if you’re OK to drive.

Most of us deal with Passwords everyday. We either make them so simple that hackers can steal our personal information in a matter of seconds or so complicated that we forget them. This company offers a device that reads your fingerprint allowing you access to all of your passwords. A further security step which is a tapping sound, confirms your identity. If you lose the device, the company is able to replace it with a unit that contains all of your previous passwords. No more memorizing weird rows of letters and digits which according to experts has been the best way to stay secure.

The Rhythm Touch™

This is an electric stimulation acu-therapy treatment used by most physical therapists, acupuncturists, and chiropractors. They claim that it is the most effective form of tension relief used by doctors for over 40 years. The low frequency acu-therapy will help relieve your body of tension and stiffness by combining the principles of massage, electricity, and muscle stimulation. It repeatedly contracts muscles by passing electrical currents through electrodes contacting the affected body area relieving stress and tension.
