Amid the sparkle of the slot machines and glittery marquees, something different lit up Las Vegas last week: CES, the annual International Consumer Electronics Show, where almost 200,000 people came to show off and scope out the technology of the future.
“This year was especially interesting because you see the convergence of technology with experience and humanity — from wearables to auto and immersive gaming to healthcare,” says Enrique Lores, president, imaging, printing and solutions at HP.
HP debuted new PC products with innovations in privacy, security and mobile working at this year’s show. HP executives were also onsite, touring the bustling showroom floor and speaking on topics such as personalization, gender equality and how virtual reality is transforming the retail shopping experience.
“It's not always about technology for the sake of technology,” says Karen Kahn, chief communications officer at HP. “I think people are getting on board with the fact that you can show up at a place like this and talk about not just the future, but things that actually make the world better.”
Let’s take a look at some of the biggest trends that emerged at CES 2019.
