I attended The Gadget Show Live. There were a lot of drones, great for videos that we’re creating for our learning programmes. Go Pro cameras, which we have recently purchased for filming in the team. We’re looking at creating a video channel with engineer recorded footage.
A lot of talk about Smart watches, not so many early adopters as yet. But, you need a phone as well as a watch! Also culturally it’s rude to look at your watch whilst talking to someone.
Smart glasses were demoed, Google Glass has been phased out. The Epson Moverio looks awesome. My team at HomeServe are currently experimenting with Google Cardboard. Virtual learning with our engineer population would be good.
3D printers are more readily available, not too sure on how to utilise one currently. Apart from creating 3D houses as our business is a home assistance company.
A few companies offering motion sensors to create a smart home. Similar to Hive. Homeserve are experimenting with the Tado system, http://www.homeserve.com/tado.
Did anyone else attend the show this year? Your thoughts about the show?
