Last week I traveled out to Las Vegas for the worlds largest convention of tech minds and products.
I was there for exactly 24 hours and I filled every second of my time meeting with clients and discovering the newest family tech trends. From washing machines that might even make washing clothes fun to much smarter and earth friendlier dryers, I left with a renewed sense of how exciting 2015 is going to be for tech products that will make our lives better and easier.
I started my day learning about LG’s new Twin Wash Washing Machine.
It’s a washing machine under a washing machine that can be used at the same time as the top unit. That was a lot to say… but what is really great about this is that you can wash items separate, but at the same time. This would be perfect for those that use cloth diapers or for my husbands work shirts, just to name a couple uses.
My next stop was with BOSCH where I saw the Dremel 3D Idea Builder.
I was mesmerized by this cool product! You can program what you want it to make and then sit back and let it do it’s job. For someone like me that is not crafty in the sense that I can’t draw or knit… but I can come up with super crafty ideas, this is revolutionary. It even made this frog!
Since I’m going to be buying a dryer soon I was really into the innovations being made with them.
The Whirlpool HybridCare™ Heat Pump Dryer is something I’m going to be watching. It recycles the heat to continue drying the clothes instead of having to heat more. Brilliant if you ask me. Because clothes can take longer to dry with this technology the hybrid aspect was added in so that if you need your clothes dried quicker you can do that too!
Wearable health trackers are here to stay.
I’m thrilled about this one. I didn’t have time to see all the offerings in this department because it has grown so much. Pete and I are going to be getting new ones and I’m still trying to decide which one to get. I thought this would help me narrow down which one… but instead I just came home with more options I wanted to research. I’ll definately be sharing more about that soon. What I do know is that this technology is going to change self care forever. We are learning more and more everyday how important sleep is and I’m excited to see the advances in sleep tracking and practical ways we can use this info for better health.
It’s okay to be pretty and functional, especially when you are a household item.
Word is out that women do the majority of the decision making and shopping for home goods. It’s also known that we like things that make our home look better. We also want things to be functional. Making them pretty and functional is the way of the future. Even better is the option to change the look without having to buy a whole new unit. Much like how we change our phone cases. It will be interesting to see if this actually comes to fruition with the washer and dryer or not. Either way I see much more focus on aesthetics being an important design feature.
Next year I will definitely try to schedule more than a day for CES. I don’t think even a week would be enough time to see all of it… but another 24 hours would be a nice start!
What tech trends are you most excited about?
I think all of these are so beautiful. Is it weird that I think washers are beautiful? I want a new but don’t want to have to buy one in a state of panic, if you know what I mean.
I think they are awesome, too! My mother-in-law has an awesome set and every time I go over there I dream about owning some. I think I want a red set, as much as I like the stainless steal look, I’m saving that for my kitchen.
How cool. There seems to be really great products. Thank you so much for sharing the latest and the greatest technologies.
I am most excited about the wearable health tracker trend. This is something that I definitely want to get on board with!
Any help with laundry excited me. So much to be wowed with at this show!
The wearable health trackers sound fabulous, I have wanted a fitbit for some time now. Thats exciting that they’ll be sticking around!
Wow that must be an amazing show, I think I would spend hours looking t everything I love technology, exciting to see what is coming! x
What an amazing trip. I am also going to be watching the Whirlpool HybridCare™ Heat Pump Dryer! That looks awesome!
That 3d printer is amazing! I really love where technology is taking us.
These new appliances look amazing! I could go for a new washer/dryer set right now. Thanks for sharing the info from this event 😀
I SO need this twin washing machine – we are a big family and boy would this help – what a super cool idea!
That twin wash washing machine is way too cool. What an innovation!
Look at all of that tech! I LOVE being able to change the look of the washer and dryer.
The 3D Idea Maker is SO COOL! Technology is really getting crazy cool. I love it!
I would love to attend one year. Me in a candy store!
How did you end up going out there? Was it a press pass you received? I only heard about it around a month before it started, but by that time we had already booked our tickets from California to Canada to fly home to visit family. I missed out on it.
The clear decals (polkadot one that is less “fake” looking than the other) on the washer/dryer is super cute!
Yes with a press badge. I would definitely try to go next year if you can. It was pretty awesome!
I really love the 3d printer frog! That sort of technology really amazes me by far!
Okay, that washing machine sounds dreamy. I hate doing so many loads because of separating. This would be such a time saver. Sounds like a great time, thanks for sharing…
Looks very interesting. I would love to attend an event like this.
I’m jealous. I follow CES and the upcoming mobile world conference, along with all the other gadget shows religiously. Someday I will make the trip in person.
I am definitely excited about those washing machines. And that idea thing is amazing! People are so smart and creative!
It’s official, I want that washer and dryer set! What cool products!
I love the look of LG washers/dryers. I need a new one soon myself 😛
I’ll take one of each, please! I definitely want to get to CES next year. So many great products.
I am in the market for a new health tracker. I look forward to seeing which ones you select and to read all about them.
seems like they have tons of great products right there – i wish we have those here as well.. great for family products/
Whoa! It recycles heat?! That’s awesome, what a show this must have been. I love hearing about all the latest in tech!
Sleep really is important. I’d be interested in tracking mine, to see if I get enough of it. And I like the pretty face on the washer/dryer set. 🙂
Looks like a fun event. I am not sure who made the rule that washer and dryers had to be solid colors and boring. 🙂 I love scrolling through the DIY on Pinterest where folks have painted their appliances all fun and funky.
I was just seeing some new tech products on the Today show this morning. Just saying right now, that my jaw dropped at the thought of being able to wash 2 loads of clothes at the same time!!!! My husband welds so his clothes are FILTHY and can’t be washed with other clothes so we always have to do a load of his clothes alone. I NEED one of those washers!
The twin washers sound really cool. I don’t get that far behind on laundry, but for when I have a few loads to do it would save time.
I could use a new dryer too even though it’s not quite in my budget yet. I’m glad to see and hear about the new trends and will keep that in mind for when I’m ready. 🙂
That twin washing machine is pretty much the coolest thing ever! I am the worst when it comes to new technology.
I’m most excited about the Twin Wash Washing Machine. This is much needed in my household!
The fact that we can print in 3D is just mind blowing to me. I still remember when the internet was a new idea
The washing machine would be a dream for me. I love the way you can personalize the look of them. I like the 3D printer as well.
I find the 3D printers the coolest technology. It is exciting to think of all the people that can benefit from 3D printed heart valves and other things.
those washer dryer covers are amazing. what a way to quickly change up the look of a room!
I like the pretty washers! That’s really unique. The LG washer sounds interesting two. That’d be interesting to see how that works.
