The Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas has kicked off.
The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed EWN Tech Reporter Aki Anastasiou.
Anastasiou discussed the five biggest tech trends from this year’s show:
Drones are everywhere! From the enthusiast to the professionals - these flying machines are going to be around our lives doing all kinds of things.
2. Health devices
Last year "health" at CES was massive and this year it has grown even bigger.
Devices have become more intelligent and share more valuable information about our health.
There was even a device that claims to help women with morning sickness and those who suffer from motion sickness.
3. Smart homes
Smart homes are the next big thing for consumers - from connected ceiling fans to locks that open your home with a smartphone.
There is even a showerhead that tells you how much water you’ve used.
All the top motoring manufacturers are here giving us a glimpse into the future of the car.
Driverless systems and connected cars are massive, but assisted driving is where the immediate future lies.
Manufacturers are launching technologies to assist drivers with safety as well as to semi-automate driving.
5. Virtual reality
Virtual reality is slowly creeping into our lives and this year at CES it has gone mainstream with various iterations on how it could work in the future.
