CES is the most influential tech event in the world that happens once a year. This is where the world’s biggest brands do business, and pioneers showcase new innovation. For the first time, CES went completely digital for 2021 due to the ongoing pandemic. Let us find out the best products presented at CES 2021.
Best Gaming Product from CES 2021 – AMD Ryzen™ 5000 Series Mobile Processors
AMD announced their AMD Ryzen™ 5000 Series Mobile Processors during CES 2021. Though this ‘mobile’ version is designed and made for laptops in mind, it has the same capabilities as its desktop counterpart. It delivers immersive experiences in the newest and upcoming titles, and it obliterates any heavy multi-threaded tasks. This processor will be perfect for gamers and artists on the go.
With up to 16 cores, 32 threads, 72MB of cache, and boost clocks of up to 4.9GHz, the future of gaming with AMD is fast. They have lifted the bar for the future of gaming. Now, other companies like Intel and NVIDIA will have to step up their game if they want to outperform this processor.
Best Laptop from CES 2021 – ASUS ZenBook Duo 14
The ZenBook Duo 14 is the laptop of tomorrow. It will get things done in style; calmly, efficiently, and with zero fuss. It is an elegant but powerful laptop for on-the-go consumers. It features the ScreenPad™ Plus secondary display with the newly added tilting functionality that offers seamless workflows and effortless ergonomics. In addition, with its new software update, multitasking between the two screens have been made simpler.
The laptop is powered by Intel‘s new 11th Generation processor, making it pretty fast. It can also be configured with NVIDIA MX 450 graphics, making it very appealing to all those artists out there.
Best Mobile Device from CES 2021 – LG Rollable Smartphone
Rather than advancing towards foldable smartphones, LG went another direction; rollable smartphones. Little is known about this smartphone, but rumours suggest that LG will launch its rollable smartphone sometime this year.
The concept of a rollable screen is similar to a foldable one; to make the screen bigger when needed. Inside the phone is a rolled-up OLED screen that can be unfurled, making the screen bigger. This allows the smartphone to keep the size and shape of a traditional smartphone rather than a tablet.
Best TV from CES 2021 – LG C1 OLED TV
OLED is a great display technology that offers quality images with the best contrast and view angles on the market right now. But there is a disadvantage to it, it is not suited in well-lit rooms due to its low brightness. This year, however, LG has made improvements and announced its C1 OLED TV that will deliver higher brightness levels.
LG C1 also features an incredibly thin "Gallery" design that allows it to be mounted to a wall. This TV has been equipped with a new image processor, the Alpha 9 Gen 4, that will analyse and optimise the display as it is being used. It is also fully equipped with HDMI 2.1 and surround sound built-in speakers. This TV will hit the stores soon, so be ready for it.
Best Wearable – Fossil Skagen Jorn Hybrid HR Smartwatch
Fossil unveiled their new hybrid smartwatch; Skagen Jorn Hybrid HR, at CES 2021. This smartwatch places technology first and foremost with its E-ink display showing notifications, weather, activity data, and other tools like timers. The E-ink display blends are used to blend in the smart technology with the analogue time-telling part of the watch.
It features a two-week battery life and fast charging, able to charge to 80% in just 50 minutes. It offers many wellness features; such as heart rate monitoring, step counting, and sleep tracking. It also has several workout modes that can automatically detect motion. With its sleek design and many functionalities, it is perfect for both formal events and everyday life.
Best For Relaxation – Kohler Stillness Bath
The Stillness Bath from Kohler was the most unexpected product presented at CES 2021. It was surprising to see a bathtub with a mood button at an event known for innovations in technology. Inspired by Japanese forest bathing, the bath fills from the bottom and gently spills out into a special hinoki wood moat.
Despite being nature-inspired, there is plenty of tech here. The bath is voice-activated, and it will ask for the desired depth and temperature. Its soft “full-spectrum” LED lighting system that illuminates from below can create any mood needed. A fog generator will release fine fog and soothing aromas from essential oils.
