LAS VEGAS — Thousands of companies will roll out millions of products at CES this week. Lights will blink. Glass will shimmer. Screens will illuminate and speakers will reverberate. All the focus on hardware will make it easy to lose sight of what really matters, which is the software that runs on it. As that becomes ever more true, it raises the question of what role the Consumer Electronics Show will play in coming years.

Software is the thing. The physical shell that it comes wrapped in is increasingly meaningless as upgrade cycles grow relentlessly shorter and relentlessly more cross-platform. We care about apps and experience and integration — all of which can be hard or impossible to get a sense of at CES, where you may get all of 10 seconds with a gadget that has not yet come to market.

Sure, hardware is very important. Faster processors. More and better sensors. Radios with better transmission capabilities, running on more frequencies. Pixel density. Delightful chamfers. These things matter. A lot. But the bottom line is software — or it should be. While atoms may indeed be the new bits in terms of production, bits remain king when it comes to consumption.

Don’t believe me? Look back a year to CES 2012. Everyone was talking about the Nokia Lumia 900. It was more than the flagship Nokia phone; it was the flagship Windows Phone, a bundle of impressive specs in a gorgeous body. The 900 was a hardware triumph but for one thing: It ran Windows Phone 7.5. It was obsolete just five month later when Microsoft announced Windows Phone 8. The 900 couldn’t be upgraded, and it wouldn’t run apps developed for the new platform. Two months after hitting the market, the Lumia 900 was effectively dead. That was due entirely to software.

And then there was CES 2011. The big fuss was over BlackBerry’s tablet, the Playbook. It looked great on paper, and in demos. The Playbook had a 1024 x 600 display, 5MP rear camera, 3MP front-facing camera, and dual-core 1GHz processor — specs that aren’t shabby even today. It was a hit, and it appeared on some “best of CES” lists. But when it arrived in April, bereft of a native e-mail client and with few apps people would want to use, it was a flop, an utter failure. The Playbook came to symbolize everything that’s wrong with BlackBerry, and in some respects it can be seen as everything that is wrong with CES’ focus on hardware.

The fact is, hardware doesn’t really matter. We buy phones because they have the apps we want. We buy TVs (or don’t) not only for picture quality, but because they are easy to use. We look for the gadgets that are compatible with our existing laptops, and will export data to the applications we already use. We live in a software-driven world. Hardware is merely the foundation that it is built upon.

This is a problem for CES, which has never really been a show about software. As software matters more and more, CES matters less and less. The internet is already the world’s largest trade show. Gadget blogs are the new conventions. The hottest products are all in app stores, or on Kickstarter. Sure, big electronics shows offer the opportunity to meet people and forge relationships. But even that transaction is being moved online in the era of real-time social media.

CES remains a temple to cool hardware. There will be robots. All kinds of robots! There will be waterproof everything and wearable electronics with questionable degrees of comfort that must be seen to be believed. For buyers and journalists and industry analysts, seeing this stuff in person, getting hands-on with them and talking to the people who developed them is invaluable. For manufacturers — certainly small ones — CES is where a new product is exposed to a lot of very influential people. It’s a place where a single order from a retailer with widespread distribution can make a small business into a large one.

But overall, times have changed. The anchor exhibitor at CES was long Microsoft. And while, yes, Microsoft makes hardware, it is fundamentally a software company — its very name alludes to software. And now it is gone; no longer exhibiting on the show floor. Its CEO will no longer give the keynote address. The divorce is complete, even if the parties remain amicable.

CES isn’t going away. At least, not anytime soon. But it also isn’t going to matter as much this year as it did last year, a year which itself mattered less than the previous one, and so on, and so on.

If you want to see what will be a long-term hit that emerges from CES, look at the software support. Look for the products that are marvels of simplicity, whose software not only strips away layers of complexity in our lives, but is built with the future in mind — built to upgrade. Look for the products that can support all sorts of systems. Look for the products that don’t try to beguile you with speeds, or specs, or some sort of fancy new surface material. Look at the software.

International CES - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia International CES From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation, search Consumer Electronics Show Status Active Genre Consumer electronics Venue Las Vegas Convention Center Location Winchester, Nevada Country USA First held 1967 Organizer Consumer Electronics Association Attendance 140,000 Official website cesweb.org

The International CES (or simply CES, acronym of Consumer Electronics Show) is a major technology-related trade show held each January in the Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. Not open to the public, the Consumer Electronics Association-sponsored show typically hosts previews of products and new product announcements. CES rose to prominence after COMDEX was canceled.

The first CES was held in June 1967 in New York City. It was a spinoff from the Chicago Music Show, which until then had served as the main event for exhibiting consumer electronics. The event had 17,500 attendees and over 100 exhibitors; the kickoff speaker was Motorola chairman Bob Galvin.[1] From 1978 to 1994, CES was held twice each year: once in January in Las Vegas known as Winter Consumer Electronics Show (WCES) and once in June in Chicago, known as Summer Consumer Electronics Show (SCES).

The winter show was successfully held in Las Vegas in 1995 as planned. However, since the summer Chicago shows were beginning to lose popularity, the organizers decided to experiment by having the show travel around to different cities starting in 1995 with a planned show in Philadelphia at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. However, the inaugural E3 gaming show was scheduled to be held on the West Coast that same weekend and many exhibitors protested, causing the Philly Summer CES show to be cancelled. The 1996 Winter show was again held in Las Vegas in January, followed by a Summer show this time in Orlando, Florida, however only a fraction of the traditional exhibitors participated. Again, the 1997 Winter show in Las Vegas was very successful. The next "Summer" show was scheduled to be held in conjunction with Spring COMDEX in Atlanta, however when only two dozen-or-so exhibitors signed on, the CES portion of the show was cancelled.

In 1998, the show changed to a once-a-year format with Las Vegas as the location. In Las Vegas, the show is one of the largest (the other being CONEXPO-CON/AGG), taking up to 18 days to set up, run and break down.[2]

[edit] 2005

The 2005 exhibition was from January 6 to January 9, 2005, in Las Vegas. The event started off with a twist when the main keynote address by Microsoft chairman Bill Gates went wrong, as his demonstration of Windows Media Center resulted in a Blue Screen of Death,[5] much to the amusement of the onlookers.

Samsung showed off a 102-inch (2.6 m) plasma television.[6]

Zimiti Ltd (renamed Boardbug Ltd in 2007) won the "Best of Innovators"[7] award for Personal Electronics. It is the only British company to have won this award.

[edit] 2006

The 2006 International CES took place on January 5, to January 8, 2006, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, the Sands Convention Center, the Alexis Park Hotel and the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel. HDTV was a central theme in the Bill Gates keynote[8] as well as many of the other manufacturer's speeches. The standards competition between HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc was conspicuous, with some of the first HD movie releases[9] and first HD players being announced at the show. Philips showed a rollable display prototype whose screen can retain an image for several months without electricity. Hillcrest Labs won the "Best Of Innovations" award in the video accessories category for software and hardware that allows a television to be controlled with natural gestures.[10][11] Attendance was over 150,000 individuals in 1.67 million net square feet of space, making it the largest electronics event in the United States.

[edit] 2007

In a break from recent tradition, the 2007 CES event did not begin on a Thursday, nor span a weekend. It ran from Monday January 8 to Thursday January 11, 2007. The venues also changed slightly, with the high-performance audio and home theater expo moving from the Alexis Park venue to The Venetian. The remaining venues were the same as previous years: the Las Vegas Convention Center was the center of events, with the adjacent Las Vegas Hilton, and the Sands Expo and Convention Center hosting satellite exhibitions.

The location for the main keynotes was the other major change for 2007. Previously held at the Las Vegas Hilton's Main Theater, they staged for the first time at The Palazzo Ballroom in The Venetian. Bill Gates gave his ninth pre-show keynote address on the Sunday evening. The opening keynote was presented by Gary Shapiro (President/CEO of the Consumer Electronics Association, which hosts the event), with Ed Zander, Chairman/CEO of Motorola. Other keynote speakers scheduled included Robert Iger from The Walt Disney Company, Michael Dell, founder of Dell Inc., and Leslie Moonves of CBS.

Finally, Industry Insider presentations moved to the Las Vegas Hilton, with contributions from Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo, CEO of Nokia and John Chambers, CEO of Cisco.

In the gaming section for Windows Vista and DirectX 10, there were two games shown: Age of Conan and Crysis.

[edit] 2008

The 2008 exhibition was from January 7 through January 10, 2008 in Las Vegas with 141,150 attendees. Bill Gates gave the keynote speech, in which he formally announced his retirement from his day-to-day duties at Microsoft. Along with the announcement, he presented a lengthy comedy skit on what his last day with Microsoft would be like, complete with cameos from celebrities including Jay-Z, Steven Spielberg, Barack Obama, Hillary Rodham Clinton and many others. Industry names such as Consumer Priority Service also made an appearance among others in the retail sector.[12]

Panasonic attracted much attention by releasing a 150" Plasma TV, as well as a 50" TV as thin as 0.46 in. (11.6 mm).[13]

[edit] 2009

The 2009 exhibition, held January 7–10, returned to the previous Thursday–Sunday schedule, and attracted 113,085 attendees. Among more than 2,700 exhibiting companies were approximately 300 first-time exhibitors.

Several highlights include organic light-emitting diode (OLED) televisions,[14] the Palm Pre,[15][16] pico projectors,[17] the Marvell SheevaPlug plug computer,[18] and 3D projectors.[19]

The Minoru 3D Webcam, a USB webcam that is billed as the world's first stereoscopic 3D consumer stereo webcam won the "Fans Favorite" award.[20] Dell introduced its Dell Adamo subnotebook.[21]

The game show Jeopardy! filmed one episode from the celebrity series and the 2009 Tournament of Champions on a new set at the Sony booth. The set was moved to their main studio at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, California starting with the 26th season.

CES 2009 suffered 22 percent or more attendance drop, which was attributed to the global financial crisis.[22]

[edit] 2010 Attendees walking by the LG Electronics display at CES 2010

The 2010 exhibition was held January 7–10 and attracted more than 120,000 attendees.[23]

Highlights include the Intel Infoscape, which is run on the Intel Core i7 processor. One computer ran two 7-foot (2.1 m) screens, displaying 576 cubes hooked up to 20,000 info sources, including 20 live video feeds. Visitors would touch one of the cubes, and an infobox displaying that content would come forward. One journalist explained, "The graphics on the giant screens were a tons of fun to move around with their uncanny quickness and smooth motion, and the whole thing felt super responsive, Giving us a peek into the future, it seemed a lot like that computer screen in the movie Minority Report. It was the most spectacular demo we saw at CES 2010."[24][25] Equally impressive, Parrot presented the 1st prototype of Parrot AR.Drone, a remote-controlled flying toy which streams video via wi-fi to an iPhone.

Sustainable Planet grew by 40% in 2010.[26]

[edit] 2011

The 2011 exhibition was held from Thursday, January 6 to Sunday, January 9.[27] CESWEB is reporting that their pre-audit numbers show an attendance of 128,949.

Many tablets were introduced in 2011's show, such as the Motorola Xoom tablet, winning Best of Show,[28] which runs Android Honeycomb. Many 4G phones were also unveiled at the show, including the LG Revolution, Samsung Infuse 4G, HTC Thunderbolt, Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc, Motorola CLIQ 2, Motorola Droid Bionic, and Motorola Atrix 4G.

3D TVs were introduced by many giants, such as Mitsubishi's 92-inch model of its 2011 line up theater-sized 3D Home Cinema TVs.[29] Toshiba also unveiled its Glasses Free 4K 3D TV prototype.[30] Samsung announced the Plasma 3D HD TV series named D8000[31] and LG introduced the LED 3D TV of its Infinia Nano series.[32]

3net, a 3DTV channel co-owned by Discovery Communications, Sony, and IMAX, was previewed.[33]

Microsoft demonstrated Windows running on an ARM processor.[34]

[edit] 2012

The 2012 exhibition was held from Tuesday, January 8th to Sunday, January 13th. Microsoft released an official statement saying that CES 2012 will be Microsoft’s last appearance at the event.[35][36] The show organizers claimed that 153,000 people attended the 2012 show, a 2% increase from the previous year and a new all time attendance record.[37] Intel was caught falsifying a demo of their new Ivy Bridge processors.[38] AMD demonstrated their new Trinity APUs.[39]

AMTC was demonstrating this ‘Tier-2’ CE products (‘middleware’) featuring the Inview Technology platform. Inview claimed that its low processing and memory footprint means connected TV capabilities are available at low-cost, as the software is provided royalty free. Parrot presented the "world's most advanced headphones" the Parrot ZIK By Starck[40]

[edit] 2013

The 2013 International CES was held from Tuesday, January 8th to Friday, January 11th, 2013 in the Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nevada, United States.[41] Over 3,000 exhibitors showcased a wide range of innovative products this year.

STORY HIGHLIGHTS Tech companies and gadget startups show new products at the Consumer Electronics Show There was a glut of home and health sensors, but a few products stood out A "smart fork" tracks how fast you eat to help you lose weight A GPS-based device will track your lost luggage

Editor's note: Follow @cnntech and @kelly_heather on Twitter and CNNTech on Instagram for updates from the Consumer Electronics Show.

Las Vegas (CNN) -- Judging by a preview event at this year's Consumer Electronics Show, one big gadget trend this year will be sensors that track almost everything in your daily life.

There are sensors to track your home, your security systems, your pets, your plants, your weight and, in the case of a new "smart fork," even how fast you eat.

CES, the world's biggest electronics trade show, officially opens its doors Tuesday and runs through Friday. But at Sunday's preview event here, select companies offered the first real peek at what kinds of products we're likely to see the most over the week.

Here are five of the more fun gadgets we spotted.

'Smart' fork tracks how fast you eat Expo 'reflects and leads tech trends'

The smart fork that slows you down

The HAPIfork from HAPILABS is smarter than your typical eating utensil. In addition to the standard stabbing of meat and ferrying of food from the plate to your mouth, this fork tracks how many bites you take, how fast you take them and the length of your meal.

If you are eating too fast, the fork will let you know with a vibration and a blinking light, eventually training you to take your time. Eating more slowly can help people lose weight (there's more time to feel full), and also help them digest food better.

French engineer Jacques Lepine invented the connected eating implement after his family chided him for eating too quickly. He spent three years searching for the right sensor, eventually settling on one that completes a circuit every time your mouth closes over the end of the fork.

Naturally, the HAPIfork comes with a mobile app and webpage for tracking your noshing habits. A HAPIspoon is also in development. The fork will cost $99 when it becomes available in April, and the founders are planning a Kickstarter campaign for February.

Trends to look for at CES

A hub for your connected home

There are seemingly no limits to the things in your home, such as temperature and lights, you can track and control remotely with sensors. But there are not many good ways to coordinate all of that data, short of having an app for each and every device.

The Iris system from Lowe's acts as a hub for a connected home. With the one mobile app you can control and check all your household sensors, or you can program Iris to send you text-message alerts when, say, your back door is open.

In addition to thermostat and security sensors, Iris will help you monitor carbon monoxide levels, water heaters, pet doors and the moisture levels of your house plants. Lowe's promises more sensors to come from such third parties as Verizon, Whirlpool and PetSafe.

If you doubt the need for a connected home, check out the Iris Care service. It lets you monitor an elderly family member's home and sends you a text message if anything unusual is detected. There's also an emergency alert button your relative can wear around his or her neck.

Toyota reveals self-driving car

Track your lost luggage anywhere

Trakdot is like Find My iPhone for your luggage. The small black and orange box is preprogrammed with your phone numbers and dropped into a piece of checked luggage. If you arrive at an airport but your duffel doesn't, you can check its location online with the Trakdot app, or get its location sent to you via text message or e-mail.

The device transmits the location using a SIM card, so a few special features had to be worked in to make it FAA compliant. The Trakdot automatically goes into sleep mode when it hits 100 knots and wakes up when the plane is at the destination gate.

The Trakdot costs $50, plus an annual $13 service fee and a one-time $9 setup fee. If you're a frequent flier who has been wronged by incompetent airlines, you may find it a good investment to let you know if your bag is in Frankfurt when it's supposed to be in Rome.

iPhone case is all touch

Sure, the front of your iPhone is touch sensitive, but all that other surface area is just boring old metal, right? Not anymore. The Sensus case from Canopy adds touch features to the sides and back of your iPhone, turning it into one big touchtastic device.

When used with compatible apps, the case adds some interesting navigation and scrolling options. It shines most with games, allowing more interactive play without your big fingers blocking the touchscreen. The device will need more dedicated apps to be truly useful, but Canopy has released a few of its own apps to show off its features and potential.

There's a glut of iPhone cases out there, so it's nice to see a new entry that adds to the smartphone experience instead of just dressing up the phone. The case starts at $59, and the company says it is working on iPad versions.

The history of CES celebrity gadgets

Smart glasses, but not Google's

The Vuzix M100 smart glasses bring the power and features of a smartphone directly to your eyeballs. The company has been working on a prototype of these specs for a year and is now showing off a working model at CES. Vuzix says it's close to what the final version will be.

The glasses run Android 4.0 and can be used to make calls, watch videos and navigate a computer interface. The device has all the fixings, including GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and 720p video recording. Vuzix hopes to have the glasses available by this summer for Android and iOS.
