Years from now, when historians of technology are recalling the first day of the first-ever CESAsia, here’s what will be remembered:
While it looks a little bulky, this spoon from Gyenno Technologies has a set of sensors and actuators in the handle that allow it to cancel out much of the motion caused by hand tremors in people suffering from conditions such as Parkinson’s disease. The spoon is charged via a wireless charger that also doubles as a carrying case; it will get about 180 minutes of use per charge. Mass production will start in July and the price will be about US $290.
Spider Dress 2.0
The first pick isn’t technically from the show floor, but from Intel’s keynote address. A model demonstrated this dress created by “fashiontech” designer Anouk Wipprecht. Using computational power provided by Intel’s Edison microcomputer for projects such as wearables, the dress can sense if someone is standing too close to the wearer. If someone is too close, warning lights illuminate, and tentacles that resemble spider legs extend to ward off the intruder.
