Special Report: CESAsia 2015
The latest on consumer electronics from Shanghai with twice daily updates from our CES ninja, Stephen Cass
From May 26 to 28, we’ll be bringing you coverage of CES Asia, direct from the show floor in Shanghai. This is the first year of CES Asia, a spin off of CES International—the monster January conference and exhibition in Las Vegas. With 250 exhibitors that will include some of the biggest names in China and beyond, we’ll have the latest news in technologies such as mobile, Internet of Things, wearable, video and display, robotics, and more.
Because of the 12-hour time difference between IEEE Spectrum’s New York City offices and Shanghai, rather than live blogging, we’ll have twice daily dispatches covering key events and must-sees from the previous day.
One last look at the wares that were being hawked at the expo.
The government is supporting maker spaces in a bid to boost industrial innovation.
The future may be driven by the appetite of China’s smaller cities for better goods and services.
A quick sampling of the interesting—and quirky—gadgets on offer at the expo.
We need better energy storage—or a way to avoid having to use it.
Hits from the show floor.
Years from now, when historians of technology are recalling the first day of the first-ever CESAsia, here’s what will be remembered.
This week—perhaps as something of a pre-emptive strike against any would-be attempts to knock it from its perch as the preeminent electronics conference and expo—the Consumer Electronics Association, which owns CES, launched a spinoff show in Shanghai. The attraction of locating CESAsia in China is obvious. Not only is China where most consumer electronics are manufactured, it’s also where these devices are finding a growing retail market.
