CES2017 Day 3

Crowded tech displays at the Consumer Electronics Show
Today at CES I explored 3 big areas of the show. The mood was calm at the Tech South, Aria Hotel displays. The Spotify team had an interactive booth demonstrating how music and emotion connect. There were a handful of cool ad placement firms with different approaches toward targeting and tracking digital brand placements. The company LogoGrab has technology similar to Facebook's face recognition software to track when brand's logos appear in social photos and video.

The first floor of the Sands Expo (pictured above) was fully saturated with crowds. This area housed hundreds of start-up brands. I met an innovative company named InMotion Albums who are creating a digital photo album, which also holds printed photography.

The second floor of the Sands had many robotics and fitness related wearables. I was impressed by the Martian Smartwatch. They retain the traditional analog styling of a classy watch, have text notifications and voice control functionality.

It was another inspiring day of talking shop with talented and ambitious tech industry professionals. Very much worth the trip out the Las Vegas this year.
