CES 2019

AR ruled.
Despite the sad goodbye of some AR innovators at the end of 2018, there’s not a slowdown there is in fact one more SLAM HMD (glasses that understand the physical space around you).
SLAM (simultaneous localization and mapping) is in many devices. Robots, vacuum cleaners, drones, cars, glasses. Computer vision is so good that SLAM can run from an RGB camera over a mobile web browser (see 8thwall).

Two products that my work touched launched at CES this year.

  1. The Apprentice platform - for telepresence and remote collaboration.

  2. Lovot - a heart-warming robot from Japan.

    (That doesn’t mean the next step is to control a SLAM robot via your glasses).
