The International CES is a global consumer electronics and consumer technology tradeshow which takes place every January in Las Vegas, Nevada. Its a fitting way to start the new year with amazing new technologies, innovations and cool gadgets. Many of which are based on the Linux kernel or makes use of Linux remotely.
This year, CES officially launches on the 7th of January. Yesterday, I attended CES Unveiled, where the Press come to catch the latest products in one room and get a 2 day early preshow look at what will be making headlines during CES. This was my third time to this event in five years, but the very first time where I will be specifically seeking out technologies and gadgets making use of Linux.
My favorites thus far:
- Linksys 1900AC – This Dual-Band Router is capable of speeds of over 1Gbps on the 5 GHz band and up to 600 Mpbs on the 2.4 GHz band. Its based on Open Source Linux.
- Lenovo’s Horizon 2 – The 27” multimode Horizon 2 operates in two different modes – as a traditional desktop and as a Table PC. Android Based (Linux kernel).
- Lenovo’s Beacon media hub – Runs a custom Linux OS and starts at a crazy low price of $199!
