The quest to make a meatless burger which tastes like real hamburger continues. According to Engadget, Impossible Foods Impossible Burger 2.0 closely replicates the real thing. They named it “The Best of the Best” for CES 2019.
The best tech at the show was edible. You will likely see it at your local grocer later this year. Other hot topics at CES 2019 included AI( artificial intelligence), and 5G.
5G appeared but not really in a substantial way. AT&T, with the only working commercial 5G network in a few cities, didn’t even show off a 5G phone. No one displayed an actual working 5G phone. The super speedy 5G devices and networks may not arrive till 2020 in significant quantity.
AI proved noteworthy at the show. 3D tracking for athletes developed by Intel and Alibaba and ready for the Olympics next year in Tokyo. An Oral-B toothbrush which tells you the places in your mouth you missed, among other things.
Voice identity offerings featured lots of useful innovations, especially for business. Pindrop showed off a voice identity platform for voice assistants, smart homes, offices, and connected cars. No more pin codes to forget and lock you out of your office, account or device; your voice unlocks everything.
There is a smart mirror named Artemis for your bathroom. It adjusts your shower settings, lets you know how to fix your bad hair day, and checks your vision. I don’t suggest you ask it “who the fairest in the land is.”
