The Best of CES 2020 for Small Biz includes an Owl, a Tiny Projector, and a Talkative Desk

It’s complete. CES 2020 came and went in a flurry last week. What unique office products impressed?

The Meeting Owl Pro is a smart speaker, 360-degree camera, and microphone that turns any table into a business meeting place. Plugs into a computer via USB, and it works with most video conferencing platforms.

The Acer 250i projector, a portable LED wireless projector, shares presentations stored on your smartphone. This gem broadcasts on any surface without a stand. No waiting for it to warm up, it’s ready to go now.

It’s come to this. Your desk will soon tell you what to do. When you’ve been sitting too long, it reminds you to stand and vice versa. Fitterlab’s Fitterdesk is an ergonomically designed smart working desk. An app on your phone controls it, no buttons to find and push.

Are you tired of trying to find room for your lunch in the not so clean break room fridge and prefer a hot meal? Heatbox keeps your lunch fresh and heats it to the perfect temperature when you’re ready. It’s rechargeable and lightweight, operated via a smartphone app.

Do you long for the clack of keys as you type? Or hate the feel of your silent keyboard? Cherry MX’s new switch technology may have you clattering away soon on your new reasonably priced mechanical keyboard.

Is your small business experiencing Wi-Fi issues and little budget for IT? D-Link introduced Nuclias Connect, a network management solution specifically for small businesses. A way to automate your network management.
