Day two of CES is well under way but first we wanted to provide a quick recap of a few things we found while exploring the show floor during the first show days of CES. (See our previous post on pre-CES news.)
Power consumption, energy and eco-friendly products are gaining steam at this year’s show. For example, xi3 creates computers that only need 20 watts of electricity to operate vs. the standard 100-400 watts for most personal computers. The xi3 also announced new software that lets two users work off a single computer.
NRG Energy’s booth featured sustainable energy solutions for the home (including an installation of bicycles that could be pedaled to generate money for charity and also produce enough energy to power several lightbulbs for every minute spend pedaling) and an electric-powered DeLorean capable of 125 miles per hour – a different spin on Back to the Future
Several other exhibitors showed energy-efficient devices such as solar-powered chargers and netbooks, as well as USB power sockets.
What will day two bring? We’re already seeing many new trends and gadgets. Stay tuned and follow our updates at @airfoilpr.
