Hundreds of New Product announcements from CES 2009
Every year for the last 20 years, I have been making the trek up to Las Vegas for the annual Consumer Electronics Show. Over the years, the show has evolved from a giant bazaar selling toys, watches and other household gizmos to the most important United States show for electronics, cameras, computers, gaming, audio accessories, etc. This year is no different. So far I have not seen any revolutionary announcements but several trends are definitely emerging.
We don't agree that this year's CES attendance was an indicator of an industry decline. The lower numbers were good for a lot of reasons. Unfortunately when the economic tide turns the hordes will probably be back. 3D movies/TV, mininotebooks and the constant din that we need our entertainment everywhere were the major news points for the show. Beyond that there were incremental enhancements/improvements. Paradigm shifts were not to be seen. But as CEA's Shapiro said it may be tough for a few quarters but the industry is going to innovate itself out of the global economic downturn. Flying to the seat of national government for handouts is not in the companies' DNA. Surviving and thriving in the PC/CE/content industry isn't always easy, sometimes not much fun but it is always interesting. This is one of those really, really interesting periods.

One feature of the show was "Demo Alley". This is a series of rooms with product demonstrations ranging anywhere from remotes to full home theatres. The demo that stood out to me was put on by a group of manufacturers to demonstrate a complete home theater system.

I was a bit worried that I would find an economically battered battle field full of horror stories and spilled blood. I was pleasantly surprised to find lots of optomism, some great success stories and the same old entepeneurial spirit that keeps me enthralled with this industry. Yes, there were a few sad faces and sad stories ... but not nearly as many as I had expected. In fact the general consensus for me was ... business as usual ... in many respects.

Renewable energy will be a significant component of our future energy picture -- distributed generation from PVs to wind turbines and storage systems for electricity and cooling. These systems will increasingly be installed in our homes, together with smart electricity meters. While these can provide useful functions on their own, their true potential will only be realized when all of these devices are connected with each other along with other devices and appliances such as white goods and lifestyle, security and entertainment systems
