Wheels up tomorrow for CES 2015! Connection is the watchword…

I’m excited. Tomorrow we head to CES 2015. A lot of the “what to expect” reports are talking about the ultra-HD (i.e. 4k) TVs, the high-res smartphones and phablets,  and the drones.

Oh, and the 3D printing space is going to be massive – but really, they need to start printing things besides Hobbits and keychain tchotchkes. And of course, Oculus Rift is promising to show us something even cooler in augmented reality. (Check out my “shocked in the rift” from last year…)

Even so, I think the real news for this year’s show is on the bigger focus underlying the show – it’s all about connecting consumers through their wearables, cars, appliances, and other devices to the Internet ecosystem. The digital is becoming real!

It’s also exciting how large the Eureka Park tech zone is going to be this year – 375 startups this year from all over the world compared to 220 last year – with many focused on Internet of Things ideas.

I can’t wait to see what’s in store.

Vegas, baby!
