Last week over 170,000 technologists, brand strategists, product developers and investors converged on Las Vegas for the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Some of the major trends at this year’s show included foldable screens (both in your pocket and across an entire event space), smart home technology (from toilet paper robots to connected toothbrushes) and the future of the car experience (from safety to entertainment to flying taxis).
While all these new products and features are flashy and exciting, the true magic of CES lies in the thousands of startups exhibiting on the floor at Eureka Park. Many of these startups are hyper-focused on solving a specific business or consumer problem and are at the cutting edge of breakthrough technology. We’ve curated the most interesting, relevant and potentially scalable 5 startups from CES 2020.
Phiar – Phiar’s mission is to change the way consumers perceive and navigate the world, forever. Their state-of-the-art deep learning and cognitive science expertise combines artificial intelligence and augmented reality for clear, safe and precise navigation. Although not yet in beta phase, this is certainly a company worth keeping an eye on as the consumer applications and corporate integrations are endless.
The next two startups aim to attack the epidemic of stress and anxiety with their unique technologies…
