LAS VEGAS, NV – CES 2017 is the home of innovation, and before the doors open to the public, I got an exclusive sneak peek at some of the newest tech you’ll see this year.
DJI Osmo Mobile Gimbal
Ever wanted to take a photo with your phone but can’t steady the picture enough for it to look presentable? That changes thanks to the revised version of DJI’s Osmo Mobile gimbal. The Osmo Mobile turns a smartphone into a smart motion camera, giving users a perfect tool to effortlessly create cinematic videos. The new Osmo Mobile Silver was created with lifestyle in mind and shares the same high-quality build and ergonomic design found in the rest of the Osmo family. Using the DJI GO app, users can track their subject automatically, create motion timelapses, take dramatic long exposures, make 9-shot panoramas, and livestream their story to social media. Pricing starts at $299 and is available this spring.
Inmotor Go Personal Transportation Device
Traveling around campus? Around town? Inmotor Go is built for the busy commuter. Weighing approximately 27 pounds, the Inmotor Go is a personal transportation device meant to travel with you during your commute. Inmotor Go features a highly-stable battery that can withstand the elements (unlike some of their competitors) as well as a collapsible design that makes it easy to carry wherever you go. With speeds ranging from walking pace to a brisk 20 miles per hour, it can go as far as 20 miles on a single charge! A built-in smartphone dock allows you to use your smartphone for GPS navigation, listening to music, or much more during your commute. Price point starts at $399 and, if successfully funded, will start shipping April 2017.
Radon is an invisible, odorless gas that claims the lives of approximately 21,000 Americans each year. Its presence in homes and businesses can be extremely difficult to locate without test kits. However, these test kits are one-time use and require laboratory testing to confirm whether or not dangerous Radon gas is present in your home. AirThings Wave aims to reinvent that by being the first home radon detector connected to the cloud. With an app or a simple wave of the hand over the Wave’s sensor, a light ranging from Green, Yellow, or Red confirms whether the air quality is safe in your home. To prevent from unnecessary false positives, Wave measures the radon levels constantly throughout your ahome to determine a baseline and where the radon levels are trending. This allows you to be more confident whether or not the air quality is dangerous. If dangerous Radon gas is detected and AirThings Wave signals you with a Red warning, the app provides instructions on how to contact experts for help. Pricing starts at $199 and will begin shipping in March 2017.
