NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — If you love gadgets and electronics, the latest and greatest products were being unveiled in Chelsea Wednesday.
CBS2’s Cindy Hsu was at the Metropolitan Pavilion for Consumer Electronics Week to find out what’s hot in the tech world.
If you’re a pet lover, the Petzi Treat Cam gives you live video of your pet at home, and you can send them a treat.
“It ejects your pet’s favorite treat at the tap of a button on the app, at that point your pet’s thrilled they get to hear your voice in the middle of the day. They got a treat,” Dave Clark, Petzila said.
For music lovers, there’s a whole wireless music system inside a light bulb. It’s called Pulse. Everything, including the speaker, is in the bulb — which can be twisted into most regular sockets.
“Most people are installing these bulbs in their kitchen or in their living room area, and sometimes on their outdoor patio,” Ben Thacker, Sengled said.
You control the music with an app.
If you’re having trouble sleeping, the RestOn strap fits onto your mattress under your sheet. While you’re sleeping it monitors your heart rate, how long it took you to get to sleep, and whether you stopped breathing at all — which can be a sign of sleep apnea. The information is sent to your smartphone.
“If one of them is a little out of whack and you notice that by the number you press on it, and it will give you a tip on how to improve your sleep,” Howard Borenstein of Sleepace USA explained.
If you’re tired of using remote controls, how about using a hand movement to control all of your media entertainment? It’s the Singlecue universal control, and it can also be connected to your air conditioning and lighting.
There’s also a lot of new ‘smart jewelry’ coming out. The VinWear bracelet tracks your steps and vibrates and lights up when you get an important text, call, or email.
For kids, there are all sorts of high-tech toys like the MiPosaur for dinosaur lovers, or the Meccanoid which your child can build and control through the app.
The show is only open to industry insiders, and most of the products either just hit market or will be available later this year.
