re: CES 2013: 5 Dumbest Ideas
One of the things I took away from not only this article, and the comments being left, and heck the CES trade show as well is really that sometimes what we see isn't always the end game. Well, maybe it is for some of the manufacturers and inventors, but just thinking about that fork for a moment ($100?!) makes me think about what might be possible in the future . . . detecting bacteria? Perhaps other foods that cause particular individuals allergic reactions? Calorie counting? These would be for when it can actually be truly smart, and not just have an accelerometer . . . some day, not today, and we don't get there without a few experiments along the way. Huawei may help determine what's too big, or maybe for some other uses (as Elliott Davis points out) like for those who are visually impaired. That's what I love about CES: it's always more about the future than about right now.
