By: Jak Connor | Trade Shows | Posted: 1 week, 3 days ago

CES 2020 - If you are bacon lover, you most likely wouldn't think that people could make plant-based bacon that tastes the same as normal bacon. Impossible Foods believes the opposite.


If you didn't know, Impossible Foods is a company whose sole purpose is to develop plant-based foods that are used as meat substitutes but taste the same. At this year's CES, Impossible Foods CEO, Pat Brown, was asked a question regarding research and development on a new product -- plant-based bacon.

The question was if the company was currently developing a plant-based bacon substitute for traditional bacon. In short, Brown said "of course we are!" Here's his full response, "In fact, we've already played around with it. We're not going to release a bacon product until we feel like anyone who is the most hardcore bacon worshiper thinks it's awesomely delicious. But we're definitely on track."

Oral-B reveals its next-gen AI-powered toothbrush at CES 2020

By: Jak Connor | Trade Shows | Posted: 1 week, 5 days ago

CES 2020 - CES 2020 is about to kick-off, and just like every year, there are product announcements that are head-turning.


At the moment, Oral-B has my attention as the company has just announced its latest and greatest toothbrush, the iO. The company says that the iO is a result of six years of research and development and feedback from over 1,800 test users. So how does it compare to your standard toothbrush? The iO uses "oscillating, rotating movements" that is powered by "linear magnetic drive".

There is also a pressure sensor that gives users feedback on if they are not providing enough or are exerting too much cleaning pressure. Obviously, the specs of the toothbrush don't stop there, as it also has in-built artificial intelligence that gives real-time feedback on your current brush via the Oral-B iO app. This feedback will give users what Oral-B are calling real-time "tracking and coaching".

The Lexilight reading lamp is designed to assist dyslexia readers

By: Jak Connor | Trade Shows | Posted: 1 week, 5 days ago

CES 2020 - At the moment, we aren't quite sure what the direct cause of dyslexia is, but what we do know is that we can certainly help people with dyslexia.


The consensus on what is causing dyslexia in people is that both eyes of the person experiencing dyslexia are dominant instead of the usual one eye. This creates focus problems and makes for simple tasks like reading big hurdles for those that are experiencing it.

Luckily, there are people out there with the goal of helping those people/companies with dyslexia, and Lexilife, a company out of France, is one of those companies. Lexilife has shown off its newest product at CES 2020, and its called the Lexilight. This light is specifically designed to assist people with dyslexia as the lamp pulses at customizable rates.

By: Jak Connor | Trade Shows | Posted: 1 week, 5 days ago

CES 2020 - Muse has new real-time feedback headband that is designed for monitoring users while they sleep.


Muse first released their brain-sensing headband back in 2013, and since then, the device has seen improvements in a multitude of ways. This new iteration of the device comes equipped with a guided meditation teacher that responds in real-time to what the headband is currently monitoring, which is body movements, heart rate, brain activity, and breathing.

The new device is called the Muse S and comes in at a hefty $350. Upon purchase, Muse buyers will also need access to the Muse library, which costs $13 a month or $95 a year. While the Muse S is certainly not cheap in any way, it could be your go-to-sleep solution if you are one to struggle with calming your thoughts. The Muse S is currently available to purchase in the US, and Muse is planning a worldwide release soon.

CES gives award to cannabis product, but bans saying cannabis at show

By: Jak Connor | Trade Shows | Posted: 1 week, 5 days ago

CES 2020 - CES 2020 is about to explode with hype as we are already hearing about a slew of strange and awesome products that will be exhibited at the show.


But what if the product you are exhibiting is designed for something you technically cannot mention while you are exhibiting? On top of that, what if your product has also received an Innovation Award Honoree award for CES 2020? Keep Labs has unfortunately fallen into that specific category with their Keep smart storage container that is specifically designed for cannabis.

CTA the trade group behind CES has said to Keep Labs that even though the company has won an award for their Keep storage container they will only be able to exhibit the product if the company's signage, marketing materials and the product is completely free from cannabis, and any cannabis paraphernalia. Due to the product being designed specifically for cannabis, Keep Labs decided it was best not to exhibit at the show.
