Two staffers from Escondido based Left Coast Engineering attended the massive 50th annual Consumer Electronics Show this month in Las Vegas. Amy Archipov and Anita Baranowski attended the show, along with the more than 180,000 people who converged on Las Vegas for this 4-day event.
Typically, this is a weekday convention but this year the CES Show was hosted from Thursday through Sunday for the first time in many years. This event celebrated 50 years in 2017 and serves as a forumfor companies with new technologies from all over the world to meet and share their latest efforts.
Left Coast was there in support of its customer, Wivity, which has created technology for easily interchanged (hot swappable) modems for industrial IoT (Internet of things) devices to connect anywhere in the world. With Wivity, device installers and even end-users can plug in modems for any wireless network. WiFi, cellular, satellite, or any future network- all are accessible with Wivity. Wivity is a privately-heldcompany headquartered in San Francisco, California. @wivity
While there, the LCE team had a sneak peak at some of the newest developments. Here are some highlights:
The Modobag booth was full of ener- gy as the team showed off their design of a motorized, smart and connected carry-on luggage that you can ride. Fun and three times faster than walking, it has USB ports for charging your devices as you travel.
Foldimate makes a robotic laundry folding machine. Simple enough for anyone to use,just hang your clean clothes on the clips, turn on, the machine folds your clothes and can even add perfumes, softeners and de-wrinklers.
Two products to aid tennis players caught the attention of the Left Coasters. First, Tennibot is a robotic personal tennis ball collector with sophisticated sensors that detects and picks up tennis balls on the court, no more bending over. Second, Perform Pro is a tennis smartwatch that tracks your forehands, backhands, serves, and volleys, giving you meaningful data that helps your game.
