The Consumer Electronic Show (CES) Innovation Awards showcased their 2015 honorees and winners for consumer technology products, yesterday. These awards exemplify the future of technology for the upcoming year, and let me tell you, the products mentioned did not disappoint.
The Consumer Electronic Show (CES) (for anyone who may be unfamiliar) is the foremost industry trade show for consumer electronics and is held each January in Las Vegas.

The coolest new consumer electronics products are featured at CES Las Vegas and the best of the best are awarded a coveted CES Innovation Award Honoree status.
I want to highlight some winners from yesterday's announcement! Drumroll, please . . .
So here at Lynktec we are very excited to share that the elite CES judging committee has just selected Reeljuice
as CES 2015 Innovation Award Honoree based on its engineering qualities, aesthetic and design qualities, and user value!

Reeljuice is an all-in-one power solution for smart phone and tech junkies alike. Reeljuice is the first portable power solution to include a fully retractable cord reel with multiple connectors, a 5W rapid charger and a retractable wall charger. All this while staying thin and convenient for purses or pockets. Reeljuice will be in the market soon and is currently available to pre-order at a significant discount through Kickstarter.

Another piece of future technology from the CES Innovation Awards is the Adidas'
Smart Ball. This tech innovation is part of the Fitness, Sports and Biotech category, and it is seriously a cool and innovative item that sports lovers will appreciate.

Your typical polyester blend ball has nothing on this futuristic soccer ball. The Smart Ball has sensors built in to calculate speed, spin, flight path and impact point of a players kick. This data is then transmitted via Bluetooth so players can easily get the information from their moves out on the field.
Another CES Innovation Award honoree is Petnet(io)'s SmartFeeder in the Home Applications category. This is a futuristic solution to a common problem of pet owners. The SmartFeeder will make sure puppy Fido is well taken care of, even when you don't have the time to make sure yourself.

SmartFeeder is a pretty cool innovation, especially for those who love their pups and kitties but are busy or um . . . let's say forgetful. The feeder includes remote feeding capabilities, customized portions and food recommendations based on what pet you have.
The next product I want to mention is the mobile app Kwilt. Kwilt was mentioned in the Software and Mobile Apps category of the CES Innovation Awards. For all of you picture-loving, unorganized, social-media-fanatics, this is the application for you.

Kwilt is perfect for the person who loves photos and social media, but cannot seem to stay organized enough to find the images they are searching for. Kwilt allows for easy photo management giving the user access to all of their photo files from all social media platforms in one location. Pretty cool, huh?! Kwilt is now available for download!
The final product I am going to highlight is the Snap by Sengled. This won best innovation in the Smart Home category, and let me tell you, this is a high-tech lamp, if you can even call it something so simple.

This indoor/outdoor lamp includes an HD camera, microphone and speakers. It includes motion and voice activation and face recognition to aid in home security. This sneaky device is definitely high-tech and makes for an awesome "Smart Home".
It's safe to say the CES Innovation Awards make for a great event in the technology community. The products mentioned are the future of what technology has in store, and it is something for all tech-lovers to take note of.
