CES 2020 Day 3 – Brydge Pro+ iPad Pro keyboards, automotive LiDAR devices, Wi-Fi 6 routers, and more
It's been three days at CES 2020 already and we can say that this year has been really good so far. We've seen vertical TVs, Wi-Fi 6 routers, and so much more. One of the most striking trends this year has been the product competition with big brands. We know how cool the AirPods are but the number of wireless earbuds that are being launched this year from big companies like JBL are changing the scene altogether. You now have options to choose from!
And just like that, we’ve come to day 3 at CES 2020. While we highlighted a lot of futuristic tech in the first two days, day 3 is all about new gadgets you can actually buy. This year at CES, we’ve seen a lot of gadgets that are trying to mimic big brand products with even better designs and pricing.
Be it the Apple AirPods like earbuds from JBL or Peloton-like bikes for fitness enthusiasts, competitors are everywhere when it comes to product design. Apart from hardware, CES 2020 got us introduced to a lot of tech announcements, the most recent one being from Spotify about their podcast ads. Now, with just one more day remaining, we are hoping to catch the last-minute glimpses of some amazing tech right from the show floor.
Goal Zero Yeti X Portable Battery Line
Whether you need one to run appliances out in the yard or around the house, or you keep one on hand for emergencies, Goal Zero’s Yeti X line has you covered. This new, expanded line of batteries features their most powerful battery yet, the 6000X, and all come with USB-C Power Delivery and faster solar charging. If you live in an area that’s prone to power outages or severe weather, this is just the type of thing you need on hand to make sure you have access to essentials.
Blue Indoor HD Security Camera
You can set up the Blue Indoor HD Security Camera quickly and easily on your own. Once you do, you’ll be ready to view and talk with anyone inside your home. And because it automatically stores video for up to 24 hours, this camera makes sure you always know what’s going on and what has happened. From the newly dubbed Blue by ADT, this indoor cam records in HD—and it does so even at night. Furthermore, you won’t have to worry about what it can see, as this indoor security cam has a 130-degree field of view.
VIZIO 2020 Quantum Color TV Collection
Each of these series offers SmartCast 4.0 for enhanced voice control. You can simply press the button on the included remote to speak your command. This new technology also provides a more personal home entertainment experience. The range includes the P-Series Quantum, P-Series Quantum Color, OLED, M-Series, and V-Series. All but the V-Series offers Quantum Color for impressive color and contrast, completely immersing you.
Chipolo One Bluetooth Tracking Device
Losing important belongings is one of the worst feelings in the world. Luckily, there’s the Chipolo One Bluetooth Tracking Device. This tracker uses Bluetooth to keep track of your important items, and it doesn’t require a subscription fee like other tracking services do. All you have to do is clip the Chipolo onto your item. And if you misplace the item, the device will play a 120dB sound, which means you’ll be able to hear it even in loud environments. You won’t need to worry about shushing everyone at the party so you can hear where your keys are.
Brydge Pro+ iPad Pro Keyboard
When paired with one of these devices, this portable keyboard gives it even more abilities. In fact, it’s designed with a large trackpad that lets you make the most of your iPad Pro. It works with the new Assistive Touch features, helping you launch the dock wherever you are. Not only that, but the Brydge iPad Pro full-size keyboard also offers adjustable-brightness keys. Additionally, it has a three-month battery life once it’s fully charged.
TP-Link Deco Mesh Wi-Fi 6 Router Collection
You don’t have to put up with dead zones where you can’t access the internet you’re paying for. Instead, install a device from the TP-Link Deco Mesh Wi-Fi 6 Router Collection. This range from TP-Link uses a mesh system to essentially cover your entire home with an internet signal. That way, you’re never caught without access to the internet, no matter where you are. Available in three models, the Deco range includes the Deco X90, Deco X60, and Deco X20. All of these Deco Mesh routers work with the Wi-Fi 6 standard.
ASUS Chromebook Flip C436 360º Hinge Laptop
The impressive ASUS Chromebook Flip C436 360º Hinge Laptop is here. The new C436 has a hinge that opens completely, so you can use this Chromebook as a tablet if you want. If you move the hinge partway, you can use the computer in tent mode, open completely flat, or as a laptop. So if you’re sitting at your desk, it’s easy to use this new Chromebook like a regular computer. But you can also use it on the go as a tablet with ease.
Livox Horizon & Tele-15 Automotive LiDAR Devices
As the industry grows, safety becomes increasingly more important. The Livox brand by DJI launched the Horizon and Tele-15 LiDAR devices, which create a 3D view of the world. While all LiDAR devices do this, these are a bit different because they don’t scan with straight lines. Instead, they use a pattern that expands out from the center. This creates a more detailed LiDAR. However, it also means that these LiDAR devices are easier to create, thus they’re less expensive.
JBL TUNE 220TWS Wireless Earbuds
Going with the latest norm of staying connected but not wired, the JBL TUNE 220TWS Wireless Earbuds come as a cool competition for the Apple AirPods. With a 12.5mm driver featuring JBL Pure Bass Sound, these earbuds are truly packed with great sound quality. They also come with 19 hours of combined playback which is commendable to have from an everyday gadget. In fact, they give you up to 3 hours of nonstop sound plus another 16 hours from the pocket-sized charging case.
Tile Pro Keychain Bluetooth Tracker (2020 Version)
More durable than previous versions, the 2020 model of the Tile Pro Keychain Bluetooth Tracker is made for adventure. This keychain tracker will endure your rough-and-tumble lifestyle. So stuff it in your backpack, cram it in your wallet, or toss it on the ground—and you’re good. And this Bluetooth tracking device also has a 400-foot range. So if you’re on a hike and you’ve dropped your phone somewhere, just press the keychain tracker to locate it. Or if you misplaced the Tile Pro 2020 somewhere in your large office building, its signal should reach.
Lexilight Reading Aid Lamp
If you suffer from dyslexia or know someone who does, you know just how hard it can be to sit down and read a book. But with new research that shows that people with dyslexia have two dominant eyes instead of just one, LexiLife created the Lexilight Reading Aid Lamp. This reading light combines both pulsed and modulated light to make it possible to erase the mirror effect that people with two dominant eyes experience. Thanks to this technology, people with dyslexia will be able to read faster and longer, and not experience the eye strain that typically hinders them from reading.
Hatch Restore All-in-One Sleep System
This light combines a reading light, soothing sounds, and a light-based alarm that feels like the sunrise. Hatch serves as a natural way to help you get a better night’s sleep and is a less-jarring way to wake up than traditional alarms that wake you up suddenly. And we all have seen the reports about blue light and how it affects our sleep. Now, you can go to bed and read that book you’ve been trying to finish without harming your sleep. If you’re a person who enjoys white noise or the sound of water when you sleep, Hatch has that as well.
