Indesign’s Las Vegas Return: CES 2023

January 31, 2023 | Blog
Indesign, LLC will be celebrating its 26th anniversary in February. And for nearly all of those 26 years, we have attended the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. I say “nearly” only because the pandemic ruined that, too, as we didn’t attend in 2021 or 2022. But things are feeling more and more back to normal, as Indesign and thousands of other companies returned to CES in 2023, which clocked in a respectable 115,000 attendees (compared to last year’s measly 45,000). This year’s show was especially awesome for myself and, electrical engineer, Matt Streicher, as it was our first-ever trip to the iconic event. Contrast that with the roughly 30 years of CES attendance by our fearless leader Ron Kern, and you can imagine how often he felt like a tour guide. Face-to-Face Connections Our Indesign trio enjoyed a productive and impactful few days. Though we regularly interact with clients and partners virtually, nothing beats face-to-face conversations. We met with many of our wonderful semiconductor and manufacturing partners to discuss the latest trends and technologies. We explored the vast show floors filled with gadgets, gizmos, and immersive exhibits (like LG’s phenomenal display in the video below). And most importantly, we spent time connecting with clients, often over a meal in one of the many fantastic restaurants that Vegas offers. Your browser does not support the video tag. Outside the Comfort Zone CES 2023 even offered us engineers an opportunity to explore outside of our comfort zones. If you asked us on a normal day, “Where’s a place you’re unlikely to ever be spotted?”, a perfectly valid answer would be, “In a nightclub.” But when we received an invitation to a party at the OMNIA Nightclub in Caesars Palace from our friends at the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG), we figured that might just be the kind of nightclub party that we’d fit in at. So we went, we didn’t dance, and we had a blast. We even found some Nordic friends there (the semiconductor kind; not the kind from Norway). Though it’s a year away, we’re already looking forward to CES 2024. We hope to see you there!

CES 2018: Indesign was there with lots of tech

January 23, 2018 | News
Indesign exhibited at CES 2018 for the 21st year in a row this January.  The Indesign booth was located in the Sands Expo Center in the Health and Wellness section of the show.  In addition to having a booth in the Sands, we were also in most of the venues of the show visiting with clients, suppliers, and 3rd party partners.  The Indesign team spent the week in Las Vegas meeting with potential new clients as well as witnessing some new and exciting technology. Sensors are all around us and were found in all areas of the show.  The Internet of Things (IoT) was present in each of the areas/marketplaces.  For example, L’Oreal was showing a small body-worn sensor that can detect ultraviolet exposure.  Next to us in the Smart Home area, companies like ADT, Kwikset, and Comcast were showing simulated homes loaded with sensors that interact with people on a daily basis.  Outside of the main marketplaces in the Sands, Amazon Alexa had a dedicated space showing off where and how Alexa and voice control can play a part in our everyday lives.  But it didn’t stop there, we saw the presence of Alexa and AWS throughout the show including in-vehicle and many other personal electronic gadgets. In addition to what we expect to see in the next couple years, there were also some technologies demonstrated that are up and coming in the next 5 to 10 years.  One example of that was an LG 65” rollable OLED TV – the amazing thing is it didn’t look like it would be rollable.  That (along with drones that will transport people, self-driving vehicle demos and scrabble playing robots) make it an exciting show to visit and reassuring that the world of tech is alive and well.
