Today, I’m joining over 150,000 people who have gathered in Las Vegas, Nevada for the 2014 International CES. Over the next four days, those who shape the future will unveil the latest products, services and networks that will impact the future of innovation and our interaction with the world today and in years to come. The global consumer electronics and consumer technology trade show will showcase over 2700 exhibits…From 4K TV (ginormous105” curved HDTVs) to the latest in wearable technology (move over Fitbit)… New apps for smart cars… and predictions from big tech stars are just a few of highlights at 2014 CES…
I’m among 40+ educators from across the country taking part in the 2014 IRTS Faculty Seminar “Reaching Audiences in a Multi -Device World.” Thanks to the International Radio Television Foundation, the seminar includes a visit to the 2014 CES. On Monday, we heard from experts in the communications industry who weighed in on the future of innovation as it relates to journalism education. We also got a chance to do a group exchange on innovative teaching practices. Thanks to my colleague from Syracuse University, Dan Pacheco, I got a chance to test out Google Glass. The head mounted-wearable technology has all the resources of a smartphone that you access through voice commands without using your hands…. Really cool. Hope I can get one for my multimedia reporting class! (Are you listening Google??).
Stay tuned for my updates from 2014 CES. Remember…What happens in Las Vegas stays in Las Vegas and … on Social Media!
