It's time for the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas - an event featuring the bleeding edge of technology and tech toys for girls and boys.
This year, Qualcomm is scheduled to take Microsoft's normal opening keynote slot, and is expected to talk about smartphone trends, particularly the expanding demand for data and increased smartphone connectivity with TVs, cars, and other connected devices. The idea is to develop stand-alone apps into "intelligent agents that use signals to push information, based on
location, preferences, calendar events and searches on engines across
networks," and enabling content to be shared across screens and operating systems.
On the bleeding edge, a number of firms will be discussing (and some displaying) technology that could pre-empt action for thought in user interfaces - using eye-tracking and/or brainwave-sensing for imputing users' intent in directing tech use.
More details and links to come, as the show continues.
