The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas has come a long way since it was first launched in New York in 1967. With 200 exhibitors attracting 17,500 attendees, the big news of the day back then was pocket radios and televisions with integrated circuits.i Fast forward to 2019, and a lot has changed.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a term that’s been floating around since 1999, but for much of that time, it seemed like little more than a buzzword. Over the years, a slew of IoT products have been introduced – and a vast majority of those products failed to achieve any sort of mass adoption. People began to dismiss IoT as primarily hype.
