Event Recap: CES Unveiled New York

The Consumer Electronics Association held its CES Unveiled New York event today, offering a taste of the upcoming big event in Vegas. Keynotes from CEA leaders like Gary Shapiro listed their predictions for 2015 (wearables: in, gaming: in, politics: complicated), and made a few announcements: CBS President Les Moonves will give a keynote at CES, an area called “C Space” will be dedicated to marketing and content, and Shark Tank will hold an open casting call for entrepreneurial startups.

The Metropolitan Pavillion was crammed with a microcosm of CES exhibits — Bluetooth antennas, the smart home, gigantic televisions, smart fitness, those magnetically levitating speakers you keep seeing but still can’t buy — giving an inkling of what’s to come. IPG Media Lab will be carefully following developments leading up to CES 2015, so stay tuned.
