CES 2019 is now in full swing. The world’s most massive tech event takes place in Las Vegas every year and attracts about 180,000 tech professionals from 155 countries, over 4,500 exhibiting companies, as well as major media and prominent bloggers. We've rounded up three top tech gadgets unveiled this year that are relevant for hotels.
LG Rollable TV
Imagine a TV screen able to completely blend into the design of a hotel room, be placed in front of a window or bookshelf and quietly disappear when you don't watch it. According to LG, "A rollable TV is a true game-changer, liberating users from the limitations of the wall and freeing them to curate their own personal space". The screen also doubles-up as a sound base and support for Alexa and Google Assistant integration are being added for the full roll-out this year.
Google Interpreter Mode
Although Google Translate has seen huge improvements over the past years, Google Assistant's new interpreter mode takes it to the next level and can now translate live conversations in 27 different languages. Basically, you can now hold conversations with someone who doesn't share the same tongue.
Savvy Smart Mirror
Mirrors are essential to any lifestyle. They tell us how we look, and how we present ourselves, but the Savvy Smart Mirror can tell you even more than that - it can tell you the weather, or the news, or tell you about interesting attractions nearby, or let you control the lights in your room. It's equally appealing to businesses and consumers, and it could have a big impact on not only lifestyle, but happiness.
