Best of CES 2016: From TV Streaming Refrigerators to Robot Dogs

The first week of the year saw plenty of announces coming from Consumer Electronics Show - CES 2016 in Las Vegas. If there were an unofficial slogan for the CES year, it would be Evolutionary, Not Revolutionary

The good just got better. Drones are still commanding the air space. Cars continue to work hard on driving themselves. Virtual reality keeps on climbing and homes are getting smarter and smarter. Technology continues to become more personal as self quantification is still all the rage. And at the core of our world, our namesake even, the mighty PC still looms large, albeit slightly smaller and sleeker than the year before.

With thousands of products, and plenty of opinionated analysts and editors at CES, it wasn't easy to finalize our top picks, but we did our best to bring you this list of ??? standouts. Many of these products will be key in shaping the tech landscape for the next 12 months. And some of them might not even make it to market. A good number of CES 2015 winners we CorD presented last year were top performers, while some vanished into the ether. Here are the most interesting, innovative, and important things we choose for you from this year’s CES 2016.

Samsung Family Hub Smart Fridge
PRICE: €5000

The futuristic tech fridge has become a cliche in science fiction.. What makes this fridge so smart is the touchscreen on the door that has a larger display than most home computers. The Smart Fridge can set reminders, play music, and stream TV. The fridge even takes a picture of its contents each time its closed to prevent having to indecisively hold its door open… which you can view from your phone. So, from now on you’ll never wonder “Do we have any food?”.

Gadgets for Summer 2015


Until around ten years ago, gadgets were viewed as toys intended primarily for children. However, these devices then started becoming increasingly sophisticated and useful – so much so that today everyone seemingly has at least one device that is always with them.

Whether you will spend this summer on the ocean, basking beside the sea, enjoying rivers, lakes and pools or high on a mountain, some of these gadgets will certainly grab your attention.

At The Edge Of Reality

Mobile World Congress 2015 surpassed all projections, with over 95,000 attendees from 200 countries

Hosted in the Mobile World Capital Barcelona for the 10th year, Mobile World Congress 2015 attendees were treated to a wealth of learning and networking opportunities; product showcases and announcements; inspiration and innovation, including speakers from consumer brands, mobile organisations, mobile operators and industries touched by the mobile market. If we add advertising, banking, health, entertainment and education experts presented in all together more than 40 conference sessions at MWC, this year Congress, celebrating 10th anniversary, has all reasons to get attributes to be the world’s biggest and most influential mobile event.

Almost 2,000 companies exhibited their latest and most enticing mobile products in the hectic and winding halls of the Fira Gran Via convention center in Barcelona. The show was mostly focused on the major smartphone manufacturers, as well as global telecom, and on smaller companies from Europe and the Middle East – French, Israeli, and Spanish entrepreneurs were out in force – though there were also especially large presences by plenty of Asian and African companies as well. MWC has grown to encompass anything that can connect to the Internet – not just your phone or your tablet.

Here are a few exhibits that caught our eye.
