CES Unveiled New York

CES Unveiled New York took over the Metropolitan Pavilion in Manhattan and gave attendees a sneak peek of what's to come at CES 2017.

From global powerhouses to startups of all stages, dozens of CES exhibitors showcased cutting edge technology to industry influencers, tech leaders and top media as the countdown to CES 2017 continues.

Here a few exhibitors from CES Unveiled New York that wowed attendees and gave us a little taste of what we might be in store for at CES 2017:


With 3D printing still on its upswing, San Diego-based Robo brought its R2 model to CES Unveiled New York. An CES Innovation Awards Winner, the Robo R2 is a high-performance smart 3D printer with WiFi that lets you tackle large-scale projects and make whatever you can imagine right from your mobile device using the Robo app. The printer also has a camera inside to let the user monitor what is being printed. It records each print in real time, letting you watch it come to life no matter where you are—all from your mobile device. "I'm excited that people can go online or just find files on their smartphone and literally just send it directly to the machine," said Co-Founder Braydon Moreno. "All our machines are phenomenal machines that are all connected with a true 3D printing app."


Wearables have been a common theme throughout the technology industry over the past years, but now the game is changing with the introduction of hearables. At CES Unveiled New York, Oticon showed off its new Oticon OPM. Its technology allows it to suppress environmental noises and focus in on the sounds or voices that the listener wants to hear. OPN also connects to the internet and to, which is a web service that automates other web-based functions to make life easier. Users can connect to a wide range of IFTTT-enabled devices used in everyday life such as door bells, baby monitors, thermostats or even get phone notifications or sports updates right to your ear. "With hearing loss, you might not be able to hear the doorbell wherever you are in the house," said Oticon's William Banahan. "IFTTT will allow the OPN hearing aid to connect to whatever 'recipe' you write."

Perfect Corp.

One of the most interactive companies on the floor at CES Unveiled New York, Perfect Corp. displayed its YouCam Makeup app. YouCam Makeup is the smart cosmetic kit, harnessing the most accurate facial mapping technology for a true-to-life virtual makeover. Apply hundreds of cosmetics products in real-time with Makeup Cam or to selfie photos. It allows you to try on different makeup brands or celebrity looks without actually putting anything on your face. All you need to do is get in front of camera and the app does the rest of the work. "We create the ultimate beauty journey experience for the beauty lover," said Lindsay Colameo, senior beauty editor at Perfect Corp. "We give you a platform directly from your phone to try on and buy actual products from brands like Laura Geller, Estee Lauder or Ardell Lashes straight from the app."
