Meanwhile, Xenoma’s smart skin clothes not only monitor movement, but they can also provide vital health statistics. And, Adero’s tags and its associated app won’t let you forget anything as you walk out the door.
Seedsheets uses connected sensors to help anyone to develop a green thumb. And you can cook those vegetables with ANOVA’s cooking stick. Finally, you can create a multi-camera, video recording studio in your home or anywhere and stream your latest creation to the world.
Voice assistants and intelligence everywhere is what Legrand and Brilliant demonstrated with these technologies integrated into light switches and more. Meanwhile, LinTo, with its open-source voice assistant approach, is focusing on the business market by providing businesses with an opportunity to control their own data.

With the proliferation and ease of ridesharing, it is beyond sad that the number one cause of death on U.S. roadways is still drunk driving. MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) estimates that someone is injured every two-minutes and someone is killed every 51-minutes in a drunk driving crash. And it’s not just drinking, as “drugged driving is an emerging and growing threat we cannot ignore,” writes Helen Witty, MADD National President. Beyond education, MADD CEO, Adam Vanek, suggests technology will be an important tool in reaching their goal of “No more victims.”
