Partnering with Denver, Colorado, Panasonic introduced the first smart city concept at last year’s CES presentation. Side-by-side with Denver Mayor Michael Hancock, Panasonic boasted how smart city integration could help everything from energy efficiency to combat traffic and more.

Mayor Hancock told us last year he’d be back in 2017 to update everyone on the progress with Panasonic.

Let’s look at what Panasonic presented, what we can expect from the show floor and more from their CES press conference.

While you’ll always find interesting and quirky thing on the CES show floors throughout Las Vegas, private events like Pepcom’s Digital Experience provide a one-on-one opportunity you might not get during the show.

TechNorms’ second year at Digital Experience, showcasing some of the same folks we saw at CES Unveiled the night before and bringing us face-to-face with new, innovative, and curious gadgets and tech.

Let’s look at seven of our best finds from Pepcom’s Digital Experience.

LG prides itself in innovation for a better life. Whether it’s smart home technology, its line of OLED televisions, or something in between, LG has been breaking barriers in the technology industry for decades.

With IoT front and center this year, along with robotics, LG looked to merge the two together in ways that help us at home, at work, and elsewhere in our lives.

Let’s look at what LG presented, what we can expect from the show floor, and more from their CES press conference.

Qualcomm may not be a name you associate with excitement and entertainment at CES, but they sure know how to bring innovation. Whether it’s the smartphone in your hand using the SnapDragon processor or the car you’re driving using Q’s technology to make it smart, Qualcomm has cemented itself as the company others rely on to make smart tech, well, smart.

We expected Qualcomm to update us on the latest SnapDragon processor as well as introduce us to new partnerships from the CES floor.

Let’s look at what Qualcomm presented, what we can expect from the show floor, and more from their CES press conference.

Samsung didn’t disappoint at its annual CES press conference. With lines starting to form two hours before it even began, CES wanted to see what Samsung would bring to the table after the disastrous 2016 the tech giant had with the issues surrounding the Note 7.

From its new QLED TV technology to advancements to its Family Hub smart refrigerator technology, Samsung surprised everyone by announcing its first Windows-based gaming laptop and more.

Let’s look at what Samsung presented, what we can expect from the show floor, and more from their CES press conference.

Faraday Future was one of those company’s last year that made a big impact because nobody quite knew who they were or what they were doing.

The FFZERO1 concept car last year on the show floor was cool to look at and Faraday Future had big aspirations on what it wanted to do by 2017.

Flash forward to CES 2017 and the company’s big reveal event. Does it live up to the hype?

At the Honor product launch, the press and industry analysts got their first look at the Honor 6X. Capitalizing on the brand’s enormous popularity in China, Honor is looking to break into the smartphone market in North America and Europe in 2017.

The Honor 6X isn’t groundbreaking, but it comes with an innovative promise: A high-quality phone for half the price. Starting at $250, the Honor 6X has lofty goals to fulfill that promise.

Let’s look at what Honor presented, what we can expect from the show floor, and more from their CES press conference.

Fiat Chrysler, or FCA, introduced its Portal concept car in a bid to win over millennials looking toward integrating technology and driving. Chrysler capitalized on the idea of “the third space” where younger generations are spending more time in between one place or another on the road.

This third space idea turned into the Portal which came alive on stage during FCA’s press conference at CES 2017.

Here's what FCA presented, what we can expect from the show floor, and more from their CES press conference.

CES Unveiled is one of my favorite events each year. It gives members of the press one-on-one time with companies big and small. Most of these companies can be found on the floor of one of the many CES show floor locations, but CES Unveiled is a much smaller and intimate event.

This gives us the chance to go hands on with products, talk with developers, ask questions, and really see what makes these companies stand out from the competition.

Here’s five of the best finds from 2017’s CES Unveiled event.

It seems like just yesterday we were on the show floor covering the ins and outs of CES 2016. Now, CES 2017 is upon us and TechNorms is looking forward to another fun-filled adventure to Sin City.

Before we hit The Strip bringing you the latest and greatest CES offers, let’s look at some of the big trends to expect from this year’s show.
