Report Summary:

While Amazon’s Alexa, drones, autonomous cars, and VR/AR were obvious themes of this year’s CES, one underlying theme this report aims to address is what announcements are improving these spaces and providing a more useful, usable, and compelling experience?   Various announcements involving Alexa, gamification and licensing of drones, Lego robots, HTC’s Vive Tracker, and Under Armour’s new connected shoes all look to do just that in the coming year.
