Monkey Business – January 2024

Inspired with great hope for the future…
January 27, 2024

I had the experience of a lifetime at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas January 9-12. As the representative for Envisioning Access, I was so honored to be invited by the Consumer Technology Association Foundation (CTA), the nonprofit arm of CTA that hosts CES every year. The CTA Foundation’s mission is to link seniors and persons with disabilities with technology. We certainly fit into that mission with our work.

CES is the largest consumer electronics show in the world. If there is a new technology on the horizon, it is often making a debut at CES. I witnessed some of the most amazing current technology as well as future technology for commerce, food, the automobile industry, along with the latest in robotics and augmented/virtual reality. AI was the true star of CES – it permeated every type of technology. There was even an AI booth to tell one’s fortune. I did not indulge!

In between all the amazing robots, meeting brilliant scientists, and listening to awe-inspiring speakers, I was most excited about the large number of companies devoted to providing opportunities for people with disabilities, keeping older adults healthy, and the very aged in their homes.
