NEW YORK, Aug. 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Living in Digital Times, an events and conference production company focused on the intersection of lifestyle and technology, and the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, the owner and producer of CES®, the world's gathering place for all involved in the business of consumer technologies, announced today the launch of Beauty Tech and Baby Tech, a special two-day series of showcases and panel discussions at CES 2016 focused on technology for the beauty and baby product industries. The latest tech advancements shaping the future of these goliath industries will be on display and be hot topics of discussion live from the show floor at Tech West (Venetian Ballroom in Las Vegas, Nevada) on January 6 and 7.
"The introduction of Beauty Tech and Baby Tech at CES exemplifies once again how technology has become a part of every aspect of our daily lives," said Robin Raskin, founder and president of Living in Digital Times. "From infancy all the way to the aging population, from our fitness regimens to our fashion accessories and our daily beauty routines, there are innovative high-tech solutions. How to look your best and raise a baby with some degree of sanity is one more instance to celebrate technology."
"In partnership with Living in Digital Times, we've created a powerful narrative of how companies and services of all sizes, at all stages in the product life cycle, use CES as their showcase," said Karen Chupka, senior vice president, CES & corporate business strategy, CEA. "At CES 2016, the new focus on baby and beauty technologies will provide an experiential hands-on showcase that will be compelling to those interacting with much of the lifestyle tech industry."
Advances in technology are creating the most rapid change in the beauty industry since the invention of the blow dryer. Thanks to these advances, there is a new understanding of everything from improving skin age to high-tech makeup application. There is no aspect of beauty that has not been given a tech makeover, including new regimens for healthier hair, whiter teeth, more beautiful eyes and even better posture.
Within the showcase, attendees can expect to see and experience an array of digital innovations helping people look and feel their best, including:
- Augmented and virtual reality beauty experiences
- Tools for skin and hair analysis
- Dermatological enhancements
- Age detection analysis
- Massage treatments
- Professional advice from tech beauty experts
Approximately four million babies are born in the U.S. every year with $23 billion spent on baby products. This generation of digitally raised parents has come to expect and rely upon digital solutions to get through the day. Baby Tech showcases the products and services that are revolutionizing early stage parenting, providing technology assistance for mom and dad from the womb through the toddler years.
At CES, Baby Tech explores the best of breed, the new retail opportunities, the characteristics of today's parents (and grandparents) and the remarkable power of using tech to quantify a baby's life. That includes:
- Smartphone-enabled fertility monitors and sonograms
- Bluetooth-enabled devices, from smart pacifiers to smart baby bottles
- Strollers with GPS capabilities
- Sensor-filled infant car seats
- And much, much more!
