Toshiba Glasses Free 3D TV at CES 2011
This week WGSN has been reporting live from the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Three of the hot technology trends to emerge so far include:

Glasses-free 3D TV: With consumers often complaining about the need to wear glasses to experience 3D content in the home, several manufacturers are showing large TV displays that work without them. There is still work to be done but the technology has taken a big step forward

Tablets: After the huge success of Apple’s iPad, rival tablets are one of the hot stories of the show. Key devices include Motorola’s Xoom, Samsung’s Sliding PC 7 Series and the new BlackBerry PlayBook

The connected home: Alongside the more traditional PCs, TVs, and portable devices connecting to the internet, now home appliances are getting in on the act, pointing the way to a future where all kinds of items in the home make use of the power of the web
