CES 2020 has wrapped for another year and left us marvelling at all the amazing consumer tech products that are set to launch this year – and in years to come. 

Although the end of another CES makes the tech geek in all of us quite sad, there were so many highlights that got us super excited for what’s to come in the world of tech.  

Throughout the week, more than 100,000 people flocked to Las Vegas to see the latest and greatest consumer tech products. As always, Hisense had the ever-reliable Trevor Long from EFTM and Stephen Fenech from Tech Guide Australia on the ground, taking it all in and doing some trendspotting. 

Here are some of our highlights from the week. 

Smashing the stigma of hearing aides

Quite often, those with hearing loss can feel self-conscious about wearing traditional hearing aids. The Olive Union Smart Ear is a hearing aid designed like a wireless earbud and aims to help reduce the stigma that can come from wearing a typical hearing device. And better yet, it’s more affordable than a regular hearing aid, and it offers premium features like music-streaming and hands-free calling.

Technology is a wonderful thing, especially when it’s used for good to solve problems that can have negative effects on people. Abeye’s Lexilens reading aid eyewear for dyslexics is a game-changing piece of smart tech. The Abeye Lexilens uses specially designed electronic lenses to help filter out the mirrored images dyslexics see while reading. The result is instantaneous, and it works regardless of language, and without any required training. How good is that?
