Tech for Citizen Journalists at CES ‘16
Every year, thousands converge on Las Vegas for the annual Consumer Electronics Show, which offers up the very latest gadgets and huge releases (with a sneak peek at what’s coming down the road) in technology. Attendees will be passing the football fields’-size display floors filled with everything from cool TVs to smart shoes and smart bras, laser hair-growing devices and a Smart Wheel (created by a kid who graduated from high school two years ago) that is supposed to alert you when you’re acting distracted in the car.
CES is also paradise for anyone hoping for a career in journalism or film, as new cameras and drones will be all the rage at the confab. A USA Today story, spotlighting five of the coolest entries at the show, tabs the $399 360fly camera (360fly.com), which plays off the sweeping panorama photo trend. The camera, which is as small as a little ball, has one lens and an enviable 4K image sensor, allowing you to take spherical view videos of the world around you, without complicated editing after the shoot. It's worth noting that at least 100 new drones will be introduced at the show this week, so if you’re attending, make sure to keep a look out…and duck when appropriate.
