Because of the conditions imposed by the outbreak of the Coronavirus epidemic, the largest annual exhibition dedicated to technology, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), will not open this year in Las Vegas showrooms, but online, with presentations remotely, under the slogan of fighting Corona virus.

This very special edition of the Consumer Electronics Show for 2021 focuses on combating the Coronavirus at all levels, and on multiplying proposals for the post-pandemic world, whether in terms of sustainable health or telework, and there are a number of innovations that catch attention and instill hope.

Corona virus detector

In the report published by the French magazine L'Obs, writer Boris Manente says that the detection device for the Corona virus is a dream for all manufacturers.

BioIntelliSense is one of the first companies to come close to making this discovery thanks to the BioButton device.

It is not a device capable of detecting the virus in the air, but an adhesive tracker placed on the chest to detect the slightest symptoms of Coronavirus.

The sensor continuously records skin temperature, heart and respiratory rates, activity level and sleep in order to allow self-diagnosis of the first symptoms of the Coronavirus.

Bio-Intelligence took advantage of the Consumer Electronics Show to announce a collaboration with the American College of Cardiology, after its association with the University of Colorado Hospital, which provides caregivers with Bioptone devices immediately after vaccinations.

Bio-Intelligence hopes to gradually convince all organizations and companies to equip their employees to prevent the spread of infection.

Connected 'smart' mask

It seems that the WHO message about the need to wear a mask inspired the manufacturers who participated in this exhibition with connected models of masks, as the company "AirPop" emerged thanks to "Active +", which is the first "smart mask", and reminds of the reusable masks Use, which is popular with young people, but it provides a connection via bluetooth with a smartphone.

The sensor in this mask transmits to the app data such as the number of breaths per minute or the quality of the outside air in real time.

This allows for awareness when the filter needs to be replaced, and is useful for athletes to monitor their performance during a workout.

Portable air purifier

The author shows that the market for air purifiers was mainly booming, but the demand for it has increased dramatically with the spread of the epidemic.

Studies by NASA and the National Agency for Food Safety, Environment, Health and Labor demonstrate the effectiveness of air purifiers equipped with highly efficient air filters against the Corona virus.

Luft Qi’s Luft Duo is especially attractive because it is portable.

This battery-powered device purifies the air both at home and in the office with high-quality particulate absorption efficiency.

And it is suitable for cleaning the air and eliminating "corona virus" in an area of ​​not less than 22 square meters.

Robot disinfectant

Another technology exhibited in this technological event is OV-C, which is ultraviolet lamps with a wavelength ranging between 100 and 280 nanometers, and these rays are used to sterilize surfaces.

"The lamps (or V-C) will make it possible to inactivate viruses," Geraldine Dantel, in charge of research at the National Center for Scientific Research, explains to the "FR Android" website.

Consequently, UBTech Robotics is introducing an Adibot robot that is capable of disinfection thanks to a UV lamp, which can move around the room on its own to completely clean surfaces and eliminate pathogens, including the virus. Corona.

Protective screen

LG Corporation is taking advantage of CES to unveil the first transparent screens designed to prove useful in restaurants.

The South Korean manufacturer promotes the television as a protective barrier between customers and the restaurant president.

And the transparent screen protects from saliva that may fly in the air, while allowing to monitor the meal preparation, and better still, it allows viewing the menu, to choose the dish that you will eat.
