‘Smart’ plank of wood among IoT devices showcased at CES 2019

This week in IoT, it is hard to ignore the glut of new devices released to the world at CES 2019, including a plank of wood. For the uninitiated, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is arguably one of the largest gadget expos in the world, but over the past five years or so it has transformed to the point that it now includes flying and autonomous cars among its roster. However, internet of things (IoT) devices remain the focus of much of the event, with every object you can think of being made ‘smart’ by connecting it to the internet. One of the most eyebrow-raising at the event was the Mui Smart Display that, when not active, looks like a plank of wood – because it is one.
