Showing Consumers Smart Home Technology

Initiative Description

The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is an annual trade show organized by the Consumer Technology Association. The event typically hosts presentations of new products and technologies in the consumer electronics industry. AT Act Partner, the NEAT Center, participated in the CES 2021, which was completely virtual. NEAT staff was interviewed about their Smart Home on Wheels (the SHOW) and their partnership with the Consumer Technology Association Foundation. The SHOW was created specifically with support from the CT AT Act Program, to be able to show consumers smart home technology they may be able to use in their homes to increase independence and improve their quality of life. The SHOW has become quite a hit, making appearances at AT and technology events in New England and beyond. This interview was aired during CES 2021, over 175,000 typically attend this event.
