Not all of the gadgetry announced at the Consumer Electronics Show this year solves just business problems. Some new technologies help people have fun, keep track of things, or enhance personal spaces.
Here’s a summary of three new items that check those boxes. We found this emerging technology intriguing, and you may wonder why no one thought of it before.
Verge Motorcycles launches high-performance model
A highly anticipated new electric motorcycle line from Verge Motorcycles is now available for pre-reservations in the US. The company announced that it will start selling in select states during 2023.
By making an early reservation, fans can indicate their interest to be in touch when the long-awaited electric motorcycles go on sale in the United States. Verge announced the start of series production of its other models, the Verge TS and Verge TS Pro, for select European markets in November. Here is their brand clip “Introducing Verge TS Pro – The Electric Superbike”.
The new Verge TS Ultra model (pictured above) is one of the most advanced electric motorcycles out there. The Verge is known for its unique design and innovative integration of the rim motor inside the rear wheel. This pioneering technology enables a bigger battery, more extended range and great performance. Furthermore, the center of gravity is lower, providing a better riding experience than conventional electric motorcycles.
“We see a lot of potential in the market and look forward to [by] Bike enthusiasts will soon be rewarded with even more powerful and futuristic electric motorcycles,” said Tuomo Lehtimäki, CEO of Verge Motorcycles.
The Verge TS Ultra is a high-performance model designed from the ground up with electric drive in mind. The Verge TS and Verge TS Pro models already represent innovation. The performance of the new Ultra model is exceptional, with a range of up to 233 miles and a fast charging time of 25 minutes. With its 201 horsepower output, the bike accelerates from zero to 60 mph in just 2.5 seconds.
Commercial Smart Label Tracking Device
Pod Group, a Giesecke+Devrient (G+D) company and the world’s first Enterprise Network Operator (ENO), in partnership with Sodak and Lufthansa Industry Solutions (LHIND), announced on Tuesday the launch of a paper-thin tracking device. form of a smart label.
The device could revolutionize the logistics industry by allowing the tracking of smaller and lighter items. According to the company, this capability has not been possible before using traditional tracking devices.
“Smart mobile devices will play an increasing role in digital transformation across all industries. Due to its form factor and unique technology, smart labels enable a range of new use cases,” said Ingo Pietruska, Vice President of Business Development at LHIND.
Smart labels use low-power cellular connectivity (LTE CAT-M) to transmit data about device location and temperature back to a centralized dashboard, enabling logistics companies to track valuable items.
The package can be as small and light as an envelope containing important documents or as large as a full-size oil painting. The LEAP platform provided by LHIND enables geofences with notifications that can be set to alert the user when a package has entered or left strategic points along the supply chain.
The printed battery keeps the label as light as possible, while the use of low-power connectivity ensures that battery life is optimized and can last up to six months. The label can be used multiple times depending on the frequency of transmission. Alkaline batteries are also more environmentally friendly than traditional lithium batteries, and the materials used are recyclable.
“With smart labels, companies with complex supply chains can track their goods efficiently, reducing spoilage and theft. State-of-the-art low-power cellular communication technology can now deliver real-time tracking from a recyclable ultra-thin device can reliably send position, near temperature and shock alerts,” said Oli Smeenek, co-CEO of IoT hardware company Sodak.
