The Gadget Show 2015 – 11 Things we learnt

On the 10th April we shot up the M6 to the NEC, Birmingham.


Being the best day of the Easter holidays so far it was a shame to leave the sun on the door step but an exhibition that show cased a brim of the best gadgets in consumer technology could not be missed. There was something for everyone.



Stepping past the thresh hold we were immediately confronted with a giant, lightened rubix  cube, which colours flashed and moved around the 3D object. If that was the first thing to see that day things could only get better, this is what we learnt about the future of consumer technology…

1    If you thought 3D Printing was getting old it’s not – the range of products/pens has in fact got wider


2   Food preparation has got easy


3   Unsure what to get a niece or nephew for a last minute gift? Try a toy from RED 5 Retail or an item of Minecraft merchandise.


4   Want to try a competitive new sport? Try ESport.  It’s now cool to be a clever computer geek.


5   It’s all about the screen and sound experience

6   Breathe easy in your own home with the Dyson dehumidifier (we also thought that these could be used in more communal public settings…)


7   The relationship between children and technology is getting closer – from a younger age



8   LED technology is here to grow in popularity – wirelessly

9   We will have electric cars by the end of 2015.


10   Relax in this hyper-cosmopolitan global economy in style


11   And make sure your hand held device does too
