Wireless headphones are very popular among consumers. Particularly popular are the so-called true wireless headphones, which can be worn by absolutely no cables. At this year's CES, the award was presented to the 1MORE ANC True Wireless Pro wireless headphones, which also offer an active noise cancellation function and high-quality sound. If you prefer listening to music through speakers, you will definitely be interested in the truly luxurious Quantum massage chair, which was created in collaboration with Bang & Olufsen and Boyfriend. Using artificial intelligence, this massage chair can provide its owner with a perfect massage, which can be enriched by listening to music from the built-in Bang & Olufsen stereo speakers. Home entertainment technology was also present at this year's CES trade fair. The XGIMI 4K 3D LED projector offers high-quality projection, and the built-in pair of 8W Harman Kardon speakers also ensures very good sound. In addition, the projector boasts an elegant design and compact dimensions, making it really suitable for any living room. A really interesting piece of consumer electronics was the WOWCube System cube. It is an innovative interactive game platform, which has the form and partly also the features of the famous Rubik's cube. You can port games downloaded via the appropriate application on the iPhone to this "console", or even program your own games into it. It was really hard to choose from the huge number of TVs that appeared at this year's CES. However, the LG 4K OLED TV 65G1 with a 65-inch screen, ultra-slim design and high picture quality was among the winners. Everyone certainly knows the traveling magnetic versions of popular board games. Tacto is an add-on that can turn any tablet into an interactive universal foundation for this type of game. The package includes figures and other accessories, so far there are five game sets on offer, from traditional board games through chess and games with lasers or dinosaurs to a game that will teach children and adults the basics of programming.
