Consumer electronics show experiencing the future

Accelerated urbanization, changing demographics and environmental concerns are transforming the way we live, work, travel and consume.

We are living in a time of unprecedented change. Expectations and usages in areas ranging from mobility to healthcare to retail are quickly moving in new directions, towards greater flexibility and increased customization.

Dassault Systèmes was at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas from January 8-11, 2019 to present accelerated, disruptive projects through the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, and to show how virtual worlds enable people to enjoy personalized experiences every day. Cities of the future will have to adapt to the changing needs of their inhabitants by offering new mobility, consumer and life experiences, and new ways of interacting with their environment.

Visitors to Dassault Systèmes’ stands were given the opportunity to test a personal assistant and video projector, learn about customized footwear, fly in an air taxi in a virtual reality pod, and discover an electric two-wheeler designed for last-mile delivery service. Participants could also take part in an interactive experience based on the results of a forward-looking study that explored consumers’ expectations for healthcare, home mobility and consumer technology in 2030.

Each interaction generated a creative outcome that reconfigured city design in real time. Figures were also provided from Frost & Sullivan’s Experiencing City Life in 2030: Trends & Perspectives report, which built on the expertise and experience of Dassault Systèmes. Users selected a topic and answered a survey question how they foresee major trends in urban life. The impact of their response was then displayed in the virtual city, along with the responses from the study.

Also during CES, the 3DEXPERIENCE Lab presented the Startup Accelerator program at the Paris Region stand in Eureka Park, the space dedicated to startups, featuring three Lab participants: Gyrolift, ExactCure and Zero 2 Infinity.
