Technology Conference – level 1

13-01-2020 15:00

There is a big technology conference in Las Vegas. More than 100,000 people and 4,500 sellers meet here. They introduce the latest products and ideas in consumer electronics.

However, a lot of business happens here, too. Companies that sell household products want to know what their customers want.

Technology innovators start to connect more household products together in the virtual world. They believe that it is a good idea with many good parts.

The problem is that nobody knows who can see the information about these products. It can be the police, or an insurance company, or somebody else. It is difficult to imagine how they can use this information in the future.

Difficult words: consumer (a person who consumes or buys and uses things), household (a group of people who live together in one place), innovator (a person who comes with new methods, ideas or products), insurance company (a company which gives money after a damage or injury).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
