As evidenced by mainstream media, CES 2011 was certainly the year of tablets and 3D televisions, and of course the iPad. Although Apple was not present at the show, it’s safe to say you couldn’t walk a few feet without seeing an iPad case or accessories on display.

With senior citizens secured as the fastest growing population, it’s no surprise that electronics manufacturers have placed heavier emphasis on targeting the elderly. POM Devices introduced a network of sensors to detect fluctuations in elderly routines and notify caregivers of change via SMS. TabSafe Medical Services introduced a medication management system, for audio, visual and text medication reminders.

And for the young at heart, Lady Gaga, Creative Director of Polaroid, introduced a pair of sunglasses that allow for photo and video to be taken and then displayed on the lenses.
