Officially unveiled at Casio’s CES press conference, the WSD-F10 is the company’s first official entry into the smart watch category, and features a dual-layered LCD comprised of a color and monochrome touch display. The new watch utilizes the Android Wear platform and comes equipped with a wide range of useful apps and features that are perfect for a tech-savvy outdoor enthusiast.

They can also tap into apps such as email alert, weather, maps, voice search and more to help them stay connected while navigating the outdoors.

Electronic Musical Instruments
Casio’s newest digital pianos, the award-winning CELVIANO Grand Hybrid GP-500BP and GP-300, are the perfect combination of innovation and tradition. Named a CES 2016 Innovation Award Honoree for its groundbreaking design and engineering in cutting edge technology, Casio’s CELVIANO Grand Hybrid truly delivers an experience like that of a grand piano. The GP-500BP and GP-300 are equipped with Casio’s new AiR Grand Sound Source, which recreates every sound and aspect of an acoustic piano, including sympathetic string resonance, damper resonance and key-off response.

LampFree® Projectors
This year, Casio expanded its EcoLiteTM series of LampFree® projectors with the XJ-V2, which offers all of the functions of its predecessor, the XJ-V1, but for an attractive base price lower than before. Casio’s SSI light source - which uses both a laser and a LED - in the XJ-V2 has a lifespan of up to 20,000 hours, eliminating the need for lamp replacements, and offering electricity consumption that is approximately half that of a mercury lamp projector. Additionally, the XJ-V2 reaches its maximum brightness of 3000 lumens in as little as five seconds from the time the power is switched on. The projector can immediately be turned off and then used again right away when powered back on without the need for a cool-down period.
