Apple’s design influence evident at CES

In every product category from 3-D printers to biosensors, exuberant organic forms have been replaced with hard-edged alternatives.

While Apple doesn’t exhibit at CES, they appear to be responsible for this trend. Since the original iMac, they’ve slowly transitioned their products from approachable plastic to cool metal and glass, with each generation becoming less curvy and colorful.

Apple doesn’t need to be at CES to still exert a strong influence there.
