Regarded as the pinnacle of consumer technology, CES stands as the foremost influential tech event globally. It acts as a test bed for innovations in technology that signify a radical change in the sector. Here is where businesses transact, network with possible partners, and present their most ground-breaking goods and ideas to the industry’s sharpest minds.

Technology enthusiasts, business leaders, and inquisitive minds from across the globe convene at the eagerly awaited Consumer Electronics Show (CES) each year to witness the newest and most innovative developments in consumer technology as the year rolls in. 

A surge in in-person attendance helped CES 2024 surpass its 2023 edition, attracting 130,000 visitors and showcasing new products from 311 Fortune 500 businesses. The era in which technology pervades every part of our lives was clearly depicted at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2024, held in Las Vegas from January 9 to January 12, 2024. 

AI was a common motif in everything from refrigerators to televisions and mobile devices. But there was more to CES 2024 than simply an AI exhibition. A compilation of some of the most innovative devices revealed during CES:

  • LG’s Transparent OLED TV

Prototypes of transparent displays have long been seen on the CES exhibit floor. Since its debut at CES 2024, the LG Signature Series T OLED TV has captivated viewers with its ultramodern technology and innovative design. It is the world’s first wireless, transparent OLED TV. Admittedly, a transparent TV may not be the most useful item. When the purpose of the TV is to be watched, why would you want a see-through model? But LG’s ingenuity steps in at that point. When the contrast filter is removed, the LG Signature OLED T, a standard OLED TV despite its premium price tag, enters a transparent mode. This implies that the display disappears into the backdrop while you’re not looking at it. The company’s wireless technology for audio-visual transmission is also featured in this model. 

Additionally, Samsung unveiled its transparent LCD, transparent MicroLED, and transparent OLED TVs. Out of the trio, the MicroLED genuinely merited the designation of “transparent,” not because of its display panel but rather due to its design, which does away with the surrounding frame. The Samsung MicroLED TV’s one-centimetre thin and excellent pixel density make it an appealing option when compared to LG’s. However, the latter’s product is expected to be on the market in 2024 and is far less expensive.

  • Acer’s Predator Z57

One of the few new Mini-LED displays at CES 2024 was Acer’s Predator Z57, although it’s big enough to count for two or even three. The new gaming monitor’s massive 57-inch curved mini-LED display, which has local dimming for deeper and darker black levels, makes it excellent for immersive gaming. Basically, it’s just two 4K displays positioned next to each other. It has a peak brightness of 1,000 nits, a 1000R curvature, and a 7680 x 2160 4K resolution with up to 120Hz for fluid motion and action during gaming. With the Mini-LED backlight, there are 2,304 dimming zones in total. That is a lot higher than the majority of Mini-LED displays on the market. The monitor has AMD’s FreeSync Premium to lessen screen tearing and distortion, in addition to two 10-watt speakers for music. For PC platforms, Xbox Series X, or PlayStation 5, it works perfectly.

With a starting price of $2,499.99, Acer plans to release it to the market sometime in the first half of 2024.

  • The Rabbit R1

The goal of the recently released Rabbit R1 is to improve the effectiveness of smartphone interactions between people. With a SIM card slot, 2.88-inch display, 2.3GHz MediaTek Helios P35 CPU, 128 GB of storage, 4 GB of RAM, and compatibility with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, this $200 gadget is distinct in design. 

It’s challenging to define or describe what the Rabbit R1 is or does. It’s not just a voice assistant like Alexa, nor is it a smartphone. The device employs a unique method based on a huge action model specifically created to perform things like a human would. The tedious tasks of pulling out your smartphone, unlocking it, locating the app you want, opening it, entering the required data, and getting the outcome are no longer relevant. It receives input from the user and communicates with apps to carry out tasks by using the smartphone’s camera and microphone.

  • Xreal Air 2 Ultra

Despite Apple’s announcement that the Vision Pro will be available next month, the headset remains incredibly costly at $3,500. Meanwhile, XREAL created a stir at CES 2024 with the introduction of their Air 2 Ultra AR sunglasses. They include a broad 52-degree field of vision, high-resolution Sony Micro OLED screens, and innovative capabilities like accurate 6DoF tracking, all for $699.

With its 6 degrees of freedom (DoF) tracking, hand and head tracking, and other characteristics, AR objects and pictures will remain in position and accessible even while you’re moving about a room. To function, though, it requires a strong, modern smartphone, such as the Apple iPhone 15, Google Pixel 8 Pro, or Samsung Galaxy S23.

  • RoboRock S8 MaxV Ultra

The Roborock S8 MaxV Ultra Robot Vacuum is a hybrid vacuum that uses a strong 10,000Pa suction pressure to remove dirt, dust and grime from carpets, rugs and hardwood floors. It also uses twin sonic vibration scrubbers to clean kitchen and bathroom tiles.

The multipurpose charging port of the smart home Robovac is self-emptying, storing trash for up to seven weeks, and has a self-filling water tank for mopping and a self-cleaning reservoir for self-maintenance. Larger rooms and houses are ideal for the Roborock S8 MaxV Ultra Robot Vacuum. With an anticipated delivery date of sometime in the spring of 2024, Roborock has set the price at $1,800.

  • Razer Lexus TX

This year’s CES event included one of the craziest automobiles ever seen, hidden and parked outside. The product of a collaboration between Razer and Lexus, the Razer Lexus TX showcases what happens when serious gaming ambitions and sophistication are combined for on-the-go gaming.

It is, in essence, a mobile LAN party. Razer outfitted this 2024 Lexus TX with four widescreen gaming displays, a workstation and keyboard in one of the backseats, and gamer chairs in the rear rows. Additionally, there are a number of RGB lights on the outside that have color-changing capabilities. It resembles an SUV-sized gaming laptop in both design and size. The Xbox Series X and a docking station for four Razer gaming laptops are visible when you open the trunk. 

While it’s a concept automobile, and doubtful that you’ll be able to purchase one for yourself, gamers may still dream of owning what sounds like the most fun they’ve ever had in a car.

  • The Clicks Keyboard

One of the most controversial iPhone covers ever made is probably Clicks. An iPhone cover featuring a built-in keyboard on the bottom has been announced by Clicks Technology, a recently established firm. There is a real keyboard fastened to the bottom of the silicone enclosure. A passthrough connector is located at the bottom, there are little bumps to allow buttons and switches, and there is a tiny vegan leather accent on the rear. Clicks take their power straight from the phone and do not need Bluetooth or a battery. Clicks will be available for the iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max at launch, with prices beginning at $139. One could very well argue that the launch of this product would represent a full-circle moment in the tech industry.

  • Asus Zenbook Duo

Asus debuted a wide range of new Windows 11 PCs at CES 2024, including the Zenbook DUO, the Vivobook S series, the AMD and Intel variants of the Zenbook 14 OLED, and the Zephyrus G16 for gamers. 

The Zenbook DUO is distinguished by its screen real estate. When fully extended, it can quickly create a visual workplace up to 19.8 inches, connecting three 3K 120 Hz ASUS Lumina OLED 16:10 monitors together with a 180-degree lay-flat hinge. It may be used as a laptop, dual screen, desktop, or shared in both vertical and horizontal modes thanks to the inbuilt kickstand and removable keyboard. 

Although Asus has not yet revealed the price and availability, it is anticipated to launch in early 2024 at a starting price of about $1,400.

  • Evie Ring

Women’s health tracking is redefined with the release of the Evie ring at CES 2024. Beyond the essentials, this smart ring provides data concerning mood, menstruation health, and various other topics. It connects health variables for individualized wellness insights using AI-powered trend analysis. 

Being one of the few wearables created primarily for women, the Evie Ring’s design makes it very evident. It is fashionable, cozy, and comes in three colours. It is an FDA-approved gadget that guarantees reliability and accuracy. It’s a game-changer for women looking for comprehensive and tailored health tracking, priced at $269 with no monthly costs.

Conclusion

The Consumer Electronics Show 2024 showcased the industry’s commitment to carefully pushing technological boundaries while also providing a glimpse into the future. The next phase of our connected world will be influenced by a number of innovative technologies on show at CES 2024, including the confluence of AI and 5G and breakthroughs in sustainability. As consumers, we are eager to see how new technologies can advance both our quality of life and global conditions.
