Gaming and eSports

Gaming is one of the largest topics at every CES, and this year is no different. New 240Hz OLED gaming displays from Asus, LG and Corsair will be showcased alongside Nvidia’s big unveiling of a new batch of RTX 40 series GPUs for laptops, including the RTX 4090, 4080 and 4070.

The Metaverse and Web3

The expansion of the metaverse and prospective of a utopian ‘Web3’ is a topic many have been keeping an eye on over the last couple of years. The idea of an all-encompassing 3D virtual space in which blockchain-based finance and VR are used in novel and connecting ways is exciting, but has not seen a great deal of wide-ranging public usage since Mark Zuckerberg announced his vision for the Metaverse a while back. However, there are some major advancements being made in the field which will be showcased at a range of exhibitors and talks across the CES weekend.

At this year’s CES, there will be a dedicated Web3 Studio in the LVCC, Central Hall. Influential speakers will discuss the most important developments, including Joe O’Rourke, Head of the Web3 Strategy Forum3, and there will be specialist exhibitors like eXchangily displaying some of their latest tech.

Digital health

Tying into the overarching theme of how innovation can help to solve pressing global problems, the topic of digital health is an important topic at this year’s CES. Some of the best minds in the industry will be speaking, and exhibitions from companies like Abbott and CareSix promise to spark some exciting and useful conversations about how users might be able to start taking healthcare into their own hands.

Expect discussion-prompting presentations and events ranging from AI, Digital Health and the Future of Patient Care (January 6, 9:00 AM – 9:40 AM at LVCC, North Level 2, N250) to The Future of At-Home Testing and Diagnosis (January 6, 2:00-2:40PM, at LVCC, North Level 2, N250).

Vehicle Tech and Advanced Mobility

The big reveal of Sony’s car might be high up on the priority list for many, but there’s plenty of other exciting things on the agenda when it comes to vehicle technology at this year’s CES. Cutting-edge autonomous vehicle innovations will be showcased at events like the talk on Autonomous Vehicles and Their Global Expansion (January 6, 2:00-2:40PM at LVCC, West Level 2, W219). Don’t miss the Indy Autonomous Challenge (IAC) at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Saturday January 7 – nine university teams will be competing with fully automated vehicles operating at more than 190mph.

Home entertainment and Streaming

TV brands usually dominate exhibition space at the CES, displaying the latest, biggest and brightest screens for attendees to gawk at. From new miniLED and a possible 77 inch QD-OLED TV from Samsung to a probable host of new LG and Sony OLED screens, there’s bound to be lots of exciting announcements in store. A lot of the major TV brands (Sony, Samsung, LG) will be streaming their keynote talks, so check out our guide here to find out where to see them.

Smart Home

From Smart Fridges to $11,500 Smart Toilets, it seems there’s an uptick in effort from companies to create a buzz around the ‘smart home’ idea, despite the fact that for most people, the tech is still pretty limited to Alexa turning on music and lights. However, new ways of looking at the idea will be presented at this year’s CES, from security to Omdia’s research summit on January 4th at 2:00-2:40PM.

There’s bound to be some interesting new ideas on display, so make sure to keep up to date with the latest news here at WePC if you don’t want to miss any crucial updates.

NFTs and Cryptocurrency

Love them or hate them, there was no way of avoiding news about NFTs last year, and although the buzz seems to have died down, there’s plenty of discussion about this topic you won’t want to miss out on at this year’s CES. Important work is being put into finding software solutions to make crypto a more secure and viable option for more people, and a lot of the discussions at the conference will center around the risks and problems with the existing tech – and how we can improve it.

Augmented and Virtual Reality

Arguably one of the most exciting areas in the tech world right now, VR is advancing at an incredible rate, and we’re expecting to see some big reveals from HTC, Meta and Sony, alongside smaller companies like Weezy VR and Seerslab.

There’ll be plenty of opportunities to try out some of the most cutting edge tech in the VR sector at the convention itself, but for those who weren’t lucky enough to get a ticket, we’d suggest tuning in to some of the streams available online. Sony’s will go live on January 4th at 5PM (PST) on YouTube – you can find the stream here.
