CES 2023: the most anticipated announcements at the fair of new technologies

Numerama is in Las Vegas for CES 2023, the largest annual event dedicated to high technology. If CES is above all a presentation venue for big brands and a way for startups to gain exposure, it’s also a great trend indicator.

Who will be the big winner? CES 2023 ? of metaverse, the connected home, artificial intelligence or augmented reality? A few hours before the official opening of the biggest spectacle dedicated to new technologies on the planet, no one knows yet whether a subject will manage to be declared the trendiest in 2023, or whether this edition will fail to impress .

After several years of Covid-19, CES should return to its glory on January 5, 2023, even if some manufacturers organize events on the 3rd and 4th. Throughout the duration of the show, Numerama will be in Las Vegas to make you experience the living room as you were there. Our goal is to identify trends, decipher them and introduce you to the fun little innovations that we’re not used to seeing elsewhere. Our colleagues from Fandroidalso on site, it will also tell you about new products announced.

The connected home, our favorite for 2023

At the end of CES 2023, Numerama will provide you with a recap of the Las Vegas show (apparently two, one for the successes, one for the failures). Meanwhile, it is now possible to make initial predictions for the year’s announcements. Some words are on everyone’s lips, but all will probably not succeed in making everyone agree.

  • The connected house looks like we’re on track to win it all at CES 2023. Why? BECAUSE release of the Matter standard in late 2022 has the potential to revolutionize everything in this sector known for its complexity. Home automation, a niche topic a few months ago, is now universal. Any device can control any object, which opens the door to many scenarios. Our guess is that multiple Matter objects will be announced at CES, from brands big and small.
  • Virtual, mixed and augmented reality may be the focus of discussion at CES while the entire industry waits the arrival of Apple in the coming months. If Meta has already announced its headset, the Quest Pro (our test is coming to Numerama), we know that brands like HTC are preparing to unveil mixed reality products. It remains to be seen whether VR will remain an epiphenomenon in 2023, or whether it will truly be everywhere this year.
  • artificial intelligence caused a lot of talk at the end of 2022 thanks ChatGPT, the impressive OpenAI chatbot. Many analysts claim that AI will explode in 2023 thanks to many releases. Will CES reveal this phenomenon? It is possible, even if it is not always easy to show AI.
  • Impossible innovations are also expected, as every year at CES. More screens able to fold and rotate or really weird health sensors (more on that later), one of the attractions at CES 2023 will be Displace, a brand that claims to have invented a wireless TV.
  • The Metaverse it’s also on everyone’s lips. After a very strong start in 2022, will the virtual world that some dream of still be of interest in 2023?

CES, the show for anything and everything

Finally, beyond the trends, Numerama will also present all the surprises that it will encounter in the corridors of the show. CES is famous for its entertainment gadgets, why not? Undoubtedly, the screens will also be in the center of attention. For several years now, CES has become the place where major brands announce their new TVs. We should also come across some automotive innovations.

From Las Vegas and Paris, Numerama will bring you some articles and some videos at CES 2023. We also give you a social media appointment (I tweet, instagram, TIK Tok AND Facebook) to discover the corridors of the live show and ask us questions.
