CES 2018 is fast approaching and with less than a month to go until the doors open in Las Vegas, excitement is mounting along with tech predictions for 2018. From TV tech to robotics and VR to self-driving cars, we’ve gathered a sampling of the technologies that will be prominently displayed on the show floor.
Big players like Google, Samsung and LG are expected to make some big announcements. Rumor has it that there may be MicroLED technology embedded in Samsung TVs that will allow for greater pixel density. There may even be a 150-inch TV.
VR tech is expected to be in the spotlight again at CES. New headset technology that doesn’t require a smartphone is predicted, as well as new apps, experiences and games all around the show.
The trend of unveiling even smarter self-driving car technology will also be center stage at CES. Automakers are expected to showcase deeper integration of digital assistant technology into vehicles.
Intelligent robots like Kuri, (which was launched at CES last year), will be featured in the Robotics Marketplace. Personal assistant robots, as well as medical robots, are expected to be prevalent at the show, with the hopes of making it to the mainstream to improve our day-to-day lives.
A new addition to CES this year is CES Sports Zone, featuring technology that can help athletes boost their performance with innovations that will excite sports fans. This new focus area demonstrates an important area of growth for technology and performance, and will likely shine light on the ever-expanding wearable market.
