Top 5 Technologies Getting Big Buzz at CES
CES – Consumer Electronics Show is well underway in sunny Las Vegas. Here are the areas that are getting the most buzz.
1. Space Industries
Who knew how fast space exploration technology would grow in 10 years?
By revolutionizing the space industry, the door is opening widely for the development of new tools, technologies, resources, and devices. In time, all of these things can benefit the consumer market as well. It’s also just exciting to consider the possibilities of exploring space.
2. Brace yourself for the upcoming Metaverse
Virtual reality has been around for a while now, but it’s still one of the most futuristic technologies available today. It’s come a long way in the past several years, and it’s clear that it’s just warming up.
That seems to be truer than ever with Facebook doubling down on VR and rebranding as Meta. The recently announced Metaverse will bring a slew of new VR content aimed at connecting users in a deeper and more immersive way.
3. Expect more focus on sustainability in tech
With climate change comes the need to rethink the way we handle the use of resources along with how we dispose of them. This is rapidly becoming a frequent focus in consumer markets, too. While it might not seem like a futuristic technology on the surface, that couldn’t be farther from the truth.
Sustainable tech is continuing to improve and expand in areas of usefulness, durability, practicality, and cost. Not unlike the revitalized space industry, sustainable technologies have a unified and motivated driving force behind them. With new research and development comes new innovation we didn’t think possible 10 years ago.
4. Check out NFTs if you’re into crypto investing
Are you into crypto markets and investing? Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) may very well make an appearance at CES this year. They are a type of blockchain-centered digital collectible where you can purchase original rights and copies similarly to fine art in real life.
These one-of-a-kind digital assets can gain value over time. Regardless of whether or not it sounds crazy, this futuristic emerging technology is catching on like wildfire and making waves in crypto markets.
5. Look for rollables and foldables this time around
We expect to see another new technology ascend to the next level in 2022. Rollable and foldable devices or screens are likely here to stay and, if so, will only get better. After all, Samsung continues to improve on its folding screen technology, and now other companies are looking to dip their toes into developing it as well.
While it might seem gimmicky now, it really won’t be in the long run. The potential for devices that can maximize function when needed and minimize their size profile when not is the kind of technology futurists dream of. Hopefully, we’ll see some new ideas and implementations this time around.
