CES 2023: here are the news that will prevail

After scouring the world’s largest tech show for the most innovative products, we compiled a list of the best products from CES 2023 last week. We’ve highlighted six products that are innovative, unique, and have the potential to stand out. more positive impact. Here they are.

Wireless TV, from Displace

Televisions have been the centerpiece of entertainment for decades, and their manufacturers have set up the largest booths there. It was therefore extremely unlikely that a six-person start-up could enter and outpace the largest companies at the fair. Yet that’s exactly what Displace did, unveiling the world’s first wireless TV at CES 2023.

The TV is surprisingly light and runs on hot-swappable batteries that last about a month. Connects wirelessly to a base station to receive content. Also new: the TV can easily be moved to different parts of the house. It can stick to almost any surface, without support, thanks to the suction technology. The device also does not use a remote control, it is controlled by gestures and a smartphone application.

Displace wants to improve the TV experience and has big ambitions in this regard. Its 55-inch TV will go on sale later this year for $2,999.

The connected ring Evie, by Movano

Movano is creating the first wearable fitness tracker that will be certified by the FDA as a medical device, to raise the level of accuracy and reliability of wearables. This is because most current fitness trackers aren’t actually very accurate. And they usually don’t need to be. But Movano’s idea to bring medical-grade fitness trackers to market is significant.

For the first product it is bringing to market, Movano is also addressing another problem with current fitness trackers: they are almost all designed for men first and then adapted to the needs of women. Movano turns the script on its head with its Evie ring, making this product primarily for women and optimized for women’s health.

Evie will be released in mid-2023. Men’s fitness trackers will follow.

HTC Vive XR by Elite

The ZDNET team also went to CES 2023 to see if anyone could interest us in the metaverse. And HTC has kept its word, unveiling arguably the most impressive XR headset we’ve ever seen and reiterating its promise to work on an open ecosystem that will make the metaverse a 3D version of the internet powered by artificial intelligence. It would make for a far better metaverse than anything we’ve seen so far.

The HTC Vive XR Elite headset is light and comfortable, offers high-end imaging, and is relatively modestly priced ($1,999) for a high-end headset. The headset can stream content from phones, PCs and online VR platforms. HTC says it is working with all players in the virtual reality (VR) industry who want to create an open, cross-platform metaverse, like the open Internet.

At CES 2023, Neal Stephenson, the author of the novel The virtual samurai, has joined HTC in calling for the open metaverse. As a reminder, the author has contributed in his novel to create a vision of the metaverse. He is also known to have supported an open metaverse. His startup Lamina1, based on blockchain technology, is becoming a key player in the open metaverse debate.

If you want to start jumping into the metaverse, including creating your own avatar, you can head over to viverse.com, with or without a headset.

ThinkBook wireless docking station from Lenovo

Among Lenovo’s many announcements of new laptops and desktops — and even a smartphone — is the Lenovo ThinkBook Wireless Dock.

The docking station allows the laptop to wirelessly connect to two 4K monitors at 60Hz. The accessory also comes with a wireless charging pad. The latter works with one Lenovo laptop model for now, but could be integrated into future models in the future.

The accessory is powered by technology from Synaptics. It’s also built into a wireless docking station from Targus, which will work with laptops from other brands.

In summary, this technology could change the lives of increasingly mobile professionals, who work between their office, home and various meeting rooms. It would allow them to more easily connect to any large screen, much more efficiently and flexibly than current USB-C connection solutions. Let’s hope the technology expands in the years to come.

The Flex Hybrid, from Samsung Display

The interest in foldable smartphones peaked in 2019. After that date, most of the phone manufacturers therefore put their foldable devices aside. But not Samsung, which continues to release new foldable models every year. At CES 2023, its component manufacturing arm, Samsung Display, showcased its latest concepts for the future of smartphones. There is a number of different models that bend, curve and extend.

Among these prototypes, the most ambitious is the Flex Hybrid, which opens like a book. Just like today’s Galaxy Fold 4, except it can then deploy a hidden screen extension, to provide even more screen real estate. So really switch from a smartphone to a tablet.

It’s unclear how usable this concept will be, but its ability to fold and expand at the same time is impressive. It gives a palpable vision of a future where our smartphones, while fitting in our pockets, could expand to provide us with larger surfaces and better experiences.

FluentPet Connect, by FluentPet

Internet stars of recent years include Bunny, nicknamed by New York Times “TikTok’s talking dog”. This shepherd dog has in fact learned to communicate with his master using a sound box to type more than 90 words. Viral videos of him have allowed him to garner more than 8 million subscribers on his TikTok account.

The soundbox used by Bunny is made by a company called FluentPet. And at CES 2023, this company announced FluentPet Connect.

The device not only allows you to hear the sound your pet makes when he presses a specific button, but also receives an alert on your phone when he presses one of the buttons. So, if you’re not around him right now, you can tell that he wants to communicate with you. For example, they may want to let you know that the postman just stopped by… or that someone they don’t know is at the door.
