07 Jan CES 2024 GUIDE: A YEAR OF AI, AUTOMATION AND SMART TECHNOLOGY
The annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is set to kick off in Las Vegas shortly, giving us a glimpse into the latest tech trends and innovations for the coming year. As the world continues recovering from recent challenging years, keep in mind as follows. CES 2024 looks primed to be filled with themes of health, connectivity, convenience, and optimism for the future.
A major theme expected at the trade show is a focus on products and services for health, wellness and better living. From wearables that monitor various biometrics 24/7, to food and hydration trackers, air quality sensors and purifiers for the home, and next-gen fitness equipment like immersive VR treadmills, exhibitors will showcase tech that helps consumers take control of their health. What’s more, mental health looks to take more of a front seat, with gadgets for stress relief, meditation and sleep management predicted to be big at the show.
Connectivity and convenience will also likely be hot topics, as 5G networks continued rolling out globally in 2023, paving the way for more smart home devices, appliances and assistant-enabled electronics that can be controlled remotely via mobile apps and voice commands. From smart doorbells and locks, washer/dryers, and vacuum cleaners to whole home monitoring systems, expect CES 2024 to emphasize products that add convenience, automation and security to daily routines.
Sustainability is another key area that should be front and center at CES 2024, as consumers become more focused on their own carbon footprints. Goods made from recycled materials, energy efficient electronics and solar-powered gadgets could feature prominently at the show. This also extends to smart products to monitor home utilities and usage for improved conservation efforts.
And reflecting recent difficult years, CES 2024 should champion general optimism, wonder and fun as well. Extra imaginative concept products could remind audiences that technology indeed has remarkable potential to make lives safer, healthier and more fulfilling. Show Stopper pavilions and displays could emphasize the pure excitement tech can bring despite recent tribulations felt worldwide.
As the iconic launch pad for global consumer tech each year, especially AI and automation, the event aims to set the tone for the 12 months ahead. Attendees and exhibitors will set their sights on the promise of a brighter tomorrow, ushering in 2024 with cutting edge health tools, convenient connectivity, responsible products and unbridled optimism.
