Television has been the focal point of the show for decades, and their creators put up the biggest stands there. It was therefore extremely unlikely that a start-up of six people could enter and surpass the largest companies at the fair. Yet that’s exactly what Displace did when it unveiled 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. It connects wirelessly to a base station to receive content. Another innovation: the television can be easily moved to different places in the house. It can be attached to almost any surface without support thanks to 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 television experience, and has big ambitions in this regard. Its 55-inch TV goes on sale later this year for $2,999.

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

For the first product it’s bringing to market, Movano is also tackling another problem with current fitness trackers: They’re almost all designed for men first, then adapted to women’s needs. Movano flips the script with its Evie ring, making this product primarily for women and optimized for women’s health.

Evie will be released in mid-2023. Fitness trackers for men follow.

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

The HTC Vive XR Elite headset is lightweight and comfortable, offers advanced graphics, 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 claims to work with all players in the virtual reality (VR) industry who want to create an open and 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 contributed in his novel to create a vision of the metaverse. He is also known for championing an open metaverse. His start-up Lamina1, based on blockchain technology, is becoming a key player in the open metaverse debate.

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

The docking station allows your laptop to connect wirelessly to two 4K displays at 60 Hz. The accessory also comes with a wireless charging pad. The latter works with one model of Lenovo laptop at the moment, but it may be integrated into future models in the future.

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

In summary, this technology can change the lives of increasingly mobile professionals who work between their office, their home and the various meeting rooms. It would allow them to more easily connect to any large screen, much more efficiently and flexibly than current USB-C connectivity solutions. We hope that the technology will expand in the coming years.

Interest in foldable smartphones peaked in 2019. After that date, most phone manufacturers therefore put their foldable devices on the sidelines. But not Samsung, which continues to release new foldable models every year. At CES 2023, its component manufacturing arm, Samsung Display, showed off its latest concepts for future smartphones. There are a set of different models that bend, arch and extend.

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

It’s unclear how useful this concept will be, but its ability to fold and expand at the same time is impressive. It offers a tangible vision of a future where our smartphones, while still fitting in our pockets, could expand to give us bigger surfaces and better experiences.

Internet stars of recent years include Bunny, nicknamed by New York Times “TikTok’s Talking Female Dog”. This sheepadoodle dog has actually learned to communicate with his master by using a voice box to write more than 90 words. His viral videos have allowed him to amass more than 8 million subscribers on his TikTok account.

The sound box that Bunny uses is made by a company called FluentPet. And at CES 2023, this company announced the FluentPet Connect.

The device not only allows you to hear the sound of your pet when he presses a certain button, but also receives an alert on your phone when he presses one of the buttons. So if you are not near him at that time, you can tell that he will communicate with you. It could be, for example, that he wants to tell you that the postman has just passed by… or that someone he doesn’t know is standing at the door.
