From 5 to 8 January, Las Vegas is home to the world's largest consumer electronics show. Here is everything you need to know. The future of technology is staged in Las Vegas. Thursday, January 5 will start the world's largest consumer electronics fair - the Consumer Electronics Show, which year after year showcase state of the art hi-tech world.

Often the products presented by over 3,800 exhibitors remains a concept, but in some cases, such as the recent wearable technology or video game console, what is shown at the fair becomes a true object of worship. This year, smarthomes and unmanned cars will be the true partners of the stage of the CES as also 4K television to HDR technologies.


The automotive front will be one of the most popular with a line up of companies present that virtually enclose the entire market. The highlight will be the preview of unmanned car produced by Fiat Chrysler and Google (indeed, Waymo), which will be presented along with a new electric car and then there will be room especially for the new Hyundai and Honda Ioniq Neuv.

But above all it will be time to make more smart cars with the new safety systems. Continental will introduce biometrics in the vehicle with a double identification system that operates through key and a fingerprint sensor and increased use of artificial intelligence that helps you better keep an eye on our car. An example of all that will be by BMW, who will present the HoloActive Touch system, the control system based on gesture recognition. The vast majority of vehicles will be equipped with internet connection, so as to save on cloud any information necessary for the driver such as tire pressure, oil level and so on.

Internet of Things

Apple made it even easier to interact with smart appliances, which thus are becoming increasingly sophisticated. LG introduced deep learning in their equipment, in such a way as to further simplify the work as the washing machines regulates the temperature and the amount of water used depending on its hardness to counteract damaging effects on the clothes to be washed.

The fridge will analyze the dietary pattern of the family to predict some activities such as automatic filling of the ice tray on the day when cold drinks are all the rage, or, in summer, the start of the sterilization system to extend food life when the refrigerator detects that the temperature and humidity conditions may contribute to the deterioration of the food.

Then there will be new connected thermostats, increasingly intelligent bulbs and lower energy consumption and security cameras that will recognize your face, alerting other smart home devices. Not only that, Samsung has plans to connect all its devices in 2020.


The models in 2017 must not preclude the compatibility with 4K and the HDR. The next stage of development will be the 8K monitor, of which we will see the first prototypes and OLED technology, produced almost only by LG. The Korean company will show its new products, but the biggest blow could come from Sony, which, according to rumors, could present the first OLED TV. Then there will be Samsung that will continue to move within the curved screens and Panasonic will take to Las Vegas the latest version of Ambilight technology.


The 2017 could be the year in which wireless technology definitely puts aside the cables. Much of the credit goes to Apple that eliminated the audio jack for headphones from the iPhone 7, sparking the producers in a race to the bluetooth and wireless headsets. Samsung has already shown the IconX. LG will present the Free Tone, while Jabra will introduce Elite Sport.

Unlike the speech between headphones and speakers where the wireless commanded the market for some time, here LG has decided to push hard introducing the PJ9, the first speaker levitating from the Korean company. We'll see if this idea will be absorbed by other manufacturers.

Virtual reality

After a 2016 full of ads by Oculus, HTC, Sony and so on, this year the producers have nothing in mind for big shake up in the market. Microsoft plans to launch the Windows Creators Update in April to bring the 3D computer, opening the platform to newer cheaper devices that they should make their debut on the Las Vegas stage. Then the Project Intel Alloy will combine VR and augmented reality and many, many accessories to make the most complete virtual experience, as the latest version of the treadmill Virtuix Omni to move around in the environment in 3D.


The goal is to reach DJI, the real undisputed queen, who will announce the news of the professional video shoots. But there is room to see stabilized drones to fly indoors, for speed races and especially divers. Xiaomi will point to lower prices with Yi Erida, while Intel still develop its Aero line.


Future is convertible and 2-in-1, which we will see new prototypes that will try to anticipate the models of tomorrow with more compact design and more powerful graphics cards ready for virtual reality. Dell XPS 13 will show the new 2-in-1, but they will also be news from HP, Lenovo, Toshiba and Asus. Intel and Nvidia will unveil a new family of microprocessors.

Smartphones, cameras and wearables

For phones there will be news only for the mid-market with announcements by Samsung (new smartphone line A), LG (with K series), Honor and Sony. For all the other competitors, the same is postponed for the Mobile World Congress to be held in February. Among the only big news, cameras could be the presentation of the Panasonic GH5 - 4K video at 60fps, and photos in 6K, while the rest of the competition has already given everything during the Photokina in September, one of the most important events in the world which is held every two years in Cologne.

The wearable world has suffered a sharp slowdown in 2016 with the flop of smartwatches and the continuous postponement of the new version of Android Wear. At CES, there will be many bracelets crammed with sensors, but there is a feeling that the market is about to announce a must have for 2017.
