CES 2022 – the tech world window from 5 to 7 February 2022, Las Vegas and online

Despite significant exhibitor dropouts due to COVID-19, CES 2022 (Consumer Electronics Show), Las Vegas will proceed with more than 2200 exhibitors in a digital-only or hybrid physical/digital exhibition format.

By that, we mean in person for those willing to risk the pandemic and digital for those who do not. And no wonder – USA daily cases nearly topped 600,000 on 31 December and show little promise of a slowdown due to Xmas and New Year celebrations.

In any case, CES 2022 is the window to the tech world

It portends the new lifestyle/tech we should see in 2022 and beyond. Note that we may or may not see all the product announcements – Australia is a very small market.

The Australian Exhibitor list is small:

  • Nuheara with its multi-award-winning IQbuds2 MAX continues to improve the lives of tens of thousands of people across the globe
  • Spacetalk with its Adventurer 4G mobile phone, GPS tracker, an all-in-one wearable device for kids
  • Vitruvian, with its connected-strength trainer delivering up to 200kg of digital weight via adaptive algorithmic technology. Paired with the Vitruvian app, the experience offers world-class trainers, 200+ exercises and full workout data history. The compact Trainer+ wheels away under a bed/couch when not in use.
  • Xailent incredibly accurate AI on impossibly small devices. Running at low power, Xailient’s AI unlocks new previously unattainable, cost-effective, embedded-edge CV applications.

* last minute opt-out of the physical show – digital-only and includes Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Meta, IBM HP, Dell, Acer and more.

One of the tragedies of CES 2022 is that we won’t be able to walk the floor to bring you the unusual, exciting and unique tech that shapes our future.

The next major exhibition is Mobile World Congress 28 February – 03 March 2022 in Barcelona. We hope it is not similarly affected but with low vaccination rates it may be scaled back.
