Are you tired of new gadgets and fancy future tech yet? We didn’t think so. The 2023 Consumer Electronics show is humming along in Las Vegas, and we have already seen some very interesting new developments on day one and day two. The show is starting to wind down now, but there will surely be lots of cool new stuff trickling out in the coming months. We’ve made a list a mile long of new products we’re looking forward to checking out and reviewing.
Today’s products include everything from a robotic pet to a super-fast electric motorcycle with a unique new type of motor. CES truly is a wonderful grab bag of cool new tech, and we’re suckers for all of it.
LG M3 OLED TV
Examine LG’s super-skinny 97-inch OLED TV and you won’t find any ports. Instead, the M3 keeps all of its HDMI and audio connectivity ports in an external box that can sit away from the TV and send a 120Hz 4K wireless signal to the TV itself. As a result, the TV can go just about anywhere without you having to worry about where its set-top boxes and speaker wires will end up.
LG has done some really cool stuff with OLEDs in the past, including the rolling TV that was the start of two consecutive CES gatherings a while back. But this development actually seems rather practical. Well, practical in the sense that it’ll make the second living room on your superyacht look a little less cluttered because this thing is going to be extremely expensive if it comes to market.
HTC Vive XR Elite mixed reality headset
Last year, Meta introduced its $1,500 Quest Pro headset, which relies on integrated cameras to mix images from the real world with digital objects on the displays in front of your eyeballs. It’s a cool device, but it’s also $1,500. At CES, however, HTC announced its upcoming Vive XR Elite mixed reality headset, which offers a similar suite of features for roughly $400 less ($1,099).
The Vive XR Elite has a pair of full-color cameras on the front that bring in real-world objects but also track a user’s hands for a more immersive MR experience. Despite the fancy features and powerful computing gear onboard, the headset is relatively compact and looks considerably less dorky than most of its competition. It’s still kinda dorky, but the bar is relatively low here.
Loona Pet Bot
Every year, adorable animal-like robots roam around the halls of CES. They’re mostly cute and a little creepy. The Loona Pet Bot fills all those roles. Originally launched on Kickstarter, this dog-like robot tries to replicate the experience of owning an actual pet. It will follow you around the house, play games with you, and convey emotion with sounds and expressions. It even runs to the door when you get home. This isn’t an entirely new concept—Sony’s aibo has been around forever—but this looks like an adorable and relatively advanced version. Plus, it won’t eventually get some terrible disease and soak up two months’ rent money at the emergency vet like all real pets seem to.
Gluxkind Ella AI baby stroller
Just about everything gets AI-powered upgrades at CES, and baby strollers are no exception. This $3,300 (!) carriage leverages AI for various clever features. Its built-in battery helps assist with both pushing and braking, so it’s easier to go up hills or keep things under control when loaded with a baby, diaper bag, and other objects.
Take the little one out of the stroller and the Ella AI can actually move along with you sans pushing. That is handy if the kid wants to walk and you have to hold their hand. The AI can also automatically rock the stroller back and forth to try and put the child to sleep without giving you an arm workout.
Victrola Stream Onyx Sonos-enabled turntable
Last year, Victrola announced its Stream Carbon turntable. It simplified the process of playing records through Sonos-connected wireless speakers. Its $799 price tag, however, was a little steep. At CES 2023, Victrola announced the
