Dubai, United Arab Emirates (CNN) – Sterilizers, next-generation fitness equipment, robots to help you cook dinner .. These are some of the many new products that are expected to be unveiled next week at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), which is the conference. The annual tech that identifies the highlights and biggest trends for this year.
There is no doubt that home automation, health and the fifth generation network will be among the loud topics this year, but many companies will also offer special features related to the epidemic that prompted the world to stay at home this year.
Every year, reporters, exhibitors and investors explore Las Vegas showrooms filled with gigantic televisions, smart cars and robots, but this year, due to the coronavirus, CES will only be available online for the first time in the exhibition’s 54-year history.
The Consumer Electronics Association, the nonprofit organization that organizes the 4-day event that begins on Monday, said 1,800 exhibitors from around the world will fill its “digital website” this year – a number much lower than the 4,000 exhibitors who attended the show last year. .
This move would allow technology companies from countries that have not previously attended to participate in the exhibition online, but it may also make it difficult for small companies to be noticed without being physically present on the ground.
Registered attendees will be able to broadcast and re-watch keynote addresses from companies such as Verizon and General Motors, as well as listen to breakout sessions and search through the Exhibitor Register for new product presentations.
5G networks are expected to dominate the discussions at CES 2021 as they did last year. CES reports that about 20 sessions will delve into how 5G is reinvented for different industries, from cars and smart cities to healthcare and agriculture. 5G laptops may also appear.
Sanitary ware, fitness equipment and wearables have always been popular at CES, but this category will double this year, due to increased demand in the wake of the pandemic and the industry’s gradual move in this direction.
The transition to the internet that we saw last year will be a major talking point at CES, from telehealth to work from home, remote learning, and live broadcasting, as well as the role of technology in better supporting these changes.
With millions of people staying home, companies hope to add more smart devices and systems to living rooms, kitchens and other places. Unlike products like smart refrigerators and washing machines, devices like robotic vacuum cleaners and air filters may get smarter through audio integration.
