Sponsor is now accepting registration for the 2015 International CES. Same as it has always been, CES 2015 promises to be an even bigger show, full of the innovative, the inspiring and the impossible, and this is also a “golden opportunity” to see what’s coming next for us tech lovers, even if it’s years down the road from reaching consumers.
Here is a list of what we want to see at CES 2015, and don’t forget it’s only five months till the coming January, too.
1. TV innovation beyond the bend and curve
2. Stop the 4K TV price madness
We want to see top-tier TV manufacturers reduce the price by one digit with a $999 price tag for a 50-incher, instead of having a whopping $120,000 for the Samsung 105-inch curved 4K TV during CES 2014.
3. More than just more tablets from Samsung
4. LG and Huawei deliver standout smartphones
5. Next-level wearables
Although wearables are gaining steam, there’s always room for improvement. Our wish list for CES 2015 wearables includes waterproofing, more with heart rate monitors, standalone smarties that don’t need a mobile device and more full-featured smartwatches that are compatible with different OSes.
6. Virtual reality in Las Vegas
7. Truly good 2-in-1s
There will be PCs of every stripe at CES 2015, but we’re looking specifically at 2-in-1s for right now. HP, Dell, Acer and Asus are just a few of the notable names we’re putting money on to unveil new tablet/laptop hybrids, so it’s not a matter of if they’ll be announced but rather of how good they’ll be.
8. Smarter cars than ever before
Toyota ran away with the Best of CES 2014 awards thanks to its hydrogen-powered car. Part of our reasoning in giving the FCV the top spot was because of its industry-changing position as the first mass-produced fuel-cell vehicle. New CES 2015, we want more of the same: run on next-gen energy sources and don’t need a driver at all.
