CES 2018 preview: The year of connections


The Consumer Electronics Show is back 9-12 January 2018. Find out what to expect.

Brace yourself for what may well be the most overused word at CES 2018. From the world’s Cities to the Cosmos, all will be CONNECTED at this year’s big show.

Indeed, 2017 marked the 50th anniversary of CES and – with CES 2018 approaching – technology appears to be on the verge of making some of our sci-fi dreams come true.

At CES 2018, you can expect a considerable emphasis on VR, 360, AI, connected homes, smart cities and seamless ‘human integrations’ of technology.

And, in a world where any surface can be a screen and virtually any object can be made ‘smart,’ expect CES presenters to wring their hands over the implications of so much ‘always on-ness’.

We are likely to be left with as many questions as answers, but debates over AI boundaries and ethics and cars in space will surely make for a provocative week.

Find out why, and get an insider’s view of the ideas, trends and innovations likely to get the most buzz at the big show in our annual CES preview.
