CES 2020 preview: Surprise booths, slim screens and smart home everywhere

Tech Industry
[MUSIC] 2020, not only is that the number I haven't heard since my eyes started falling apart in my early 20s, rest in peace my perfect vision. It is also the 53rd year of everybody's favorite tech show CES. Wondering what we will be seeing at the conference. CES is evolving even more than usual, like Pokemon, but is it a cool pangoro evolution or like a really lame magic carpet. Kind of evolution? Actually becoming a harder and hard-earned question to answer, but there does seem to be one particular trend that sticks out, non-traditional booths. Over the years, huge companies like Microsoft have pulled out of the convention. Intel won't even have it's traditional massive booth this year. Looking at the keynote schedule, Delta Airlines is making an appearance. Fingers crossed for a robot flight attendant. And entertainment companies like NBC Universal an Quibi have keynotes scheduled, likely to discuss their respective streaming platforms, both launching in 2020. Other interesting attendees include John Deere of Track their fame and impossible meats. Maybe we'll see a self driving tractor this year or a new kind of lab grown meat to enjoy. Or maybe they'll join forces and create a self driving tractor made entirely of meat. Okay, yeah, that was a bridge too far. I will own that. Even though the show looks a lot different that it used even just ten years ago, we still expect more traditional CES categories to make us There's a rumor LG will show up its transparent OLED TV during their press conference. And if you just upgraded to a 4k TV well I'm sorry to say 8k TVs will start popping up more and more this year. We'll see lots of new 5G phones now that the infrastructure is slowly rolling out, as well as other tech looking to utilize the technology. And don't forget foldable phones. Hopefully manufacturers will start ironing the kinks and there will be some legitimately Exciting and more robust handsets to check out at CES. As for smart home companies will definitely showcase even more practical gadgets for you to use, as well as some wackier ones, for example, pantry on a shelf that tracks items as you use them and helps you build a grocery list. So you never have to wonder if you. If you're running low or need to get something while you're out shopping Amazon and Google will have booths full of devices that utilize their respective voice assistants and their will of course be an army of robots big and small scattered across the show that will both dazzle and terrify us with their increasing capability. Good stuff or scary stuff. As always we'll be on the ground bringing you the best weirdest, worst, and most exciting technology of the show when our official coverage begins on January 5th 2020. See you then fellow nerds. Till then, be good humans. [MUSIC] [MUSIC] [BLANK_AUDIO]
