The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is the place to be if you want to see what’s coming next in technology. This year, there were a few big innovations that really stood out from the crowd. The NFT television, for example, is completely different from any TV we’ve seen before as it looks like a giant piece of art hanging on your wall and doesn’t need cables or connectors. The health and stress monitoring timepiece also gets rid of all those wires and plugs by using magnetic waves to transmit data about your heart rate and stress level wirelessly. Let’s take a deeper dive into some of these new wonder tech products to watch out for in 2022.
The NFT Television
First of all, what is NFT? Well, it stands for “Non-fungible token” and a non-fungible token is a digital asset that is unique and cannot be replaced by another unit of the same type. In other words, if you have an NFT token, it’s one of a kind. This new technology is being used to create digital collectables such as art, video games and even real estate. So what does this mean for TVs? The NFT TV will allow you to interact (and buy) NFT’s – which could be one to watch.
The health and stress monitoring watch
A watch has been developed by Phillips which assesses your cortisol levels. Cortisol is the stress hormone and this watch is designed to measure it by monitoring your heart rate, skin conductance and movement. The watch data wirelessly to an app on your phone which analyses it and provides you with tips on how to reduce your stress levels. This could be a real game-changer for people who are struggling with their mental health.
The 1,000 KM electric car
Mercedez-Benz is showcasing a car due for release in 2024 which would be capable of travelling 1000km. That’s a lot further than the average electric car which typically only offers up to 500km. This is all down to their new ultra-lightweight, super-strong material called “carbon fibre”.
The invisible wireless headphones The final piece of tech on our list is completely indescribable! These are so innovative because they don’t actually exist yet but are based on the concept that if you could have a pair of headphones that are completely invisible then there would be no need for wires at all. They’re being developed by researchers in Japan and they work using bone conduction technology which allows sound to pass through your skull out into the air so it can reach your ears without any physical earbuds or speakers.
