An unmanned tractor controlled by artificial intelligence, a smart door and bed and thousands of other technological innovations were unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in the US. It opened on Wednesday and runs until January 7.
The show takes place annually, drawing tens of thousands of industry representatives to Las Vegas, Nevada. A year earlier CES was moved to a virtual format because of anti-vision restrictions.
In December 2021, organisers announced that this time CES would take place in person, subject to the vaccination of all attendees. The show tentatively began on Monday and officially opened on Wednesday, despite a spike in the number of infections with the Omicron coronavirus strain in the US.
More than 2,300 companies are represented at the show, of which 800 are startups.
Among the novelties are electric cars of famous brands, a huge TV set, a compact projector, and "invisible" headphones. Other notable novelties include a smart bed that adjusts to the curves of the body, a kitchen faucet that carries out voice commands, an entrance door embedded in smart home technology, and many others.
An unmanned tractor equipped with cameras and artificial intelligence also caught the attention of local media. This allows it to do its own work in the field, bypassing rocks and gullies, while the tractor driver only has to adjust the set tasks from a smartphone.
The Consumer Electronic Show has been held since 1967, exclusively in Las Vegas since 1995. This year, new products are presented in 44 categories.
