Connected objects, new televisions and robots … The latest innovations presented at the opening of the CES show in Las Vegas

The CES in Las Vegas will be held from January 7 to 11, 2020 (JC / RF)

The CES (Consumer Electronic Show) in Las Vegas in the United States is the world's largest technology fair. It has been around for over 40 years. This is where the VCR or flat screens were launched in the past. Today, major brands are no longer reserving their announcements for CES and some leading companies are even absent, such as Apple or Microsoft. But the CES remains, despite everything, an unmissable event where major trends in the digital field are taking shape.

Samsung introduced a panel TV system (microLED technology) that allows you to compose screens of any size by assembling squares.

Pending the release of these “modular TVs” of the future, the year 2020 will be made up of increasingly large screens with 8K technology and a dream design. Samsung thus presents a television almost without any border while LG prepares the marketing of its roll-up television which disappears in a piece of furniture when it is not used.

More unusual: a screen capable of rotating from horizontal mode to vertical position. This is to allow the viewing of vertical videos from social networks.

Many manufacturers present connected products for the home compatible with Google, Amazon or Apple voice assistants: lights, ovens, washing machines, refrigerators equipped with cameras to find out what's inside… You can even see a pommel shower integrating the Alexa assistant (to listen to the radio in the bathroom) or a voice-activated tap with uncertain utility.

Samsung has unveiled a strange little yellow tennis ball-like robot that rolls on its own like the Star Wars BB8 robot. Called Ballie, it is equipped with a camera to monitor your apartment in your absence. He can also play the dog and, no doubt tomorrow, also serve as a voice assistant. A digital mascot of the 21st century.

In recent years, the French have been present in numbers at CES in Las Vegas, including startups (437 in 2019). This year, the airfoil was reduced (around 300 startups). This is a way of limiting the unpacking aspect of previous years a bit, where gadgets of little use were present in large numbers.
