Hisense and Sony all showed off new TVs, including some breathtaking OLED and Micro LED models, while Asus, Acer, Lenovo, Alienware and others unveiled a slew of new laptops and PCs. In short, CES was business as usual in terms of new products. One thing Covid did affect was our ability to attend the show in person, meaning we’ve not been able to go hands-on all of the hottest gadgets at this year’s show. But after evaluating dozens of products based on their features, design and the level of innovation on display, these are the ones that make our CES 2022 awards list.
If CES 2022 taught us anything, it’s that it’ll take more than a pandemic to put a stop to technological progress. From TVs that roll around to electric vehicles that change colours, we’ve seen a slew of intriguing new items and technology in the last week. Established automakers like Chrysler, BMW, and Mercedes competed with upstarts like Sony to showcase the most eye-catching new models and concepts. Samsung, LG, and TCL are just a few examples.
I don’t know if you’ve looked out your window lately, but global warming is getting a lot worse, and automakers are responding by going electric. At CES 2022, the Stellantis-owned Chrysler brand announced that it will only sell electric cars by 2028. That’s a full seven years before GM plans to go all-electric in 2035.
