CES 2016 Preview: The Future of Tech, Coming Soon to Las Vegas

Later this week, we’ll be bringing you updates from the International Consumer Electronics Show, usually called CES in the tech press. This annual gathering of thousands of tech companies and the tech media—in Las Vegas!—is always a great preview of what’s ahead each year in consumer electronics.

Why should you care? If you are thinking of getting a new phone, or a camera, or wondering when you’re really going to get a driverless car, CES is a great time to get some insights. Companies often preview upcoming product releases at CES, and many launch new products for the first time at this show.

What’s on deck in 2016? Many major phone releases (except for Apple devices) are made or previewed at CES, and AndroidPIT predicts this year is no exception.  This preview also thinks we’ll see several virtual reality devices and more wearable tech, like smartwatches.

New electric car company Faraday Future is expected to announce more details about its planned projects, as well, perhaps displaying a concept car. See Green Car Report for more details there.  It won’t be the first time a car company has made a big splash at CES, with new cars focused heavily on technology integration and cleaner energy in recent years.

If you’re interested in the latest TVs, 3D printers, drones and the makings of an even smart(er) home, pay attention the rest of this week, because the announcements will be rolling out. This TechRadar article gives a thorough overview of expected announcements, including press conference times.

Keep an eye on the Asurion blog over the next week, and we’ll help you connect to some of the most exciting news coming out of CES 2016!
