The Smart Ones is a podcast that arises from the collaboration between BNR, Androidworld and iCulture and discusses the exciting and above all fun world of tech. We’re talking about CES this time. The first trade fair of the new year that again had little to no audience and cancellations of a number of major brands. We ask ourselves: are these large exchanges still necessary?
The Smart Ones
A new episode of The Smart Ones is online. In the podcast of BNR, iCulture and Androidworld we talk about the fun world of tech every week. We have a number of regular sections such as the ‘news of the week’ and ‘the review’. In addition, each week we deal with a theme in an in-depth manner. The Smart Ones is not just about smartphones, but covers many more topics that belong in the world of tech. If you have any suggestions for us, please leave them in the comments.
#15 | CES 2022 almost without an audience: Does a tech fair still make sense?
There are three major trade shows that we as tech enthusiasts look forward to. MWC in Barcelona, IFA in Berlin and the year always starts with CES in Las Vegas. Due to the entire corona crisis, CES has to make do with less audience. There are also a number of major brands that announced at the last minute that they would not participate.
Many of the announcements have been made online as a result, and that’s actually going pretty well. In the podcast, Connor asks Dim and Gonny whether such an event is still necessary. If we can do it online, why would we allow such a huge population migration to take place three times a year?
In addition, we all go through the nicest and most striking announcements from last week at CES. We’re talking about Google, a tracker for your dog, a VR tracker for your wrist from HTC, wireless charging of your remote, a car that can change color and how teleporting is getting closer and closer. Beam me up Scotty!
