Tech Expert, Andrea Smith, gives an exclusive sneak peek at which gadgets to be on the lookout for ahead of the big debuts.

MeetKai Metaverse

There's been a lot of talk about the Metaverse at the show – the soon-to-be virtual world where we’ll have social experiences. Companies like MeetKai are racing to build out and create an ever-changing rich world of AI-generated content. MeetKai Inc. is an Artificial Intelligence, VR, and Conversational Search Company, currently leading the AI speech race with never-before-seen features.

Conversational AI is going to be the key in all this which is why MeetKai’s Metaverse will have AI guides and coaches that can understand more complex speech and give personalized results in a natural conversation. For example, imagine having a private yoga instructor or a personalized boxing lesson in VR with a guide modeled after a real-life, well-known instructor in that field.

If we want to create a true second place where people can live and experience more of the world, it cannot be done without intelligent conversation made possible with the help of AI.


Samsung Odyssey Neo G8 32” Gaming Monitor

Gaming monitors at CES are absolutely stunning this year -- like this Samsung Odyssey Neo G8 32” Gaming Monitor. It’s the world’s first 4K screen with a 240Hz refresh rate and 1ms response. In gaming talk, that’s virtually no lag with super smooth transitions and animations - the difference between winning and losing the match.

The Samsung Neo Odyssey G8 monitor is built with CoreSync, a feature that automatically detects colors in the game and matches them to lights on the rear for an even more immersive gaming experience. For instance, if there’s a blue sky in the game, the back of the monitor will light up blue giving you a halo effect behind the screen.

With the futuristic white design and curved display, you’ll be fully immersed you in the gameplay.

There’s also lots of gaming accessories – like the JBL Quantum headphone series which has expanded its gaming portfolio to now include The Quantum Stream. This is JBL’s first USB microphone with crystal-clear communication for chatting with teammates.
