Listen to the podcast:
After a two-year hiatus caused by the epidemic, CES is back in shape. The world’s biggest tech giants descended on Las Vegas once again, bringing with them some amazing stuff. We saw an $800,000 flying car, a big wireless TV, and yes, a urine sensor for your home bathroom.
This CES 2023 heralds the return of the full in-person experience. More than 100,000 people have attended. Additionally, more than 2,200 companies promoted what they think will be the next big things. Here we focus on the best products and services from CES 2023 that were in the biggest tech show.
Before we dive into our Best of CES 2023 list, we tried to limit the number of recipients of our Best of Show award to between five and seven. Everyone on this list meets at least one of the following requirements.
- The product has a concept or idea never seen before.
- This product is intended to address an important customer issue.
- The item is a redesign or new version of an established product that raises the bar in terms of performance or quality.
Finally, to avoid awarding items that may never see the light of day, we assign more weight to those with a delivery window or schedule of at least one calendar year, as opposed to those that don’t have a planned release date or are imprecise.
The innovative products that are the best of CES 2023
Afeela electric vehicle from Sony
Sony revealed a new electric vehicle concept dubbed the Afeela at CES three years after unveiling a concept car. The electric vehicle created in partnership with Honda will use Qualcomm technology. The car will be launched as early as 2026.
Sony CEO Kenichiro Yoshida described the car as an “in-motion entertainment environment” when he unveiled it on the CES stage. The prototype car is equipped with 45 cameras and sensors both inside and outside the vehicle to ensure the safety of passengers.

Delta Airlines will offer free Wi-Fi on domestic flights
At CES 2023, Delta announced some big news for loyal travelers: the airline would soon offer free WiFi on most domestic flights. By February, more than 80% of your fleet will have free WiFi. The caveat is that you must be a member of the airline’s SkyMiles frequent flyer program to use the free WiFi.
John Deere continues to revolutionize agriculture
At CES 2023, John Deere – yes, the green and yellow tractor business – featured some of the most creative items. He demonstrated the ExactShot, a robotic fertilization system, and a new electric excavator. Instead of repeatedly dropping fertilizer, ExactShot uses sensors and robots to place it exactly where it’s needed. Meanwhile, the electric excavator emits no pollution and is still powerful.
Android joins Apple in the future of satellite text messaging
Qualcomm introduced Snapdragon Satellite at CES 2023, which would effectively allow customers buying new Android phones later this year to transmit two-way text messages using satellites. The capability could be useful for people who need to communicate but don’t have phone coverage.
Android transfer music from car to phone
At CES 2023, Google introduced a new feature called “seamless listening” that will seamlessly migrate your current music or podcast from one device to another based on your location. Dedicated users of the Android ecosystem can, for example, get out of their vehicle and automatically transfer their music to their phone.
Android Auto is renewed
Google revealed at CES 2023 that the Android experience in cars has undergone a significant makeover. A progress meter for podcasts and music is one of the mods, along with relocating the Map view closer to the controller and adding a quick launcher for frequently used apps.
BMW presents a car that changes color
The I Vision Dee, a concept car from BMW, will allow drivers to mix and match 32 different colors. This car that is exclusive has been exposed.
Lenovo shows off a metaverse without headphones
The strangest item that tech giant Lenovo discontinued was probably a metaverse device without headphones. A person’s actions and facial expressions would be captured by Project Chronos. So, they could participate in an event that was taking place virtually.
Robot designed to care for the elderly
On display was Aeo, an adorable robot from Aeolus Robotics that can open doors, carry objects, and sanitize surfaces. They even take selfies. Oh, and thanks in part to its 360-degree night vision camera, it can also serve as a slightly less fun security guard.
TCL presents new augmented reality glasses
At CES 2023, TCL introduced its new augmented reality glasses. Mashable’s Christianna Silva described the glasses, which can display GPS navigation and machine translation, as well as notifications for phone calls and messages, as “huge, blocky, and extremely cool.”
Volkswagen’s latest EV in QR codes
Volkswagen’s next electric vehicle will match Tesla’s 400-mile range on a single charge, but its near-production model is hidden with a QR code that covers the entire vehicle. The vehicle will not be available until 2026 as part of a new lineup, however the external QR code electroluminescent light show may not be a standard feature.
