Great Gadgets Of 2022 For You To Buy

As COVID-19 cases continue to rise because to the quick spread of the Omicron version, this year’s CES was once again different from previous years—some in-person events went on as scheduled in Las Vegas, but numerous major tech companies, including Google, Intel, and Microsoft, went virtual instead.

CES 2022, however, was not without its share of high-tech splendor. Those who attended in person—or seen the virtual announcements—were treated to a variety of innovations, including BMW’s color-changing SUV and Razer’s cutting-edge modular PC design.

TIME’s Best of So-Nerdy CES 2022 is as follows:

The BMW iX Flow is a new model from BMW.

BMW’s new electric iX Flow employs e-ink technology to entirely change its color scheme from black to white and everywhere in between, with a trick straight out of a James Bond movie. It can also present intricate patterns and designs. While the color options on the IX Flow are confined to the same grayscale spectrum as an e-ink reader, the technology has other advantages: on a hot day, drivers can lower the interior temperature by switching from black to a more reflecting white option.

The TP-Link AXE200 is a router from TP-Link.

When it comes to home internet, mesh network routers are the new media darling, but have you considered a router that shifts its antennae to give you the greatest signal? All four antennae on TP-new Link’s AXE200 router move based on which position affords users the best signal, making it look like something out of a Christopher Nolan film. In principle, it’s a fantastic idea, and we’re excited to put it to the test in practice.

The AXE200 also has some considerable networking power. It’s tri-band (supporting 5GHz, 2.4GHz, and 6GHz) and can be plugged into a mesh network that’s compatible with it. It also includes Wi-Fi 6E, the most recent Wi-Fi Alliance standard, which allows the AXE200 Omni to improve throughput and lower latency for enabled devices.

PlayStation VR2 (Sony)

Sony is bringing back a cult favorite among gamers at CES: the PlayStation VR platform. Sony’s new PlayStation VR2 headset and Sense controller, designed for the PlayStation 5, will take advantage of the new console’s processing capacity to give a higher-resolution experience than the previous model. The new headgear boasts high-end capabilities such as a 4K OLED HDR display and eye tracking for enhanced realism. In contrast, Sony’s new Sense VR controllers, which are identical to the controllers available on Facebook’s Oculus Quest 2 VR headset, provide better tracking quality without the need for a camera directed at gamers (though Sony says the PlayStation VR2 will require a cable).

Sophia, a Razer Project

Razer’s latest cutting-edge Project Sophia PC design is a desk with embedded modular components that allows users to swap parts and modules like displays, USB hubs, and wireless chargers. It’s not the first time the business has attempted to make the PC more modular; last year, it demonstrated a more realistic design based on Intel’s compact NUC, which is effectively a tiny CPU and motherboard combination. Project Christine, a 2014 PC concept, showed us a hypothetical PC future in which major component upgrades were as simple as changing a roll of toilet paper.

Is this to say you’ll be getting a cutting-edge modular PC in the near future? No, for the time being, this is only a notion. Razer, on the other hand, always delivers when it comes to the CES ethos of pushing the boundaries.

GM’s Silverado, Equinox, and Blazer electric vehicles

GM Chair and CEO Mary Barra announced during her keynote talk at the 2022 CES that the Chevrolet Equinox EV will be available in the 2024 model year.

GM is a company that makes automobiles.

General Motors has you covered if you’ve been looking for a low-cost, no-compromise electric vehicle. The business introduced a trio of all-electric vehicles with identical looks and range to their gasoline equivalents at CES this year: the electric Chevy Silverado pickup truck, as well as the Chevy Equinox and Blazer, two electric SUVs due in 2023.

What’s the best part? The costs. The Equinox will cost roughly $30,000, making it an accessible electric model that competes with more expensive options such as Tesla’s Model X and Ford’s Mustang Mach-E. It’s also appealing to the eye, which may encourage greater acceptance.

The Asus Zenbook 17 has a foldable OLED display.

Is it a tablet computer? Is that a laptop? Netflix on a large folding screen? Asus and its Zenbook 17 Fold OLED are boosting the cool factor in laptop design in any way you slice (or bend) it. It’s not the first folding laptop we’ve seen, but it could be the first with a screen that makes us want to use one—its 17.3-inch display is entirely made of OLED, which means vibrant colors and excellent contrast. It’s easy to carry around a screen bigger than several desktop monitors with the folding Zenbook and its travel cover, and the detachable keyboard makes it a productivity powerhouse, offering you a wonderful desktop-like experience practically anywhere.

Graphics Card Nvidia RTX 3050

Nvidia, the chipmaker whose cards power everything from game consoles to self-driving vehicles, announced the next generation of its consumer graphics cards at CES 2022. The RTX 3050 fills a big gap in Nvidia’s lineup, and makes cutting-edge graphics technologies like ray tracing more accessible to consumers who can’t afford top-of-the-line cards for more than twice that price. These less expensive GPUs should also help gamers and PC builders find stock in an era when cryptocurrency miners are snatching up graphics cards to mine for valuable digital tokens like Bitcoin and Ether.

NFT TVs from Samsung

NFTs, or networked financial tokens, are all the rage these days. They’re essentially digital art that can be purchased and traded on the blockchain. But how do you put them on show in the real world? Samsung has a response in the form of its current TV range, which will have an NFT browser that allows consumers to browse various items for sale before deciding which ones to buy and show.

OLED EX from LG

When it comes to televisions, LG just continues pushing the boundaries. With its new OLED EX models, the company has discovered a way to improve its OLED technology by using deuterium, also known as “heavy water,” to improve brightness and picture quality while reducing energy consumption.

Nebula Cosmos Laser 4K Projector by Anker

Anker, the business that creates every accessory you could possibly need for your twenty-first-century life, is back with a new projector range. And it couldn’t have arrived at a better moment, because the Nebula Cosmos Laser 4K projector could be ideal for anyone who has ever wanted to sit in a movie theater. The 4K projector has a brightness of 2,400 lumens, so movie night doesn’t have to start at midnight, and the built-in 30-watt speakers eliminate the need for additional sound equipment. Because the projector uses an Android operating system, you can simply install the streaming services you want right on the projector. It isn’t cheap at $2,200, but when was the last time a nice projector was?
