At a time when the Consumer Electronics Show 2016 is all set to kick off in Las Vegas, the United States from early next week, technology enthusiasts across the world must be curious to know more about what to expect from the tech world in the future. The event which will run for approximately four days will start on Wednesday, January 6, 2016, and will continue to host tech related conferences and programs till Saturday, January 9, 2016.
According to media reports, the CES 2016, which showcases more than 3600 technology firms, plays a host to approximately 200 plus conference sessions, and is attended roughly by 150 thousand people, is expected to be clearly dominated by wearable technology, virtual reality and drones etc.
The event is primarily attended by the renowned personalities from the tech world, developers, tech manufacturers, and suppliers who deal with technology hardware and content etc.
Firms that deal with virtual reality, have been promising from quite some time to provide the consumers with a never-before kind of experience, which is expected to bring a drastic revolution in the way we communicate today.
Though, Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg, has said earlier in one of his statements that it won’t be totally possible in 2016 that everybody is equipped with a VR headset. However, the statements coming out from the representatives of other tech firms are sufficient enough for VR enthusiasts, to have big expectations from this futuristic technology.
For example, Cher Wang the Chief Executive at HTC has made a statement earlier saying that the company’s VR headset HTC Vive has ended up with “a very, very big technological breakthrough.” This particular statement forces consumers to have huge expectations from HTC Vive VR headset. But this new breakthrough is certainly going to delay the launch of this VR product in the market, as per the statement given by Wang.
Google’s VR headset Google Cardboard, which has already made its presence in the market as a highly cost-effective VR platform, which can be conveniently used with smartphones is only raising bars for tech firms working on VR projects such as Facebook (Oculus VR), Sony (Sony PlayStation) and HTC Vive.
According to reports, Oculus said on Thursday that it is going to delay the launch of a hand controller for a few months, which is meant to be used with it VR headset.
When it comes to exhibiting drones, organizers are expected to clear approximately 25,000 square feet of land. All this information is only allowing consumers to expect a lot from the upcoming event.
