CES 2023: Metaverse Smells, Brain Scanning, and Virtual Breakthroughs

Virtual reality gadgets dominated this year’s CES tech exhibition in Las Vegas. Let’s take a look at some of the best things at the popular gadget fest in 2023, which ends on Sunday.

Getting shot, standing in a downpour, and being surrounded by bees: None of them is perfect, but the goal for gamers is to feel what each one is like. At the CES tech show, the video game industry is showing off new vests, head cushions, and other simulation products that make games feel more real.

Kiuk Gwak, CEO of bHaptics Inc., says, “A lot of people play games, and they demand gaming hardware.” told AFP as he showed off his company’s vest and gloves, He expresses his viewpoint by saying that “we need to build digital connections that are more human.”

The haptic vest makes you feel like you are in a virtual world, and the haptic gloves give you a sense of touch.

According to Gwak, “People don’t simply use our vest to get shot; they can also experience the wind, rain, or even bees in virtual reality.” This is possible thanks to the virtual reality capabilities of the vest.

Technology at the show wasn’t just about games, though. Hundreds of start-ups showed off products that were meant to improve health, education, and work, boost productivity, and help save the planet.

The Brain-Scanning Cap


The sync wave sits on top of your head and does a quick analysis of you, just like the Sorting Hat in the “Harry Potter” books. 

The headset was made by Amedisys. It does an electroencephalogram (EEG) and uses artificial intelligence to predict within 10 minutes the risk of cognitive problems like Alzheimer’s disease.

The South Korean company thinks that its headset could make diagnostic tests much cheaper and take much less time.

The device could also be used one day to treat neurodegenerative diseases with certain kinds of therapy.

Ready and Waiting



The new business OneThird, an organization that wants to stop food waste, showed off its infrared device that “scans” avocados, whose ripeness seems to depend on luck.

All you have to do is hold an avocado up to the scanner. Algorithms will then figure out if it is “not yet ripe,” “ripe,” or “overripe,” and give you a color-coded answer on your phone.

The device is also seen as a way to keep people from squeezing avocados over and over, which can cause them to go bad faster.

The name of the company comes from the fact that one-third of the world’s food goes to waste.

Gamer in The Car?


Razer is one of many companies, like Dell and Acer, that showed off laptops with big screens and powerful computer chips to attract gamers who want to move quickly and get into the game.

Also on display were the latest chips from AMD and Nvidia, which are competitors.

“Modern games with graphics that look more and more like real life need new levels of graphics power,” said Scott Herkelman, senior vice president of AMD’s graphics unit.

Nvidia also said that thanks to a partnership with Hyundai Motor Group, BYD, and Polestar, its GeForce Now video game service would be put into cars for the first time.

In a press statement, Nvidia stated that “thanks to cloud technology and mobile internet, people in automobiles won’t become bored because they can view movies, listen to music, “and now you can play video games, but the driver won’t be able to take part in the game while it’s being played because they won’t be allowed to do so when the car is moving.

It is anticipated that the capacity to broadcast video games to a vehicle will play a significant role in the in-car entertainment systems of the future.

Tech giants like LG and Samsung, which are competitors in South Korea, showed off screens at CES that were made for gamers and had features like sweeping curves to make the experience feel more real.

Programming without Code

As computers get more complicated by the day, many startups are making it easier for people who don’t know how to code to talk to computers.

At the Tactigon exhibit, Nadia Giuliani can be seen hiding behind a miniature robot. She grabs two connected joysticks, claps her hands, and says “clap.”

The machine immediately imitates her by clapping. She can also use it to show the robot how to dance.

“We use voice commands and gestures now because we need a more natural way to interact with the digital world,” says Massimiliano Bellino, CEO of Next Industries, which owns Tactigon.

“We need to make digital connections more human,” he says.

The artificial intelligence-based software suite made by the Italian company is made for factories so that workers can teach robots to do tasks instead of having to program them by hand.

Tactigon says that its algorithms will help people be 30% more productive.

Smart Punching Bag


The I-Perskin is a wireless sack that fits over any punching bag. It has light-up targets and flexible electronic sensors that guide workouts and measure the user’s strength and accuracy.

I-Percut, a French startup that made the cover, plans to sell it to gyms first.
