Techaeris Best of CES 2024: Some of the best things we saw at CES this year

, , , , , , , , ,

We are back at CES! It has been several years since we’ve been to a live CES event, and this year we managed to make it, albeit for only three days. The normal six days we’re here is never enough to see everything, and three days is even less of enough time. But, we still managed to scrape together the Techaeris Best of CES 2024 list.

Estimated reading time: 31 minutes

As much as we would have loved to add dozens more winners, we had to limit the number we picked. But, this Techaeris Best of CES 2024 list is by far the longest list we’ve ever done. I had set a limit at twenty, but there were just too many things that were so good, they had to be on the list. So here are the Techaeris Best of CES 2024 winners in no particular order.

Congratulations to all the brands represented here for winning a Techaeris Best of CES 2024 award, and be sure to visit their websites for more information on the devices and gadgets presented here.

Alienware m16 R2 Gaming Laptop

Alienware m16 R2 Techaeris Best of CES 2024
Techaeris Best of CES 2024

Our engineers and designers challenged themselves to craft a product that fulfills those requirements and introduces new features to the market. Meet the m16 R2, a redesigned gaming laptop that prioritizes performance, flexibility and portability, while preserving the Alienware advantages our customers have come to love.

Striking this balance required us to make bold changes. Let’s start with the most visible update. We knew to make our notebook more travel-friendly that we needed to bid adieu to the thermal shelf. But doing so was no simple task — after all, it housed the components that kept the previous model running cool.

Our engineers were up for the challenge — they completely redesigned and optimized a new thermal solution for the m16 R2 by adapting our Cryo-tech cooling to be more efficient in a smaller package. This ultimately resulted in 43% more efficient airflow compared to the previous model, and though we can’t divulge all the alien technology behind these thermal gains, you can rest assured the m16 R2 won’t break a sweat when playing the latest games.

Then there is the size benefit. Removing the thermal shelf reduced the depth of the laptop, resulting in a 15% smaller footprint compared to the previous generation. With this size reduction, the new 16” notebook easily fits into a small backpack and saves precious desk space for your gaming mouse, keyboard, and monitor.

Not only is the m16 R2 more compact, but it also has a larger palm rest and touchpad. How did we pull this off? By designing a slim yet sturdy 180-degree hinge and positioning it on the back edge of the notebook. Placing the hinge where the thermal shelf once resided gave us space to push up the keyboard and expand both the palm rest and touchpad.

Techaeris Best of CES 2024

Like home cleaning, traditional lawn care and maintenance are both costly and time-consuming. With Goat GX 600, ECOVACS’ first robotic lawn mower in the US, homeowners are introduced to the joys of a fully automated lawn mowing system that requires no setup or physical boundary settings, and minimal maintenance. Using its robotics intelligence from DEEBOT — like obstacle avoidance and navigation — ECOVACS developed GX 600 to work when you want it to, whether you’re home or away; no more waiting for your semi-monthly lawn care service — GX 600 is on demand.

GOAT GX 600 is the first RLM with combined vision and SmartMove technology, automatically distinguishing natural lawn boundaries by computationally identifying grass and non-grass areas like stone pavers and sidewalks. While most RLMs use ‘bump and run’ or boundary settings to operate — an imperfect solution that is dangerous to animals and harmful for yard tools or toys, GX 600 uses ECOVACS industry-leading AIVI 3D obstacle avoidance technology.

The all-new GOAT GX 600 comes with an outdoor charging station that serves as its homebase. Installation is easy and fast; simply install the charging station at the edge of the lawn, pair to the local network and press go!

The Premiere 8K uniquely features Wireless One Connect, giving you the freedom to configure your space and hook up peripheral devices without messy and complex wiring. It can be placed virtually anywhere, beautifully blending into the room with a premium design that features a lens cap and metal, wood, and rounded corner finishes.

Techaeris Best of CES 2024

For the first time, Samsung has brought flat OLED options to the Odyssey lineup, and a 16:9 aspect ratio to the Odyssey OLED G8 and Odyssey OLED G6. The new Odyssey OLED G8 and Odyssey OLED G6 models leverage the Odyssey OLED lineup’s unique, slim metal design, and include new Core Lighting+ to fit in its slim bezel.

Techaeris Best of CES 2024

With the new Transparent MICRO LED, Samsung is showing the world that there are infinite possibilities for screens. This new display, which looks like a piece of transparent glass, boasts an extremely small MICRO LED chip and a precision manufacturing process that eliminates seams and light refraction.

The LG SIGNATURE OLED T features a 77-inch transparent 4K OLED screen. Coupled with LG’s wireless audio and video transmission technology, it can be placed almost anywhere within one’s living space. Powered by a new α (Alpha) 11 AI processor, this latest TV is definitely a game changer when it comes to home entertainment. Our owner and Editor-In-Chief Alex Hernandez is LIVE at CES and shot some video of the new LG SIGNATURE OLED T.

When turned off, the transparent display blends into the environment, helping to make space feel larger and more open. With no cables between the Zero Connect Box and the OLED T, users can place the TV against a wall, a window, or even in the middle of a room without having to worry about tripping over cables or blocking views when the television set isn’t in use. The TV does have stand-alone, against-the-wall, or wall-mount options for those looking for a more traditional setup.

Exobrew announced that it will soon be introducing the first-ever solution for making beer, kombucha, ciders and alcoholic free beverages in the USA. Exobrew will offer Generation 3 devices (from $879), beer club subscription on ingredient packs ($25) and a pro-membership to create your own recipes ($9).

A team of experts in beer, technology, and design completely re-engineered beer making and introduced a groundbreaking approach to the art of crafting iconic beers in the comfort of one’s home while reducing glass bottle beers. “We empower users not only to create beers tailored to their preferences and re-taste their favorites discovered in a local bar, but also to monetize their unique recipes by selling them to larger breweries.” — Bart van de Kooij, Founder, and CEO of Exobrew.

The global consumption of beer is staggering, exceeding 185 billion liters, with 45% of American drinkers expressing a preference for locally crafted beers. Exobrew compact devices use newly invented technology and a cloud-based platform with unlimited recipes to brew 1.6 gallons (ca. 6 liters) of beer within 3 to 30 days’ time. This proprietary brewing process means fresh beer based on all grain ingredients without any additives.

The all-new 2024 SUMMIT smart gas grill is the most technologically advanced, versatile, premium offering in the Company’s gas portfolio. Weber designed it exclusively for outdoor cooks who seek a high-performing culinary showstopper for their outdoor space.

At the heart of the all-new SUMMIT grill experience is SmartControl technology. From the extra-large, color, high-definition touch screen on the SUMMIT grill’s knob-free control panel or via their smart device, this digital innovation allows cooks to:

  • Set and change the grill’s temperature;
  • Select their preferred cooking method – direct or indirect grilling – and based on their choice, the SUMMIT grill will show them precisely where to place food on the cooking grates for perfect results;
  • Monitor quick start and preheating steps so they know when the grill is ready to use;
  • Continuously surveil the progress of a cook remotely, and when needed, the SUMMIT grill will automatically self-adjust its heat levels to maintain an accurate temperature or smoothly manage temperature changes with precision to ensure dishes are not over or undercooked.
  • Monitor fuel levels and learn when it’s time to replenish;
  • Know when food is ready to be removed from the grill via alerts, and
  • Shut down the grill from their smart device.
