CES 2024 is over for another year in Las Vegas, and we've seen some of the biggest and most exciting tech announcements of the year already.
From product launches over the next few months to gadgets and inventions that could revolutionize how tech fits into our lives over the next few years, this show had it all. Everything from TVs and smart home tech to AR and VR were unveiled by the biggest tech companies on the planet.
The Tom's Guide team hit the show floor in force to bring you the latest news and our early thoughts on the hottest new tech. You can find all our coverage listed below. And rest assured, you'll surely see a lot of these products reappearing on the site in the months to come as we get to review them properly. If you need a recap from the fourth and final day of our time at the show, you can find it here.

Samsung is really a tale of two halves when it comes to its January announcements at CES this year. The Korean company is going hard on introducing new TVs and smart home appliances — all of which will come with a ton of AI smarts built-in.
And on the other side, there is Samsung Galaxy Unpacked, where we will be seeing the new Galaxy S24 line of smartphones from the company. You won’t be the least surprised to know these will be packed with AI features too. This event will be happening just a few days after CES on Wednesday, January 17.
On the TV front, Samsung has come out strong and announced its entire QLED and OLED line-up at the show. There's also new lifestyle products, like an upgraded The Frame, new Premiere projectors, like the Premiere 8K, and a smaller Music Frame for audio junkies. There's also a treat in the form of a new transparent microLED TV that our editor Kate Kozuch got to see up close.
When it comes to smart home tech, Samsung is doubling down on introducing AI into both large and small appliances. Like the Bespoke 4-Door Flex Refrigerator with AI Family Hub+ that uses internal cameras to intelligently identify food items as they come and go from the appliance. Or the robot vacuum and mop that uses AI to detect floor type and stains as well as dodge obstacles in your home.

LG normally follows suit with Samsung in introducing new TVs and smart home tech to form a unified suite across the house. But LG Display also appears at CES to drop some interesting concepts, and make some rather bold future predictions.
So far, plenty of announcements have already been made — the first of which is a beefy 98-inch QNED TV with AI enhancing every part of your viewing experience. This includes a Personalized Picture Wizard to take all the settings tweaking-based guessing games out of finding a picture that you like, and AI Sound Pro that has the rather ambitious goal of delivering 9.1.2 virtual surround sound from built-in speakers.
In fact, LG's lineup of new 2024 OLED TVs was announced just ahead of CES 2024. Among the OLED TVs coming our way this year are the new LG C4 OLED, LG G4 OLED and LG M4 OLED — the latter two of which will be outfitted with LG's new a11 AI Processor. The C4 and the lower B4 OLED model will still have some new tricks up their sleeves thanks to the A9 and A8 AI processors respectively.
Away from TVs, we also have a future concept of what a car interior could look like with the help of LG’s various OLED display innovations. We’re not just talking about a big tablet on the dashboard a la Tesla, but rather a full length OLED panel in the front with Switchable Privacy Mode (so the passenger can watch something without distracting the driver), and slidable screens for backseat passengers.
Finally, on the homes front, LG Electronics has revealed a Smart WashCombo that runs a complete wash and dry cycle in under two hours without having to transfer clothes between different machines.

Looking more broadly at what looks set to happen to the TV at CES 2024, you start to notice that AI is a key running theme throughout. But personally, there are a few other trends we can confidently say are a big part of the show.
Both Samsung and LG have released transparent screens that are, quite simply, mind boggling to behold. Over on the LG side we have the LG Signature OLED T, which, apart from being transparent, benefits from an LG-developed UI specifically designed to make the apps look like they’re floating in thin air. It looked especially effective when we checked out some space and fish tank animations.
Meanwhile, Samsung's transparent telly is an all-new version of its microLED displays that, admittedly, haven't earned major headlines in recent years.
As for how it compares to Samsung's existing microLEDs you can actually buy (though they're quite expensive compared to the best TVs), the color reproduction on the transparent version was more vibrant than you'd expect, while the animations looked sharp.

We saw some new laptops jump out before the show started, such as the Acer Swift Go 14 and MSI Prestige 16. Over in Dell's stable, the company revealed a revamping and expansion of its XPS range based on the success of the XPS 13 Plus released last year. Featuring a new simplified design, there will be 13, 14 and 16-inch models. We've had an early look at the Dell XPS 16 and the three laptops in the refreshed range will all include machined aluminum chassis, Gorilla Glass screens and AI acceleration built into the device thanks to the new generation of Intel Core Ultra processors with built-in NPUs.
Razer has teased the upcoming display upgrades coming to the refreshed Blade 16 and Blade 18 gaming laptops at CES 2024. It looks like we may be getting the world's first 240hz OLED display on a gaming laptop.
Meanwhile, Acer has dropped into the mix with a couple of interesting models. That includes the cheapest stereoscopic 3D laptop you can buy, the Acer Aspire 3D 15 which lands in March at a starting price of $1,399 and the new Acer Swift Go 14. The latter boasts a CPU upgrade to Meteor Lake, plenty of AI smarts and a gorgeous OLED display. There's even multimedia controls baked into the trackpad that become visible when the laptop automatically detects you’re watching/listening to content. Neat.

Typical uses include what you'd expect, robots that want to become your friendly household helper and ever-increasing virtual worlds and NPCs for you to interact with.
But the AI bandwagon is rolling into every corner of tech town, and we're sure that 2024 will be an even bigger year for the trend than 2023.

With the spectre of the Apple Vision Pro looming large in the background, we were very interested to see what other companies would bring to the virtual reality/augmented reality table at CES 2024.
The first exciting product we've seen is the Xreal Air 2 Ultra AR glasses which have been revealed at the show. They're priced at $699, available in March, and primed to compete with Vision Pro and Meta Quest 3.
The price is a big jump up from the $399 asking price of the standard Air 2, but with fully-fledged VR headsets in its sights, Xreal has made some huge upgrades and packed them all into the impressively sleek pair of sunglasses.

One of the great things about CES is the sheer amount of variety that makes an appearance year after year. Not everything we see falls into an easily-definable category but is interesting nonetheless.
There's a whole host of products at the show, like accessories and peripherals, that support the main categories listed above. For instance, the Belkin Auto Tracking Stand Pro is perhaps the most practical device we've seen at the show so far this year. And we're only one day in. And what about a pair of smart binoculars that can identify any bird you look at.
Of course, alongside the practical there's the plain weird. And we'll be keeping an eye out for those as well because everyone needs a little weird tech to start off a new year.
