This was my 7th year in person at CES and it was a blast! Hey if you haven't subscribed yet do it here! bit.ly/3joO1dZ
Great video - In fact, this is big part of the reason I stopped attending CES in person and we (as a family) actually go BEFORE CES / during the holidays when we can book our stay at Venetian (or insert favorite Las Vegas resort/casino here) at lot more affordable rates for the entire family and leave a day or two before the madness starts (as we did this year). You summarize the key highlights and announcements of the show quite well. Plus, it saves me from walking around half a day only to end up at a booth where someone is demo-ing a VR-like box to yell into (really, is this why I flew halfway across the country for?! 🤔). Kudos and keep it up. 👍
Question for next year. "But does it work with Home Assistant."
@Devyn Bellamy and a follow on, "Do you have a sample YAML I can grab?"
Does some inventors think before invent? Smh
Great video! For some reason it's been hard this year to find a good CES overview video. Too many of them have been hyper focused on just a few devices but this is much better and to the point.
It was like this last year too. He had the best video back to back years
Everyone else just reviews TV's and Laptops
Exactly my thoughts. The rest are all about the same things over n over again.
Yeah based on videos I’ve seen I felt like going would have been a disappointment.
To me this was the most real, useful and entertaining CES Recap I've seen this year and I had kinda seen all the big Clip-Sharers and media houses reports/recaps. Thanks mate.
As usual, you provide the best CES coverage. Thank you once again!
You did a great job! You covered a range of items and described them very well. I almost feel like I was there! 😁 Thank you!
I agree. This guy is really good
Wow, If CES comes out with half of the items displayed I’ll be amazed. Your great at explaining a lot of the new Tech changes out there & id still love to get exactly what’s the difference between Matter & Thread! Thanks
This is the type of video I was looking for to learn about CES 2023. Thank you so much! It's so much better than the other videos that are out there.
Incredible video! It's always exciting to see the latest and greatest technology and innovations on display at CES. I appreciated the variety of products and technologies you highlighted, it gave a great overview of what's new and trending.
The slim vacuum is probably just using stationary LiDAR, which scans what’s right in front of the device. The spinning top on most is to provide a 360 view of what’s around the vacuum, which is more efficient at mapping
I use your videos every year in my English class! My freshmen students read dystopian literature with an introduction on smart technology and our lives. It's great to keep them interested by showing them the latest updates in our smart tech lives. Thanks for great videos each year.
Some pretty cool stuff there.
We have actually had flame detectors in the industrial sector for many years now, but nice to see a consumer product.
Also, I think I'll just let HA keep replicating my lighting when I'm away to imitate someone being home. 😁
Thank you for the CES overview, Reed.
Personally, as a septuagenarian, I would like to see more smart tech geared toward the needs of senior citizens - especially seniors with physical and cognitive impairment.
However, I was pleased to see the kitchen sensor that can detect open flames. As a memory patient, I often walk away from an active gas burner on the stove.
Of course, the show offers more tech than can be seen on one or two Clip-Share videos. But, between your coverage and LonTv's coverage, CES 2023 seems to be in a decline in terms of substantial innovation.

Me too! At 75, I don't care about gaming but love the practical stuff that makes life easier with impaired mobility.
i mean the ultimate in elderly care would be an android like robot that can do all your chores
As a younger person with neck arthritis I would never buy a vr gaming headset as I don’t need extra weight on my head exacerbating my condition
The key takeaway from your video; and I quote “ Just when you thought CES couldn’t announce anymore unnecessary products…” Couldn’t have said it better.
That was my recurring reaction throughout the whole thing. 😆
Considering even conventional refrigerators have a lifespan of less than a decade anymore, I can't imagine how short-lived the smart fridges must be!
That's all CES has turned into. It's like a giant sky Mall catalog. Trying to find solutions for problems that don't exist.
@phdonme1 well said! 😆
Exactly! Pointless products.
I guess I wasn't the only one who thought so. VR is coming along nicely, but I'd wait 5 years to see where it goes. The rest is gimmicks and garbage.
7:57 "This gives me hope that our doorbells and home security cameras can someday have AI for person, pet, or package detection" surprise, Apple has had this for _years_ and it's been working great. Plus you don't have to worry about the security lapses like Eufy/Anker/Ring/Nest have had in the past years, repeatedly.
Personally I've been using the HomeKit Logi Circle View, but I've had good experiences with other ones as well, and for the face-height-mounted cameras/doorbells, there's an option (defaults to off, but can be turned on in Settings) to also learn faces, so you can receive notifications when _specific_ people are at your door, all done locally on-device rather than having the AI done over the cloud.
preliminary edit since I know y'all will ask the same questions over and over: We have cats, not dogs, have not tested on other pets but there's a dog or two in the neighborhood that sometimes come up to our porch and I still get notifications for that. So while I can only personally attest to extensive testing and support with cats, it does _appear_ to work with dogs too - as well as wrens making nests in our rafters by the camera, finches hunting for spiders, spiders running from finches, doves and pigeons chilling on the ground, and a neighborhood fox that loves all of the above. Lots of amusing notifications when pets/animals is turned on.
package detection was hit-or-miss due to some weird geometry on our porch causing really sharp 90° and 45° corner shadows. Sometimes these would cross over certain parts of our brown-colored front wall, and the corner of the ground meeting the wall plus a 'box shaped' shadow would fool the camera into thinking there was a package there, so I learned to just skip the notification if there wasn't _also_ a notification for motion or person beforehand. This was fixed after an update or two, and I have not had the issue again.
person detection was incredibly useful, sometimes too good. Our front porch has a window, which from the camera's perspective, is a mirror pointed at the street, so when people would walk by on the street, I would (initially) get notifications for this. At first I thought it was actually seeing people in the street, since it was an extremely wide-angle camera, so I went into homekit's settings and drew a bounding box to exclude the street from person notifications. They kept coming though, so once I watched the footage and realized it was reflections in the window, I adjusted the camera angle slightly and added a second bounding box on a small portion of the window to prevent tiny, faraway people silhouettes from setting off the alert. This did NOT stop the alert if someone was actually on our porch walking in front of the window, which was perfect.
lastly, car detection was also included, but none of us had cars, so I simply disabled it - homekit could identify a bicycle, though, so that is what we used instead. I cannot attest to any amount of good/bad results with car detection in homekit unfortunately, but I'm sure there's plenty of other people out there who can provide that.
This is the one video which describes CES the best. Although I love watching new innovations, I tend to have a love hate relation with it. I find that most of the technology is used on unwanted things, but I guess people who have a lot of money lying around could use those. :P
I am wealthy and I would rather light cigars with my money than spend it on any of the products in this video. LOL
You made the best CES overview I’ve seen yet. Topped The Verge and all. Nice work.
This was one of my favorite CES videos this year. Good work!
2:18 excellent dad pun. Awesome video Reed! I definitely want to go to CES next year! I thought Samsung was getting out of making SmartThings hardware and was handing it over to Aeotec, but I guess not!
Looks like CES was more so paving the way for some future things, but looking forward to how next year really refines them.
90% of the stuff there wont ever see production.
One (small) downside to the SmartThings Station is that if you're charging a phone you'll more than likely have to move or remove the phone to press the smart buttons.
I would like to see a faucet that was controllable. Temp & pressure. You could have various presets and just press a button for what ever temp pressure you want. No more trying to blend it manually.
As you mentioned AI on cameras, I suggest you take a look at the Mobotix 7 series, their AI is very impressive and can do much more
One of the best things I saw at CES was you walking by!
Thanks for your putting together all the cool stuff and things I missed.
Love the new doorbell camera. Any thoughts as to whether it would run without a hub? I.e just connect to a HomePod mini?
Some of the tech in this expo looks like sci-fi 😃😃 am very excited for the future 💪💪 with all these interesting innovative ideas and appliances with AI coming up
Fantastic video. Concise highlights with just the right amount of humor. I’m pretty sure duct tape cornered the market on scream muffling decades ago.
The Lenovo dual display laptop with keyboard overlay reminded me of the 20 year old Sony Ericsson P800. One of the first camera phones I owned and the screen dynamically changed when I flipped the keyboard on top of the touch screen.
I had a Sprint phone, made by Motorola or maybe Samsung, around 99-00 that had a front screen and number keys that changed when you flipped it up to use the inside screen.
it had a touch qwerty keyboard that you could also write/draw on, and I'm pretty sure it had handwrite to text capability, and a touch number keypad.
It was great! Of course it had the green and black display.
Now that I think about it, the front/outside 'screen' might have just been a window to the inside screen, but it showed a digital display like we have now, with time, date, etc.
Thank you for the recap! This was exactly what I was looking for.
I like your honest reviews on these items, you can tell nobody is paying you to endorse stuff
Real nice video ! That's cover lots of things in a short time! Kept us entertained! Nice work! And thanks!
Even more cool then that first lawn mover is this one they actually currently sell (sorry forget the name) that can also sweep your patio and patrol your yard as a security device. It's crazy cool, also crazy expensive but if I had a yard big enough to need patrolling I'd get it.
one that can move small branches, detect string, hoses, small toys, rocks, little hills, paving stones, flower bed edges, wet grass, dog poop, puddles? No one has a perfectly flat lawn.
Uselss product - takes no time at all to mow a lawn by hand. If you are old or crippled - go hire your neighbors kid - for 5-10$ you get your lawn mowed and the kid learns how to start a business.
@corail53 Yeah I thought that at first. But after doing some reading and thinking on it, it made more sense. See when you mow your lawn manually you'll do it usually only every other weekend. Maybe every weekend during peak grow season. But then it spends a lot of time either too long or two short. And then most don't mulch because it's just much to leave. BUT with a robomower that runs as often as you like, it's always at a perfect length and with a constant light layer of mulch to fertilize. It's just better for the lawn more than being lazy.
@mikemotorbike4283 Yeah if you got a pretty busy lawn that can be an issue. Just got to keep it clear, same as for mnaual mowing. Doesn't need to be perfectly flat though, it's pretty small actually and can handle decent inclines.
Really good video Reed, it seems to be really cool to be at CES, maybe next year! And also, you talked a lot about matter, do you will make a video soon about it. Also, if we aren’t updating to matter does our current installation that is working with HA will still working?
Continue your good job!!
I’m a Yamaha waverunner engineer. Love this stuff! And love your videos! Ironically just talking about when electric boats will become more of a thing in the market this week.
not ironically, what's ironic about that?; circumstantially, coincidentally, serendipitouslly, synchronistically, apropos, relevantly, surprisingly etc
@mikemotorbike good point.
You an English major?
Submarines and boats have had electric and hybrid drive since the start. This is not really innovative at all, not to mention what happens when a LIPO battery hits saltwater in an accident? That is going to be pretty spectacular.
Concerning the Robo vacuum. Must be loads of fun with the cat! They should even program it to talk to the cat and say things like "move it Fur ball"...
Surprising that it took so long with the inline skates.. only knew Thundrblade or self-made prototypes more than 10 years ago in different forums
Thanks Reed! Did you use Tesla's cars to get around at all? I was wondering how that worked with increased numbers of people. Was CES attendance back up to pre-covid levels?
I used the hyperloop once. I thought it was going to be a super long line to go from the west hall to central but there was literally no one in the morning. I heard it gets more busy during the day and there is a line but I never checked to see how long.
CES attendance was back up to pre-covid levels. Last year I was way too spoiled. I could walk up to any booth and try out any device without waiting. This year had waiting lines to try things and lots of people bumping into me while trying to record video. Haha always a fun challenge!
According to the Las Vegas press, the physical attendance was 112,000 versus the pre-covid 2020 show's 171,000.
Thank you for not doing 1000 videos for coverage. This gave me the convension vibe i didn't even know ces had. Great video
Well balanced view of the cool stuff, even forwarded the video to my dad and wife who are not tech savvy.
I'm not from USA and you have summarized the tech so well - thanks for this. That flame detector is really something I would like.
Something that my mom would have needed when I was a kid in the late 80s xD
i love your videos! i wish i was able to go to ces! thanks for the epic vids!
I’ve seen countless 2023 CES videos and your still featured product I haven’t seen. Keep up the great work man.
Love your CES review, the best I've watched so far
About 13 years ago I was able to go to CES and I loved it.
your videos are always exceptional!
Almost all of your "Appliances with features you really don't need, but they made" ... I'm legitimately putting in my new smart bouse this year 😅
Have been tossing up between the Samsung/LG fridges. I think the Samsung Infinite is going to win out. I haven't got the oven with a camera. I have ordered the LG shoe steamer you glanced over and several of the Kohler shower/bath bits.
...definitely not getting the pee sensor 😂🤣😂
I'm glad you noticed that at least one of these devices has serious privacy implications. But others that you didn't mention do too.
Sadly no one cares about privacy anymore. This whole trade show is a joke.
@corail53 My suspicion is that ultimately the reviewers are paid by the manufacturers, so reviewers are essentially being paid to be silent about privacy and security.
A smart lock thats wirelessly charged with infrared would be the coolest thing, im buying the first one with apple home key. Not changing batteries every few months would be the best
I appreciate how thorough you were.
You forgot to mention the main purpose of Samsung's camera inside the oven, is not just to post your food on social media, is to recognize the food you put on and give you the estimated time it needs to be cooked, just like the June oven. btw the Nba flopping reference was on point lol.
I mean you really should know how long it takes to cook something before you even put it in the oven.
@corail53 I didnt say I dont know, Im just pointing one of the main reasons for the camera in the oven, its just a preset, its not just to take pics for social media
a must have, not this year, but its great to see tech companies trying. Thank You! Whay care about matter ? it probably does not.
Thanks for sharing. I do always wonder about those automated lawnmower, what stops someone stealing it. For the Ring Car Cam. No chance, they have terrible privacy issues, guess they can now share your in car footage. Like they can with the door bell. And not E2E encryption. Is the VR Muzzle the new covid mask. LMAO. You imagine just thinking, nah today I'll have a blue color on my car, hmm maybe green. Crazy. I liked the Eve concepts. Love the Yogabook.
the lawnmower had an e sim card so its location would be able to be tracked by gps
@zach moyer Nice. Thanks
@zach moyer Not hard to disable that.
I think this year's CES doesn't seem to have any directly trendy technology that takes up a lot of space. But it seems to be very scattered in directions.
Fantastic CES2023 summary video and narration, Smart Home Solver!
Also the fact that the stand mixer has a scale in it omg!!
Just by looking at the Ring Car Cam seems dystopian right there. Then again, here in NYC, MTA transit has cameras on most buses now since 10 years ago. Good video.
Your videos on CES are hands down the best. Every other video just covers the same 5 things, with bad video quality at that.
Greta shit ma dude, i watch every vid and was looking forward to this.
I couldn't help but notice that CES showcased products with little to no real-life added value. Feels like tech companies really jumped the shark this year. However, I owe it mostly to the macro economy/politics situation around the world, rather than each brand's alleged vision about next gen electronics represented by these trinkets. However, should I be wrong about this, then innovation is ultimately and utterly disconnected from reality.
I've noticed my own disinterest too. I think it may be fatigue dealing with global issues. Our Limbic System identifies potential threats and directs us to address issues relating to feeding, reproduction and caring for our young, and fight or flight responses.
It has always been like this. The internet of things is basically just going in circles at this point. Aka how many ways can we turn on a led.
1.3M views in 8 days is deserved. Most interesting CES coverage I've seen, also beats his videos on this channel.😅😅
Smart bulb question: I'm just trying to find a smart bulb that can schedule its white color (to be warm mornings/evenings and cool midday). That's it. Preferably over 1000 lumens but not required. I've watched all your smart bulb videos already, and I would have thought this would be a basic feature of bulbs, but they all only seem to schedule on/off and not white color.
one of the popular lights that does that- it's scheduled in the app.
@mikemotorbike Which light is a popular light that does that?
Thank you for making this amazing video!
Very entertaining video, I thoroughly enjoyed it!! I loved your video so much that I subscribed to your channel!!😎
Great recap. Nice work!
smart things hub would also be nice if it was a wifi-repeater or AP or something to extend your wifi along with the smart network/new protocol/whatever
As always, great update!
Great coverage and nice to see you again!
Thanks and it was great seeing you there too!
Some people make so many useless tech while others come up with useful tech innovations that change the world😊
i loved your video of last year and now i just searched my youtube history to find your channel. Thanks for the great content
Watching this video explains our chip shortage. Sure was interesting too.
I just got a bespoke Samsung 3-door fridge after watching your video I've been looking online for those digital screens but does the only work on the four door one? It would be a lot cooler if they did! Great vid thx.
I have done the mosquito bite trick for 35 years with a simple lighter. Light tilt for 2-3 secs, apply to bite. WORKS!
Awesome video, all this tech makes me very excited but also kind of scared
The heat resistant camera in the oven is an necessary step to be able to have an AI controlled oven. Next year, we may very well have talking oven which will help you cook and watch your pizza for you.
about time, great idea!
Why would you need an AI oven? You grab food - insert it into oven hit two buttons and you are on your way. We don't need to have all this nonsense in simple things.
@corail53 What if you don't know well that food and you never cooked it? You will watch it yourself? Does the feeling of "doing it yourself" worth the risk of burning your food? When you have a perfectly able personal AI that knows your taste and could watch it for you?
Thank you for not being surface level and covering the same products as everyone else
There's actually a guy that lives not far from me that has a yard robot. I see it often in the summer. Looks nothing like these here. More like a big Roomba that just darts around his yard. First time I seen it I almost ran off the road.
ces is always so cool there so much tech and so much cool things keep up the work
Interesting to see that they really are full diving into matter and away from zigbee and z wave now.. i wonder how much those samsungs hubs will cost now lol
And I love your enthusiasm! Thank you for sharing!
Great report. Very entertaining. Did you see anything that can replace my Nutone whole-home intercom system?
I just bought the S7 ultra on black Friday and now I see that there coming out with another one with even more features, now I want that one🤦
I am surpised you didn't mention the Joieem e-bike that looks like it's straight out of Tron.
The stand mixer and the bathtub were my favorites. Wtf is wrong with me 😂
Thanks great coverage of things I’ll never need or use 😂
Nice! I had hoped to run into you at some point on the floor, but alas, no dice. There's always next year! :-) Great recap!
Great coverage video! Hope to see ya there next year
I remember the days when CES used to actually have NEW technologies. This is embarrassing for humanity.
Great video! You did not go to the Govee booth and review their stuff in detail?
Damn I was working on electronic color changing paint 7 years ago, wish I had a team of engineers
OK, I have to look up that heat it! Great recap, thanks!!
So many cool things!!
Kind of makes me sad that by the time they become the new normal, I'll be gone.
Its not all its cracked up to be. For instance, for guys, it complicates being able to pee anywhere we want. Women may get annoyed everytime 911 is called because it detects stress in the voice. And they are experimenting with subcutaneous scull and hand chips in Florida and the southern States.
There is nothing cool here. This is basically the same crap that has been there the past few years.
The shade he threw with a light switch 😂😂😂😂
AI motion cams do raise privacy concerns and the u-scan can be useful for people who have history of kidney issues and of course kidney stones. Kidney stones are the most painful and annoying annoyance to anyone.
Great ... now I have to worry about ruining servos when decalcifying my shower head 😕
your videos are BANGER!
Best video I’ve seen yet of the show! Thanks!
Asilla - liked the product but rather than for security would it also work for someone living alone who collapses?
i wish i could go to ces but that means i have to fly halfway across the world :(
this duble screen laptop looks awesome
The voice muffling device is the best!!. Wish I'd thought about it
