CES 2024 Day 1: What's New From Samsung and CES Unveiled

The annual CES event kicks off this week, and we sent MacRumors videographer Dan Barbera to hunt down cool new products and technologies that are being previewed this year. CES officially starts tomorrow, but Dan attended CES Unveiled last night, and was able to get an early look at devices from Samsung,


Samsung showed off new OLED TVs with an updated anti-reflective coating that makes them much better in bright rooms and with reflective lights, plus there was a new 8K projector and some very impressive transparent OLED screens.

Samsung had a neat 2D/3D display that uses cameras and eye tracking to display content in 3D without the need for glasses, and Dan was also impressed with a customizable music frame that holds artwork but also serves as a speaker for a subtle surround sound system.

At Unveiled, Dan checked out a pet-focused robot vacuum and mop combo from Narwhal, Belkin's Qi2 wireless chargers and StandDock Pro, a Keurig sort of device for ice cream, and some retro Mac power adapters from Sharge.

Make sure to watch the full video to see the products in action, and stay tuned to MacRumors because we'll be sharing CES videos and articles for the next few days.

Am I the only one that is genuinly excited about the glasses-free 3D monitor?! It's basically a giant Nintendo 3DS, including the eye-tracking. I hope it works well, I am honestly quite intrigued by it.

The see-through micro-LED screen is fascinating tech, but I'm not sure of the use-case scenario besides virtual overlays (like the sporting events they briefly mentioned). I guess if you linked four together in the shape of a box, you could create a heck of a virtual aquarium.

I was thinking if you sandwiched several, maybe hundreds, of these panels together, you could create a 3d/holographic image that could be viewed from different angles, and from the back perhaps.. Maybe the sides, too?

Totally unfeasible in its current state and probably a silly idea.. ?

Wandering if that ice cream has no milk in it
Yeah, I bet it's not really ice cream. It's a frozen concoction likely made from corn by-products.

Ice Cream! Did he say Ice Cream? Ya, I'm in, in, in. It will be the next addition to the camper. Great for those hot days after the lake and assorted shenanigans he he.
