CES is still equal parts mainstream tech that you can buy soon, and futuristic tech that looks amazing but won’t necessarily hit the market for some time.

InWith’s smart contact lens falls firmly on the latter camp – although I really hope it ends up in my eyes before long. Billed as “potentially the most advanced platform for viewing the next metaverse,” it will apparently offer “adjustable vision” via a mobile device and “augmented vision” – which sounds appropriately Cyberpunk-esque to turn me on.

InWith says he plans to get breakthrough clearance from the FDA this year and bring the lenses to market shortly thereafter, so I will look with interest (through my unfortunately unintelligent contact lenses).

Granted, at 89 inches the new Samsung MicroLED TV isn’t much small, but it’ll be a lot easier to find room than last year’s 99 and 110-inch models, not to mention the first 146-inch version of The Wall TV. from 2019.

Size aside, the MicroLED TV promises to be a nice addition to Samsung’s 2022 lineup. It has a million micro-sized LEDs, offering a 10% wider color offering, and is also expected to have improved audio performance thanks to support for Dolby Atmos and Object Tracking Sound Pro.
