Vaccination growing around the world (not so much in the United States), better health control and decreasing Covid-19 cases were positive signs for CES 2022 and companies participating in the fair. However, at the end of November 2021 the WHO warned of the emergence of a concern variant of the coronavirus. AMD, Intel, Nvidia, Facebook and Google were some of the companies that canceled attendance at the event.

Even with these measures mentioned in the title of this topic, which are fundamental measures to prevent the spread of the virus, most of the public from CES 2022 did not appear. And of the companies that appeared, some preferred to exhibit their products in a disappointing way, as was the case with LG and its gigantic stand with QR codes for fair attendees to see the product through augmented reality. Check the stories from the Connected World the Jacson Boeing showing the LG stand. The situation is that with big names outside the CES 2022 in person, many journalists and other participants preferred to return with “Stay at Home”.
Come on: wouldn’t it be much nicer to see what the Facebook would have to show your products to the metaverse? It’s not “fuzzy” to arrive at a giant stand from LG and see only QR codes and no live 98-inch TV? Now check out some photos taken by Wikerson Landim straight from CES 2022.
