The highly anticipated virtual reality headsets are likely to make news. Oculus, HTC, Samsung and Sony could introduce their latest innovations. Microsoft could also decide to demonstrate its HoloLens virtual reality headset, first seen in October at a press conference when it showcased a hologram-based combat game. This headset is planned to be offered to developers in the first half of 2016 so they can create games and apps specifically for this new technology.

Connected objects

Unsurprisingly, internet-connected watches are also likely to attract a lot of attention. Manufacturers such as Pebble, LG and maybe even Samsung could bring us a new generation of models at CES. FitBit could also have some new products on show. Generally speaking, some improvements need to be made to fitness trackers -- such as increasing accuracy -- to win over the general public.

TVs

Every CES sees a slew of spectacular new TVs which in the past have included the first curved OLED screens in 2013 and the demonstrations of 8K TVs in 2014. As Sharp has just launched its first 8K TV, the trend is set to grow, with more new models likely to be revealed in Las Vegas, although there is no listing available yet for this format. We should therefore expect to see more of the 8K and the curved screen trends at CES 2016.

Special guests

Many keynote speeches are also planned with a string of CEOs already confirmed as special guests, including Won Pyo Hong (Samsung), Brian Krzanich (Intel), Reed Hastings (Netflix) and Robert Kyncl (YouTube).

CES takes place Jaunary 6 to 9, 2016 in Las Vegas. Find out more at .
