3M at CES 2023 Las Vegas


CES is dubbed as the world's most influential tech event

The annual proving ground for brands and their breakthrough technologies, CES, will be held in Las Vegas during the first week of January. Nearly 200,000 people are expected to attend to see new products, hear from industry experts, and gain insight into future trends.

3M will be exhibiting a wide range of its technologically advanced products and solutions from a variety of industries.

Here are some of the 3M innovations being showcased at CES:

VR will have a significant presence at CES 2023. 3M is assisting in the transformation of the VR industry by innovating on centuries-old optical technologies to reduce headset size and improve image quality. ByteDance, the manufacturer of PICO VR headsets, will collaborate with 3M to showcase this new technology at 3M's booth.

Medical wearables
Another collaboration will take place at CES with Epicore Biosystems, a leading digital health company. The Gatorade Gx Sweat Patch was developed in collaboration with 3M and Epicore. In addition, Epicore recently unveiled its new Connected Hydration sweat patch and mobile app, the first wearable to continuously measure sweat fluid and electrolyte losses while monitoring skin temperature and movement. 3M supplied several medical-grade materials for both wearables because the company is widely recognised as a leader in skin-interfacing adhesives.

Electric Vehicles
Automotive is one of the most appealing themes at CES. 3M is a trusted partner of several vehicle manufacturers and will highlight a variety of EV technologies. Perhaps the most significant advancements will be in EV batteries. 3M provides a wide range of solutions to improve battery performance, including thermal management, assembly, insulation, and more.

Hybrid work culture
The hybrid work culture is here to stay, and new technologies are required to support it. In late 2022, 3M and Microsoft released the Post-it® App for Teams, a digital whiteboard that allows hybrid teams to collaborate, create, and act in a simple and intuitive manner. 3M will be live demoing the app for CES attendees at its booth.

CES also hosts world-class speakers and panels. 3M's chief science advocate, Jayshree Seth, will participate in a panel discussion titled "The Era of Sustainability in Consumer Electronics." Jayshree will speak alongside a panel of industry experts about how businesses are embracing sustainability in novel and creative ways.
