Samsung CES 2022 Keynote Recap

It's CES time, and some day I'll get there, until then I get to sit here and watch the speeches, and peruse through the media releases.  

Samsung launched into CES with their Keynote "Together for Tomorrow" and there was a lot discussed on their networking of the smart appliances with Home Hub, and screens, but throughout a big thing was their concern for the environment.  

My takeaway was the 'well d'uh why didn't that happen sooner' was the solarcell remote.  

A remote that not only recharges by solar, but also uses stray radio frequencies (wonder how that works and if it interferes in someway).  Imagine living in a world without having to find AA or AAA batteries!  Awesome.

Yesterday, Samsung Electronics kicked off CES 2022 with a pre-show keynote address under the theme of ‘Together for Tomorrow’, delivered by JH Han, Vice Chairman, CEO and Head of Samsung Electronics’ Device eXperience Division. 

Through greater customization, inclusive connected technology and powerful collaborations, Samsung is working towards real-world change. Below is a list of the key devices and initiatives shared during the Keynote:
