CES closes one day early on Friday due to concerns over Omicron surge Updated: 2022-01-09 09:42:22 KST

After displaying some of the newest tech and gadgets, this year's Consumer Electronics Show closed its doors on Friday local time.
Though only half of the usual exhibitors took part in the event, and the Friday conclusion is a day earlier than initially planned, the show was still full of innovative, cutting-edge technologies.
All the sectors were full of technological marvels. Among them was the world's first color-changing car introduced by BMW, which uses E Ink technology to produce fluid color changes that completely transform the car's exterior into various colors and patterns.

"This is the world's first real color-changing car. There's been fakes out there, there's been projection mapping, there's been light, but this is really energy-efficient color change using the technology E Ink. It's never been done before, so this is a proof of concept."

Also making a big splash was the humanoid robot 'Ameca,' which can make hyper-real human facial gestures using ground-breaking advancements in Artificial Intelligence and motor movement.
The U.K.'s Engineered Arts says it tried to make the most expressive robot ever.

This year has been significant for South Korea too.
Around five-hundred Korean companies participated both online and offline, making South Korea the second-biggest exhibitor following the U.S.' with 13-hundred companies in attendance.
Samsung boasted the largest-scale booth among exhibitors showcasing new TV products like the neo-QLED and micro-LED, and unveiling a portable beam projector called "the Freestyle" designed to overcome the physical constraints of TVs and bring the screen experience everywhere.
Meanwhile, Hyundai wowed visitors with their presentation on the future of mobility.
Defining the concept of "metamobility", the carmaker suggested robots could become the medium to connect humans to the metaverse enabling humans to move freely between real life and virtual space.

Presenting the latest innovations in all sectors, including space tech, CES revealed the infinite possibilities of technology.
