Here at Gizmodo, we've been keeping track of everything we can, and while we might not be able to pinpoint every single rising star before the show starts, we've got more than enough info to highlight a number of major trends that are going to define this year's CES.

Other unusual tech on the CES 2018 show floor include the Moodo, a smart device for dispensing customized home fragrances; the Kolibree Magik AR toothbrush to help children learn proper brushing technique; and the Care OS smart mirror, which can take selfies, play music, and provide skin-care tips.

Start-ups and smaller firms will also use CES as a chance to gain much-needed exposure and investment, with more than 800 small businesses set to exhibit in the Eureka Park area of the convention.

Spending on consumer electronics devices and streaming services in the U.S. alone was expected to climb slightly more than 3 percent this year to $351 billion, with the number of "connected" devices in the country rising to 715 million from 671 million last year. Will your next shower head be an Alexa, Bixby or Google Assistant?

"We will truly be able to converse with our AI devices", Rohrbaugh said while envisioning where smart speaker technology was heading.

"These devices are growing rapidly with lots of consumer interest", said Mike Vorhaus, president of Magid Advisors consultancy.

While the United States is focused on transportation (specifically self-driving cars, less so public transit) countries in Europe are more concerned with things like energy conservation, says Koenig.

The sports zone will bring together trends that have appeared at CES over the years: wearables, augmented reality, sensors and apps for quantifying physical activity. Like always, companies are going to be showing off their fancy new sets that you'll be drooling about in January, but will have to wait until Black Friday so you can actually afford them. This year, as a result of AI, voice ports, and innovative detectors, robots are inching closer to getting used. That is because the focus has changed from the most recent vehicle design and the way in which they drive to the tech inside. That will include things like low-latency mobile broadband in your vehicle.

Of course, some of us use more than one.
