i3 | January/February

i3 looks at advances in 5G, farming, virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) mixed reality (XR) and extended reality (XR) to see the crossover between entertainment and enterprise applications. We also look at how gaming technologies like blockchain, NFTs and GameFi, are creating new metaverses, and take a forward glimpse at robotics, streaming video and 2022 tech trends. And because CES is all about entrepreneurs, we highlight the CES 2022 Innovation Award honorees.
