In other words, talk of the metaverse and virtual (augmented, hybrid, whatever you want to call it for dummies) goggles will continue in 2023, but it likely still won’t be research firm Creative Strategies Consumer technology analyst Carolina Milanesi said these headsets have been wildly popular this year.
“From a consumer standpoint, when you’re buying headphones, you’re still not sure what you’re paying $1,000 for,” she said. “Do I have to hold meetings in VR? with or without legs, which is not required. “
3. Electric cars that surpass Tesla
Tesla continues to dominate EV sales this year, but 2023 could prove to be an inflection point for the industry.Tesla shares have plummeted this year, its Brand takes a hit Since Mr. Musk took over Twitter. Meanwhile, competition is intensifying as EV makers including Ford Motor, Kia Motors, General Motors, Audi and Rivian ramp up production of EVs.
Additionally, Tesla said in November that it would open its charging port design to other EVs. That would allow drivers of other types of cars to top up their batteries at Tesla’s charging stations, which are far more numerous than other types of chargers.

4. More options for social media
Twitter has been in disarray for most of 2022, and that’s likely to continue in the coming year. In response to the backlash, Mr Musk asked his Twitter followers in this month’s “poll” whether they should resign as company leader. A majority (roughly 10 million users) voted yes, but Musk said he would only resign if he found someone “dumb enough to take the job.”
TikTok is also in trouble after its Chinese parent company, ByteDance, said an internal investigation found employees had improperly obtained data on U.S. users, including that of two journalists. The disclosure has put pressure on the Biden administration to consider more extreme restrictions on the app in the United States.
