The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) has kicked off in Las Vegas in the US with dizzying new and innovative technology on display at the annual event.
CES gives companies a chance to showcase their newest gadgets.
While CES will have a number of themes, there will be a lot of focus on TV’s, personal health, artificial intelligence, smart homes and 5G technology.
Some of the innovation and tech that have inspired this year include Loreal who have created a smart system personalizing skincare. There is also a cute little comfort robot called Qooboo which has been a hit and Hachi Infinite which projects touch screens onto any surface.
Other innovative tech includes a TV that rotates to play vertical videos, food shopping based on your DNA and a trash can that ties up its own garbage among others.
Transportation is also being featured at CES with the Manta5 Hydrofoil Bike which is part bike and part plane. The e-bike is designed to mimic cycling, but on water — and it has a fully waterproof battery and motor while Segway S-Pod is designed for enclosed spaces like airports and malls. It can go up to 24 miles per hour, and passengers are able to control the speed with a knob.
While oral health at CES includes the Oral-B iO electric toothbrush features a sensor to let users know they are brushing too hard or just right, Impossible Foods also showcased some of their salivating dishes including a vegan line.
The battle for televisions also has raised a lot of attention with Samsung unveiling an extra-large 8K TV for 2020, which includes picture-in-picture and 14 different layouts.
After a 28-year hiatus, Apple is also making an official appearance at CES with Jane Horvath, senior director of global privacy speaking on a panel Tuesday.
