Roll-up TV? Self-driving Suitcase? Let’s see 6 of the coolest Products at CES 2019!
CES 2019, the tech industry’s biggest annual conference. As is tradition, technology companies from around the world have flocked to Las Vegas for the annual Consumer Electronics Show, the week-long showcase of the year’s upcoming products and services.
Stunning TVs, tricked out cars, giant drones and tiny gadgets dominate the show floor. There are thousands of eye-catching items to swoon over, whether you’re a nerd or not. Here are a few of the most interesting, exciting and possibly life-changing products seen at the show, which runs from Tuesday to Friday.
A self-driving follow-along suitcase
The suitcase that follows you like a puppy has been a long-running CES fantasy. This one, from a company called ForwardX, looks the closest to actually delivering. Cameras all over it identify you — as opposed to a someone else passing by — and then lock on and follow you at up to 6 miles per hour, avoiding obstacles along the way. (The company also put the same tech into a lawn mower.) You can wear a companion wristband that vibrates if your suitcase strays too far.
A TV that unrolls itself
You thought your curved TV was cool? The LG Signature OLED TV R is a 65-inch 4K TV that is, unlike your lame and rigid screen, rollable, and can retract into its base when you’re not enjoying it. While you can control it using either Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa, the TV R also supports Apple’s AirPlay 2 and HomeKit. The TV R’s base also hides a Dolby Atmos sound system for audiophiles who want the latest in home theater tech.
Laptops with cutting-edge graphics
Gaming laptops aren’t new, but they usually lack power compared to their beefier desktop counterparts. Nvidia’s latest announcement changes that, and brings the desktop-class power found in its RTX line of graphics cards to laptops. More than 40 laptop models will debut by the end of the month with RTX graphics cards inside, which use a rendering technique known as ray tracing to produce more realistic graphics and boost performance for the most demanding gamers.
A sleep band that tracks your brain
If sleeping is harder than it should be, the Dreem band might be able to help you figure out what you’re doing wrong. The Dreem band is a fabric-covered headband that wraps around your head and uses a combination of sensors like the ones in your Apple Watch to detect various biometrics like your heart rate and and respiration activity. It also uses bone conduction to communicate audio cues to you privately, meaning your partner won’t be bothered by your gadget’s beeping.
A kettlebell that keeps you honest
JAXJOX’s $349 KettlebellConnect is a smart, adjustable kettlebell that tracks your movements using built-in motion sensors to measure your workout’s “integrity.” When paired with the companion app, which also features a catalog of workout content, you can see just how thorough your reps were, meaning you can’t half-ass your lunges and claim a good day’s exercise.
A music-blasting, Alexa-enabled toilet
If you thought adding a bidet to your current commode was the pinnacle of bathroom luxury, Kohler’s here to help you elevate your standards. The Numi 2.0 Intelligent Toilet is a $7,000 commode that goes all-in on the smart home concept. It bundles Amazon Alexa functionality, integrated Bluetooth speakers, ambient lighting and a hands-free open/close lid. It also has a remote if you don’t want to talk to your toilet in the middle of the night. If you’re wondering about the Numi 2.0’s primary functionality, it boasts heated seats, a warm air dryer, a stainless steel wand and adjustable water temperature.
Though fewer Chinese exhibitors showing up than last year, Chinese firms still account for more than a quarter of the conference’s 4,500 exhibitors, second only to the U.S. in sheer numbers. Some of the biggest names are taking a more subdued approach, but of course, plenty of Chinese entrepreneurs are still eager to show off their innovations.
“China’s superiority is a larger market, more data, and very tenacious and hardworking entrepreneurs.” said venture capitalist Kai-Fu Lee.
