The Consumer Electronics Fair (CES 2019), the heart of the world of technology, ended a few day ago. There are interesting, strange, and sometimes scary technologies left behind.
Some will be the indispensable part of our lives in the next few years, some will shape our future, others will just stay in the concept stage and never see the day. However, they can all be seen as important steps for our future. Even if it does not provide direct benefits, at least giving us insights about the future shows that these technologies should not be thrown away.
Let’s take a look at the most creative and crazy products that stand out in CES 2019.
LG Signature Rollable TV
LG’s highly anticipated rollable television was one of the most noticeable products at CES 2019. LG has not shown exactly how the folding mechanism works, but it has proven that technology is finally working.
Foldimate Laundry Folding Bot
One of the simplest but most effective technologies of CES 2019 was the Foldimate laundry folding machine. The device was originally introduced three years ago, but it was the first time that the working and the closest version to the mass production were shown. The company is preparing to launch its laundry folder from $ 1,000 some time around this year.
Royole Flexable QWERTY Keyboard
CES 2019 was a fair where folding and flexible materials were bravely used and exhibited in plenty. Folding TVs, phones and keyboards have shown that a very flexible future awaits us. Royole also introduced a flexible, folding and transparent QWERTY keyboard that works with Bluetooth connectivity and can be used on any surface. The price is unclear but the flexable keyboard is expected to be in the market in the second quarter of 2019.
Y-Brush Smart Toothbrush
Introduced last year, Y-Brush smart toothbrush was introduced as a finished product in CES 2019. This clever toothbrush needs 10 seconds to clean your teeth. You put the toothbrush in your mouth and then press the button. In order to ensure full cleaning while the vibrating motor is running, you need to mimic the chewing movement. It is possible to pre-order the device which is expected to roll out in April.
Hupnos Anti Snoring Sleep Mask
Hupnos smart sleep mask, a strange device that put an end to snoring problems. The mask works in conjunction with a mobile app that listens to you while you’re asleep to see if you’re snoring. When it detects snoring, it uses its accelerometer to determine your sleeping position and vibrates to move your body to a less snore-inducing position. If the problem is not solved, expiratory Positive Airway Pressure (EPAP) increases when you breathe to open your airways and stop snoring.
The hype has been around for a long time but CES was the first time Livewire finally got a price and pre-order availability. Harley-Davidson’s first electric motorcycle is now available to preorder form $ 29,799.
Samsung’s Cute Trio
Samsung jumped into the bandwagon of assistant robots. Samsung’s three cute robots serve users in different areas of life. While Bot Air cleans the air in your environment by circulating air, Bot Care takes care of your health by monitoring your breath while you sleep. Bot Retail serves as a smart cabinet for food and beverage.
Bell Nexus Flying Taxi
We couldn’t think of CES without flying cars of course. Bell’s full-scale flying taxi prototype took all the attention. Bell Nexus will be the most important part of Uber’s flying taxi fleet in the future. The company will begin testing in 2020 and it is expected to be around in the mid-2020s.
Hyundai Elevate Walking Car
Hyundai surprised everyone with a different mobility solution while everyone was running after flying cars. The company’s “walking car” concept will be used in search and rescue operations in the future. The car will also provide transport services for people with mobility problems within the city.
