If you’re curious about the new gadgets that were unveiled at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, here’s a summary of some of the highlights that you might want to explore.

Loona – Intelligent Petbot

Are you fond of the idea of owning a pet, but detest the mess that comes along with it? Or, perhaps your living situation prevents you from having one? Loona could be the solution you’re looking for. Its developer touts it as “the most intelligent petbot” and is currently seeking funding through a Kickstarter campaign.

Loona, the adorable motorized pseudo pet, has a range of capabilities. It can greet you and even accompany you as you walk, while also being able to sneeze, scratch, and perform other actions similar to that of a real pet. Additionally, like a dog or cat, Loona is curious and will investigate unfamiliar objects. However, what sets Loona apart is its unique talents, which include beatboxing, posing for pictures, and dancing – abilities that are not typically seen in real pets.

Ring Car Cam

Among the many consumer IoT devices showcased at CES, the Ring Car Cam caught people’s attention and is now available for purchase on Amazon.

Taking inspiration from the widely popular doorbell cam, this compact video camera is designed for use on the road. Equipped with dual-facing cameras, it can capture both in-car and on-road footage. Additionally, the device features two-way talk functionality, enabling drivers to communicate with loved ones at home. It also boasts motion detection capabilities and can issue real-time motion alerts.

For those seeking an adrenaline rush, AtmosGear has introduced an electric inline roller skate that is set to be released in May 2023.

The device, which was showcased at CES, can reach speeds of up to 25 km/h (15.5 MPH) and can fully charge in about an hour. Interestingly, the skate itself is a motorized frame that can be attached to any roller boots

Tilt Five Augmented Reality Glasses

For those eager to explore the possibilities of augmented reality (AR) beyond the realm of video games, Tilt Five has introduced an AR glasses system that connects to a computer.

The system is versatile and can be used with both board games and video games. By combining the glasses with a board game, users can bring a holographic element to their tabletop play. The glasses resemble heavy-duty safety glasses and work in tandem with the board game to create an augmented reality experience in the physical world.
