CES 2017 Day 3: Gaming Laptops, 4K TV Boxes, Smart Beds and More - LIVE UPDATES
- 06 Jan, 2017
Robots are a big part of CES every year, and 2017 is no different. Stealing the show this year is Kuri the adorable house robot! He isn't just a pretty face, with smart processors, cameras behind his eyes and live streaming capability so he can keep watch in your house while you're out. He'll respond to sound and touch too, and will display a coloured light that reflects his emotions. If he runs low on charge, he'll automatically take himself off for a power nap at his charging unit. If it's all sounding a bit like Wall-E, that might be because Kuri's designer is an ex-Pixar employee who worked on that film!
World First: Tri-Screen Laptop
Gaming laptop specialists Razer have raised (or should that be widened) the bar with their gorgeous triple-screen laptop. The two additional screens slide out from behind the main display automatically, giving you a display unlike any other laptop on the market right now. Named Project Valerie, it's only a prototype at this stage, but in the high-end gaming market, this could well be a game changer.
If you're having trouble getting the perfect mattress, or you always want the cold side of the pillow, this gadget could well be the bed of your dreams (sorry...). The Sleep Number 360 learns your sleeping habits and patterns and tracks how you move in your sleep. It can then automatically adjust mattress firmness, support, angle and temperature to name but a few configurations, meaning you can drift off in peace.
4K TV Boxes
There's been a lot of buzz about the new breed of TVs this year so naturally many companies are trying to follow that with the very latest in TV Box technology. One impressive model is the Nvidia Shield and its voice-controlled assistant Nvidia Spot, which offers full 4K capabilities as well as an Android OS for apps and other handy functions.
