  1. VR gym

VR systems have been very popular over the years and in this year CES trade-show it seems like VR is continually growing and is not hopping to stop.

VR has been extremely popular within the gaming industry and this week’s CES event there could be potential interest within the health and fitness industry.

Creators of the next level of immersive experiences are Black Box VR that introduced the first ever fully immersive VR gym experience at this week’s event. Using HTC Vive and proprietary exercise hardware that turns working out into a video game like experience. The company hopes that the user will immerse in a whole new way to get fit and that it will make them never want to visit a normal gym again. The process starts by entering in a 8 ft x 8 ft black box, attach to a HTC Vive headset and motion-tracking forearm bands, the user will immerse in another world where the brain will perceive greater limitations which will maximize fitness results through using AI and adaptive workout routines.  Although, this idea seems far from being a new way to workout, it ultimately depends on the user style of doing fitness.

  1. DeepFrame

In the past couple of years we’ve only known of a couple of products that use Augmented Reality, with popular apps like Pokemon Go and AR headsets like Microsoft HoloLens, Meta 2 and Magic Leap this type of technology hasn’t been a big hit as it should. At this year CES trade show, company Realfiction has introduced the first AR reflective glass display, a large 64-inch screen called DeepFrame. It uses optics that are capable of projecting images/videos that appear to be in the real world, unlike the previous head worn headsets this screen is accessible to a whole group of people within the same room.

A product like this one could change the way students and teachers interact at school, or it could change the way we interact inside stores, from clothing to car shopping to making museum visits more interactive. RealFiction hopes this technology opens a door moving towards the digital world and  be used to interact digital objects, characters and the real world in all one same spot. CEO Clas Dyrholm said potential buyers could expect a price of $50,000 to $60,000 for the Deepframe. It beyond clear that the average person would not purchase this product but it could be a significant investment in schools, museums, stores that would want to make their user experience more valuable.

3.VR drone

Continuing in the realm of VR technology and highlighting how VR is here to stay, drones are another tech that continues to grow and extend the possibilities within tech.

Drones were used initially in military for anti-aircraft target practice, intelligence gathering, now, they are also used in a wide range of civilian activities like personal videography, surveillance and traffic and weather monitoring. At this week’s CES French startup Drone Interactive showcased a prototype technology that the company aspires could be a big hit within arcade and theme parks a like.

The idea is that users use a real life drone within a virtual reality world experience. The players would put on the VR headset and use standard xbox controllers to control the real drone within the VR game. Depending on the game experience the drone could benefit or harm the players user interactivity within the game. The prototype is in the early stages of showcasing what’s the real purpose of this product, but it’s an idea that could potentially work within the entertainment industry if its well developed.

  1. Whirlpool Smart Kitchen

Although we’ve already mentioned incredible tech products from this year’s CES tech event,  The Whirlpool Smart Kitchen is nothing like we’ve ever mentioned before. It is quite a big surprise that a home appliance would have made it to our list, but it is an incredible product that could not be missed.

Back in 2017, Whirpool the world’s largest home appliance maker bought over company Yummly a visual and semantic recipe search engine with over 20 million users. These 2 companies partnered in doing Yummly 2.0 app a real game changer to the future of  home cooking.

Using advanced image recognition technology (AI) to recommend recipes based on the ingredients users have on their fridge, streamline grocery shopping and meal prep with scheduling features, step-by-step recipes, including video tutorials, timers, and more handy tools to make cooking super easy. The appliance is still a few months away, but even when it gets here, it's going to be at the higher end of the price spectrum. Just know that in a couple years kitchen could potentially take care of our home cooking experiences.

  1. Laundroid 

In our #1 spot for the best, most innovative product at the 2018 CES trade-show has to be for Laundroid. A $16,000 artificial intelligence-powered laundry-folding machine that just like it sounds it automatically folds your clothes.

Laundroid design is strikingly beautiful, with sleek mirrored finishes that would look good in any room . It uses various robotic arms to pick up the clothes, which are then scanned by cameras. It’s connected by Wi-Fi to a server that uses artificial intelligence to analyze the piece from a network containing 256,000 images of different clothing items. Then the robot arms determine how it should be folded. Folding a full load of laundry would take a couple hours as only one piece of clothing could takes about 5–10 minutes to fold. I think I’ll rather fold my own clothes for now but now we know folding automation is not as far as we think is it is.
