Every year CES brings us an array of gadgets that make us all jealous that we can fly out to American and play with everything. This year is no different. While there are hundreds of blog posts and thought pieces on how this years tech will change the world, we wanted something a little bit more fun. So without further ado we look at the gadgets we want from this years CES.
It’s a clock with a difference; it doesn’t have an alarm. Instead, it uses scents to wake you up. Pop a coffee scented pod in and bang, wake up and smell the coffee. The idea sounds great but I think I’d need more than a sniff of a croissant (an actual scent you can buy) to get me up in the morning.
Why go to a bar for cocktails when you can your own personal mixologist in your kitchen? It’s what the drinks market needs, but I fear I’ll be making espresso martinis in the morning instead of coffee.
We’ve always had a soft spot for wearables and written about how they might affect recruitment, now Fitbit releasing their new model; Blaze. Its colour touchscreen and on-screen workouts give other wearables a run for their money (no pun intended). While it looks like an Apple Watch the Blaze has some improved features including an improved heart rate tracking that now records more frequently when tracking in multi-sport modes and three pre-installed workouts. It looks a lot smarter and more functional than previous models. Pre-order it here for £159.99
It’s not a new piece of tech, but we still want it. Chances are you already know all about Oculus Rift so we won’t bother writing anything. But you’ll be happy to know it’s available for pre-order and they won’t take your money until they ship the device later this year.
It’s an outdoor stove that can cook a meal in just 10 minutes using the sun’s as a source of power. The GoSun Stove absorbs heat from the sun and can even reach temperatures of over 290°C! No more tinned beans when your camping, the stove can cook fish, muffins, stir-fries, raw meat and omelettes. We want it.
Gadgets are usually two things: expensive and unnecessary. Rollable TVs are no exception, Pretty pointless but just watch the video below and we guarantee you’ll want one.
