Sleep robot, foldable smartphones and more

Here are our favourite technologies/innovations from the Consumer Electronics Show 2019. By KRISHNA SINHA CHAUDHARY

Reading Time: 2 minutesFrom a Sleep Robot that breathes along with you to make you sleep better, to a burger made from reconstituted plant matter or a robotic companion dog that has life-like movements — the biggest tech show on Earth in Las Vegas this year had a lot to offer.
There were 24 product categories and those exhibited at the Consumer Electronics Show 2019 (CES) ranged from audio products, such as record players to robotics, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Virtual Reality (VR) devices that essentially indicate what technology production and consumption would take shape in the years to come.
Here are our favourites:
The new Impossible Burger 2.0: An example of advancing food engineering, the Impossible Burger hogged more than just limelight at the CES in Las Vegas. Said to be the most incredible “innovation”, this hamburger is made from reconstituted plant matter.

The Impossible Burger 2.0 is the new-and-improved version of the company’s original plant-based burger that left the crowd stunned with its smell, texture, flavour and colour — almost like a real hamburger.
Sleep Robot by Somnox: Somnox’s “Sleep Robot” is essentially a sleep device that is said to help its users sleep faster, longer and wake up feeling refreshed.

It is a peanut-shaped device that simulates the breathing of a human and its chassis lowers and rises, which almost imitates a human chest as it breathes. It is said to relax users and help them doze off in a jiffy.
Robo-puppy AIBO: Sony introduced a refreshed version of its AIBO robot dog at CES that highlights hardware and AI perfectly coming together.

The new AIBO is said to be the most realistic and advanced Sony has ever created. It is a reboot of the robot dog the company first launched in 1999 and laid to rest in 2006.
World’s first rollable OLED TV: LG Electronics unveiled the world’s first rollable OLED TV in which the screen retracts into a box when not in use.

Built on a concept that was unveiled in 2018, the 65-inch Signature OLED TV R will be available this year for sale, the company has announced.
Royole FlexPai, a foldable smartphone: Officially announced late in 2018, the Royole FlexPai was unveiled at CES this year. This “phone” is actually has a large tablet-sized display and only once it is folded inwards that it starts to look more like a phone.

And finally, this little genius that folds laundry, right from your shirts to towels. Who needs this? Everyone?
