1. LG Rollable smartphone

1. LG Rollable smartphone: It seems like LG is revolutionizing the smartphone industry with its new Rollable phone that was unveiled at CES 2021. The LG Rollable phone will feature a flexible OLED display, which as the phone's name suggests, will be able to roll inside the housing of the phone when the user needs a normal-sized phone experience, also making it pocketable. When the user is after a more tablet-like experience, the same display can be rolled out of the housing to essentially turn the LG Rollable phone into a tablet.

2. Samsung’s  Bot Handy Robot

2. Samsung’s Bot Handy Robot: Samsung revealed a unique robot at CES 2021 that can pick up laundry, load the dishwasher, set the table, pour wine, and even bring you a drink. The robot is called Bot Handy, and Samsung says it’ll be able to recognize objects using a camera and AI.

3. AirPop Active+ Smart Mask

3. AirPop Active+ Smart Mask: AirPop introduced the Active+ Smart Mask, calling it the first air wearable in the market. Its built-in Halo sensor connects to an app that monitors breathing behavior, breathing cycles, and even the amount of pollutants blocked by the mask. AirPop's new mask comes with specially-designed replaceable, disposable filters that block more than 99% of particulates, including dust, allergens and microbial particles.

4. Targus UV-C LED Disinfection Light

4. Targus UV-C LED Disinfection Light: This ultraviolet lamp sits above your keyboard and mouse (or anything else you’d like clean) and will automatically eliminate 99.9 percent of viruses and bacteria by running for five minutes every hour. It’s motion-sensitive, so it’ll automatically shut off if you return to your desk before the disinfection is done.

5. Mercedes-Benz MBUX Hyperscreen

5. Mercedes-Benz MBUX Hyperscreen: Mercedes-Benz revealed in this year's virtual CES its largest human-machine interface (HMI) ever, the MBUX Hyperscreen. Slated to launch in the upcoming EQS flagship electric sedan, the Hyperscreen stretches the full width of the dashboard to stuff three screens into one continuous frame. It combines unique electrical aesthetics with outstanding user-friendliness. A decisive strength is the clever networking of all systems based on intelligent, adaptive software. This makes the Hyperscreen the brain of the car; it’s connected to and communicates with all components of the vehicle.

6. Panasonic Automotive AI-enhanced AR HUD

6. Panasonic Automotive AI-enhanced AR HUD: Panasonic’s automotive branch showcased a new Augmented Reality (AR) head-up display system at CES this year. It uses AI technology from Panasonic’s SPYDR cockpit domain controller to render both near-field and far-field content when it comes to vehicle information (like speed), but also objects, pedestrian detection and of course mapping/route guidance. The goal here is to keep drivers more engaged and informed.
