Oh, I didn't even know they were doing it this year. I didn't even bother creating a thread for it.

Samsung is making a robot that can pour wine and bring you a drink

https://www.theverge...robots-ces-2021


Samsung is working on a robot 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.
 
The bot is meant to be “an extension of you in the kitchen, living room, and anywhere else you may need an extra hand in your home,” Sebastian Seung, president of Samsung Research, said during Samsung’s CES press conference today.
 
For now, it’s not clear how close Bot Handy is to being a real, shipping product. Samsung didn’t announce a price or release window, and the company has previously used CES to show off futuristic-looking robots that are more of a concept than a real product. The robot is described as being “in development.”

Yep, TCL also showed a rollable phone concept at CES 2021

LG isn't the only major electronics maker experimenting with rollable devices. At its CES press conference on Monday, TCL once again showed an update of its rollable in action, releasing a new video of the concept device expanding and retracting in a woman's hands. 
Not much is known about the device, but TCL's Tiago Abreu, head of the "X-Lab" at the TCL Industrial Design Center, says in the video that it can go from a 6.7-inch phone to a 7.8-inch tablet with "a simple tap of the finger." Abreu says the user interface will adapt to the change, though exactly what that looks like wasn't shown.

I think my problem with CES is that it tends to get dominated by new technology of screens, be it for tvs or phones. There's a lot of cooler stuff, but you have to look through all the screen tech find it and it gets repetive each year. I guess in the end phones and tvs have a far larger market share than any of the other tech on show.

A neat look into the future of autonomous industrial tech

Autonomous mega-trucks roar into CES 2021

If you ever wanted to see a dinosaur-sized autonomous mining truck, Caterpillar has you covered. At the all-virtual CES 2021, the industrial tech and vehicle giant unveiled not only its mammoth self-driving fleet but also new underground tracking systems tested in the Australian outback. 
Touting $2 billion in research and development funds and more than 16,000 active patents, Caterpillar roared into CES' opening day events with its autonomous mining mega-trucks leading its pitch to potential partners.

SenseGlove Nova VR Haptic Gloves Are Straight Out Of ‘Ready Player One’

 

 

CES 2021 continues to deliver with the reveal of SenseGlove’s motion tracking haptic gloves.

 
Haptic feedback specialists SenseGlove this week unveiled the SenseGlove Nova, the latest iteration of its force-feedback exoskeleton capable of simulating everything from shapes and impact to stiffness and resistance in VR.
 
Designed for use by companies for a variety of professional training purposes—such as the proper handling of hazardous material and the use of complex tools or machinery—these futuristic-looking devices allow users to interact with digital objects in a virtual world just as they would in real-life. They can feel the softness of a virtual pillow or the handle of a virtual tool, resulting in a new level of immersion impossible to replicate using conventional motion controllers and basic haptic vibrations.
