Dunno if it's just me reading more coverage that previous years but they really seem to scraping the barrel with stupid tech this year.

Internet enabled yoghurt maker
plank that talks to google
voice activated personal assistant that talks to other voice activated personal assistant!

And it's only day 2!

I did hear something about a TV with a screen that scrolls down into a base when its not being used.
Our "big screens" are 23." Not hard to make them disappear. :lol:

I actually went to the CES 2019 website yesterday and didn't see anything that floated my boat.
My wife has a brother there this week with a robotics exhibit.

The samsung roll up TV does sound interesting at least from a tech perspective. The airbag vest for cyclists?

I could see that being adopted by hotels to deliver laundry.

It did look a bit clunky particularly the black electrical tape on the harness at the drop-down door for the large parcel alarm spike thingies.
