NUA Robotics Smart Luggage

In case you haven’t noticed, more and more devices are getting smarter... and that includes luggage. And one company is taking it to a whole new level by designing the first robotic suitcase that can follow you around.

Forget driverless cars, someone made an autonomous personal transportation drone

EHang 184 Personal Transportation Drone

We thought Parrot’s Disco might be the most interesting drone coming out of CES 2016, but there’s one project that’s even more daring. The EHang 184 is a “first-ever autonomous aerial vehicle” that was announced at CES on Wednesday.

That’s right, the drone in the image above can transport actual people – well, one at a time – without a pilot. Considering that retailers are looking to use drones to fulfill same-day deliveries, driverless drones for humans is probably the next logical step. However, don’t expect regulators to allow such products to fly around cities any time soon.

D-Link’s Wireless Router Twins Ensure There Are No Dead Spots in Your House

Even with countless antennas pointing in all directions, most consumer-level routers can’t create a wifi network that covers every last corner of a large house. So instead of selling you a wireless extender once you realize that, D-Link now has a kit with twin routers that guarantees comprehensive wifi coverage from day one.

Roku’s next big thing: 4K UHD Smart TVs and HDR technology

Roku TCL 4K UHD TV

Apple, Google and Amazon all have TV products that smarten up any TV, transforming it into a portal to numerous digital content sources. Roku is no stranger to attacking the living room in such a manner, but the company also has a different kind of product in mind for customers, smart television sets that come preloaded with Roku programming.

At CES 2016, Roku is launching new smart TV models, which isn’t surprising considering that it did the same thing in previous years. However, this time  Roku is betting big on 4K UHD TVs that should offer users an even better overall viewing experience.

This might be the most exciting announcement from CES 2016

Foldable Display

Last year's Consumer Electronics Show was the best event I've seen in years because it really was a glimpse at the future. We're currently in a period of transition but soon, everything in our homes will be connected. Everything in our offices will be connected. Our cars will be connected — even our clothes will be connected. CES 2015 gave us our first real look at that connected future and it was exciting.

This year, the show is shaping up to be a continuation of the same story. Much of the shine has worn off, but connected devices that fit into the "Internet of Things" story are taking center stage at CES 2016 as well. Nifty though they may be, the excitement has worn off a bit since IoT was also the focus of last year's show.

But don't despair. There will still be some exciting announcements made at CES 2016 — and it looks like one of the most exciting things we'll see at this year's show might have already been unveiled.

Many companies, including top tech players, are currently developing their own VR and AR projects, though independent researchers are also working on such innovations.

For example, Japanese engineers have figured out how to create holograms that you can actually touch.
