… Boats that float above the water, smart toilets, and the future of entertainment.
Speaker 2 (00:05):
What do they have in common?
Speaker 2 (00:06):
The answer is they made their world debut at the Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas. They’re all out there with their creativity. Susan Hirasuna shows us.
Susan Hirasuna (00:18):
The Candela C-8 might look like a traditional boat until you take a closer look. The boat flies over the water.
Mikael Mahlberg (00:25):
It’s a smooth and level ride in almost all conditions. A lot of people don’t like to go boating because they get seasick, but you can’t get seasick in a Candela.
Susan Hirasuna (00:33):
Under the water, a wing or hydrofoil that allows the boat to use energy more efficiently than a boat pushing through the water. Right now, this kind of cutting-edge tech will set you back nearly $400,000, but already there are some 150 orders.
Use your legs. That’s the advice when lifting heavy weights. But with the German bionic exoskeleton, lifting heavy weights gets a high-tech assist.
Norma Steller (01:01):
What I’m wearing right now is a powered, robotic AI-enabled exoskeleton. It’s designed for workers in physically demanding job. What it does, it keeps people healthy when they lift. So when I lift the heavy load, the exoskeleton is now helping me to move upwards.
Susan Hirasuna (01:18):
Way to save your back. How about a way to save your marriage, potentially?
Andrew Van Gordon (01:22):
You’ll never leave the lid up again.
Susan Hirasuna (01:24):
But that’s the least of what this Kohler smart toilet can do. Alexa is embedded into this $10,000 commode.
Andrew Van Gordon (01:31):
It also allows you to play music, streaming your music through your smart home device. It can play your favorite podcast, check the news. Maybe while you’re getting ready in the morning, check your weather before you get out the door.
Speaker 7 (01:41):
The first handheld smart makeup applicator. [inaudible 00:01:45].
Susan Hirasuna (01:44):
Since when do we need a smart lipstick applicator? What L’Oreal calls the Hapta.
Speaker 8 (01:50):
The technology is for people that have mobile and motor skill challenges today.
Susan Hirasuna (01:57):
Inside the base are multiple sensors and robotics. Hapta learns how your arm and hand move and in what angle.
Speaker 9 (02:05):
10 years ago, I had a stroke. It makes my life different now.
Susan Hirasuna (02:10):
Here’s another L’Oreal product revealed at CES, Brow Magic. Thanks to augmented reality, users can find recommended brow shapes based on the shape of their face. You can change the arch and thickness, then with optical sensors and micro jet printing, it’s just to swipe.
Speaker 8 (02:28):
The device gets the information from the application, and then you just apply.
Speaker 2 (02:35):
Speaker 2 (02:37):
… that’s amazing. Yeah.
Speaker 2 (02:40):
But, Brooke, you know that I don’t mess around with my eyebrows. I just …
But the thing is your hands are differently abled. I don’t know the best terminology, but that’s why. You know what I mean? It’s someone who maybe doesn’t have a steady of a hand.
Speaker 2 (02:55):
No. It’s great.
What they can do is going to come out different.
Speaker 2 (02:57):
I just … Oh my God. I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t do it. But that’s cool. L’Oreal promises the Hapta and the Brown Magic will be available at the end of the year. Oh, it’ll cost you about $150 to $200.
Not cheap, but …
Speaker 2 (03:09):
No. But, yeah, if it has good results, it’s fine.
Speaker 2 (03:13):
It’s worth it.
It was cool to see that, just like-
Speaker 2 (03:15):
On your arm, it’s cool. I’m just scared about my face.
