SK’s Wonderland

Korean electronics conglomerate SK turned one section of the Central Hall inside the Las Vegas Convention Center into a high-tech carnival. Filled with futuristic gadgets and vehicles, the booth was a vision into how technology may influence everything in our lives, even our in-person entertainment.

Wonderland had a fully functional hydrogen fuel cell train that CES visitors could ride in. It had a magic carpet ride featuring an electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft and, yes, one could ride in it. It had artificial intelligence (AI) fortune tellers giving prognostications, a dancing car, a mini–Las Vegas Sphere and future environmentally friendly treats. By far one of the coolest things in all of CES 2024.

Swarovski smart AI binoculars

Swarovski introduced its AX Visio binoculars at CES 2024 that are AI-based and include a camera that takes high-definition photos and videos. These are designed specifically for bird watchers and the AI identifies the birds as they come into view with pop-ups in the reticle telling the user what they are looking at. According to a marketing manager on the show floor, the AI algorithm could be tailored for many different outdoor fields — like soccer, football or even NASCAR.

Bluetti’s portable fridge

This looks like a mini fridge that’s been turned horizontally, which by itself might have some interesting uses. However, this is a Bluetti power station that doubles as a fridge and ice maker. It contains a lithium-ion battery so users can keep drinks cold and make ice but do so without having to plug it in. It can be charged via solar or standard outlet, making it a cool tool to have while camping.

Ogmen Robotics’ ORO

You have a real dog in your home. How about a robotic dog? But don’t call it just a companion robot as ORO from Ogmen Robotics Inc. does much more. While yes, it does offer mental stimulation and companionship, it features autonomous mobility, adaptable AI and acts as a guardian for the house as well. It monitors the security of the house as well as health monitoring of people inside the home.

Barunbio’s WE-STIM

WE-STIM stands for wearable electric stimulation which is a type of energy harvesting from body movement. Here, Barunbio put the WE-STIM technology into a pair of leggings for sports users.

Govee’s Neon Rope 2

Hong Kong smart lighting vendor Govee brought its cool Neon Rope 2 to CES that allows users to make shapes, spell out words or create wild configurations on walls or the ground or wherever. The rope is flexible enough that curves are easily made but do not degrade the colors.
