CES 2017 has come to a close, but much of the new tech from the show is just getting started — that includes a slew of quirky products. Each year, along with the new smartphones, TVs, autonomous vehicles, new computers and wearable tech, we see just as many “quirky” devices that may or may not change the tech world for the better. This year was no different, with things like a smart hair brush or a smart garbage can attachment being shown off in full force.
CES this year brought along new smart products that included the GeniCan and a smart brush dubbed the Hair Coach — but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Here are our pciks for the top 5 weirdest products from CES 2017.
1. Fisher-Price Think & Learn Smart Cycle
Kids don’t get out as much as they used to, but with the Smart Cycle from Fisher-Price, that’s okay. This indoor cycle for kids holds an iPad and lets them cycle away without going anywhere at all.
2. Smart Undies
If you’re worried about radiation on your privates, one startup’s smart underwear sets out to keep your little guys (aka sperm) safe and sound. smart
There really isn’t any better compliment to your new Flippr than a machine to automatically fold your clothes — and the Foldmate does just that. It’s still just a prototype, but it’s pretty awesome. Insert clothes and the magic happens on its own.
4. Zeeq Smart Pillow
Some people may try to disconnect when they go to sleep at night, others may try a smart pillow to track their movements. This pillow not only lulls you to sleep, but it detects if you’re snoring and vibrates gently so you change your position.
5. Aurai Eye Massager
What better way to relax at night than with a quick eye massage? The Aurai Eye Massager is a water-propelled massage complete with warm and cool compresses. Maybe a pair of computer glasses will help ease the pain too!
Would any of these new products actually work their way into your life? Can you see yourself getting an eye massage after hours or letting a machine do your folding for you? Drop a comment and let’s hear what you think!
