Robotic food delivery, toothbrush that cleans in 10 seconds

    A robot to deliver your meals, a “smart” moped to hit the streets, a digital device to tattoo you, and a toothbrush that guarantees to clean your choppers in 10 seconds are all due to make their debuts this week at the CES show in Las Vegas.

While the annual trade conference is expected to be lightly attended due to the spread of the Omicron variation, those attending the three-day electronics extravaganza will get a preview of futuristic gizmos that could soon be available in a store near you.

LG will unveil the next in its CLOi autonomous robot series, which will include a four-wheeled delivery system that employs artificial intelligence to navigate varied terrains.

The company created a promotional film showcasing its newest WALL-E-likes, including the LG CLOi GuideBot and the ServeBot.

The CLOi GuideBot is an autonomous robot that may be utilized as an information kiosk, a mobile advertising unit, or even a roaming security guard by enterprises.

These robots, which can drive at a meter per second, can avoid obstructions thanks to a 3D video sensor that recognizes people and objects on the ground.

During the day, the GuideBot can be set to travel a specific path and activate a security camera that uses remote-monitoring software to communicate if something goes wrong.

The CLOi ServeBot, an automated, self-driving stack of three shelves or drawers, could also be used in the hospitality industry. Restaurant owners, hospital employees, office managers, and retail establishments can program the ServeBot to travel a route with up to three locations while carrying cargo weighing up to 17 kilos.

The French company FasTeesH debuted their Y-Brush, a jaw-shaped toothbrush that can clean your mouth in as little as 10 seconds.

Another item that is expected to pique people’s interest at CES this week is what is being advertised as the world’s first all-in-one temporary tattoo instrument.

Prinker, based in South Korea, presented the Prinker M, a portable tiny tattoo printer that generates temporary, digital, water-resistant pictures on people’s skin.

The device, which is planned to retail for $200 at first, weighs approximately half as much as a tablet and fits in the palm of an adult’s hand.

People in a hurry may prefer the Y-Brush, an electric toothbrush designed to clean all teeth at once, reducing brushing time from the recommended two minutes to only 10 seconds.

According to the maker, FasTeesH of Lyon, France, the product contains 35,000 nylon bristles. According to the business, nylon is more successful at eliminating plaque than other polymers, including silicone.

The bristles on the brush are angled at a 45-degree angle to suit all jaws.

Brekr, a Dutch electric scooter business, has released its Model B4000 moped, which can reach speeds of up to 31 miles per hour.

The company charges a retail price of $147 per gadget, which is significantly more expensive than the average toothbrush found at your local pharmacy.

Another clean-focused item that could appeal to someone living alone is “Bob,” a $400 small dishwasher that weighs 22 pounds and is roughly the size of a microwave oven.

There is no need to connect it to a water supply because it contains a 16.5-cup water tank that can be filled.

According to the manufacturer, Daan Tech, Bob uses five times less water to wash the same amount of dishes as if they were washed by hand.

Bob, which also employs ultraviolet light to improve cleaning, can clean up to 16 glasses or mugs in 15 minutes.

According to the maker, the Bob small dishwasher, which weighs 22 pounds, consumes five times less water each wash than hand washing dishes.

Meanwhile, to escape all of these home chores, the Dutch electric scooter startup Brekr introduced its Model B4000 electric moped, which resembles a classic motorbike.

The 159-pound moped has a 4,000-watt electric engine and a lithium battery that charges completely in three hours. It has a top speed of 31 miles per hour. A full charge provides a range of 118 miles.

The Brekr model is classified as a “smart” moped since it links to an app that includes an inbuilt GPS module and anti-theft technologies.

In its native Holland, the Brekr B4000 costs $4,775 USD. The corporation is undecided whether or not it will be offered in the United States.
