3. Samsung’s Smart Refrigerators
Smart appliances seem to be the future of home kitchens. Several companies are launching fully programmable refrigerators that do a lot more than keep food cold.

It can connect with mobile devices to share information, play music or even stream video from a Samsung TV elsewhere in the home.
4. Sony AIBO
What if someone says that you can share your feelings, emotions with a puppy and get the response for every reaction? Sony has designed an adorable robot pup named Aibo, which is smart, cute and pettable. Sony’s iconic robotic dog Aibo can now dance, find a bone and recognize people in your family and there’s LTE (Long-Term Evolution, a standard for high-speed wireless communication) for always-on connectivity. Extra touch-sensors in its back allow you to put it like a real puppy.
According to Sony, Aibo can form emotional connections with individual family members and teach nurturing skills. It uses artificial intelligence, or AI, to react to touch and voice commands.
Aibo communicates through body languages, such as eye, ear, tail movements, and voice sounds.

Previous generations of the Acer Swift 7 have been known for their sharp, attractive profiles, but the 2018 model is so slim, it holds the title of “world’s thinnest laptop”.

9. Toyota e-Palette
Toyota’s president Akio Toyoda revealed the “e-Palette,” an electric, self-driving vehicle that when launched will do pizza delivery, retail shop and ride-hailing services.
It is available in three different sizes, each based on its particular range of uses. The e-Palette will begin being tested in the United States in the early 2020s if everything goes according to company’s plans. Having the size similar to a small bus, an electric Drivetrain and capable of autonomous navigation, the e-Palette aims to be an open platform for a variety of businesses with the flexibility to serve as virtually anything from an on-demand pizza delivery service to mobile pop-up shop.

The appliance giant has partnered with a well-known online recipe source Yummly to develop an app that will scan your fridge items and then come up with suitable recipe ideas.
