Las Vegas Tech Show Showcases How to Make Everyday Life Easier

Las Vegas, United States, January 13, 2024.- Technology is often designed to make everyday life tasks easier. Brushing teeth or health services are no exception, but no one thinks it is possible to achieve the desired gift that is ubiquitous.

Here are some of the examples displayed in the halls of the Technology Show (CES) in Las Vegas, USA.

– Supersonic toothbrush –

“Is this a toothbrush for lazy people?” asks a visitor at the Y-Brush booth.

A French company has designed a “Y”-shaped electric toothbrush that can be inserted into the mouth and do all the work in twenty seconds instead of two minutes.

“Just chew, go from right to left for ten seconds, same down, and that's it,” explained Y-Brush America representative, Jatt Chacin.

The promoter says the idea came about when the founder told himself, “Nobody takes two minutes to brush.”

Along with sales in Europe, the Y-Brush is now available in the US for around a hundred dollars.

– Go to my hologram –

CES attendees passing by the Holoconnects booth may be momentarily confused. Is there a person in that big transparent box? Until they realize: it's a hologram, and the real person is right next to it, in front of the camera.

The Dutch company specializes in hyper-realistic 3D holograms projected into human-sized boxes or small boxes that can be placed on a table or shelf.

Holograms have been of interest for years, especially in the entertainment industry.

But Steve Sterling, director for North America at Holoconnects, assures that its use is increasingly widespread because “higher definition images create more appeal.”

“At the moment, a global conference on dispute resolution is taking place between Amsterdam and Phoenix, Arizona. We have engaged an expert from Amsterdam to participate remotely in the university panel,” he explained.

Holographic boxes are especially used in the hospitality, medical and distribution industry.

Thanks to its technology and generative artificial intelligence, Holoconnects can create avatars of real people, capable of interacting with humans without disturbing the real model.

“We created an avatar for a vineyard sommelier, where you can ask questions, talk about winemaking, and he'll respond,” said Steve Sterling.

– Luxury bathroom –

“They're the smartest toilets in the world,” boasts Ryan Crodecutt, marketing manager for smart toilets at Kohler, an American specialist in kitchen and bathroom design.

For user cleaning, the toilet is equipped with a small shower whose temperature, pressure and other features are customizable. It comes with a drying device. A magnetic remote control allows the user to select what they want, but also voice their instructions to Amazon's virtual assistant, Alexa, into the toilet.

These toilets, which are customizable with colored LED lights, sell for about $8,500 to $10,000, depending on the color.
