Five of the best new products from CES 2019

CES 2018

It’s the most anticipated date in the technology sector calendar, and with good reason. The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is held in Las Vegas every year, bringing together the biggest players in the tech world who pull out all the stops to showcase their latest innovations.

This year has unveiled a host of exciting products and we’ve rounded up the most impressive right here:

Hyundai’s walking car

Straight out of a sci-fi novel, this walking concept vehicle from Korean car manufacturer Hyundai replaces standard wheels with articulated legs. It is hoped that the car could be used to reach victims following natural disasters.

The rollable TV from LG

The LG Signature OLED TV R is a new 65-inch 4K television that can roll-up into its base when not in use. That means it can be placed in front of windows without impairing the view when switched off. LG has not mentioned a launch date or price yet, but we expect something this cool will be very expensive!

A treadmill that turns your energy in to power

Need some extra motivation to get you moving after Christmas? Gym equipment manufacturer SportsArt has displayed a new treadmill at CES that creates electricity as you use it. Called The Verde, this running machine could be the perfect way to get fit while reducing your electricity bill.

HTC takes VR headsets to the next level

VR headsets have slowly been gaining in popularity over the last few years, and the Vive Pro Eye from HTC could be the most advanced ever. The headset uses eye tracking instead of the regular hand controllers. That means you’ll be able to select items simply by looking at them. Cool, right?

Bell unveils a flying taxi

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any more futuristic, aviation manufacturer Bell has shown off its new flying taxi at CES. Named ‘The Nexus’, it is a hybrid electric vehicle that can take off vertically and can also fly itself. It’s still at prototype stage for now, but the machine does offer an enticing glimpse into the future of transport.
