CES showcases hot, new practical home gadgets

LAS VEGAS - The Consumer Electronics Show is where the world of technology gathers to show off the latest trends in technology.

This year, a lot of practical yet hi-tech gadgets for your home and family were on display.  From window cleaning robots to face-recognition cameras were among the must have's at this year's CES.

In a world where everyone is on the go, cooking might not be a priority, but what if you can begin to put a meal together before getting home?

"Set it and forget it and it'll be ready to cook in 30-minutes or less," said Edwin Edukere, product specialist, Etekcity.

The device is a smart pressure cooker controlled by an app.

For many valley residents, the dry desert weather can cause some health issues, so why not invest in a smart humidifier.

"They are wi-fi enabled," said Michael Sarmiento, a graphic designer for Etekcity.  "What's cool about this one is that it's hybrid, so it can do cool mist and warm mist. You can set a timer for it, so if you wanted to run it for four hours at 5 p.m., you can go ahead and do that."

Of course, voice-controlled systems are popular, as usual, but Jibo also likes to bust a move.  A reading robot named Luka is manufactured by the Ling, an investor of the company that makes Jibo.

"It can read everything which means any picture book you put in front of it, it can read," said Jiawei Gu, the founder of Ling Technology.

Luka can read in both Mandarin and English.

CES is in town through Friday. It's usually the largest convention of the year.
