An unusual entry at CES this year is "The Impossible Burger 2.0". It's a plant-based beef substitute that apparently looks like meat, grills like meat and tastes like meat. Could this be the future?
PS. I'd like to state I'm a hardcore meat-eater; I love a medium-rare steak or Patty & Bun burger. But if the "Impossible Burger" really does taste like the real deal and costs the same (or cheaper), then I'm all for it.

I think the best tech innovation would be if someone could come up with a DAB radio signal and bluetooth that actually works seemlessly without interference LOL It's all very good getting rid of wires etc, but the replacement technology should work properly first.

I've really enjoyed reading your favourite tech from yesterday's CES. Some fantastic and rather interesting devices in equal measure!
I've listed a few more personal highlights Let me know what you think of these and any others you found interesting.
First up the ROBO FARMER! This autonomous combine can take the leg work out of farming. It can follow a pre-programed route without any input from an operator and even has built in cameras that can analyse the quality of grain on the fly! Reminds me of the autonomous combine's from installer.
It woulden't be a proper tech event with out even more robots!! The rather adorable SAMSUNG BOTS are intended as a companion for those that need a little extra help and can lend a hand with tasks such as remembering to take medication and dialing the emergency services! You can also dance with the robots.
FUTURELIGHT FABRIC is a new material from The North Face which is both waterproof and breathable. The new fabric is much thinner and quieter then current waterproof gear and has been tested on some of the worlds most dangerous mountain's including Everest!

Lighter, more breathable fabrics will always be welcome by the biking community.. less noisy would be awesome too!
I'm not sure robots or autonomous cars are the way to go, judging by THIS

OK...so regarding the "SAMSUNG BOTS (who are) intended as a companion for those that need a little extra help and can lend a hand with tasks such as remembering to take medication and dialing the emergency services! You can also dance with the robots."
Not sure people who need help with medication and a call to emergency services would really feel like dancing?
