Other Amazing Stuff

In the process of judging the entries for the Last Gadget Standing event at CES 2018 we found some real gems. The Root Coding Robot was one of them.  Root is an easy-to-use coding robot that has a custom smartphone app and 50+ sensors on board to turn fun into skills for kids. Turning young people's creativity and imagination into real world actions for the Root Robot to follow, also turns actions into coding that can be saved for later use or added to. This innovation produces an opportunity to learn new logic, problem-solving and coding skills using creativity energy. Coders of any age or skill level can use Root as their creative tool in defying gravity and climbing walls (magnetic white board), or moving about on smooth surfaces to draw artwork, play music, respond to touch and color, or use many of its other unique qualities. Starting out simple, the accompanying app features three levels of coding interfaces designed to grow with the user as their skills and knowledge improve. This includes simple sequences, patterns and loops, working up to advanced programming languages like Python, JavaScript and Swift. The world needs more code saavy warriors! This is one Root to…
Saw one of these last year at CES, but it was a huge expensive machine and although folding clothes is a tedious household task, I couldn't picture this as a household item then.  This Foldimate unit looks a lot more viable now, but In our house we all share the task of folding clothes, so altghough this caught my eye, I'm not sure...  The size of this machine is about twice that of a clothes dryer and also twice the price. Is this a viable addition to the utility room? Also not sure... The application of robotics to menial tasks is good and one year to go from non-viable (IMHO) technology to possibly an applience some people would buy is encouraging.  I don't know what else to say about this, so I will list some of what they had to say about it:   "FoldiMate will fold any type of shirt, blouse, or pants from age 5 to adult size XXL. It will also fold standard size towels and pillowcases. Estimated Price: $980 First Shipments: Late 2019.""Imagine, getting your laundry folding done in less time than it takes to brew a cup of coffee!""Ergonomic designed and fast folding technology allows you to feed…
