5 Futuristic AI Gadgets You Didn’t Know Existed

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a tech world phenomenon that’s changing our lives in ways we never thought possible. Today, AI-powered gadgets are taking over our homes, work and even our cars.

From electronic noses that can smell food to telematics-powered smart tires, there are plenty of futuristic AI gadgets out there. But some may not be as useful or ethically sound.

1. GluxKind Ella

A self-driving stroller that won’t run away with your baby is coming out soon, according to Canadian startup GluxKind. The AI-powered Ella aims to be the “driver assist” of parenting to bring the buggy into the 21st century.

The Ella is a smart, battery-powered, and motorised stroller that is powered by NVIDIA Jetson edge AI. Its features include self-driving capabilities, object detection, voice control and more.

It comes with multiple modes that let parents choose whether they want to walk themselves or receive hands-free assistance, including a “safety bubble” feature that monitors the surroundings and alerts the user if there is anything obstructing their way. It also has an auto-brake function to ensure that it doesn’t accidentally crash down the hill, so you can have a worry-free outing with your kids.

You can also use the AI-powered stroller to rock your baby to sleep. It has an automatic rocking mode and a white noise machine to help soothe babies.

At CES 2023, the AI-powered stroller was on display by GluxKind. Its price tag is $3,300.

Despite its high price, the AI-powered stroller could make it easier for parents and caregivers to enjoy quality time with their children. Its adaptive push and brake assistance makes uphill and downhill trips more accessible, regardless of the weight of your baby and the contents of your basket.

GluxKind co-founders Anne Hunger and Kevin Huang explain how they started their company and why the product is important for new parents. They also talk about how the company’s AI-powered stroller enables real life adventures and brings families closer together.

2. Neubie Delivery Robot

Neubie is an autonomous mobile robot developed for stable self-driving in high-density urban areas. It uses multi-camera-based V-SLAM, rather than LiDAR sensors, enabling accurate position estimation even in high-pedestrian traffic environments and cutting manufacturing costs. Its embedded technologies include’sensor fusion for AI-based obstacle recognition/avoidance logic’ and ‘drivable path detection’.

The company says it has tested Neubie’s high-pedestrian traffic maneuvering in major downtown areas in Korea, including Seoul and Songdo districts. It also signed a memorandum of understanding with Goggo Network in Europe to test robot delivery service in downtown areas in Spain last October.

It was recently selected by CES as an Innovation Award honoree for its smart city product. The self-driving robot is capable of delivering food and small items to customers using a ‘RaaS’ (Robotics as a Service) model.

In addition to Neubie, the startup has a robot-as-a-service platform called ‘Neubiego’ that is used for monitoring and controlling its robotic fleet. It has worked with 7-Eleven for a food delivery service and hopes to attract more B2C and retail customers in future.

In order to ensure the safety of its robotic fleet, Neubility signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with local insurer DB Insurance on Oct. 31 to develop an insurance product that compensates for accidents incurred by pedestrians, cars and motorcycles during robot delivery.

3. OneThird Food Scanners

A company called OneThird is hoping to solve a problem that’s estimated to cost the world $1 trillion a year: food spoilage. Its technology aims to eliminate up to 25% of food waste across the produce supply chain.

Using an optical technology, a near-infrared scanner and AI algorithms, the system can determine whether fresh produce is still good to eat or not by measuring its spectra. It also includes a cloud-based dashboard where users can see data and insights.

The scanners are made by a Netherlands-based startup called OneThird. It was founded in 2019 to reduce food waste through its artificial intelligence-powered platform. It currently enables growers, distributors and retailers to predict the shelf life of tomatoes, strawberries, blueberries and avocados.

This shopper-friendly tool is one of several products from the Dutch startup. Other scanners can be used for a variety of other types of produce, such as grapes, bananas and mangoes.

As the company’s founder and CEO, Marco Snikkers, puts it: “The amount of wasted food worldwide is staggering. It’s a serious, global issue that affects all of us.”

He believes that if this type of technology can be made available to everyone, it could help reduce the amount of waste produced by growers and processors. And if it can be used by shoppers, it can help them avoid purchasing foods that are past their prime or have become spoiled.

Initially developed for medical purposes, this type of technology proved to be suitable for scanning fruits and vegetables to determine their shelf life. And with the aid of proprietary algorithms and a near-infrared scanner, the device can tell if fresh produce is still good or not in real time.

4. Dell Alienware Concept Nyx Game Controller

Last year, Dell unveiled a concept for a home gaming server called Nyx that could be used to play PC games on just about any screen in the house. Today, at CES 2023, the company is showing off an experimental game controller that will go with that platform.

The controller looks like a derivative of Xbox and PlayStation controllers, but it’s got some pretty futuristic tech in it. Besides the thumb sticks being positioned at the bottom like on Sony’s DualSense controller, there’s also a fingerprint reader that lets you sign into Steam and other gaming platforms with your fingertip.

It’s also a lot more than just a console-style controller, as it’s capable of connecting to your home Wi-Fi network and stream games directly from the Nyx server to any screen you point it at. That means you can pick up a game on your desktop and start playing it straight away, even if you’re in the middle of dinner.

One of the more interesting aspects of the device is that it’s designed to replace not just your console controller, but your keyboard and mouse as well. The D-Pad and shift buttons on the back of the device mimic the movement and input you’d typically need with a PC gamepad, letting you control up to ninety-five different actions.

The controller is also equipped with self-adjusting variable resistance thumb sticks that can be tailored to your gaming preferences and the specific game you’re playing. It even has haptics, with advanced rumble features that reproduce everything from gunshots to heartbeats. Its built-in Wi-Fi connection also means you and other members of your household can multitask and view messaging apps, emails, movies or games on intuitive split-screens. And if you want to take the fight to the next level, you can connect two wireless headsets for simultaneous gaming.

5. Acer Add-In-One 24

At CES 2023, Acer has introduced a modular all-in-one computing system that pairs its Chromebox CXI5 with a docking monitor. It’s designed to help businesses and commercial institutions streamline space, simplify repairs and upgrades, and reduce downtime.

Acer’s new Add-In-One 24 combines a Chromebox CXI5 or Chromebox Enterprise CXI5 with a 24-inch FHD docking monitor. Specifically designed to fit the back of the docking monitor, this modular design allows users to easily swap out one Acer Chromebox for another when needed.

Ideal for video conferencing, this workstation fits neatly on a desk or in any sized meeting room and features a 115-degree wide-angle 5 MP webcam with a built-in camera shutter, dual microphones, and stereo 4-watt speakers. Multiple AI noise reduction modes suppress background noise to deliver clear audio, even in the busiest of environments.

Like most ChromeOS mini PCs, users can upgrade the Acer Add-In-One 24’s processor and RAM to suit their needs. The 12th Gen Intel Core i7 processor with vPro technology is supported, as well as up to 256GB of storage.

The Acer Add-In-One 24 also comes with a 115-degree wide-angle, 5MP webcam with a built-in camera, dual microphones, and a privacy shutter. It also includes AI noise reduction modes for high-quality video calls and supports a stand that can be tilted from -5 degrees to 25 degrees for the user’s convenience.

This is a neat setup that might be suitable for office workers and work from home types looking to improve their productivity by adding a docking monitor to their existing Chromebook. The only caveat is that the 1080p resolution of the display feels dated and may not be as sharp as 1440p.
