Creative SXFI AIR, SXFI AIR C headphones are first to have Super X-Fi

ASUS Mini PC ProArt PA90 tower PC almost looks familiar

ASUS Mini PC ProArt PA90 tower PC almost looks familiar

When Apple put out the new Mac Pro design in 2013, it was largely ridiculed for using a design reminiscent of a trash can. But like anything Apple, that design eventually became accepted and even imitated. Since then, lots of odd looking desktop towers have popped up, mixing power, smaller space footprints, and their OEMs own brand of “elegance”.

While it may not look like a trash can, it does look slightly similar to a smart speaker, an air cooler, or, OK, even some trash bins.

Whirlpool smart appliances can soon be controlled from Wear OS

Appliances, even some that may not make sense, these days are getting smarter just by connecting to the Internet. That, however, is almost moot if you can’t control them at your convenience. Sure, you can probably ask your smart speaker, but what if you don’t have one. Sure, you can use your smartphone, but what if you left it in the other room? Fortunately, there are such things as smartwatches that may always be on your wrist all the time. And if you have a Wear OS smartwatch and a Whirlpool connected appliance, those two will soon be able to talk to one another as well.

Breadbot is a mini bakery that makes 10 loaves of bread every hour

Though bread vending machines are a thing in some places, they still require some degree of human involvement. The Breadbot, a machine set to debut at CES 2019, is different: it is an autonomous gadget that functions as an all-in-one bakery.
