CES 2017 First Day Recap: From Automated Cat Bowl To Fridge Cam, The Weirdest Tech Debuts
The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2017 has officially kicked off. Aside from the most anticipated debuts of top of the line technologies, it appears that there are other things that made more than a few heads turn thanks to their weirdness. From automated cat bowl to fridge cam and other weird tech, name it and the CES 2017 has it.
The Automated Cat Bowl
According to a report from The Verge, the automated cat bowl or otherwise known as the Catspad allows for pet cats to have something to eat and drink without their owners personally giving it to them. This is done through the mobile application of the Catspad that need to be connected to Wi-Fi.
Accordingly, the Catspad can hold 60 ounces of food and eight liters of clean water that can be delivered at according to how the owners' set the configuration. The initial launch will have a discounted price tag of $199 while the rest of the product that will be delivered in June has a price of $249 as reported.
The Fridge Cam
One of the first things that would pop into people's head when someone talks about a fridge cam is, what good can it possibly do? It can be very handy apparently. The Smarter FridgeCam is basically set inside the refrigerator and works by taking pictures of the contents of the fridge every time the owner opens according to report from CNN. The photos can be accessed through mobile application that can be of help to the owners refresh their mind about what to get in the grocery store.
Unfortunately, there is a drawback in this technology. It can only capture the image of what's in front of it and not the whole content of the fridge. Therefore, a second camera has to be purchased to see the whole content of the fridge from the inside.
Will There Be Other Weird Tech
Whether there will be weirder technologies that will be making their debut at the 2017 CES remains to be seen. Given the fact however, that there are already weird ones that made their appearance, more will surely come. It will certainly be entertaining to see what comes next.
