Last month we shared several new products from the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Below are a few more inventions that received honors this year.
The first-ever TV equipped with an automated rotating display that can easily switch between horizontal or vertical orientations. It syncs with your smartphone to play content, and can automatically adjust its orientation to the video that you are playing. Uniquely optimized for vertically shot videos, it still delivers all of the benefits of a traditional QLED screen. And when paired with a 5G dongle, The Sero becomes the first 5G-ready TV—boasting next-generation speed for streaming next-generation content.
The Wayzn smart sliding glass door opener allows hands-free use of the door and can be controlled by mobile app, smart speakers and through integrations with smart cameras and sensors. It uses advanced technology to ensure safety and security while providing convenience to consumers who wish to provide controlled access to the yard, whether at home or away.
The newest product in Roborock’s top-of-the-line S series, the S5 Max is the next-generation home robot vacuum and mop designed to provide seamless automated mopping giving homes well-vacuumed, just-mopped floors every day. By combining an electric water tank with precision laser mapping and advanced navigation, the S5 Max allows users to select a range of customized options including water flow, suction power, scheduled cleaning and room cleaning sequence.
Narwal is the world’s first self-cleaning robot cleaner, which supports both vacuum and mop by changing modules. Based on the magnetic design, it takes less than 10 seconds to change the cleaning module. It featured with unique mop self-washing and deep-cleaning technology, which provides users with hands-free experience. The robot will automatically return to the base station to wash mops during mopping and come back to work from pause-spot.
