Emicro One Electric Scooter

Here's a speedy 16.5 pound electric scooter that you just push off with your foot, and the motor built into the rear wheel comes to life automatically for up to 10 seconds.

Kick again, or just pull the handlebars towards you quickly, and it'll keep on trucking. It travels at speeds of up to 15 miles per hour (25km/h), and boasts a range of 7.5 miles (12km) on a charge.

Haier HLC1700AXW

Designed as part of Haier's small-space living appliance lineup, the HLC17000AXW is on display at CES 2016 and available for sale now with an MSRP of $1,050 (around $AU1,500 or £720).

It's a washer and a dryer that also has a small profile -- and not having a vent seems to fit with that appealing combo. If it manages to still perform as a washer and a dryer effectively, the Haier HLC17000AXW could be quite the convenient appliance for apartment dwellers.

New Chinese phones: Cheaper and good enough

You don't have to buy an Apple iPhone 6S or Samsung Galaxy Note 5 to get a decent phone anymore.

ZTE, Alcatel OneTouch and Huawei, a trio of Chinese companies you probably never heard of, have been busy at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas trying to prove that point. And while they may not offer all the bells and whistles of, say, Apple's flagship phone, they get the job done.

Blu Vivo XL

If you absolutely must have a large-screen, low-cost phone, the Blu Vivo XL announced here at CES in Las Vegas is throwing its hat in the ring. Its $150 price tag (or about £100 or AU$210) is ridiculously low for a 5.5-inch screen, and that's how Blu is building its brand.

Tango time

Chinese electronics giant Lenovo is partnering with Google to release a Project Tango smartphone, which it says will retail for less than $500 (£340, AU$710).

Project Tango came out of a Google project to make better use of inside space. While mapping companies have plotted the outside world with remarkable accuracy, there are few aids to navigate you once you're inside a mall, large hotel or the like.

A mobile device with Project Tango technology would employ three cameras -- one to distinguish colors, a depth lens and a fish-eye lens -- to get a sense of the space around them.

LG's rollable OLED TV

An 18-inch OLED display shown off by LG is so thin -- just 0.18mm -- it can be rolled up like a poster.

LG Display says the next step is to improve the size beyond 18 inches. The resolution will also likely receive a bump from 810x1,200-pixels, but since it's OLED its other picture-quality characteristics -- namely an insanely high contrast ratio -- are superb to begin with.
