If you could add touch to your virtual reality experience, would you? Tesla Studios is hoping you do, as they're looking to bring their Tesla Suit to market. It's not technically a suit, but its modules have various sensors and haptic feedback abilities to help VR environments feel even more real to the user. No pricing or specific availability yet, but it's intriguing.
We're also checking out a little appliance that's about as close as we're gonna get to a Star Trek replicator: The Genie, a coffee machine-sized device with the ability to make meals in about 30 seconds. It uses a similar technology to Keurig's K-Cups, only instead of coffee filling, the pods contain freeze-dried meals. Lastly, a robotics company hopes to show the softer side of drones with a dance made for the skies.
