These $6000 Therepauetic Robots by PARO are designed with 5 sensors, so they interact with people according to tactile, light, temperature, and posture readings, responding to voice and developing a 'personality' over time with it's owner.

Sustainability is hot this year at CES. There were several aisles in the North Hall devoted to green tech products and firms. I even stopped to talk with the Greenpeace booth, handing out a "pocket guide to greener electronics."

Smoking Everywhere is a company promoting an E-Cigarette, which they claim will allow a smoker to get their nicotine without the nasty odor or harmful second-hand smoke. It's essentially a mini-vaporizor for tobacco in the shape of a cigarette.

Judging from my quick walk through this hall it would appear there is a lot of interest in Robots. (Personally I'd rather have the cute furry seal.)
