LG's lawn-mowing robot

Also from LG is a new robotic lawn mower. It looks quite similar to a robot vacuum, although it's significantly larger and presumably it'll use sensors to track your yard and keep your grass tidy.

Ewaybot MoRo

Chinese robotics company Ewaybot took to the CES trade show in Las Vegas with MoRo, a robotic assistant that is designed to simplify your life. Capable of moving around indoors and outdoors, handling objects and listening to voice commands, the MoRo is nearly 4-feet tall, weighs close to 80 pounds and has up to eight hours of battery life. It also costs a hefty $30,000, so the dream of a robot butler isn't quite there yet.

Emotech Olly

Social robot Olly is an attempt to bridge the divide between smart home hubs and smart home robots.

OK, so it's more of a voice assistant, but the Aristotle gets a special mention as Alexa for kids. It's a baby monitor, it answers questions, it orders diapers and new parent and CNET editor Sean Hollister said, "it could be the most exciting thing toymaker Mattel has ever produced."

Sick of folding clothes? The Laundroid was back at CES this year, and it was able to not only fold, but also sort your clothes. Granted, it takes five minutes to fold a shirt. But I think we can take the hit.
