CES always brings us the most cutting edge and craziest tech, but sometimes, these wild products never actually see the light of day.
Here's an update on where our picks of CES 2018 are now.
Let's start with the Sony aibo.
The adorable robot dog companion melted plenty of hearts, but when it went on sale in the U.S. in September 2018, it also melted a lot of wallets.
It costs an eye-watering $2900 and while it won't make you a cup of coffee or play your favorite songs like other voice assistants, it will keep you company.
And generate a lot of virtual pain.
One of the most practical discoveries, the [UNKNOWN] glove.
It's a wearable robot that restores strength in the hands of people who are affected by a range of medical conditions.
The glove successfully completed its crowdfunding campaign at the end of 2018, with an estimated delivery date of June 2019 for the first backers.
LG Display's rollable 65 inch OLED TV was one of the biggest showstoppers at CES.
But this is a prototype rather than something that's ready to buy for our living rooms.
We haven't heard anything yet on when we might expect this to become an actual product we can buy.
But don't be surprised if you see it again at CES 2019 as the foldable, rollable and bendable screen space heats out.
Something you can actually put in your home right now is the Whirlpool WiFi microwave.
You can scan barcodes on frozen foods to get the right settings, or use Alexa, or the Google Assistant to preheat the oven.
But it's $640, it's ten times more expensive than the AmazonBasics Microwave that came out in September which also has Alexa.
The Byton Electric SUV was another highlight, but it was just a concept at the time.
Now called the mByte, it's currently being road tested and it should reach production in CHina, later in 2019.
The production model will be available in a rear-wheel or four-wheel drive model.
Byton says it will available in the US in 2020 with prices starting at forty-five thousand dollars.
Our final update on the hottest products from CES 2018 is the Razer Project Linda.
It's a laptop with a space for a smart phone to slide right in underneath the keyboard.
The idea is, the laptop runs Android from the phone so you have a physical keyboard and larger screen.
But since CES, we haven't heard anything more on whether or not this is gonna become a real product.
So we're not holding our breath.
