CES 2016 gets weird with fridge screens, far-out supercars, smelly alarms

Culture
The ES 2016 has just getting started and already, things are getting weird. I'm Bridget Carey. This is your CNET update. [MUSIC] Here is the 2016 international consumer electronic show, the press is getting some early peeks of products and news before the show floor open. At the Las Vegas convention center, companies are still putting the finishing touches on their booths. Here you see Intel's booth with these massive, glowing body statues all around. It appears there's a big focus around health tech and how gadgets can better you as a human being. It's a trend we're seeing by a few companies this year. And yes, that means more things you can strap to your body. Garmin unveiled a pair of smart glasses called the Varia Vision. It's similar to Google glasses, but it's For bikers. It clips onto your existing sunglasses, and a color screen hangs over your right eye to show you performance data and turn by turn directions. It ships in March and costs $400. The Garmin headset does make sense for bicyclists, but not tech [INAUDIBLE] so far seems as useful. Samsung's Korean Flickr account published images of some large appliances debuting, and there's a four door fridge With a giant touch screen taking up an entire door, it's called a family hub refrigerator. CES can feel like a car show with concepts like this and actually CES is becoming more of an actual car show. A California company called Faraday Future showed off a radical concept electric vehicle called the FS Zero One It looks like some sort of battery powered bat mobile. It's a 1000 horsepower all wheel drive hyper car and one driver sits snug in the center of the cockpit. You slide your smart phone into a slot in the steering wheel. Parking configured to your settings. Oh, and did I mention it's a self driving car that can also self drive on a racetrack? But let's go back to tech for the home. If you need help in the kitchen, you can cook with the SmartyPans for $300. You tell the app what ingredients you're throwing in the pan and then sensors calculate the calories and other nutritional data. And it records the time, temperature and weight of your ingredients So it can create a recipe that you can share. It won't help your food taste better so that part is up to you. But if your life can use some better smells there's the censor wake. It's an alarm clock that wakes you by defusing 15 different scents like coffee, mint or The smell of money. Now, I hope you also like the smell of spending money, because it costs around $100 and the scent pods are $5 each. Each lasts one month. That's your tech news update. So stay tuned all week long for our continuing CES coverage coming to you from the CNET stage at the Las Vegas Convention Center. I'm Bridget Carey. [SOUND] [BLANK_AUDIO]
