CES LiveBlog: Robots, Flying Cars, and a Gazillion Gadgets

Welcome to day three of our CES 2019 liveblog. Wednesday is the mid-point of the big show. The expo halls have been open for a full day, and most attendees are heading back for seconds. We saw a great number of wacky gadgets yesterday and Monday—some of them innovative, some of them ridiculous. Expect more of the same today. Scroll down to see reports from Wednesday at CES in Las Vegas, Nevada, with the newest updates appearing at the top.

Goodnight, CES!

That’s a wrap for Wednesday’s liveblog. We’ll be back with one more day of live coverage from the expo floor at CES on Thursday. Meantime, here’s all the other news out of CES:

  • More of the coolest stuff we’ve seen at CES so far
  • You can ignore 5G, for now
  • Google’s Interpreter Mode translates conversations
  • This YubiKey will soon free your iPhone from passwords
  • Hyundai’s walking car concept reinvents the wheel

Tea Tech

Boiling water for tea or coffee is a multi-minute task that many of us do several times a day, and Heatworks claims it has a solution. It’s showing off a prototype (currently nonworking) of the Duo, a battery-powered water carafe that instantly heats water as it pours through the spout. It uses the company’s “Ohmic Array” tech to heat water quickly, and without a traditional heating element. Heatworks claims it will take about 20-30 seconds to pour an 8-ounce glass of water, and you can set the temperature to whatever you want. The heating tech will bring it to within a degree of your desired temp. It doesn’t have a precise release date, but the company claims it will cost between $100-$150 when it comes out.—Jeffrey Van Camp
