The Dolfi is designed to wash delicate clothes using ultrasonic waves

Delicate clothing are the here-there-be-dragons of the laundry world. Unlike jeans and socks, one mistake can result in a favorite garment shrinking to doll size or ending up a gray, shredded mess. To help avoid this sort of wash day tragedy, Swiss engineering lab MPI Ultrasonics has come up with Dolfi, a pocket-sized device that makes laundering hand-washables a hands-free job.  Read More

Wheelys 2 is made for entrepreneurs who don't mind doing a bit of pedaling ... and peddlin...

Five years ago, we heard about a bicycle that doubles as a beer bar. Clever though that may be, sometimes people need a jolt more than a buzz. Well, that's where Wheelys 2 comes in. It's an electric cargo trike that also happens to be a powered mobile coffee shop.  Read More

Some claim that cooking is becoming a lost art, with many in Gen Y relying on frozen pre-packaged meals or eating out rather than learning the required skills from their parents. The Cooki from Sereneti Kitchen might not do anything to reverse this trend, but it could at least enable the cooking-impaired to enjoy a meal made from fresh ingredients. On display at CES in prototype form, this ambitious culinary contraption uses a robotic arm to whip up meals from pre-portioned ingredients.  Read More

Ehang's Ghost Drone in action

It was just this June that we heard about the HEXO+ and AirDog drones, which were two of the first consumer multicopters to offer a Follow function – that's the ability to track the location of their user, and fly along above them. Since then, models including the Iris+ and Zano have come out with the same feature. Now, Chinese/American company Ehang is successfully raising production funds for its Follow-equipped GoPro-toting Ghost Drone. Developed in partnership with Duke University, not only is the quadcopter able to track and film its user, but it's also reportedly easier to fly than its competitors.  Read More

Peri Duo is a speaker and battery case for the iPhone

A new iPhone add-on devised by California-based company Peri aims to give iPhone users a double whammy: more battery power and sound volume, all for less cash. Called Peri Duo, it comes in the form of a case that integrates a speaker system and a 2,500-mAh battery. When detached from the phone, it becomes a speaker whose aural power is strong enough to disturb the neighbors.  Read More

Desalination may one day prove the savior for regions of the world where clean drinking water is scarce, but current technology dictates that this process is often expensive and energy-intensive. The team behind the Desolenator has high hopes of delivering water security to those in need, with a mobile desalinator that runs purely on energy from the sun.  Read More

Slipknot's Sid Wilson has provided a number of song patterns for the KDJ-ONE

Nearly 3 years ago, Japan's CyberStep Communications revealed a prototype all-in-one synth, sequencer and multitrack audio editor called the KDJ-ONE that could be held in the palm of the hand, had built-in storage and offered Wi-Fi connectivity. Then, after well-received demonstrations at trade shows like NAMM and Musikmesse, all went quiet. Now the company says that a redesigned portable music studio is finally ready for release and has launched two simultaneous crowdfunding efforts to bring the device to market.  Read More
