    Kubo, the robot that teaches kids to code, is now available for preorder

    We saw tons of new stuff at CES this year. But one thing that particularly caught our eye was Kubo, the robot that teaches kids how to code. Kubo is a pretty simple robot – it’s about the size of a can of soda and has two wheels that allow it to roll around a desk or table. But what it lacks in advanced physical ability it makes up for in brains. Kubo comes with its own… Read More

  • 10 of the coolest gadgets we saw at CES 2017

    10 of the coolest gadgets we saw at CES 2017

    It’s difficult to narrow down everything that happened at CES this year. We met tons of promising new startups and went hands-on with brand new gadgets on the floor of the expo hall, nightly events and on our Hardware Battlefield stage. These, in no particular order, were the hottest hardware startups and most interesting gadgets from the show, and you can find our full coverage of… Read More

    TechCrunch’s Hardware Battlefield finalists are BloomLife, Pillar Technologies, Siren Care and Stratio

    Over the past two days, 13 startups have taken the stage at TechCrunch’s Hardware Battlefield. Now our editorial team has finished deliberating with the expert judges (seriously, expert) and chosen four finalists who will be competing for the big prize of $50,000, as well as a trophy that we like to call the Metal Man. You can watch the presentations live on TechCrunch tomorrow… Read More

  • Siren Care weaves electronics into fabric to keep diabetic patients healthy

    Siren Care weaves electronics into fabric to keep diabetic patients healthy

    Instead of tracking your health with a little band that’s on your wrist, Ran Ma thinks that the future is keeping track of your health — or at least parts of it — with technology that’s woven into the fabric of your clothes. That’s the target of Siren Care, a wearable company that looks to weave electronic sensors into its clothing in order to track changes in… Read More

    Watch CES Day 2 LIVE right here!

    Boy, do we have a show for you today! We’ve got a fireside chat with FitBit’s James Park, as well as a fireside with the French conservative presidential candidate (who is leading in the polls) and former Prime Minister François Fillon.

  • Add items to your grocery list by scanning them on the way to the garbage can

    Add items to your grocery list by scanning them on the way to the garbage can

    At first glance, the GeniCan is completely ridiculous. At second, it’s actually kind of brilliant. The scanner clips onto the side of a trash can, an always present reminder to scan items when you run out. Before throwing an object out, you hold it up to the IR scanner and it adds it to your list. If an item can’t be scanned – like, say, a piece of fruit — the… Read More

  • Japet’s Atlas device uses exoskeleton technology to relieve and rehabilitate back pain

    Japet’s Atlas device uses exoskeleton technology to relieve and rehabilitate back pain

    At this year’s CES Hardware Battlefield, Japet announced Atlas, a device designed to tackle back pain, which is the No. 1 cause of employee sick leave. Antoine Noel and Damien Bratic met at engineering school. The pair worked together developing robotic hands for children with disabilities, before parting ways to start on other projects in health technology. Bratic started work on… Read More

  • SmartyPans tracks your meal’s nutrition as you cook it

    As you can probably guess from the company’s name, SmartyPans is building a smart frying pan — which it just demonstrated onstage at TechCrunch’s Hardware Battlefield at CES. As explained to me by CTO Rahul Baxi (he co-founded the company with his sister Prachi Baxi, a nutritionist), SmartyPans aims to make it easier for users to track nutrition and recipe… Read More

  • Dell’s Canvas is a 27-inch tablet for creative professionals

    Dell’s Canvas is a 27-inch tablet for creative professionals

    Microsoft’s Surface Studio was one of 2016’s surprise hits. It was a sort of one-two punch that arrived the same week that Apple released its new MacBook Pros to mixed reaction. Microsoft had seemingly come into its own as a producer of serious hardware for content creators. Dell previewed its own solution shortly thereafter by way of a quick online trailer. When we met with… Read More

  • Misfit goes full-on smartwatch with the Vapor

    Misfit seemed destined to get here, soon or later. Between getting swallowed up by Fossil and the recent introduction of the Phase hybrid watch, the company has been spending the last couple of years dipping its toes in the waters of more advanced wearables, finally going all in with the Vapor. The Vapor is a reasonably fairly slick affair, built with a focus on minimalism more akin to its… Read More

  • Blue debuts wireless headphones with a built-in amp and noise canceling

    Blue debuts wireless headphones with a built-in amp and noise canceling

    I was a bit cautious when Blue debuted its first set of headphones. I’m not sure why, exactly, but it’s always hard to say how a company known for something specific will transition into a new – albeit related – category. Turns out there was really nothing to worry about. Like the company’s various microphones, all of its headphone offerings have been pretty… Read More

  • VR shoes and a flying machine

    If this VR stuff fails to take off again, man are we going to feel silly about all of the things we tried over the past few years. Two fairly solid examples right here from a CES kickoff event. Both attempt to make VR that much more immersive, and both make you look pretty silly in the process. Let’s start with the VR shoes because, well, VR shoes. Cerevo’s Taclim are yet… Read More

    Nvidia’s press conference starts at 6:30 PM Pacific, 9:30 PM Eastern, 2:30 AM in London. Nvidia may have missed the smartphone boat, but the company accidentally became an essential chipmaker thanks to machine learning. Graphics processing units let developers run a ton of image processing tasks in parallel. That’s why carmakers are using Nvidia chips for their self-driving… Read More

  • Netgear’s new baby monitoring camera arrives dressed like a bunny

    Netgear’s new baby monitoring camera arrives dressed like a bunny

    Netgear really likes to show a slide from NPD every time it announces a new Arlo product. It did a few months back when it showed off its new security cameras and it’s doing so again with its latest reveal. The company is understandably excited by the graph, which shows Arlo dominating security camera market share here in the States. Naturally, the company is expanding the line. This… Read More
