Razer, Intel, OnePlus and Impossible Meat made strong entries in the first full day of CES. As the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas continued Tuesday, there was no shortage of news and gadgets we didn’t know we needed. There was the mildly silly smart litter box that lets you inspect your cat’s poops. There’s the OnePlus concept phone with a disappearing camera. There was the impossibly tiny new Intel PC, the NUC 9 Extreme, aka Ghost Canyon, that promises an upgradable desktop at a fraction of the size, and a new desktop gaming PC from Razer, the Tomahawk, that uses Intel’s NUC Element as well Impossible Meat unveiled its new “pork” product which my colleague and longtime vegetarian Elizabeth Lopatto concludes is meant for people who need the bridge between real meat and its analogue, not for hardcore vegetarians and vegans.
We’ve started to see other socially-conscious devices as well, including a face mask meant to filter out air pollution. As my colleague Nicole Wetsman writes, however:
Ao Air’s Atmos Faceware is positioning itself as a tech-driven solution to increasing levels of air pollution in a world that’s literally and figuratively burning. But the $350 gadget, which just debuted at CES, may be beyond the price range of people who are most vulnerable to the very problem its seeking to address.
We’re in Vegas through the end of CES on January 10th. Here’s more of what the staff at The Verge has seen so far at CES 2020.
