krastase-hair-coach-ces-2017Kerastase Hair Coach: Losing hair? One of the reasons could be you aren t brushing your hair right.

spartan-boxers-ces-2017Spartan radiation-blocking boxers: It s widely believed that the radiation from mobile phones adversely affect men s sperm. While that hasn t stopped the usage of phones, Spartan feels the solution is to protect the precious package from the inside. Meet a pair of boxers that have silver woven into the cotton fabric creating a protective electromagnetic shield. Whether they really work is anyone s guess, but these boxers will set you back by $45 (Rs 3,000 approximately).

aire-ces-2017FoodMarble AIRE: While there are apps that can track the calorie intake in foods, here s a new gadget that will tell you which foods will make you gassy. AIRE by FoodMarble is a breathalyzer-like device that you blow into for a few seconds. The device monitors FODMAP (Fermentable Oligo-, Di-, Mono-saccharides and Polyols) levels in your breath to tell you just how flatulent you can get. You can pre-order AIRE for $99 (Rs 6,700 approximately) on the company s website.

bactrack-skyn-ces-2017BACtrack Skyn: Drinking and driving is bad, even if you ve only had a couple. But how do you know exactly how much alcohol is in your system? Breathalyzers aren t really portable, and that is something BACtrack is changing. It s launched Skyn, an Apple Watch band that takes a reading every second, while an app will display a graph detailing your exact alcohol level. The best part is that the Skyn can also be used independently as a smartband. BACtrack s Skyn goes on sale later this year for $99.

taclim-vr-shoes-ces-2017Taclim VR shoes: Virtual Reality is the fast-growing trend, and this could be the year where we see a bunch of VR accessories. Japanese company Cerevo showcased Taclim VR, a pair of motion-controlled shoes that provide haptic feedback. So basically when you walk on different surfaces in the virtual reality world, or kick an enemy where it hurts, you will feel it. Taclim VR shoes will cost between $1,000-1,500 (Rs 102,000 approximately) when it launches later this year.

catspad-ces-2017Catspad: If you are worried about how much your cat is eating, or find the task of feeding your pet multiple times a day an arduous task, there is now help. Catspad is basically a smart pet feeder, which basically automates the entire process of feeding your cat. By connecting to a smartphone app, the feeder can feed your cat with dry food and fresh water. You can set the timing of food delivery, while also controlling how much food and water is delivered. The app also gives users feedback on the consumption pattern. The Catspad is available through Kickstarter for $199 (Rs 13,500 approximately).

parihug-ces-2017Parihug: This is essentially a connected teddy bear that lets you hug your loved one who is away via internet. When someone hugs a bear, the sensors on the bear you hold will vibrate to simulate a hug. The harder one hugs the bear, the stronger the response at the other end. In case you miss a hug, the bear will send you an alert on your smartphone via Bluetooth.
