My Special Aflac Duck – a comforting soft robot takes the role of caregiver for people fighting cancer. It’s part toy, part robot and part medical device. It has sensors that react to touch, a microphone and light sensor that adapt to different environments and adjust the duck’s behavior. When you hold the duck, it is incredibly life-like with natural movements.
The price for each duck is approximately $200, but Aflac promised to donate these robot companions at no cost to any children newly diagnosed with cancer.

If you want a dinosaur to meet and greet your clients or guests, you should definitely buy such window for your front desk. The display was created by a Danish company. It’s a single piece of clear 64-inch glass. It simply reflects an image that’s projected from your television or monitor. All the projections appear as if they are overlaid onto the world around you.
Hopefully we will see more and more inventions from CES-2018 tech in Dallas businesses. It’s obvious that some technologies need an initial investment. But in the end the businesses evolving around high tech get much more revenue.
