CES walkaround: The Drum takes a look at world-changing tech from Belkin, IBM and more

CES is over for another year, but don't worry if you missed out – The Drum’s editor-in-chief Gordon Young has you covered. While on the showroom floor in Las Vegas, he took a trip around CES 2019 to highlight some of the more interesting, world-changing technology he found.

Here is an overview of some of the contraptions he discovered along the way:

Belkin’s plumbing monitor: A platform that aims to monitor and save on wasted water, developed with Phyn. The water control system which fits onto a point and guides users through water use measurement.

Bot Boxer: An AI boxing training device that gets harder to hit the more the user spars with it through learning body movement and reactions while supplying health data.

Vault Logic: A crypto-enabled ATM system which allows users to turn their currency into crypto coins and withdraw cash from other ATMs and expands access to banking infrastructure as a result.

DS3: A hand wash capsule from P&G Life Labs which only works when water is applied, meaning a lesser use of plastic packaging as it comes wrapped in bamboo, and in turn saves every as it lessens transport.

Driverless Pod: A pod/car that automatically takes its passenger to their desired destination, which was developed through a joint venture by Aurrigo, IBM and Via and is being tested in Milton Keynes.
