It’s usually miles and miles of showrooms and exhibits, but this year the Consumer Electronics Show is completely virtual.
While most of the world spent much of 2020 in a "new normal," the folks at Samsung were working hard to launch what they're calling "a better normal."
Samsung unveiled its new JetBot 90 AI+. It’s a camera-equipped cleaning robot that is smart enough to clean up without getting caught up on obstacles.
Other showstoppers included a four-door bespoke flex fridge that allows you to change colors and configurations, so it grows with your family. It includes a beverage center with a filtered water pitcher that stays ready and full. It will be available this spring.
For those focused on family, a fridge will suggest recipes by sensing the ingredients you already have, shop for and schedule delivery of food based on a new family meal, show you a live cooking class to execute it and then set your oven to cook it.
In home theater, Samsung adding to its already impressive design solutions -- like the frame which will become thinner in 2021 and the Sero bringing both portrait and landscape displays in a single unit.
Now they're taking things outdoors with the new weather resistant Terrace and the Premier, a short throw projector with a picture of up to 130 inches and a brand new 110-inch micro LED. It has a quad view that could allow you to split your screen four ways.
Samsung also concentrating on sustainability, with packaging that can be upcycled into furniture and a TV remote made from recycled plastic which uses ambient room light to recharge itself.
