๐Ÿ† Roav Bolt – Smart Car Charger Powered by Google Assistant (Produced by Anker Innovations)

Roav Bolt โ€“ Smart Car Charger Powered by Google Assistant (Produced by Anker Innovations)

Roav Bolt โ€“ Smart Car Charger Powered by Google Assistant (Produced by Anker Innovations)

Following the release of last year’s Roav Viva – a smart car charger featuring Amazon’s Alexa – Anker Innovations announced at CES 2019 that a new car charger would be coming to market in the upcoming weeks. The Roav Bolt finds its intelligence powered via Google Assistant, with the battery-charging capabilities staying true to Anker’s long-running history of affordable, high-quality power accessories. Following my review of the Roav Viva last year, I found several areas that could have been improved on for an upcoming model, such as size of the unit, utilizing the smart assistant already integrated on a large number of smartphone operating system, and slightly faster charging. The Roav Bolt is poised to address these concerns by allowing users to expand their existing Google ecosystem beyond their home – the inclusion of Google Assistant speaks to Android users and allows a driver to, among other functions, execute a larger number of commands, including mobile orders and daily updates via Google Maps. Additionally, the size reduction of the Roav Bolt itself is very appealing, especially for those with cigarette lighters in awkward or tight places. If you are like me and have integrated yourself squarely into Google’s ecosystem, or if you’re searching for an attractive, two-port car charger with the power to back it up, your search may be over. Now available for pre-order at goroav.com for $49.99 USD.

GIGA-BYTE Technology Co., Ltd.

GIGA-BYTE Technology Co., Ltd.

GIGA-BYTE Technology Co., Ltd.: one of the few exhibits that I saw doing something different at CES 2019.

Gigabyte had its liquid cooling system on display at this year’s CES and I was amazed at its structure. The components / peripherals are housed in Gigabyte’s two-phase liquid immersion cooling system, allowing the system to remain cool throughout use.

The technology might seem confusing to some but for those who know or have heard of the liquid cooling system, this may be the best way to cool your computer.

๐Ÿ† Pigzbe – A Piggy Wallet, Not a Piggy Bank

Best of CES 2019 by Katie Hernandez

Pigzbe.

Pigzbe.

One of the most interesting startups to showcase at CES this year, Pigzbe definitely caught my eye in both design and function. Founded by Filippo Yacob, Adam Amos, and Jon Marshall, Pigzbe is marked at as a “piggy wallet,” with a design focused on teaching children about earning and saving funds and how to spend responsibly while also providing hands-on education for the use and understanding of digital currency in the new age. With an initial Kickstarter goal of $50,000, Pigzbe now stands over $107,000 at the time of publication and is primed for the first wave of pre-orders to be released June 2019. Built with a sleek, modern design that integrates kid-friendly responses through Pigzbe and the companion app, your child can:

  • Earn and save funds from the completion of tasks and chores
  • Learn to set financial goals for themselves
  • Gain independence through the ability to spend funds in the real world (with approval from parents)
  • Visualize allowances and to see actually see the movement of funds coming in and out during each encounter

The visual learning style of Pigzbe is a huge step in helping your child understand the importance of financial responsibility, as the world of digital currency has made staying on top of electronic spending difficult even for adults. Providing a means for a child to comprehend the movement of money in a new way may even help to educate a generation of children already unfairly influenced by app and game developers pushing in-app purchases and “pay-to-play” game structures. In addition to education, there are also the added implications for the self-confidence and independence a child discovers when allowed to participate in a financial transaction and to make financial decisions for themselves. By understanding the work-earn-save/spend journey, children may come to not only execute responsible spending on their part, but they may even come to appreciate the financial decisions made by their parents. In addition, parents can set tasks and chores for their child, send allowances and gifts directly to reward special accomplishments (such as a good grade) and to create a family network of their own design.

RoBoHon.

RoBoHon: Sharp’s Mobile communication robot was a surprise to see at CES 2019.

It recognizes you and begins to communicate in ways that will blow you away. The most incredible thing about RoBoHon is that it’s a phone as well.

I was amazed with the product and enjoyed talking to the tiny robot, while watching it dance, communicate through jokes and just simply entertain.

I didn’t get a chance to try out the phone features but the robot itself was a joy to interact with and can become the next best thing in communication.

Arozzi Vernazza Gaming Chair.

Modeled after seats used in motorsports, Arozzi Vernazza is definitely the most comfortable chair I have used.
