AKIKO FUJITA: Yahoo Finance is on the ground here in Las Vegas at CES 2024. We've had a chance to spend all week walking the floor here. So take a look at some of the most entertaining gadgets. Take a look.

Hello. Nice to meet you.

- Hello. Nice to meet you too.

AKIKO FUJITA: Ready? How's my form. Fourth time, here we go.

- Yeah.


We are in front of the [? Pass ?] XR booth. You see, this guy is inside virtual reality. It allows users to build all the tools to create music in virtual reality. I mean, this guy's got it going. I'm going to give it a shot. All right, here we go.

- All right, here we go. Yeah.

AKIKO FUJITA: OK, now we've got multiple layers of beats going.

We are at the booth for Baracoda. It's a French health tech company that's developed this mirror. It's an interactive mirror that uses artificial intelligence.

- How's your day been so far?

AKIKO FUJITA: My day has not been great.

- Just like a rainy day makes way for sunshine, your mood can improve.

AKIKO FUJITA: I'm at the booth for Doosan Group, where this AI robot is about to make me a cocktail.

- So this is Mixmaster Moodie, our cocktail bartender.

AKIKO FUJITA: Mixmaster Moodie.

- Yeah, it's going to tell you what kind of cocktail you need based upon your mood and facial recognition.

AKIKO FUJITA: I look that way?

- Yep, you're going to look up there.

AKIKO FUJITA: Cheers. It's like pineapple. What else is in it? Do we know?

- ChatGPT secret.

AKIKO FUJITA: ChatGPT secret, I'm told.

I feel like I'm getting judged on my driving skills. I am. Press green?

- Yeah.

AKIKO FUJITA: Oh. Oh my-- oh my god, oh.

Are you horrified, Rich?


AKIKO FUJITA: I'm here with Devon Goldberg. He is a staff engineer at Goodyear. He's going to walk me through this simulation.

DEVON GOLDBERG: We're going to show you a braking distance demo. So we're going to start you off with the ABS tuned to thinking that it's a new tire, but you actually have a worn tire on the road. All right, and brake.

AKIKO FUJITA: Oh my god, did I just hit that deer?

DEVON GOLDBERG: Well, you might have.

- This is the future of the toilet. As you saw, it automatically opens as you walk up to it. It's going to close and flush behind it. The black-on-black version will run the retail around $10,500.



AKIKO FUJITA: So this is just concept, but somebody's got to spend a lot of time in the bathroom, right--

- Yeah, yeah, yeah.

AKIKO FUJITA: --to really appreciate these toilets.

- This is the center stone of your bathroom. This is the showpiece.

AKIKO FUJITA: Oh, wow. Look at this. I feel like I'm in first class. It's just what I need right now. I'm ticklish.

Oh my god, 13 more minutes, 19 minutes left. Oh my god, this is really intense.
