CES 2020 is showcasing the future in your health
The Consumers Electronics Show (CES) is the biggest annual showcase in the tech industry. 2.9 million square feet of new gadgets and innovative ideas. Tech geeks walk for miles on the show floor checking out emerging ideas, practical new gadgets, cute robots and gotta-see-it-to-believe-it kinda gear. But what does this have to do with health and wellness, Shane? I’ll tell you. They are a few gadgets on the expo floor that’ll help with your mental and physical health. I’ve picked a few to check out a bit closer:
Your emotional support robot is at CES
Emotional support animals are very important to those that need a companion in their lives to keep grounded. They work wonders in overcoming grief, depression and loneliness. Enter Tombot, the emotional support Robot. The little guy has been designed by Jam Henson’s Creature Shop and is certainly cute. Tombot is touch sensitive and is there to provide comfort to residence in retirement homes and others who would benefit from a pet, but can’t deal with a real animal. Tombot has a Kickstarter going. Check it out here.
There’s a temporary tattoo printer at CES
The temp tattoo has always been available. They are available at stores, order custom ones online or design your own at home. But Prinker is a new device that makes temporary tattoos mobile for spontaneous people who don’t want to commit to permanent ink. The handheld printer applies cosmetic-grade ink to the skin in black or colour just by passing it quickly over the chosen body part once. Beware, it does wash off easily with soap and water so don’t expect it to have a long shelf-life. Currently the creators are selling Prinker to business’ only.

Meet your new sex buddy – Lora DiCarlo’s Osé
My Geeks and Beats boss Alan Cross saw this over the weekend at CES and he just had to post a video on his Instagram. Meet Lora DiCarlo’s Ose. It’s a sex toy that launched a thousand articles when its CES innovation award was revoked last year. Now, after a little sexy talk, CES is allowing sex-tech products in the show. Ose is unique. It’s a robotic massager and it’s $290 USD. Available now. Find your new favourite massage therapist here.
