The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is a grand spectacle showcasing the forefront of technological innovation.
From advanced gadgets to groundbreaking solutions in artificial intelligence, robotics, and sustainable technology, the annual trade show brings together industry leaders, tech enthusiasts, and curious minds eager to explore the latest advancements that will shape the future.
From 9 to 12 January, the CES 2024 in Las Vegas is set to be a groundbreaking platform for unveiling the latest innovations in cleaning and laundry technologies, promising to revolutionise the way we approach household chores.
Several leading brands will showcase state-of-the-art products that blend advanced technologies with convenience and efficiency. Here are the ones you should watch for at the Consumer Electronics Show this year.
Samsung’s Bespoke Jet Bot Combo
In a recent press release, Samsung Electronics announced that they will take centre stage at CES 2024 with the introduction of their Bespoke Jet Bot Combo™, an AI-applied vacuum and mop robot cleaner designed to enhance the user experience during and after cleaning.
Leveraging advanced AI Object Recognition, this robotic cleaner not only distinguishes objects but also recognises spaces and home layouts, providing precise navigation and suggesting “no-go zones” for targeted cleaning.
The high-tech vacuum even has the ability to detect stains, autonomously returning to the clean station to heat mop pads with high-temperature steam and water before tackling the stained area.
With powerful spinning mops at 170 RPM, it actively scrubs off even the toughest stains, reducing the need for user intervention.
The AI Floor Detect feature ensures optimised cleaning without causing damage by distinguishing between hard floors and carpets and adjusting suction power accordingly.
The Bespoke Jet Bot Combo™ also prioritises the hygiene of the last-minute cleaning experience with a 3-step Total Cleaning System for mop pads, including auto wash, steam cleaning, and auto dry with hot air.
LG Electronics Set to Revolutionise Clothing Care
LG Electronics has announced they will unveil a spectrum of cutting-edge products at CES 2024, but the spotlight will be on the LG Styler.
This revolutionary clothing care solution features a handheld, high-pressure steamer, Dynamic Moving Hanger™, and Dual TrueSteam™ technology.
The handheld steamer simplifies the process of removing wrinkles from clothes, and LG’s Dual TrueSteam™ technology is a true breakthrough in fabric care.
With two heaters to boil water and generate steam, users have precise control over the volume and strength of the steam spray. This ensures optimal care for delicate fabrics and powers the hygiene cycle, eliminating over 99.99% of germs and 11 different types of harmful bacteria.
The dehumidification function collects up to 10 litres of moisture as it goes, preventing clothes or living spaces from becoming damp.
Meanwhile, the Dynamic Moving Hanger™ has been upgraded from its predecessor, which sought to remove dust from clothes by moving side-to-side.
The innovative new system goes one step further—with enhanced dust removal, deodorisation, and wrinkle mitigation through a twisting and rotating mechanism, the LG Styler ensures that every fabric receives tailored care.
Roborock and GE Appliances: Innovation Award Honourees 2024
The CES Innovation Awards are held annually at the tradeshow, honouring the most outstanding products in various categories.
The CES Honourees in the Home Appliances category this year feature two washer-dryers from industry-leading Roborock and GE Appliances.
Roborock’s Zeo One is the company’s first washing machine product—the Chinese company was previously known for its robotic mops and brooms.
The Zeo One merges washing and drying capabilities into a single unit. Unlike traditional dryers, the Zeo-cycle™ moderate temperature drying technology allows precise AI-controlled drying, ensuring delicate materials like silk and cashmere can be dried quickly without damage.
The high-tech appliance even has a self-cleaning system that automatically collects lint and eliminates allergens and bacteria from the machine.
Meanwhile, GE Appliances™ UltraFast Combo with Ventless Heat Pump Technology promises to wash and dry a giant load in about two hours.
These washing and drying times have been unheard of before now.
Boasting 50% more energy-efficient drying and eliminating the need for a dryer vent, this combo requires only a 120V plug, providing unparalleled flexibility in placement.
Hisense’s Smart Built-In Dishwasher
Innovations in dishwashers are also highly anticipated at the CES 2024. The Smart Built-In Dishwasher featuring Autodose & AutoDry by Hisense takes dishwashing to the next level, another nominee for the Home Appliance Honoree Innovation Award, chosen by a panel of expert judges.
This dishwasher is the first in the United States to offer liquid detergent auto-dosing, simplifying the user experience.
Homeowners can load their dishes into the appliance, select a relevant program, and have pre-loaded detergent automatically dispensed.
With the ability to dispense detergent for up to one month, users can initiate the dishwashing process with a single click, making kitchen cleanup more convenient than ever.
These innovative products announced to be showcased at CES 2024 collectively signify a shift in how we approach cleaning and laundering.
The integration of AI and automation promises greater convenience, and the innovative products are poised to redefine our household routines, making cleaning and laundering tasks more efficient, enjoyable, and environmentally friendly.
