Re: more gagets in a our homes
I agree. What is the point of having all these nice devices when their battery life is low?  They should have a seminar talking on just about battery.  I see it happening in major cities and libraries. At my local library they have a added a power station for mobile devices.  I wouldn't mind doing less with my smartphone as long as I don't have to worry about charging it every 4 hours.

Re: more gagets in a our homes
Agreed, robots are an interesting area. Another technology that robots, smartphones, devices and vehicles, etc., require is battery technology.

From CES 2016, I am hearing a lot of good things about ECO USBCELL and from last year, the memories of StoreDot are still fresh. However, there has not been a lot of news after their initial demo concerning the battery that charges in 30 seconds.

more gagets in a our homes
from the CES I would like to see more gadgets about robots.  I was expecting that robots will be able to manage our life better.  The last cleaning room Rumba, needs more improvement. From the list of 10 I really enjoyed two gadgets, the light buld camera.  I wouldn't mind getting one of those for my house. It provides lighting and a way to monitor the outside of the house, without others noticing that I have a camera.  In terms of house protection this is a great idea.
