LAS VEGAS – The world of technology dropped in Las Vegas this week for the Consumer Electronics Show – one of the biggest events of the year
Analysts, exhibitors and media have studied new technologies that could change our future – and some who may not even get through next year. Among the showstoppers, you will find products that you did not even know you needed until you saw them in all their (sometimes confusing) glory.
Here are eight things you did not know you needed until now:  OK, this is really nice. The Heatworks Duo carafe instantly heats or cools the water depending on the side from which it is poured.
Preparing tea? Put some water in the Duo carafe (which doubles as a filter), then pour from the right side. Are you parched after a race? Pour us to the left and you immediately have fresh water.
It's as if your Britta and your kettle had a baby.
The only problem? The company has not yet set a release date or a price, so keep an eye on their website.

The BreadBot is a bakery machine that mixes, kneads, bakes and cools the bread without any human intervention . Oh, and can make 235 loaves a day. Once the bread has cooled down, you can press a button to choose the bread you want and become a bread vending machine.
Unless you have a huge family or do not feed a small army, you probably do not need a BreadBot in your home – but you can start to see them in your local bakeries or grocery stores. You can order your bread on an app and specify what ingredients you want your bread to have and when you collect it. And if you're feeling really imaginative, you can even hack your bread with personalized messages.

You like that barber shop with warm towel when are you shaving? Gillette wants to help you recreate it with a heated razor. Instead of adding more blades, the razor has a "heating bar" that will keep your face, legs, armpits warm (and anything else you shave).
This is not a nonsense of the Dollar Shave Club, though. The razor costs $ 150.

If you ever "revived" while filling a pot with water to boil, the help is in arrival! Kohler will release the Sensate smart tap, which will allow you to turn the water on and off or dispense a measured amount of water, all through voice commands.
Never reach that glass measuring cup again (unless, of course, you are not) cooking with something other than water). The tap is also equipped with temperature indicators and efficiency sensors.
The tap is not yet available, but you can ask the company to notify you when it is available here. The price is not available yet.
Have you ever had an annoying raccoon to steal your cat's food? Maybe your puppy likes to eat some nibbles that are not meant for him. Vook's Mookie pet bowl wants to solve this small problem.
The bowl has a front camera that recognizes your pets and will open the flap of food and store the correct food for the animal that is approaching the bowl. It's a bit like facial recognition on the iPhone – but for your pets.
The bowl is priced at $ 189.
North Focals is a smart eyewear enabled for Alexa that has a small built-in projector that slides lightly, bouncing on the retina to become a hologram that can be seen while wearing glasses.
If you want to check the weather or your text messages, you can ask Alexa, and the result will appear in front of you, almost as if you were in an Iron Man suit. It remains to be seen, however, if the smart glasses really take foot
Focals currently costs $ 999 per pair

Apparently, the 80% Women wear bras that do not fit well with them, according to Cathy Devine, Soma's vice president of innovation, an intimate women's underwear company. Somainnofit, an intelligent bra that measures your measurements, aims to change it.
The smart bra looks like a sports bra with built-in sensors and Bluetooth inside. Once the wearer wears the bra, he can then press a button on the accompanying app, and the bra will immediately give it his measurements, then list a group of bras he can buy (from Soma, of course) .
the bra costs $ 59, but for a limited time, you can buy it for $ 25 and get a coupon for the same amount by buying a Soma bra.
If you've always wanted to live in the world of Harry Potter, this chess set will bring you a little closer with a chess set just like a wizard's ( less all the violence).
SquareOff Grand Kingdom's clever chess moves pieces by itself and you can play against 20 different difficulty levels. You can also play against remote human opponents who use the app to tell their pieces where to move on the board.
The board costs $ 369 for the Kingdom set and $ 445 for the Grand Kingdom set.
