Pizza robots. Pet robots. Sex tech. CES 2020 will feature them all, and more

id=»article-body» class=»row» section=»article-body»> This story is part of CES 2020, complete coverage of the showroom floor for the hottest new tech gadgets around. Now playing: Watch this: Lovot, the love robot, offers a warm hug of friendship… 2:29 As 2020 grinds into gear, CNET will be kick-starting a new decade with a trip to the Nevada desert for the annual tech bonanza CES. When we arrive in Las Vegas, we expect to be greeted by a bunch of new TVs, scores of eccentric gadgets and a whole gaggle of robots.

We’re still some years away from robots outnumbering humans at the show, but every year it does seem as though more bots are present on the show floor. In the past decade we’ve seen robots become more complex, more affordable and more diverse. The number of contexts in which they play a role in our lives — from the home to the workplace and beyond — have expanded to provide us with a vision of how humans and robots will coexist and collaborate in the future.

At CES, 야마토게임 we’ll likely see this broad range of robots on full display. Among the CES Innovation Award nominees alone there’s the latest Roomba robot vacuum cleaner, an esports fighting robot and the show-stealing star of CES 2019, Groove X’s huggable companion robot Lovot. 

Also back for the show will be the latest and greatest version of Omron’s ping-pong-playing robot, Forpheus, and Lora DiCarlo’s sex toy Ose, which is finally ready and on sale after being awarded an Innovation Award in 2019.

We can’t wait to be surprised and delighted by the bots on display at the show. Ahead of CES kicking off next week, here are three things we’re particularly excited to see.

Get yourself a pizza
We’re already hungry for robot-made pizza.

Picnic One of the best reasons to visit Vegas is the sheer array of excellent food on offer, and at CES there’ll be one more option as Seattle-based company Picnic brings its pizza-assembly robot to the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Picnic’s robot can produce up to 300 12-inch personalized pizzas per hour, and already is doing so at T-Mobile Park in Seattle. In the future, the technology could well be adapted to make up other dishes, including buns, bowls, tortillas and plates. For now, though, pizza is the focus, and we’ll be sure to get our best taste-testers on the case of checking for even dispersal of cheese, tomato, salami and other fixings.

Picnic will reveal the exact location of its robots on its website ahead of CES — we’ll race you to the front of the queue.

Pets versus robots
Tombot is designed for seniors with dementia.

Tombot Comparing robots to one another is usually a pointless pursuit, given how diverse they are in both build and purpose. The one exception is when judging which robot is the cutest — and there’s a lot of competition.

The cutest robots are often designed for the home, either as toys or as companions. The best-known of these is Sony’s Aibo, the robo-dog pet surrogate. At CES, we expect to see a number of robots who could rival Aibo for your affections.

Shenzhen-based Elephant Robotics is listed as attending the show. And although the company historically has focused on making robotic arms, we’re hoping to see another project it’s been working on. 

In December, it put its robotic feline MarsCat on Kickstarter, and we’re hoping to play with the purring, pouncing bionic robo-cat at the show. We’re also crossing our fingers that we may meet Tombot, a realistic Labrador companion robot designed for seniors with dementia.

MarsCat … here, kitty kitty.

Elephant Robotics As well as robots that are pets, we’ll also see robots for pets at the show, including the LavvieBot smart litter tray for cats and the launch of Mia, a robot that will play with your precious puss or pooch and 신천지게임 [click the following document] dispense dry food and treats.

Righteous robots
One big trend at CES will be the focus on robots for good. A series of talks and panel discussions will look at the ways robots are helping humans, including the role they’ll increasingly play in saving lives and saving the planet.

The sessions will examine robots as forces for good, looking at how they’re assisting humans in preserving rare marine species deep under the sea and in exploring in outer space — the moon, Mars and beyond.

Meanwhile, Bosch will present a sensor system that’ll ride around on NASA’s Astrobee robot, which roams the International Space Station, to detect sounds that could indicate technical faults.

We’re also expecting to see a number of advances in surgical robots and robotic hands, as well as robots designed to help with care and recovery.

For all the robot news and other announcements coming out of CES, be sure to keep your eyes fixed on CNET Jan. 5-10.

How to get the Disney Plus bundle if you already have Hulu

id=»article-body» class=»row» section=»article-body»> Bundle your Disney Plus, Hulu and ESPN Plus accounts for the best deal.

Sarah Tew/CNET If you signed up for a subscription to the Disney Plus streaming platform before bundling with Hulu and ESPN Plus was an option, you still have time to switch to this bundled offer. And if you already subscribe to Hulu or ESPN Plus, don’t worry because you can combine those streaming services with Disney Plus to get a discounted price to use all three together. 

The Disney Plus bundle costs $13 per month, which saves you $5 each month. You can buy the bundle by visiting Disney, ESPN Plus or Hulu. If you’ve already got a Hulu or ESPN account, you’ll need to combine your accounts on your desktop. Here’s what to do.

Disney Plus offers Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and more.

Sarah Tew/CNET Bundle Disney Plus, Hulu and ESPN Plus
1. Create a Disney Plus account at DisneyPlus.com. You’ll enter your billing and credit card information to sign up.

2. Once your account is created, click on your profile icon. It’s located in the upper right corner.

3. Select Account.

4. Under the Subscription section, click Switch to Disney bundle.

Now you can bundle your Hulu and ESPN Plus accounts with Disney Plus.

Use the same email when signing up for each service.

However, you’ll need to call customer support and change your current subscription to the month-to-month bundle option. Contact customer service website

What if I decide to switch to the ad-free Hulu subscription?
If you purchased the bundle through Disney Plus, you’re stuck with the ad-supported plan unless you cancel your bundle. If you want the ad-free version, you’ll need to subscribe directly through Hulu.

Make sure you’re subscribed to ad-free Hulu before bundling with Disney Plus.

Sarah Tew/CNET Can I keep my ad-free Hulu subscription?
If you’re already subscribed to ad-free Hulu, you can still keep it when you bundle your accounts. However, you’ll have to pay the additional cost to Hulu because Disney will only credit $6 toward Hulu.

If you sign up for the bundle and then decide you want the ad-free experience, you’ll have to cancel your subscription. This also applies to the Hulu Plus Live TV plan.
