Consumer Electronics Show is just opened. I want to get your rundown of some of the cool things that I have seen so far on the first night of a press preview. We're going to open with smart, shoes and smart belts. Yes. They're smart. Everything. I kinda like these shoes because they come from a French company. They have built in sensors, and they can sense if you're gonna fall down they will send a message to France. And relatives saying, hey, Jeff is just fallen come take care of them. And they have an interesting pricing model that I would never go for. I don't know about you. It's interesting thirty five dollars a month or just over four hundred dollars yearly for these shoes. But you get new pair over year. Okay. So then there's the smart belt from company called Welt two hundred dollars for the belt Ican also detect. Your potential falls by analyzing you're walking patterns, and it can help keep you on track. Diet wise by sending you push notifications to stand up when you've been sitting too long or to scold you for eating too much. The belt has just been released how about a mailbox for people worried about porch thieves great idea. It's called the parcel guard. It sells for four hundred dollars. It's a forty pound slab of steel that lets the mail carrier slip in the package on top. And there's connected camera inside that lets the consumer check in from work to confirm that the package indeed arrived in a safe great idea. And because when you get home you can unlock this thing with a digital code from the app, which is all great. But this thing is a monster. It's giant. It's really big great idea. But way, too big you've got to have a really big house to put this on your porch. Now, you know, I'm a camera. Geek, so there were. To cameras there that I loved remember when we talked about Facebook's portal video chat device that has a cool camera that can track your every move which I loved I just didn't like it came from Facebook because I didn't trust it. Well to other companies here at C have cameras that can move all around and basically be your director for you. They track your face, and they will follow your every move. And unlike the portal, you can record stuff on it. So the hundred and forty dollars pivo is a tiny device that connects to a tripod, and it allows you to Brzezinski grammars in other content creators to shoot themselves and be followed without the need of a camera person. Which is great on the higher end. There's the uh spot. It is a five hundred dollar plus worlds. First cameras got ten lenses. So it's obviously higher resolution. It has a microphone jacket records to micro Esti cards. I can't wait to play with this. The Foley mate. It's. A device that automatically sorts close for you sells for thousand dollars. It's also mammoth mammoth, I can't imagine who's going to have room for this thing. But if you have a thousand dollars, I guess you have room right, Michelle, that's Michelle multi as line, and I just want to honor her by repeating it. And finally an airbag for cyclists. Why not right does a French company that makes airbags for motorcyclists and horse riders in now it has airbags for cyclists? It's a smart bag selling for six hundred fifty dollars with sensors built into no win to inflate the bag not over bombs, but went in a real accident. Now, I'll be back on the floor.
