CES 2013 features smart fork, Android oven and much more

A smart fork, electronic paper and an Android oven are just some of the weird and wonderful new innovations unveiled at CES 2013 in Las Vegas before the official start of the conference.

Smart fork

The Consumer Electronics Show seems to get bigger and bigger every year, with the world’s tech geeks and experts coming together in Sin City to flex their brain muscles and show the world what the future holds.

For us onlookers, CES 2013 is a chance to see the weird and wacky technologies that could become part of our everyday lives in the coming years, raising an eyebrow or two along the way. We thought it would be fun to pick some of the stand-out CES 2013 show-stoppers for you to marvel at in our list below.

Smart Fork
Perhaps coming in handy at this time of year when we’re all trying to shed some pounds after an over-indulgent December, ‘smart cutlery’ is designed to assist you in making healthier eating choices and changing your habits when it comes to food by pulsating when the fork has entered your mouth too frequently in one sitting. The smart forks and smart spoons are expected to retail at around $99 when they’re released in April.

Android Oven
With attentions increasingly turning to lending us a helpful hand in the kitchen, the world’s first Android powered oven works with your smartphone and even suggests recipes to you.

Electronic Paper
The PaperTab, a new PC makes use of a bendy, flexible plastic material with the aim of emulating the behaviour and feel of paper.

Have you seen any other interesting revelations in the coverage of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2013)? Let us know in the comments below.

Voting takes place via Facebook and Twitter, so it only takes a couple of clicks.

How to Vote

2 – Find Darwin just over halfway down the page (the same picture as the above)
