Bob the Mini Dishwasher, other cool health and wellness gear

Today someone asked me if CES 2022 still offered a “fix for Covid”. After all, it can become one of the best gadgets of its time, a center of future technology full of various innovations, inventions and wild ideas. Past shows have brought us the first home VCR, the Tetris, the Oculus Rift, and who can forget the toilet paper delivery robot?

Unfortunately, there was no new magic device to treat COVID this year – or even help conduct rapid tests in areas filled with omicrons – which now include Las Vegas.

But there was a cute little robot that would bite your fingers to “comfort you and brighten your day”. While this is something you won’t forget, because it’s so weird, but amazing, a few more caught my attention.

Here are the most notable gadgets that come out of CES’s health category, including health, fitness, and yes, even a stuffed animal that chews your fingers.

Hydrow rowing machine

The digital fitness industry is experiencing its “steroids” moment, figuratively, of course, and a home rowing machine called Hydrow has caused quite a stir at CES.

It’s basically a Peloton on rowing, with enthusiastic, hard-working and inspiring instructors giving you more than 3,000 live and on-demand sessions on a machine that makes you look more like life than any other rowers on the market. they will. It’s quiet and you can adjust the weight to cross the fantastic water easily with meditation or take part in a full-fledged race. It also offers scenic rows in beautiful locations such as the Valden Pool in Massachusetts and Lake Lucerne in Switzerland.

When done correctly, rowing covers 86 percent of the body’s major muscle groups, but whether you’re a beginner or an experienced athlete, it’s less impactful and easier to learn. For the past two weeks, I’ve been using it every day – and wow, the areas I didn’t even know I had muscles were hurting.

More than just 7 feet long, more than two feet wide, and almost 4 feet high, up to the top of the monitor, it takes its rightful share in your average living room. The company sells a $ 80 vertical conversion storage kit that attaches to the wall and allows for quick fixes to narrow spaces. Keep in mind that the machine weighs 145 pounds, so moving it from horizontal to vertical is just an exercise. Price – $ 2,295 + $ 38 / month subscription, but check the company’s website as I write this, they have a big sale until Sunday.

Picoo Outdoor Gaming for Kids

One for the little ones: Picoo’s “outdoor game console” promises kids ages 4 to 12 to play and run off and on the screen. The starter kit ($ 281) comes with four “consoles” – they’re screenless, flashlight-like hand-held controllers that light up and use a speaker, accelerometer, and vibrator for gaming. The set also comes with five cards that offer games such as Whack-a-Mole, Zombie Run or Lighting Bolt. To get started, the child scans the card, then completes assignments individually or as part of a team. Most importantly, it has a social character, encourages children to go out, is safe and very suitable for any special needs.

UVCed smartphone is an ultraviolet radiation cleaner

Connect UVCeed to your phone, open its app, point your phone somewhere, press the button that appears in the app’s enhanced reality, and watch its annoyances in real time.

Since the start of the pandemic, we’ve seen the launch of many gadgets that sanitize with ultraviolet light, but we’ve never seen it stick to the back of your smartphone before. UVCeed ($ 129.95) is a device slightly larger than a credit card that attaches magnetically to the back of your smartphone and promises to kill 99.9 percent of germs, bacteria and viruses, including COVID-19. .

The company said in a press release that it uses “powerful mercury-free LED UV rays and multiple sensors” to scan and clean the most common surfaces in seconds, such as keys, keyboards, remote controls and door handles. It is not safe to use on your own skin.

Its working method is simple; Connect UVCeed to your phone, open its app, point your phone somewhere, press the button that appears in the app’s enhanced reality, and see its annoyances in real time. If it senses a human or animal, the lights turn themselves off, so it is built to avoid exposure to things that should not be exposed to UV-C type radiation. It retails for $ 130 and is available for purchase now.

It is not necessary: ​​I do not need a special plumbing or anything other than a place to pour it. It consumes very little water. That’s nice. I want to put it under my armpit and walk on the block. And that saves me from having to wash those dirty glasses by hand at the end of the day, which you find lying everywhere. “
