LAS VEGAS – The tech world arrived this week in Las Vegas for the Consumer Electronics Show – one of the industry's biggest events of the year.
Analysts, exhibitors and media saw the new technologies that could change our future – and some may not even succeed next year. In the midst of the showstoppers, you'll find products that you did not even know you needed until you saw them in all their (sometimes confusing) glory.
Here are eight things that you did not know you needed before:  OK, that's actually pretty cool. The Heatworks duo decanter heats or cools your water immediately, depending on which side you pour.
make tea? Add some water to the duo carafe (which also serves as a filter) and then pour it from the right. Are you dehydrated after a run? Pour left and you will have instant cold water.
It's as if your Britta and your kettle have a baby.
The only problem? The company has not yet set a release date or price. Keep an eye on the website.

The BreadBot is a bread maker that mixes, kneads, bakes and cools bread without any human intervention. Oh, and it can make 235 loaves a day. Once the bread has cooled, you can use a button to choose which loaf you want, and it becomes a bread machine.
If you do not have a huge family or feed a small army, you probably do not need BreadBot your home – but you may see them at your local bakeries or grocery stores. You can order your bread in an app and specify which ingredients your bread should have and when you want to pick it up. And if you really feel down, you can even engrave your loaf with personalized messages.

Do you like the Hot Towel barber shop when you shave? Gillette would like to help you restore that with a heated razor. Instead of adding extra blades, the razor has a "heater bar" that keeps your face, legs, armpits (and whatever you are shaving) warm during the process.
However, this is not nonsense for the Dollar Shave Club. The razor costs $ 150.

Currently, Focals cost $ 999 per pair.

Obviously 80 percent of women wear bras Cathy Devine, vice president of innovation at Soma, a women's apparel company, says that they do not suit them well. The somainnofit, an intelligent bra that takes your measurements, should change that.
The smart bra looks kinda like a sports bra with built-in sensors and Bluetooth. Once the wearer puts on the bra, she can press a button in the companion app, and the bra immediately gives her the measurements and then lists a number of bras she can buy (of course, from Soma).
The BH costs $ 59, but for a limited time, you can buy it for $ 25 and get a coupon for the same amount when you buy a Soma bra.
