>> Las Vegas this week is getting transformed into one massive tech lab, with self-driving car companies cruising the streets and gadget makers unveiling their latest products. For example, glasses that help the blind to see and a remote controlled glove to help amputees pick things up. I'm Reuters' Jane Lanhee Lee at CES Unveil, the media preview for the world's biggest tech and gadget show.
This is my fourth time covering the show. And it's not the drones, virtual reality, or robots that are turning heads, it's the startups that are bringing innovation to unexpected areas, like hamburgers. Impossible Foods CEO Pat Brown is launching the Impossible Burger 2.0 at the show with celebrity chef Mary Sue Milliken.
It's a plant-based burger born in the lab that's sizzles and tastes like a real patty.>> So CES is the most important technology show in the world. It's where the innovations that will define the future for consumers are introduced. Food is the most important and the most pervasive technology in the world.
Two years ago we cracked the molecular code of meat. And we launched a burger that's being served in some of the best restaurants in the world as meat. And today we're launching a burger that's better in every way that matters to consumers.>> New tech is also finding its way into underwear at CES.
Check out these pantyhose by Sheertex. Pulling, pulling, pulling. So these are quite thin and I'm advised to pull as hard as I can, they won't rip. So the technology would be our proprietary knit, which involves first extruding our fiber and making it thin, it's never ever been thin.
And it's the product that's been used in bullet proof vest, in climbing equipment, as well as mixing of the fiber to make it strong and stretchy. A pair of these will set you back $99, but hey, you won't need another pair for a while, as they won't do this.
But one thing tech can't fix, a government shutdown. CES says that some federal government speakers will be canceling their trip. But there's still plenty of other entertainment here awaiting, like this bread bot. Or even this suitcase by ForwardX, using artificial intelligence and vision technology to follow you around.
