>> An Einstein robot to keep you company and teach you physics, a machine that folds your shirts, and a new way to project images into the air. Fun tech gadgets on display this week at the world's biggest tech show, CES. But getting here to see it all is a challenge.

And that means opportunity for innovation. I'm Reuters Jane Leng Hili here at CES in Las Vegas. And this is Honda's UNI-CUB, their personal devices that help you get around in places like airports and museums. For now, it's more of a fun ride, but Honda's concept car designer wants a better way to commute in the future.

>> What's cool about it for the last model EV is we have a electric long board skate board in the back. So if you park your car, if you work downtown or something, you can actually use that skate board. And while it's in the car, it actually charges as well.
00:00:51
>> Wanna ditch the car altogether? Then check out this scooter, Immotor GO. You might start to see them around this year. It can go 20 miles on a charge and as fast as 20 miles an hour. And it's light enough to carry on and off the subway, or you can set it to walk with you.

The next version will even follow your phone but it'll set you back $1500. If you want something that packs a bit more punch, Genzee has electric mopeds made for sharing using a phone app. This was my first time ever to drive one of these things and it was easy to ride with technology that helps it balance better.

At CES, mobility is the big buzzword, but gridlock is the big buzzkill. But even the cutest, smartest self-driving cars won't get you out of traffic. So expect more fun, small transportation gadgets to get dreamed up. And maybe by next year, CES will finally have a high-tech solution to help the more than 165,000 visitors get around.
