6. LIFEDOOR

9. REACH ROBOTICS

Lifedoor's product is the
size of a tiny box, but
could save lives during
a house fire. The product

Reach Robotics has a line
of robots that take mobile
gaming off the screen
and put it in front of you.
MEKAMON combines
a smartphone-controlled
robot with augmented
reality to translate the
robot's movement into
a video game. The robot
itself, spider-like and controlled by your thumbs,
can perform whatever
is going on in one of the
many mobile games
designed for it, like an
obstacle course or a tower
defense. You can even
have two Mekamons battling it out in augmented
reality. "I wanted to change
the way people understood consumer robots,"
CEO Silas Adekunle says.
"We wanted to show people something unique by
combining the best of the
robotics world with the
best of the gaming world."

AUTOMATICALLY CLOSES
THE DOOR IT IS INSTALLED ON
WHEN A SMOKE DETECTOR
GOES OFF, then lights up

and sends a push notification to the homeowner.
When a door stays closed
in a fire, it provides precious
minutes by cutting off the
room's oxygen from being
consumed, preventing
smoke and heat from
entering the room, thus
slowing the fire from
spreading. "You can only
survive a couple of minutes
in a house fire because
the smoke is so toxic,"
says Co-Founder Ben
Docksteader. "With your
door closed, you can
save 10 to 15 minutes.
That's enough time for the
fire department to arrive
or for you to escape."

7. PETMIO
PetMio showcased a smart
nutrition system developed
for pets that learns their
dietary needs and delivers
tailored food directly to
your home. The system
combines the SMART
TRACKER - attached to
a pet's collar to develop an
activity profile for the
PetMio smartphone app -
with the SMART BOWL, a high
precision food scale with
Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. "We're able to
understand when your pet
is eating, how much they're
eating, and understand the
correlation between the
inputs and outputs of calories," explains Pedro Moras,
co-founder and CEO of
PetMio. This data is then
sent to the cloud, where an
AI algorithm analyzes it and
produces food based on
the animal's specific needs
that is shipped to the
home. PetMio begins shipping in August.

8. DRONE
INTERACTIVE
Drone Interactive,
a French startup, gives
consumers the chance
to PILOT A DRONE BY
STRAPPING ON A VR HEADSET. At their CES booth,

players flew the drone
around a small cage,
shooting virtual insects
with a controller and
headset as they competed with one another
for the highest score.
With the VR headset,
players get a first-hand,
lifelike experience.
"When you are flying
the drone, you get to see
what the drone sees,"
says Drone Interactive's
Philippe Onillon, who
envisions the technology in amusement parks
around the world. They
are developing three
experiences: an arcade
shoot 'em up, a racing
game, and a laser taglike experience.

10. HUGSY
Hugsy, a Dutch company,
hopes to give new moms
a hi-tech way to help
their newborns fall asleep.
Developed by CEO and
Creative Director Sylvie
Claes with her university
classmates during a sixmonth design project,
Hugsy offers both
A BLANKET AND A "SMART
HEARTBEAT RECORDING
DEVICE." Since babies are

prone to sleep on their
mother's chest, this device
reproduces the sound
of a mother's unique heartbeat and vibration for
infants who cannot be held.
"We're hoping to simulate
that feeling of closeness
when a baby needs to sleep
in a crib or when parents
need to go to work," Claes
says. They plan to first
launch in the Netherlands,
then the EU and the U.S.
