5 household appliances you cannot live without!

This week the Consumer Electronics Show is running in Las Vegas in the US.  The show highlights new, improved versions of some of our basic household appliances, as well as some brand new inventions.

Here we take a look at some of the highlights:

 

Double drum washing machine

If you want to wash your delicates and your gym gear at the same time, then the wi-fi enabled LG Twin Wash washing machine allows you to do this. With two separate drums and two separate water lines, there is no chance of colours running. Great for multi-taskers!

Solar powered stove

For the eco-friendly, then The GoSun Stove, on display at CES Unveiled, is a barbeque-like device that cooks food by using solar power. A version is already in sale in the UK, where the website says that even cloudy days won’t stop it working!

Outdoor camera

Presence, from French firm Netatmo, is launching an outdoor camera that connects to wi-fi networks. It is unlike other surveillance units in it can distinguish between people, cars and animals. There is also the option to record to a secure micro-SD card or to a personal server.

Speak Chinease

If you travel to China or Japan and don’t speak the lingo, then ili, a pendant that is an English language translator, may be just what you need. The beauty of the device is that it is standalone – you do not need to connect to wi-fi 3G/4G or any other internet connection. The second generation model will enable you to translate in French, Thai and Korean.

Milking it

Never run out of milk again with the Smarter Mat. Simply lay the mat in your fridge, place your milk bottle on it, and when your milk supply starts to get low, the mat will alert you! The Smarter Mat isn’t just a milk monitor – they are also designed to be placed in kitchen cupboards or on worktops, depending on where food is stored. The mat gives a real-time reading of how much of a food is left in a carton or bag placed on top of it, thanks to a weight sensor inside.

 

We hope you have enjoyed this sneak peek of 5 household appliances that you just cannot live without (err… perhaps). What do you think of some of them – are they very clever or just bizarre?
