BrainCo’s prosthetic hand
Another technological innovation worth writing about is BrainCo’s AI-powered prosthetic hand. The technology works with an amputee’s brain waves and muscle signals so that they can move the way they like! In addition, it also permits amputees to have a wider range of motion customised to their own bodies.
This prosthetic arm is controlled by brainwaves. My mind is simply blown by @BrainCo_Tech #CES2020 pic.twitter.com/oB1PqF3FvT

TCL Foldable phone
This piqued our interest and for good reason! TLC’s foldable phone has a great bending screen and offers great specs, but the brand’s goal is to bring down the price, so that the masses can enjoy this gadget. The phone comes with three rear cameras, great display and lightning 5G!

We have all heard of diaper brand, Pampers, but this time around, they have created something we had never even thought of! The brand has worked with engineers and pediatricians to create a baby monitoring system that combines a camera and a sensor that can attach to a baby’s diaper. This will help you track your baby’s sleeping cycle and his/her quality of sleep and when they go to the bathroom.
From CES 2020: Lumi by Pampers is a smart sensor that attaches to your infant's diaper and sends you a notification when they go to the bathroom. https://t.co/VQ8tb36S6N

The OnePlus Concept One
For some, the idea of a camera lens at the back feels cumbersome. Fret not, the OnePlus Concept One uses special glass that can tint the lens of the rear camera. So when you are not using it to click pictures, the glass stays black! When you click images, the glass becomes transparent.
