It used to be that electronics and devices performed a single job. But at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES), manufacturers unveiled a host of products that expand our notions of what household gadgets can do. Here are a few highlights from CES 2017 that reflect just how much the times are changing.

Simplehuman voice-activated trash cans will be available in two capacities starting in March, one with a single bin and the other with an added bin for recycling. The lid opens and closes with voice commands. In May, simplehuman will be releasing cans that include Wi-Fi, additional language support, and the ability to track and order garbage bags when you run low.

HiMirror is a personal bathroom mirror that assesses facial skin condition by analyzing wrinkles, fine lines, complexion, dark circles, dark spots, red spots and pores. It can then suggest routines for skin care. The HiMirror Plus adds LED lights, which simulate five different lighting scenarios for the most appropriate makeup application.

LG Smart InstaView fridge is Wi-Fi connected with a 29-inch smart screen that includes its own operating system. It allows you to surf the web, display recipes, create “sticky notes” for the family, track food expiration dates, and stream music while you make the perfect meal. The camera feature lets you look inside the fridge without opening it, even from a remote location via smartphone. Voice commands range from adjusting power and temperature settings to ordering groceries via the integration with Amazon’s personal assistant Alexa.

Kolibree Ara toothbrush monitors your tooth brushing performance. Your personal brushing data is synchronized with a smartphone app that provides a weekly email scorecard that includes tips for areas you may be missing, so you can keep your pearly whites gleaming!

Moen’s U shower allows remote warmup to the perfect temperature setting for each member of your household, directly from the smartphone app. Other features include an alert to let you know when your shower is ready as well as a pause feature in case you’re delayed, so no water is wasted.

Look for these gadgets to hit stores throughout 2017, or visit manufacturer websites for more information!
