Five Things in Five Minutes
Friday 11 January, 2019

This week we explore the biggest tech trends to come out of the annual Consumer Electronics Show, from AI-enabled translators to robot delivery dogs. We take a look at all this and more in this week's Five Things in Five Minutes.

1. Lost in translation? Problem solved
Timekettle has launched earbuds which break down language barriers for users. The wearable AI translator works by analysing live conversations and feeding in translated dialogue in over 20 languages.

2. Redefining off-road
Hyundai has revealed it's futuristic car concept. The Transformer-like vehicle can drive, walk or even climb over tough terrain, or be used in natural disaster situations. 

3. Very good boys
Continental has explored new autonomous delivery methods with a pack of pooches. The robotic 'dogs' arrive in a self-driving vehicle, before leaping out and delivering parcels to your doorstep. 

4. Wildlife watch
AI cameras are being used in African reserves to help stop wildlife poachers. Embedded with sensors, the cameras recognise suspicious activity and alert rangers of possible threats. 

5. pHabulous skin
L'Oreál has created a skin patch test that measures pH levels. The My Skin Track uses microfluidic technology to collect data, which links to an app recommending products to treat skin conditions.
