The future of robots starts now. Robotelf will exhibit the first family-oriented, smart robot, capable of providing children and the elderly easy access to technology. Named Robelf, the robot recognizes the household members and moves freely between rooms. Likewise, it recognizes intruders and notifies the owner. When no one is home, Robelf patrols the home and can be controlled remotely from anywhere. It can also serve as a tutor and a recipe aide in the kitchen.
MSI Sets Benchmarks for Gaming Laptops

It comes equipped with the newest chips from Nvidia and Intel, and is has the fastest display ever (120 Hz, 3ms, 4K-Ultra-HD). It allows you to control the ultimate gaming machine with yet another novel addition: the patented, mechanical RGB keyboard which was developed together with SteelSeries for a distinct, tactile response.
Security for Every German’s Best Friend
A dream comes true for dog and cat owners specialist Acer presents its market-ready pet collar which allows you to locate your four-legged friend in real-time on your smartphone. Moreover, it measures your pet’s temperature, and monitors its activity, providing animal-lovers with a continuous update on their pet’s health status.
