Mekamon robots are designed for battle – but can do it without physically tearing each other apart. Via smartphone, players can bring them into an augmented world where they fire missiles at drones and also get stunned by electromagnetic pulses.

Mobile offers more than just fun and games.

The Changhong H2 is the first smartphone to be equipped with a molecular sensor made by the company SCiO. The phone can detect whether medicine is fake. It can even measure the sweetness of this apple.

“The nice thing about this is that you can detect specific nutritional information of the food you eat. It’s not just any database of any apples, it would be the apple you actually put in your mouth,” SCiO Product Marketer Hagai Heshes said.

Kerastase makes a hairbrush that has Wifi, Bluetooth and even a microphone inside. To learn about the health of your hair, just run the brush through it.

“We have a microphone that’s going to listen to the sound of your hair. The sound of your hair is what’s going to determine the damage, the dryness, the breakability,” Kerastase General Manager Vincent Nida said.

“We have an accelerometer that’s gonna calculate the number of strokes, we have a gyrometer that’s gonna check if you brush at the right angle. We have sensors that measure the force of traction.”

Other items getting smarter are suitcases, like the Modobag, which has two USB charging ports and a carbon-free lithium battery that’s got some real juice.

The Modobag is the first piece of carry-on luggage that can actually carry you. I can hit 8 kilometers per hour indoors and 13 kilometers per hour outside. Users can travel about 18 kilometers on a single charge.

“You go by people and they are like did I just see someone riding their suitcase right by me? So this certainly has the fun element. It’s got the functionality element as well. [edit] I would like to think you are not taking your Modobag because you are lazy. It’s more because you want to get to your destination in a new and different way. In fact, we say that a Modobag will get you to your destination three times faster than walking,” Modobag Marketing Entrepreneur Tim Ryan said.

And finally, Faraday Future’s new 1050 horsepower electric car, the FF91 is perfect for those who love speed.
