Checking out Mars, a robot of the future.

A SMART fridge that takes pictures of your food, a robot that could be your personal butler, and a new 360-degree action video camera from Nikon.

They were just some of the devices unveiled at the Consumer Electronic Shows in Las Vegas last month..

CES is attended by more than 170,000 gadget lovers each year

Samsung unveiled new TVs featuring Quantum dot display and the world's first bezel-less curved design.

Its TVs include "internet of things" capability, meaning they can be used as the controller for an entire smart home.

The TV's new Smart Hub is designed to provide users with simple access to their favourite content all in one place.

More than 500 streaming and downloadable games will be available on its smart TVs with recent PlayStation additions including Assassin's Creed III, Batman: Arkham Origins, The LEGO Movie and many more.

One of the coolest looking devices unveiled by Nikon, was KeyMission 360, a wearable action camera capable of recording 360 video in 4K UHD.

With an image sensor and lens combination on opposite sides of the camera, captured images are combined in-camera to create a high definition 360° image output.

It is expected to be available in April.

How about your own personal robot?

Segway and Intel have teamed to create a hoverboard robot butler.

The sci-fi device, which is a self-balancing personal transporter with a built-in interactive robot, was unveiled at Intel's keynote speech.

It's not immediately clear what exactly the robot does - demonstrations showed it could use its built-in cameras to follow someone, and a pair of clip-on arms made it look a bit more robot-like, but that's it.

How about a super smart fridge?

One of the most talked about products at CES2016 was Samsung's new super smart fridge.

Its centrepiece is a 21.5" Full HD LCD touchscreen, a digital command centre for the connected home.

The Family Hub's Key capabilities include:

Improved Food Management.

Three built-in cameras take a photo of the inside of the refrigerator every time the door is closed so consumers can always see what they have wherever they go, via their smartphone.
