Ever wished you could just shut out the times when your friends decide to watch terrible shows on the TV? Well, with Holosonics Audio Spotlight speakers, now you can - built to project sounds like a beam of light to the person sitting right in front of it.
The effect is really strange in an awesome way. Sit at any angle other than directly in front of the TV and you can enjoy the sound of silence (well, the sound of other CES stands and busy talking at the time - but you get the point).
But sit in front of it and you get the audio experience of up to 85dB volume - directed towards you with precision accuracy, so nobody else can hear it. At a time when people are speaking of "social listening experiences," this is the perfect anti-social antidote to this need to listen and watch with others.
So how does it work? Using ultrasound waves, the speakers can capably produce sound waves only millimetres in size that allows a direction to be chosen.
But wait... Humans can't hear ultrasound waves! You would be right, but as these waves travel through the air, they transform in "predictable ways" to the team. This means they use the air to create the desired sound waves for the user to listen to.
Unlike other speakers, the audio is created in thin air - rather than at the speaker itself. That's pretty cool.
A car that rises up to drive over traffic… Sounds like a dream, right? Well, it is I’m afraid. While the Hum Rider is a real car, it’s simply a marketing stunt for Verizon.

Snapchat story clones are cropping up everywhere in Facebook-owned apps and it’s not necessary. Would you ever want to post the same story across four different platforms? Or course not.
What is the future of wearables? I went to The Wearable Technology Show and found out - writing for BBC Science Focus magazine.
Forget everything you knew about smart homes and the Legend of Zelda… One particular fan has managed to create a home automation system that is controlled by playing the Ocarina.
Following the instant success of Pokémon GO in summer 2016, rumours began that developer Niantic was working on another game – simply named Harry Potter GO. This is fake news, so please stop sharing it.
A team of researchers have done something incredible yet terrifying - using sound waves to hack a smartphone, using a method that could be used to theoretically control any technology with an accelerometer.
I get it - the headline sounds terrifying. But Switzerland’s EPFL has just invented a medical masterpiece that could help to reinvent robotic healthcare. These gelatinous machines could soon be crawling around your insides and performing operations.
A study has found that violent video games have zero long-term effects on a person’s empathy, no matter how little or how much they play.
