Gadgets of the future at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week. For example, this might be how your boss looks in the coming years. It's called a "Double" and it allows users to have a physical presence in the office without actually being there. (SOUNDBITE) (English) DAVID CANN, CO-FOUNDER OF DOUBLEROBOTICS, VIA "DOUBLE" DEVICE, SAYING: "The idea is to be able to work at home and have a better experience. It is really the next generation of telecommuting." There are 3200 exhibitors from all over the world at this year's show. From silicone toothbrushes- (SOUNDBITE) (English) JENNIFER HOMAS, OF FOREO, ON SILICONE ELECTRIC TOOTHBRUSH, SAYING: "The toothbrushes are completely made out of hygienic silicone, which is nonporous. So, it eliminates bacteria and is super gentle. It's the world's first electronic silicone toothbrush." To musical instruments made from a 3-D printer- the wave of the future starts here. Maybe robotics are more your style... how about a fleet of air drones to keep an eye on things you can't. Butt it doesn't end there... literally. The Butt Shaper can help shake off unwanted pounds from your backside. This year's show runs from January 7th to 10th.
