CES 2019: Friendly robots, oddball cars and a lot of AI

(CNN) – Robots that keep you company, faster internet on phones, voice controlled everything, and oddball vehicles to replace regular cars. They’re just some of the technologies coming to CES 2019, the massive consumer electronics show that takes over Las Vegas for a week every January.

The show floor doesn’t technically open until Tuesday, but the announcements start trickling out Sunday evening from different events and press conferences. Expect a mix of products from major technology companies and small startups ranging from the practical, like televisions, to the more unusual, like self-driving vegetable stores.
