CES 2018: Were Robots More Than A Gimmick At The Tech Show?

If you've ever wanted a robot to do the vacuuming, then the CES tech show has something for you.

The Aeolus robot is designed to perform a range of household tasks - including mopping floors, rearranging furniture and putting away dishes.

However, like many of the bots showcased in Las Vegas this year, the pressure sometimes got to it.

"Aeolus has had enough," tweeted Signe Brewster, a writer at tech site Wirecutter, after observing the bot stall inexplicably during a demo.

The moment is reminiscent of an even more high profile hiccup that hit LG's smart home helper Cloi during the firm's press conference earlier in the week.
