While the world’s largest technology show took over Las Vegas this week and set the agenda for the year’s biggest tech trends, it also debuted some truly unexpected innovations — some wacky but useful, and others just plain strange.
This year’s big trend to make home appliances smart, for example, took a strange turn with two cupboard-sized devices designed to fold your washing ... and perhaps even remove some wrinkles.

Start-up firm FoldiMate showed off a non-working prototype of its machine that will cost $US980 when it ships early next year.
Users feed garments, like shirts or towels, into the front of the machine, and collect them in folded form in a drawer at the bottom of the machine.
“I started this journey with a humble goal to help out with laundry folding in my home,” founder Gal Rozov said.
