The iLab products from the health, food, personal technology, wearables segments and more and were picked to both give attendees a glimpse into the future and inspire retailers to continue to innovate to keep pace with the technological leaders.
Among the technology on display will be Pepper, the first humanoid robot that reads human emotions and can speak in multiple languages. Visitors can also check out a state-of-the-art 3D printer and learn how it’s being used to customize products from bridal gowns to door knobs.
