The LG Styler is a mini-closet that steams your clothes at home. When it is switched on, it fills with hot steam and the hangers vibrate and gently shake the items back and forth. This hot steam removes 99.9 percent of bacteria, removes wrinkles, and keeps clothes smelling fresh.  Price: $2,000

The EHang 184 is a human-sized drone created by the Chinese unmanned aerial vehicle company, EHang. The drone weighs 440 pounds, is 4 ½ feet tall and would be able to carry one passenger for 23 minutes at 60 mph. It also has gull-wing doors and arms that can fold up for easy storage. Passengers will not be able to have control during the flight, but they will have the option to input a destination. The company believes that this option is safer by eliminating “the most dangerous part of standard modes of transportation: human error.” There are multiple backups available for each flight and a feature where the drone would immediately land if a passenger’s life would be at risk.  Price: $200,000-$300,000
