CES 2016 has kicked off, and the first day is focussing on some weird and wacky devices like this rolling robot projector

CES is an annual technology expo in Las Vegas and the 2016 edition is just kicking off. The preview yesterday showed off a bunch of more niche products before everything goes supersized on the 6th of January.

One item which caught our eye was the Tipron. It comes from a Japanese company called Cerevo which makes smart products like clever alarm clocks, connected power strips and video streamers. It's latest looks like a cute little robot which can amble around while being controlled by a mobile app, but Tipron has secret skills - it's also a projector.

This little guy can be made to roll around after you and use its beaming eye to project anything you like, anywhere you want. You can also set it up to move to a certain pattern, so that it knows the best place to set up for watching movies in the living room for example. Here's a little video from The Verge at CES 2016.

CES 2016 runs from the 6th to the 9th of January.
