writes "Despite the absence of some of the biggest news makers in the tech industry like Microsoft, Google and Apple, CES still offered plenty to get excited about. One thing in particular that should excite both tech lovers and Android fans alike is the use of Android in home appliances. Looking back at the show, it's clear that the tone was set early on when a company demoed an Android powered rice cooker. It only got better when a team robotics professionals hacked together an Android controlled blender. But easily the flashiest Android appliance at CES was definitely Dacor's Android-powered oven, which automatically programs itself according to recipes selected from a tablet."
