Different areas would also be added to the event to accommodate emerging technologies, he said, including augmented reality apps and unusual vehicles. "Buddy" - made by French startup Blue Frog Robotics - is a Google Assistant voice-controlled robot that can roam around a family home.

The Las Vegas monorail is already wrapped in "Hey Google" messaging and they have taken a dominant position with a big outdoor CES booth.
