    A World's First You Probably Didn't Even Know Existed.

    Well, actually, it will be here in 2018, so this is an early look. ShadeCraft is a robotics and technology startup based in Los Angeles, California. At the show, one of the founders of the company explained that their mission is to improve people’s lives outdoors. And their flagship product, SUNFLOWER, is the billed as the world’s first robotic shading system that tracks thesun. But that's not all! It has a full set of high tech features that include GPS, Bluetooth and WIFI connectivity, a high definition camera, voice activation and controls, speakers to stream audio, controlled lighting and the ability to charge external devices! And – it's all powered through solar energy. Now this was a preview look and the more formal introduction will take place at CES 2018. There they'll announce the price and limited available of the first units coming off the production line. You can sign on for updates at the company website.
