Mostly a ho-hum year for robots at CES. Lots of bipedal humanoids, $600-800 for tabletops and $20K+ for the same over promising service droids we've seen for 20 years. I did like this DOBOT Magician from China, a small solid arm which sells for $1000 which includes multiple end effectors for 3D printing, laser engraving and obviously a gripper too. Huge work envelope. http://dobot.cc/dobot-magician/product-overview.html
"When you make a thing, a thing that is new, it is so complicated making it that it is bound to be ugly. But those that make it after you, they don’t have to worry about making it. And they can make it pretty, and so everybody can like it when others make it after you."
