  • There are 344 robotics exhibitors at this year's International Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
  • Some robots on display seem tailor-made to wow passerby, but likely wouldn't fit in the home or budget of the average consumer.
  • We saw robot sharks, a robot that plays ping-pong, and a robot that bakes bread.

LAS VEGAS - Robots are everywhere at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES), as 344 robotics exhibitors have displays at the event, according to CES' website.

Some of the robots at this year's CES are modest and wouldn't seem out of place at a Best Buy, others seem tailor-made to wow passerby but likely wouldn't fit in the home or budget of the average consumer. Among them are robot sharks, a robot that plays ping-pong, and a robot that bakes bread.

These are the weirdest robots we saw at CES.
