The Consumer Electronics Show — or CES2020 — comes to a close today in Las Vegas. About 200,000 people spent the past four days checking out the coolest gadgets from companies showing off the consumer technology and products that they’re most excited about.
And while the robots didn’t appear to outnumber humans at the event, we spotted lots of “looming robots” across our Twitter feed.
Check out some of our favorites:

Apparently, this robot puppy named Jennie from Tombot stole the show with her snoring. She’s actually a robot service animal, too.

And we’d be remiss without mentioning Charmin’s bear-faced toilet paper delivery robot…though we’re not exactly sure what to say.
