As Wednesday draws to a close, so does a grand social experiment: the first-ever online-only CES. In the end, the experience was invariably different. We particularly missed being able to wander The Sands and have learn about smaller, up-and-coming startups. And if seeing is believing, the oddest entries at the show remained locked behind our computer screen, with no chance of getting hands-on time. And yet, we were kept busy this week. Most of the usual tech giants had news to share, and many of those were able to show us their wares in person, ahead of the three-day gadget extravaganza.
Out of the tens of thousands of new products, applications and services introduced at CES, here are the ones who caught our eyes. Without further delay, here are the products we think you should know about, Ubergizmo's Best of CES 2017 (in no particular order): Samsung is betting its TV lineup on LCD Technology with the most advanced Quantum-Dot technology demonstrated at CES 2017. Called QLED, this display technology uses a new generation of Quantum Dots, which are tiny nanotech elements that are embedded in displays. Quantum Dots can help control the light spectrum and make LCD color filters exponentially better. Good enough to compete with OLED in quality at a more affordable price.
Our editors have been on the ground for the better part of this week scouring every nook and cranny in Las Vegas to bring you the latest and greatest from CES 2018. And now we're ready to announce our finalists for the official Best of CES awards. Below you'll find our selections for all 16 categories, which range from best wearables to the most innovative tech we've seen at the show. We'll announce our category winners tomorrow, which is also when we'll reveal our Best of the Best award recipient, the most coveted prize of all. That special award is selected from our pool of category winners.
After 51 years, CES in Las Vegas still manages to pack some surprises. No, I'm not talking about the rain that caused crazy floods or the two-hour blackout in Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center. I'm talking about 65-inch rollable OLED displays, robotic dogs, and $4,000 treadmills that deliver live workout classes on HD screens.
There truly is something for everyone, from new and improved products and services announced by major corporations to truly innovative ideas made real by entrepreneurial spirits. Still, it's difficult to figure out what's worth one's time and what products and services are simply a flash in the pan, never to be seen again. So we did the hard work for you to find the most intriguing and exciting gadgets of CES, from accessories you can buy right now to concept devices charting the future of the industry. Without further ado, here is TIME's Best of CES 2020. Samsung's Ballie is an interesting combination between smart home device and robotic companion.
