Every year, my new year starts with a bang, thanks to the biggest tech convention on the planet, the Consumer Electronics Show. It takes place once a year in Las Vegas, USA (typically from January 7 to 10). I think it is the only event where you can see the unseen and expect the unexpected. As always, lots and lots of gadgets, some of them are cool, some are still prototypes, some are just launched and yet to hit the retail market.
CES is so big that you can never visit every booth or see every product. I barely saw 60% of the products this time. But…you know what, that 60% consisted of at least a thousand booths, several thousands of gadgets. There were a ton of services/software companies too but I would happily skip them just because I am more into the end products.

My Best Gadget Picks from CES 2020

  • 1. Deepmag - Wireless Powered Levitating Light

    This gadget is a levitating light by Deepmag, the company that specializes in magnetic levitation and electromagnetic direct-drive technologies. Deepmag light has two important features. It receives power wirelessly and levitates magnetically upside down. Read it again, it is upside down. It is the coolest table lamp you can ever get. The lamp has an ergonomic wooden body that looks stunning on any table. The wireless power can be harnessed up to 10 watts which is not bad at all. It has a touch control and fall-proof design. Fall proof design means, if you unplug the lamp from a power source, the bulb, instead of falling down, gets attached to the lamp itself. This is just crazy. The lamp is not available in the market yet. As I spoke to one of their team, they said that the levitati.. [Read More]

    Rolling Square, a popular swiss based manufacturers has a huge history in designing and developing some of the coolest smartphone accessories. Some of their previous products include inCharge, inCharge Universal and Hyphen. Today, I am reviewing their latest product called inCharge 6 cable. This is a 6 in 1 connecting cable that lets you connect between different types of USB devices. To be exact, inCharge 6 supports USB, Type C, Lightning, and Micro USB connections. There are 6 combinations that you can mix and match. We shall see them in the next section. Just after launching inCharge 6, the company launched its new product called TAU.

  • 3. Evapolar evaCHILL Portable Air Conditioner

    Evapolar evaChill is one of the best and the worthiest gadget you can ever get under $100. This portable air conditioner is probably the only portable AC that looks good, is feature-packed and extremely affordable. Having a personal AC like this has a ton of advantages, one of them is portability. This gadget can humidify, clean, and cool the air around you. It is ultra-portable and can fit in your backpack or luggage. Evachill looks super clean and aesthetic on any table. The LED lights at the back make it look sick. It utilizes their proprietary filtering and cooling mechanism which can efficiently provide the air conditioning for upto 9 hours on a single water refill.

  • 4. PowerEgg X Waterproof Drone + Handheld Camera

    Powervision, one of the popular drone manufacturers showcased their newly released multipurpose gadget/drone/camera (whatever it is) called PowerEgg X during the CES 2020 event. It was love at first sight, look how cool and compact it looks. PowerEgg X is not only a drone but also a handheld camera. So when you are in a drone restricted area, just take off the wings and put on the strap, as easy as it sounds. Another go-to feature is that the drone is waterproof.       Don't forget to checkout PowerRay, a cool underwater 4k drone You might be knowing, there are not a lot of drones that are waterproof, not even water-resistant. I personally have a Mavic Pro and every time I fly it during monsoon, my nerves will be shaking. Power egg X has a maximum range of 3.5 .. [Read More]

  • 5. Pokit PRO - All in one Multimeter, Oscilloscope and Logger

    I came across this amazing gadget during CES 2020 and it is by far one of my favorite pieces of tech in 2020. Pokit Pro is a 3 in 1 device that can act as a multimeter, oscilloscope and data logger. The multimeter supports up to 600V and 10A. The oscilloscope can measure frequencies, display waveforms on your phone and works in time and frequency domain. The data logger can log the data continuously for six months. The logger is really handy if you are testing something in the long run. You can visualize all the reading via their smartphone app. Since it connects wirelessly, you can put the device in action somewhere and view the reading at a distance. It has a rechargeable battery that lasts upto 6 months which is ridiculously high. I wish I had this gadget when I was pursuing my El.. [Read More]

  • 6. Clicbot Educational Robot Toy

    As I was wandering around the convention center at Las Vegas, a bunch of tiny robots was singing and dancing with each other without the intervention of any human. I went ahead to check them out and they are none other than Clicbot robots, tiny little but smart robot toys made specifically for educational or STEM purpose. Look at the display in its head, so futuristic. Click bot is a modular robot that can be turned into almost anything, be it a car or a pole. You can attach legs, hands,and whatnot. Clicbot robot is programmable and it supports Python coding language. It comes with a rechargeable battery that lasts upto 2 hours of use. It can be controlled via a mobile app. Clicbot is a family robot and it suits teenage kids very well. Don't forget to watch the video below to get.. [Read More]

  • 7. Insta360 ONE R Action Camera

    One R action cam by Insta360 is not only beautiful but also packed with a ton of cool features. One of them is modularity. The camera body, the lens and the batteries can be separated and upgraded. How cool is that! One R comes with different modules like battery module, 360 camera module, 4K 1" sensor module etc. This action camera is one of its kind. Insta360 One R shoots in 4K wide-angle, supports up to 256gb micro sd card for storage and is waterproof up to 16ft without any casing. The camera can be attached to a drone as well. Talking about drones, this camera has a unique feature where you can mount 2 separate One R cameras on your drone, say Mavic 2 pro and it will create a 360 degree view by stitching the outputs from the two cameras. One of the biggest cons of .. [Read More]

  • 8. V-Coptr Falcon Bi-Copter Drone

    Zero zero robotics showcased their latest drone named V Coptr Falcon at CES 2020 and it is definitely one of the coolest drones I have ever seen. V Copter Falcon has a 4K camera with gimbal stabilization, 7 km remote control range and a whopping 50 minutes battery life. Read it again, 50 minutes of flight time. This is something no other drones have, not even the best in the market. This bicopter could last for such a long time just because it uses only 2 motors whereas a typical drone uses 4 motors, thereby increasing the power consumption.  Falcon bicopter does all maneuvers with just 2 motors. It can go sideways, rotate and what not. The bicopter has a front-facing collision avoidance mechanism. I wish it had a 360-degree collision avoidance system. I have personally seen and ..

  • 9. Magic Table Touch Display by PQ Labs

    This is by far the best and the most futuristic gadget I found at CES 2020. The best thing is, the Magic Table is not just a concept, it is indeed available to buy. Magic display has a touch screen, powered by AI and sensors integrated inside it. Currently, there are two options in terms of display size, 55" and 76". The magic table can connect to your smartphone or PC. It has 4K resolution. One of the coolest things is its machine learning part. You can train the system with some objects, say a car and when you place the car on the table, the sensors automatically pick up the features and the exact position of the object and perform some cool actions like the ones you see from the video below. The display can be embedded on a wall too... [Read More]

  • 10. Celestron StarSense Explorer DX Telescope

    One of the popular telescope manufacturers, Celestron, showcased a couple of their new products during the CES 2020. Starsense Explorer LT and Explorer DX are the ones I personally had hands-on experience with. The Explorer DX and LT feature a 130mm and 80mm reflectors respectively. Both the telescopes make use of your smartphone and via their app, you can see a list of stars or galaxies that are currently visible in the sky. With StarSense Explorer DX, you can see different stars, clusters of stars, galaxies and even nebulae that are many many light-years away. I think the magic of this telescope stays in its mobile application that is used as an extensive guide for locating objects accurately. Explorer DX can see Andromeda Galaxy quite clearly and you might be knowing, Andromeda, .. [Read More]

  • 11. Sunnybag Iconic Solar Backpack

    Iconic Sunnybag is a backpack with a solar panel at its surface. The ergonomic design makes it one of the best-looking bags out there. Not just the look, the quality of the backpack is quite amazing. Sunnybag has a 7W solar panel that can charge your smartphone, headphones, smartwatches, drones, and whatnot. Depending on the amount of solar radiation it receives, the panel provides the power output. The charging time is largely dependent on solar illumination, which makes sense. The best practice is to recharge your devices through a power bank. There is a water bottle pocket and a smartphone pocket on the sides. The interior of the backpack is not that great, at least for me. It is made of a plastic-type material that looks like a raincoat. The laptop padding is okayish and ther.. [Read More]

  • 12. Kangaroo Smart Privacy Camera

    Kangaroo showcased their newest product called privacy camera during CES 2020. The privacy camera is smart, comes with their patented privacy shield technology and it can be streamed via wifi. The privacy shield is something that turns the camera screen from opaque to transparent at the click of a button. The best part, it does not even take a second to do that. Kangaroo privacy camera is expected to reach the market by February 2020 and it might be priced at around $60 or so. Thinking about its features to price ratio, this camera is a serious competitor to some of the most rated surveillance cameras on the market right now. Watch the video below for a clear understanding of this gadget. You may sign up to their waitlist to get notified when the product goes live on Indiegogo... [Read More]

  • 13. BenjiLock Fingerprint Bike Lock

    Benjilock, one of the best fingerprint lock manufacturers just released its new product for bikers. It is a fingerprint lock made for bikes, be it an e-Bike or a regular one. I always wanted to have something like this because when I take my bike to Gym, it is kinda inconvenient to find my keys, unlock the U lock, fix it in place and lock it. What if you could lock or unlock your bike's U lock in a second? This gadget does exactly that. As I spoke to one of their team at CES 2020, the fingerprint lock is not yet available in the market but it could be released in around September of 2020. They did have a working prototype that I personally tested. The battery life on the U lock is around 6 to 8 months which is amazing. It also has an option to use regular keys to unlock just incase i.. [Read More]

  • 14. Manta5 Hydrofoiler XE lets you Bicycle on Water

    There was a time when road bikes were popular but now it is time for waterbikes to make some noise. What if you could ride a bicycle on water? Yes, on water. Walking on water is not possible but at least we can bicycle on water, thanks to Hydrofiler XE by Manta5. You still don't believe me, do you? Just go down this article and watch the video yourself. I saw this humongous bike at CES 2020. Due to its size, it is not easy to carry. It uses the hydrofoil technique to stay afloat and requires you to continuously pedal it. As I spoke to one of their team, Hydrofoiler XE  has a battery life of 1 hour. As soon as the battery reaches a threshold, it pops up a warning on the display. If the battery dies, it does sink down if there is a person on it. If you have a life jacket and can escape,.. [Read More]

  • 15. mui - A wooden Plank with a Hidden Display

    MUI is a cool wooden plank with a twist, it has a display embedded inside it. It is 100% made out of wood and the best thing is it has a touch display that can show notifications, set timer and play music. One thing I forgot to mention is that it has an inbuilt speaker too, how cool is that? It has a built-in google assistant that is voice search enabled. MUI also integrates with several smart bulbs such as Hue and lets you control the brightness by sliding across the horizontal axis. It can show weather, your schedule and more. The panel is not thick at all, it is just as the size of a typical wooden plank (you can see it from the image above). It can be fitted on any wall or hard surface. Costing around $600, this gadget is definitely not cheap but is a good fit if you are .. [Read More]

  • 16. Razer Kishi Gaming Controller for Smartphone

    Razer showcased a range of new products during CES2020. One of them that caught my eyes is their new gaming controller for smartphones that looks so beautiful, is lightweight and works with any smartphone, be in Android or iPhone. Kishi controller has a collapsible design that makes it easy to carry around. It does not involve any batteries and uses juice from your smartphone itself. That's not all, Kishi has a USB C port that can charge your smartphone while you are playing games. The functionality of the Kishi controller is very similar to other smartphone controllers, it has 11 buttons and 2 directional pads. Believe me, playing games with this controller is so addictive, you have been warned! Razer Kishi controller is available on Amazon... [Read More]

  • 17. HyperSonic X Power Bank with Earbuds

    I had hands-on experience with Hypercharge X power bank while I was at CES last week and it is definitely one of the coolest battery banks out there in the market. Hypercharge X has an 8000 mAh battery capacity that can charge your smartphone at least twice. It also has a QI wireless charger on one of its surfaces that supports 15W wireless charging this is really useful if you have a phone that supports wireless charging. It has a USB C port for PD charging, a magnetic cable attachment plug and a display that shows you the remaining battery percentage. One of the coolest things that set this battery bank apart from others is the earbuds. The earbuds are directly attached to the power bank itself. The earbuds directly use the juice from the power bank to charge its batteries... [Read More]
