I just came home from CES 2022 and I can certainly say that it was not like any previous CES events. Covid scares, companies pulling out, canceled last day…it was definitely a roller coaster for CTA who organizes CES. On the flip side, I was very grateful that the in-person event went on (because the virtual CES 2021 was terrible) and I was able to witness some of the coolest gadgets.

In this article, I am listing some of the coolest and most unique gadgets I’ve come across at CES, Pepcom and Showstoppers event at Last Vegas.
