Believe me, picking products that epitomize emerging technologies at CES ain’t easy. Come to think of it, even getting a cab isn’t easy at CES. But we Last Gadget Standing judges have spent the last few weeks sorting through a fabulous selection of products. I figure our judges have each easily seen at least a couple of hundred new products this year year alone. And when they get a little jaded or overstimulated we turn to you for crowdsourced intelligence.
We’ve choose eighteen products we think you should keep your eye on. (We also have more products–including ones from Fujitsu, Intel, Nvidia, and other companies–that we can’t even talk about until January 5th, when the press day at CES begins.)
You’ll see a special badge next to the posts on our top choices to date. Hearty congratulations to the first batch of finalists:
Our judges will be choosing ten finalists, and the audience at our Last Gadget Standing event at CES will determine the ultimate winner. In the meantime, let us know what you like–or don’t like–about these contenders. (In the coming days, we’ll also give you some head-to-heads to vote on.) Thanks for your input, and follow us on Twitter at @lastgadget2011 for more news.
