From Nvidia’s gaming console prototype to Huawei’s king of phablets phone, there are many other gadgets that didn’t get as much attention as they should, perhaps. Here’s a list with what I think are the coolest gadgets from the year’s biggest technology event. If you have heard of other awesome gadgets, do let us know!

Coolest Gadgets at CES 2013

We won’t talk about TVs here, even if Samsung, Sony or LG have presented the some awesome devices: 4K UHD, OLED television sets. We also won’t feature here smartphones launched at CES 2013, because this is a list with not that kind of gadgets. Read on to discover what we’re talking about here! There’s no particular order, since it’s hard to say which is No.1 and which is not. This list would’ve been much, much bigger, but since smartphones and tablets are becoming the center of our tech worlds, subsequently, many gadgets are tailored for them. So, check out our CES 2013 smartphone and tablet accessories post for that. For the “lazy” ones, you can check out the gallery with pics of these awesome gadgets.

Scosche boomBOTTLE Bike speaker

If you’re crazy for bike rides, then you’re probably going to like this awesome gadget. As far as it concerns, whenever I go for a bike ride in the park, an mp3 player is a must. But what if you could have a big speaker on your bike? Obviously, the problem would be with the people around you – you might annoy them with your noise. But if you’re going for a ride in the forrest, it should be fine. It has the design of a watter bottle and its traditional positioning, too. The speaker is shock and waterproof. It will connect via Bluetooth to your Android or iOS device.

Tobii Rex

Tobii has been working on this even in 2011. If at CES 2012, there was only a demo from Tobii, at CES 2013, there is already a working device. Rex is the computer accessory that allows you to control your Windows 8 computer with only your eyes. It adds an eye-tracking interface via the USB port to any Windows 8 computer. This makes eye-controlled smartphones and tablets closer than ever! We don’t know yet the final price, but the developer edition is at $995. You’re probably not quite sure who’ll pay this money, but think about those unfortunate situations when people can’t use their arms to interact with the computer. For me, this is really revolutionary technology.

Seagate Wireless Plus

Huawei Media Q

Right now, we don’t know too many details about the Huawei Media Q, besides the fact that it will be a companion device for Huawei smartphones. It will be a physical cube, some sort of a Nexus Q. It is said to have voice search functionalities and the ability to facilitate HD voice calls. At the moment, we don’t even have a picture or more details. But it’s obvious that Huawei wants to provide one extra reason to buy Ascend D2 or Mate smartphones.

Storytime Projector

This is one very, very cute pico projector that will certainly appeal to your kids. And you probably won’t be surprisde to know that it’s actually aimed at them. With a Rubik-like design, Innoio’s Storytime Projector has a serious promise of keeping your kids mesmerized by its projections on their room walls or even ceiling. For grown-ups, you might want to check out our selection with more “serious” projectors. Storytime Projector is already available in South Korea and could come to US by the end of Q1. For $200, it will offer a WVGA resolution of 854 x 480, output of 35 lumes and a 50-inch image from 3 to 4 feet.


As a technology lover, I always wanted to have a robot, but a very smart one. I hope that one day I’ll be able to buy one. At CES 2013, Ecovacs presented a very smart roaming robot that has the purpose of cleaning the air in your house. So, it will patrol on the floor of your home and when it will detect a dirty zone, it will purify it. But Famibot doesn’t do only that, it also has cameras and lets you see what’s going on at home. A chat function allows you to discuss with elders. And if this wasn’t enough, tt can also play music, allow you to control your air conditioner or lights and send alerts if there is an unexpected person in the huse. It can even tell you of a possible smoke that could cause fire. All this for $900.

Puzzlebox Orbit

Thanks to Kickstarter, the world around us is changing and this is very, very true. At CES 2013, there are a lot of projects from Kickstarter, some of them that are already hitting stores and others that are yet waiting for a full funding. Puzzlebox Orbit is a brave product that probably seemed extracted frome a Sci-Fi novel a few decades ago. It allows you to control an helicopter toy with your mind! With a bluetooth device, this awesome gadget can transform brainwave data into flight commands. So, if you concentrat pretty hard, you’ll manage to make it fly! It will cost $189
