CES®, on its 50th anniversary, has presented some of the cutting-edge technology, extravagant concepts, and more than ever user-friendly products, but only a small portion of them will matter in the years to come.
We saw a lot of everyday home tech that is transformed into visual assistants, intelligent robots, concept cars, innovative technology concepts and new releases that you can buy now or soon, and here we will present you our 5 favorite products.
Project Valerie (concept)
Razer has blown our minds when they introduce us with their first triple screen laptop, which is bigger and bolder 17.3-inch screen laptop, and other two screens are hidden inside the lid. The laptop has “three eye-popping 4K displays”, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card, and all the three displays uses Nvidia G-sync technology.
Screens on the side can be deployed and locked in place with highly durable aluminum hinges. Because of this design, this laptop weighs around 12 pounds, according to Razer, and its 1.5 inches thick, but with 3 screens built in, it’s still a great gaming laptop and concept.
Update: Unfortunately, two Razer Project Valerie laptop prototypes were stolen from the Razer booth at CES. The company has responded to Polygon with the full statement.
This is another innovative but massive product because it is the first gaming laptop with the 21-inch curved screen. We said massive because this laptop weighs 19.4 pounds. Acer Predator 21 X is expected to hit stores in February, and it costs $8,999.
Considering that price, this laptop is equipped with great specs and here they are:
The laptop has a 21-inch screen with 21:9 aspect ratio and 2,560×1,080-pixel resolution with 120Hz refresh rate and 2000R curved screen.
It’ equipped with Nvidia G-Sync, Tobii Eye Tracking, 2 Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 GPUs, 7th-gen Intel Core i7-7820HK CPU.
The typing experience is better with a Mechanical keyboard which uses Cherry MX switches and has an RGB LED under every key.
It can store up to 5 storage drives at a time. Besides that it has 5 system fans, 9 heat pipes for cooling, HDMI port and 2 DisplayPorts, 2 power supplies, 4 speakers and 2 subwoofers and lastly the SD card reader.
The future of TV lies in this piece of technology. LG presented us their Best of Innovation Awards Honoree at CES® 2017.
This tv is so thin that the screen attaches directly to the wall, just like a poster. It’s slightly flexible panel, so the process of installing it on the wall is easier.
LG OLED pixels create their own light and can switch off to achieve truly perfect black levels with zero light bleed.
Also, this is the first TV of its kind that brings both Dolby Vision™ and Dolby Atmos® together.
The display weight is 27.1 pounds for 77-inch TV and 17 pounds for 65 inch TV.
Because of its thin design, this tv has included a sound bar with Dolby Atmos®, which houses HDMI and other inputs, and its connected to TV with ribbon thin cable.
This product will be available soon on the market, and you can visit their website for full specifications.

This CES presented some various drones, and we found a drone that can replace selfie sticks. This is a small and compact drone with retractable propellers, that can fit in your pocket.
Dobby allows tracking moving people or objects, with 3-axis electronic image stabilization system, facial recognition, and gesture control.
The drone can shoot 4K video with 16 GB of storage and 13 MP camera.
Tracking mode uses Qualcomm Snapdragon Flight platform and with the facial recognition, you can lock a target so he can follow it around. The flight time of this product is 9 minutes, and charging 45 minutes.
Besides gesture control, it also needs steering from the app. Zerotech Dobby is available today for $399, which is significantly cheaper than some of the competitors.
This is some of our favorite products that were presented at CES®, and there are much more, from car concepts that can inspire some of the future automobile creators to step out of the comfort zone and create unique pieces, to simple home devices that can improve the quality of life.
