This year’s CES unveiled a ton of new gadgets, but most of them aren’t that interesting. Here are the ones that we liked the best — just the most interesting gadgets and gear that we looked at.

Wow. That's some cool stuff.
That laptop is interesting; rather than stuff a desktop-class GPU in there, they've SLI'd a pair of mobile GPU's. That should improve the FPS in most games, but still not enough for my taste. I'm wondering: does anyone actually have a desktop class GPU in a laptop that costs less than 2 grand?
And those smartwatches.... yes, please! I've been wanting something like that for a long time.
The router... Ugh, that faceted look is ugly. Why re-design the case, when the classic, stackable Linksys look was so awesome? Just bring back the old Linksys cases exactly as they were. Having said that... I might get that router just for its new features.
The Steam Box: I'm still interested in the computer, but the controller still has me WTFing... it's not so much the touch pad controls (I think that's a good idea, actually. Analog sticks are imprecise and glitchy), but the re-positioning of the buttons. That just seems like a recipe for trouble. Most games are designed around using the left stick to move while using the right thumb to activate abilities with the buttons. This design changes that paradigm, as you can't easily reach X and Y with your right thumb.
Still... my XBox 360 controllers would work just fine on that thing.

I ordered a Pebble Steel for myself. Really excited to try it out. We are gonna look at the other watches in the next few months, and we will be posting reviews of each of them.
I am not a big gamer, but I feel like the Steam Box is going to be a big deal. Just imagine if you could get the PlayStation Now app on that thing.

Technology is improving day by day. Nowadays I like the gadgets that are wearable. And talking about the above all gadgets, all of these are awesome.

I'm sort of a Luddite when it comes to the trend of wearable tech... but I kinda want a Pebble Steel. Damn things just look good.

When I get this one, I'll post a full review with lots of pictures, so you can decide whether it is worth it then
