Top 5 Gizmos that Stunned the World at CES 2016

Bye, Bye 2015. Welcome CES 2016!

The biggest Tech event of the world, the Consumer Electronic Show (CES), finally came to a close a few days back. Although CES is the most awaited tech event around, frankly speaking this year’s event brought nothing exceptionally-new to the table.

The event brought in thousands and thousands of gadgets from startups to established tech giants. However, majority of the gadget, if not all, seemed like just another upgrade of their cousin products (like drones) that are already hovering in the market.

Regardless, for tech savvy consumers around the globe and not to mention the new startups that just need a little kick of inspiration to invent and present their own creation at the next event, CES 2016 unveiled many products that are worth discussing.

So, allow us to present the 7 best CES 2016 gadgets that although are not any sort of breakthroughs yet they still are incredibly-astounding.
