The 2016 honorees include everything from a robotic bartender to a 3-D-printed hand. Those products have been on display for attendees to view at a CES showcase.
A panel of industrial designers, engineers and members of the trade press judge the products. There are two levels of winners, the exclusive “Best of Innovation” and “Honorees.”
Best Buy sells five of the “Best of Innovation” gadgets. Here they are:
