CES 2024 is a wrap! A week of incredible technology products saw innovations showcased across various categories, including AI, Automotive, Computing, Mobile, Disability, Health, and much more.

During the HoT Tech Awards at CES 2024, we celebrated 12 incredible products that showcase innovation, impact daily life, and change how we use technology.

Here are the 20 Best products we found at CES 2024!

LG Transparent Signature OLED TV

Do you have floor-to-ceiling windows, and are you tired of a TV blocking those beautiful views? If so, LG has a stunning new TV for you, as long as the price is no object.

LG’s new Transparent Signature OLED TV is a stunning 85-inch TV with a black back panel that can be lowered. It reveals a breathtaking, fully transparent, completely see-through TV panel when lowered. It is the ultimate party-trick, and is guaranteed to wow your guests.

It features everything we expect from OLED TVs, including vibrant colors, dark blacks, and stunning contrast ratios. It’s the first time we’ve seen a commercially-ready transparent TV, and LG continues to set the standard in OLED TVs. We don’t know how much it will cost, but expect it to be one of the most expensive TVs on the market.

Samsung Transparent microLED TV

While LG has a commercially-ready transparent OLED, Samsung gave us a peek at what will come next: transparent microLED TVs.

MicroLED was a big theme amongst TV makers at CES, especially as it combines the best of OLED but fixes some of the biggest issues. One of those issues is viewability in well-lit rooms, and the Samsung Transparent microLED TV concept shows that microLED is the future of televisions.

This is only a concept – so you won’t be able to buy it anytime soon – but we can’t wait for Samsung to build a transparent MicroLED TV. The demos showed it features all the colors and vibrancy of OLED but with the addition of much better visibility in the well-lit demo area at CES. It is stunning and a worthy winner of our Best of CES 2024 Award.

TCL 115-inch QM8 mini LED TV

CES is the traditional place to see each company’s TV lineup for the year, and this year, TCL introduced the biggest-ever mini-LED TV. Measuring 115 inches, it boasts 5,000 peak nits brightness, which TCL claims is 2.5 times brighter than the current brightest TV.

Seeing this in person was incredible. It is one of the most breathtaking things to behold, and 20,000 individual dimming zones ensure that it will display your content exactly as intended. It is one of the most advanced TVs ever made, and we can’t wait to get one. The only problem is whether we have a wall big enough!

Clicks Creator Keyboard for iPhone

The Clicks Keyboard offers something unique for the iPhone: actual physical buttons.

Built by a team of keyboard aficionados, including CrackBerry Kevin and Michael Fisher – aka MrMobile – as well as the team from F(x)tec – who have built keyboard phones in the past – the Clicks Keyboard is a case that connects to the USB-C or Lightning port on your iPhone and offers access to familiar Mac-style shortcuts for your iPhone.

Clicks is unique in that it allows you to unleash the full productivity of your iPhone and frees up your entire screen, whereas the on-screen keyboard uses up to half of your screen. For $139, it provides protection and portability at an affordable price and works so well that we wonder why someone didn’t make it sooner.

ROXi FastStream

With all the great TVs, you may think you need to buy an expensive streaming device and an expensive cable or streaming plan to go with it. ROXi proved that you don’t need to do that and is at the forefront of a desire to make Broadcast TV suitable for the streaming generation with its new FastStream product.

Built upon the new ATSC 3.0 standard, FastStream enables traditional broadcast TV channels to offer streaming-like controls, including pause, forward, and the ability to select from various channels. All of this through your TV tuner, as long as you have a tuner and TV capable of supporting the new ATSC 3.0 standard.

Imagine watching the news from your local TV station and then being able to change to the news from a different part of the country. You can’t do that right now with broadcast TV, but with FastStream – built in partnership with Sinclair Broadcasting – this is how broadcast TV will work very soon.

Audio Radar – Gaming for the deaf

Imagine you can’t hear anything. We all likely know someone hard of hearing or completely deaf, and one area that will impact you is gaming. Imagine playing Call of Duty or another FPS game, and you can’t hear someone coming up or hear the direction they’re shooting at you from.

Audio Radar solves this with a truly unique solution. A set of LED light strips attached to your monitor or TV intercepts the audio signal and activates the LED light strips in the different corners based on the direction your foe is approaching or shooting at you from. This will enable millions of hearing-impaired people to play games and will majorly impact many people’s lives.

ViXion Adjustable Prescription Lenses

It’s not often we see true breakthroughs in the optical industry, at least not from startups at a show like CES. ViXion is proving that it’s not just EssilorLuxxotica – the maker of 85% of all eyewear frames in the world – who can innovate in eyewear.

ViXion showcased its new Prescription Lenses product built into a pair of glasses, and the concept is genius. When you buy prescription eyeglasses, you must get a prescription, and then the lenses are made at a fixed prescription. However, when your prescription changes, you have to rebuy them, and especially if you’re a diabetic or are visually impaired, this can be extremely expensive.

Instead of making lenses with fixed prescriptions, ViXions showcased lenses with built-in cameras that can be tuned to any prescription (from +15 to -15) simply by adjusting a dial on the arm of the glasses. This means that as your eyes change – which for diabetics can happen every few months – you can adjust the lenses instead of needing to buy all-new glasses.

Once tuned, the ViXion lenses also automatically focus when you need to focus on something near and then back when you focus on something further away. It’s one of the most unique ways we’ve seen technology used to solve a problem for tens of millions of people.

Razer Iskur V2 Gaming Chair

The Razer Iskur V2 Gaming Chair is the best gaming chair we’ve ever tried and the best office chair we’ve ever sat in. I’ve personally tested over 20 chairs, and with neck problems after spinal surgery a few years ago, the Razer Iskur V2 Gaming Chair is the first chair I’ve found that made me feel instantly relaxed.

4D armrests, tons of padding, and a redesigned head cushion provide comfort unlike any other chair. The 6D lumbar support is the key feature here – it is adjustable in every direction to find the perfect position and size for the small of your back and every back. There’s no other chair like it, and it’s already available.

TCL RayNeo X2 Lite AR Glasses

The TCL RayNeo X2 Lite AR Glasses prove that a year can make a big difference, and TCL’s redesigned second-generation AR glasses are lightweight, powerful, and look super cool. These glasses have a display inside the lenses, microphones, and cameras and access to an AI that provides simple answers.

We could ask where the nearest coffee shop was and see directions overlayed on the small screen and a few other applications, such as social media. These glasses are the future of AR, and we can’t wait to see them come to the market later this year.

PawPort smart pet flap

Smart doors aren’t just limited to our human family members – PawPort is bringing smart door functionality to your cat or dog flap.

Built to mount over a traditional pet flap, the doors are available in various styles and work with an NFC tag that your pet wears on its collar; when your pet approaches, the doors open, and you get notified.

If you’ve ever wondered how often your pet leaves the house or are worried about other animals entering your home, PawPort is the solution, and it’s available to order now.

TCL NXTPaper Technology & Tablets

TCL wins two awards for its NXTPaper technology at CES: one for the technology and one for its application in its new tablet.

We’ve been big fans of the possibilities for TCL NXTPaper since it was first introduced a few years ago, and the latest generation – TCL’s third generation of e-ink displays – is stunning.

Built to leverage the benefits of e-ink displays in terms of eye strain, brightness, and viewability, TCL’s new NXTPaper tablet comes in different sizes and, with a tap of a button, can switch between traditional LCD, a color e-ink display and a full grayscale display.

It’s the first time we’ve seen e-ink used in such a way, and the underlying technology was also showcased working on a TV that looked just as stunning as any other TV. We can’t wait to see where else TCL uses the NXTPaper technology.

Asus ROG Phone 8 Pro

We don’t often see phones introduced at CES – that is usually reserved for Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month – but ASUS showed up with its latest ROG gaming phone, and the ROG Phone 8 Pro is fantastic.

The only company still making high-end gaming smartphones, the ROG 8 Pro retains the blazing-fast performance and expert cooling from previous phones while being slimmer, lighter, and water resistant. It also features a flagship camera, and ASUS proves you can have everything in one phone.

Withings Beamo

Withings is one of the companies I trust my health to, and for a good reason. It’s continually pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in at-home healthcare, and the Beamo is the latest example of this.

The Beamo is the world’s first device to give you four at-home health checkups in just a minute. It can check your body temperature, listen to your heart and lungs, check your blood oxygen level, and provide a medical-grade ECG. All of this then syncs to the fantastic Withings app. I can’t wait to get my hands on one – it will always be in my travel bag.

Lenovo ThinkBook Gen 5 Plus Hybrid

Have you ever wanted a tablet and a PC rolled into one? Imagine a tablet that can dock into a PC and run Windows but run Android when you undock it. Lenovo showcased just this at CES.

When docked into a laptop base, it runs Windows 11 and has 16GB of RAM with an Intel Core 7 Ultra processor. When the display is removed from the dock, it runs the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor with 8GB of RAM and is smooth. The best part is that you don’t even need the tablet to use the PC – you can plug the keyboard base into a monitor, and you have a powerful Windows PC.

The Lenovo ThinkBook Gen 5 Plus Hybrid gives all new meaning to the phrase 2-in-1, and it supports a stylus on either platform. When the tablet is docked, you can press a button, and the tablet will run Android while you can continue using Windows on the connected monitor. It’s coming later this year and is the best 2-in-1 device ever.

Rabbit R1

AI was one of the key buzzwords at CES 2024, but one of the biggest moments came with the launch of the Rabbit R1, a small palm-sized gadget that wants to help AI be helpful to you.

Rabbit says the gadget can learn how to use apps on your behalf. This means you’ll be able to press a button and ask it to summon an Uber, order takeout, or – presumably – do a bunch of simple other tasks in various apps.

Unlike the Humane AI pin, which requires an expensive subscription, the Rabbit R1 will retail for just $199 without a subscription. Founder Jesse Lyu is one of our HoT 24 in 2024 winners, and the Rabbit R1 is a worthy winner of our Best of CES 2024 award!

Asus ZenBook Duo

Computers with multiple displays have been a major trend at recent CES shows. Last year saw Lenovo launch the YogaBook 9i with two incredible OLED screens, and this year, ASUS showed off its version: the ZenBook Duo.

It features two large 14-inch OLED displays and a detachable Bluetooth keyboard, offering two incredible multitasking displays and the ultimate in portable productivity. At a starting price of $1,500, it’s also accessible to everyone. If you travel a lot, this is the best alternative to carrying a second monitor!

LG UltraGear 32GS9UE Dual Mode Monitor

There were hundreds of impressive computer monitors at CES – which is the case every year – but the LG UltraGear 32GS9UE stood out for one key reason: it’s the first gaming monitor that can change its resolution and refresh rate with a single click.

Every game requires something different, and this 32-inch OLED monitor lets you easily switch between a 4k monitor operating at 240Hz refresh rate to a Full-HD monitor at 480Hz. For gamers, this is the equivalent of having two excellent gaming monitors in one, and this gaming monitor sets the standard in 2024!

GE Profile Smart Indoor Smoker

If you live in a small dwelling, don’t have a backyard, or live in an apartment building, you’ll know the frustration of watching friends show off their perfectly smoked meats and knowing you’ll never be able to achieve the same. Or at least, you couldn’t until CES 2024.

GE showed off its new Smart Indoor Smoker, and it’s perfect for those cold winter nights or if you don’t have a backyard. The Active Smoke Filtration system keeps the smoke inside and turns it into warm air that gently smokes your food. It won’t set off your smoke alarm, and while it does let a little carbon monoxide out, it’s built to be completely safe to use in your home.

This is one of the coolest kitchen gadgets we’ve seen at CES in years, and at a price of $999, it’s also accessible to all. It’s available now at Best Buy and other retailers. While we expected it only to be for those who didn’t have an outdoor smoker, GE told us most of its initial customers are those with multiple smokers who want the ability to smoke indoors.

DreameBot X30 Ultra

I’m a big fan of Dreame’s range of robot vacuum cleaners. I’ve got a DreameBot in my home right now, and at CES, I found my next one: the DreameBot X30 Ultra.

The X30 Ultra solves key problems with other robot vacuum cleaners and mops. First, it can be difficult to clean corners, so the brushes extend to grab those hard-to-reach places. Second, it has built-in scrapers that clean the base station plates, so you don’t have to. The days of cleaning your cleaner are past, and I can’t wait to get the DreameBot X30 Ultra into my home.

Sony Afeela

I’ve wanted to try out Sony’s new car since it was announced at CES last year. Built with Honda Mobility, it isn’t coming out until 2026. You might be wondering – Sony, a technology company, making a car?

That was my initial reaction, but having now sat inside and experienced Afeela, I will pre-order one when pre-orders open next year.

Why? Afeela is the ultimate showcase of technology and mobility combining to build a car of the future. Rather than a car maker attempting to incorporate technology into a traditional car, Afeela is a radical concept that puts technology first and builds the car around it.

A stunning array of sensors means it can showcase the entire world around the car. Whereas Tesla and others can showcase outlines around the car (regarding other cars and possible obstacles), Afeela recognizes everything from other vehicles to stop signs, traffic lights, and so much more.

Imagine the detail and information in a game like Grand Theft Auto, except in a real car that you drive (and can drive you). It’s the most breathtaking next-generation car I’ve sat in, and I can’t wait to pre-order it. I also can’t wait to see how much farther Sony has developed it by CES next year!

With that, CES 2024 is a wrap. Twenty of the most innovative and impactful products at CES across the widest range of categories we’ve ever recognized. Stay tuned for more on these and the latest hot technology over the coming weeks and months!
