The best tech of CES 2018

The new year may start on Jan. 1, but for the tech world it doesn’t really begin until CES, the world’s largest consumer electronics show, opens its doors in Las Vegas and gives us a grand look at the future.

With over 4,000 companies exhibiting at CES this year, there was no shortage of shiny new gadgets to play with and see. The Mashable Tech Team scoured the sprawling show to find the best, and potentially game-changing, gadgets and innovations that are coming. 

The usual suspects — phones, self-driving cars, PCs, paper-thin TVs, and robots — all showed up in full force. But there were also plenty of fresh concepts that, if nothing else, are a sign of the industry dreaming big. Technology is the engine that makes fantasy a reality, after all.

Without further ado, here are Mashable’s top picks of CES 2018. We’ll continue to update the list throughout the show, so be sure to check back for new announcements.
