Last week, more than 3600 technology vendors converged on the Las Vegas Convention Center to show off their latest wares for CES 2016. There was an enormous amount of product on the labyrinthine showroom floor covering every category imaginable. Some of these gadgets were incredibly impressive. Others were laughably terrible. Here are our Best & Worst picks from the show.
Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
The Consumer Electronics Show wrapped up in Las Vegas last week. Every year, tech companies get together to show off all their coolest stuff. Most of it isn't as cool as they think. However, some trends give us an idea of what we can look forward to from tech in 2016.
Today at CES 2016, Lenovo teased an upcoming smartphone that will be made in conjunction with Google's motion-sensing wunderkind; Project Tango. This will be the first Tango-enabled mobile device for consumers and it promises to provide a "magic window" of digital information and objects in the real world.

But helmet manufacturer Babaali is offering something that could actually prove useful: a Google Glass-style eyepiece that gives you a live video stream of everything behind you.
The Lenovo Ideapad Y900 is a colossal 17-inch laptop aimed squarely at the hardcore gaming set. It boasts an overclockable 6th generation Intel Core i7 K-series quad core processor, a Nvidia GTX 980M discrete graphics cards, up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM and a full mechanical keyboard. We checked out the device on the CES showroom floor. Here are our first impressions.
These days, most tablets and laptops come with unique hardware applications (some would call them "gimmicks") in an attempt to stand out from the crowd. It might be a fancy 3D camera, a battery extender or even an inbuilt projector. Usually, it's entirely unproven technology that could prove useful... or it might be a flash in the pan. Lenovo is looking to eliminate this uncertainty with the ThinkPad X1 Tablet. Instead of saddling itself to one feature, it offers a choice of three clip-on modules to suit the needs of different customers. Or you can sit on the fence and ignore them all.
