This year's Consumer Electronics show in Las Vegas Nevada, offered some of the most exciting product announcements we've seen in any previous CES show thus far. The past three years' CES
shows have been rather snoozy, to be honest, with the economy taking its toll on product design investment and innovation. However, this year's CES showed great promise of not only emerging technologies and product innovations but with the sheer number of announcements and the notable increase in attendance (as well as city traffic, which was a nightmare), it was all a very encouraging sign of the health of our nation's economy and that we're actually finally on the up-tick.
Regardless, we took time here to wrap-up our show favorites from the major players, in this Hottest Products of CES 2011 showcase. These were the stand-outs in our opinion
, in a sea of technology deep and wide enough to make any self-respecting geek grin from ear to ear.
