8 CES Gadgets You Have To See, January 11, 2013 Sure, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is a giant circus, but it always features something revolutionary, or at least oddly interesting. Maybe even useful. Here are eight compelling products that emerged from the show; judge for yourself how useful they might (eventually) be.
Trakdot Luggage Tracker
OK, this one violates the premise by being obviously and immediately useful. GlobaTrac introduced a tracking device designed to be thrown in your luggage that lets you know if your bag made it to the same city you did. Trakdot uses cell-phone networks rather than GPS to find its location, which it can text or email to your laptop or cell phone. It's $49.95 plus $8.99 activation and $12.99 annual service fee.
