This week, the flashiest, most advanced show and tell of the year is going down in Las Vegas. It's the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES), of course. More than 3,800 companies descend on Sin City in the hopes that their gadget will prove to be the next Amazon Alexa or a worthy iPhone competitor.

Ahead, 15 insanely cool new products everyone is talking about. We'll be updating this throughout the week, so be sure to check back for more.
