The 2013 International CES is in the books. There were over 3,000 exhibitors, over 20,000 new product announcements and I, along with 150,000 of my closest friends, got a chance to play with some truly awesome consumer electronics – so, when will this new crop of gear hit the market? Seeing a 110” Ultra HD TV set at CES is one thing, but seeing it in your living room is something else altogether. Ultimately, all we can do is wait. We’ll also wait for quirky little gadgets like the Hapifork, which may be the silliest gadget at this year’s show, to make their way to market. We’ll wait to see self-driving cars on the road and it may also be a while before some of the most interesting biometric monitoring gadgets hit the market.  One thing you can be sure of, there will be dozens of new smartphones, phablets and tablets coming very soon.  It’s a relentless cycle of new products that will lead us right back to CES next year.
