Today marks the end of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, the biggest trade show on the planet, and a sprawling preview of the most exciting tech slated for release throughout the coming year. It's an event too big for one convention center (it barely fits into three, plus countless hotel suites), and too diverse to be summed up in a single trend piece (though journalists are never afraid to try). For all the attention garnered by 4K TVs, the show floors were packed with more sensor-embedded gadgets than ever before. And from computer vision systems for driverless cars to the first-ever production hydrogen car — Toyota's $50,000 Mirai — some of the biggest announcements at CES 2015 were automotive. Putting the entire event into context is a fool's game.

So let's talk about the stuff that stood out at CES, the individual gadgets that deserve the most praise — and the most scorn. Of all the products we saw first-hand, here are the ones we either instantly wanted to take home, or couldn't resist taking down.
