In many ways CES 2021 is very different from what we on the Gear team have been in before. Instead of running around Las Vegas cramming all the stuff and becoming severely dehydrated, we sat home and watched the briefing after the Zoom briefing, but CES is still a season of spending money. Designed to demand your highest wishes, whether it’s a gorgeous gaming chair, an inexpensive laptop, or just a sprayer, these are some of our favorite things to showcase at. CES, which you can buy right away to scratch that itch.
