Sam­sung In­fin­ity Edge dis­play

Just when we thought they’d reached their full po­ten­tial, Sam­sung went and turned phones into screens with its In­fin­ity Edge dis­play. Not only does it look in­cred­i­ble, giv­ing you more screen real es­tate than ever, it ac­tu­ally makes a big phone much smaller.

Ocu­lus Touch

The Kick­starter that cre­ated a VR mar­ket was usurped in last year’s awards. Now, Ocu­lus Touch adds mo­tion­sens­ing con­trol and a sec­ond mo­tion-sens­ing cam­era, so you can move in­di­vid­ual fin­gers in your games. Se­ri­ously clever.

Ap­ple MacBook Pro Touch Bar

There are those who love it, and those that don’t. The MacBook Pro was al­ready a ca­pa­ble ma­chine, but the Touch Bar’s in­stant ac­cess to com­monly used func­tions within apps makes it even eas­ier to work with. And it looks se­ri­ously slick.

Navdy

The best in-car up­grade around. By pro­ject­ing an image onto a trans­par­ent screen and plac­ing it in your line of sight, Navdy en­ables you to see all your driv­ing stats, whether it’s speed, or your lat­est email, without tak­ing your eyes off the road.

Nin­tendo Switch

The Switch is Nin­tendo at its best, up-end­ing the whole in­dus­try. While the Xbox One and PS4 fight over power, the Switch of­fers con­sole-qual­ity games in a tablet-sized pack­age that’s quickly rev­o­lu­tion­is­ing how peo­ple en­joy games.

Sony Xpe­ria Ear

Sony’s Xpe­ria Ear is like hav­ing Siri or Google As­sis­tant in your lug. This in-ear smart as­sis­tant of­fers phone no­tifca­tions through­out the day and will re­spond to your com­mands; it’ll even re­spond to your head move­ments.
