As the in­dus­try’s flag­ship event, the In­ter­na­tional Con­sumer Elec­tron­ics Show is a bit of a big deal in tech cir­cles. Ev­ery year it of­fers all the ma­jor play­ers, emerg­ing forces and shiny new star­tups the op­por­tu­nity to show­case their wares on the global

If it’s hap­pen­ing in tech in 2015, it was at CES in Las Ve­gas! Find out what caught TekSavvy In­sider’s eye at the big­gest and best CES to date, di­rect from Las Ve­gas...

As any­one who has ever at­tended the event can at­test, it’s a whirl­wind of press con­fer­ences, in­ter­views, show­cases and me­dia events, punc­tu­ated with lav­ish spreads, con­certs and an over­ar­ch­ing party at­mos­phere, but at its core it all boils down the one im­por­tant thing: the op­por­tu­nity to get a first look at the tech­nolo­gies that’ll un­der­pin the next twelve months in the tech­nol­ogy world, from smartphones to ac­ces­sories to home en­ter­tain­ment to cars and just about ev­ery­thing in be­tween.

Over the next 7 pages we’re go­ing to take a look at our favourite prod­ucts from the event, sep­a­rat­ing the wheat from the chaff and giv­ing you the very best CES 2015 had to of­fer, so sit back, re­lax and pre­pare to take a look at what the com­ing year in tech­nol­ogy has to of­fer…
