2017 RECAP

CES 2017

For the 17th year, Last Gadget Standing played to a full house. Emceed by the inimitable David Pogue, the competition pit ten products, each signifying a major trend at the show, into a quick paced competition. Audiences choose the winner, both with online and the volume of their cheers, measured via Applause-o-meter. Each finalist comes with a great product, so the crowd must look past trends for the products that will truly endure.
