Last Gadget Standing Highlights

CES 2020 Las Vegas

At the 20th Annual Last Gadget Standing event on Jan 9th at CES, in front of 500 tech enthusiasts, Waverly Labs Ambassador, an automatic translation tool and MedWand, a telemedicine tool both took home the title of 'Last Gadget Standing'.  The selection of the winners was by applause loudness, and in both the first round and the runoff Ambassador and MedWand were perfectly tied. 

"This was one of the closest voting polls we have seen in the past 20 years – it was quite exhilarating, and we are thrilled to have two winners for this year," shared Robin Raskin, Living in Digital Times Founder and President. "Regardless of who won, everyone on stage today was a winner. Each finalist promises to improve our lives in so many ways and they certainly impressed everyone in the room."

The ten finalists, selected from hundreds of impressive tech products by Gadget’s panel of judges, each presented a fast-paced four-minute demo on stage at CES: 


The event was hosted by Jennifer Jolly, Emmy award-winning tech-life TV show host,  and writer for The New York Times, USA Today and many others. The contest's media and production partner, Getgeeked.tv, produced the famed halftime trivia contest where the audience won exciting swag by correctly answering esoteric tech questions.

Winner Ambassador Interpreter wowed the audience with its high-quality translation tool for professionals and travelers. Its over-the-ear design makes it as hygienic and versatile as it is shareable, with seamless pairing, simple sharing and adaptable settings for natural and professional-grade live translations across the globe.

Las Vegas physician Dr. Samir Qamar won the audience over with his invention MedWand, a handheld medical diagnostic device. MedWand contains a powerful camera system, pulse oximeter, IR thermometer, stethoscope and ECG all in a single 4-ounce enclosure. In addition to the real-time remote exams, it can be used by home health care, EMS, hospice and palliative care workers, as well as assisted living home monitoring environments.

There was also an online contest for the People's Choice award. This year there were three winners:


  • WowCube is a Rubik's cube inspired electronic platform for gaming and much more
  • ClearUP is an electronic wand for sinus pain relief
  • ThermArt is smartphone enabled ear and forehead thermometer

With this year’s strong field of contenders and exciting products and demos, Last Gadget again proved to be the most fun contest at CES, and the only contest where the audience picked the winner.
