This is the year that the first Kickstarter product, the Luminae Translucense Keyboard, made as a Last Gadget winner and boy were we sorry. The company went out of business not long after the awards were etched.  A cautionary tale of a crowd-funded future.

A more tried-and-true winner came from Lenovo with its Horizon Idea Center Table PC. The crowd roared as they saw one of the first table PCs be hefted on to victory.  Tablets would come in all sizes from this day forth.
