At the on-going CES 2020 conference, there are hundreds of products hitting the public for the first time. While some of these products are what we expect, many of them are at best, weird. Every year, CES not only displays the most cutting-edge technologies and hotspots, but also a variety of strange, weird and interesting equipment. More than 4,500 exhibitors participated this year.
