I’m relieved to report that after attending last month’s Consumer Electronics Show, my brain didn’t explode. It very well might have, given that more than 3,200 exhibitors showcased a head-spinning variety of more than 20,000 new products.

While gawking at this boatload of innovative gadgetry, I picked up a slew of observations about the state of our digitized world. How ’bout this one, voiced by a representative of Bosch: “At the end of next year [2015], over 6 billion things will be connected to the Internet.” Yep, 6 billion.

And even though the annual show was in Las Vegas this year, I left knowing that what had happened in Vegas wouldn’t stay there. Here’s a list of just-launched techie treasures you’re likely to own sooner rather than later — because they’re too cool not to get.
