Withings U-Scan

Withings is a brand well known for its health and fitness tracking tech, including smartwatches, smart bathroom scales, and even smart thermometers, but at CES 2023 it debuted one of the most peculiar health gadgets we’ve seen to date. The Withings U-Scan is the first gadget you actually need to drop in the toilet, as it’s designed to make health assessments by analyzing a user’s urine.

Nose Metal Motion Pillow

Nose Metal works similarly to the way a smartphone or smartwatch tracks snoring. There’s a subtle box you put next to the bed on your nightstand to listen to figure out your sleep habits. As it listens, it tells the pillow you’re laying on how to adjust so to increase airflow to your nose and throat.

Best Sounds Gadget

Razer Leviathan V2 Pro Desktop Soundbar

The Razer’s new Leviathan V2 Pro desktop soundbar promises to be a genuine replacement for multiple speakers positioned around a room. It uses a combination of clever beamforming tricks, manipulating the sounds coming from its multiple front-firing drivers so they instead seem to be coming from around the room, and an infrared camera that tracks the location of a user’s head in real-time and adjusts where the beamforming tricks are directed.

Best Car Gadget

Bosch RideCare Dashcam

Bosch’s RideCare looks like a standard windshield-mounted dashcam, and works like one too, capturing footage of the road ahead so a driver has video proof in the event of an accident they didn’t cause. But the RideCare includes a second camera capturing the interior of the vehicle too, along with a discreet, wireless panic button a driver can install anywhere and press to activate an emergency call to a Bosch-run call center staffed with operators who have access to a live feed from inside the vehicle so they can assess the situation and contact emergency services if the driver is unable to do so themselves.

This smart bird feeder sends notifications straight to your phone when you have a new or repeat visitor.
