CES 2024, the world's largest tech show, brought us lots of wild and innovative tech, from transparent TVs to a robotic pillow that can help you stop snoring (really). And while some of those products may never actually hit stores, there are a ton of cool and helpful gadgets unveiled at the show that you can buy or preorder right now, ranging from TVs to magnetic chargers to smart lights.

Read on for the best tech we've seen on the ground at CES 2024 that you can actually buy.

The HP Omen Transcend packs some truly innovative display technology into an unassuming gaming laptop. The 14-inch display gives you 2.8K resolution and up to 100 percent of the sRGB color gamut for more lifelike images and better color accuracy. It also uses an OLED panel for superior contrast. And with HP's DC dimming technology, screen brightness is adjusted by controlling the flow of electricity rather than cycling through the backlight.

The MSI Vector 17 HX is similar to the Raider GE68 HX, but it only features a single 1TB SSD and SSD slot. This means that you can swap out the stock storage drive at any time, but folks who like to have separate boot and storage drives are out of luck. The 17-inch display gives you 2560 x 1600 resolution with a 240Hz refresh rate.

The MSI Raider GE68 HX is a powerful, high-end gaming laptop. It's built with a 14th generation Intel Core i9 processor, Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 graphics card, 32GB of RAM, and a 2TB SSD storage drive. The 16-inch display gives you 4K resolution and a 144Hz refresh rate for incredible picture quality and smoother action during gameplay and cutscenes.

The MSI Prestige AI Evo is built with Intel's new Ultra 7 155H chip, which is AI-assisted for better multitasking and efficiency. It's built with a 1TB SSD, but with a second SSD slot, you can expand and replace storage drives as-needed. You can also choose either a 16-inch IPS 2560 x 1600 display or a 16-inch 4K OLED screen for better image quality and color accuracy.

Razer/ZDNET

Razer has refreshed their Blade line of laptops for 2024 with 14th generation Intel Core processors, up to 86GB of RAM, up to 8TB of storage, and an OLED display capable of a 240Hz refresh rate. You can also configure the new Razer Blade with up to an Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card for all of the power and performance you'll need for animating, video and photo editing, and gaming.

TCL has refreshed its S-Series line of televisions with the S5, the first to bring the brand's AiPQ engine to the mid-range model. Right now, you can buy the 98-inch version, but more screen sizes are on the way in 2024. Along with tons of screen space, you'll also get support for Dolby Vision IQ HDR for enhanced detailing, contrast, and color and more lifelike images. 

The S5 will also support DTS Virtual: X audio for clean, clear sound in movies, shows, and music. And with the Google TV platform, you'll get built-in support for the Hey Google virtual assistant as well as access to thousands of streaming apps. You can also connect the S5 to your Alexa account if you prefer Amazon's virtual assistant. 

Anker MagGo Power Bank

Anker's MagGo Power Bank (6,600mAh) uses Qi2 technology to snap onto the back of compatible Apple and Android phones, and deliver up to one full charge. It also doubles as a phone stand. Buy it for $70 today.

Magmo Pro

Unfortunately, you can't record on your iPhone if you're on a call, unless you use a separate device or Google Voice. The Magmo Pro is now an option as well: Snap it on the back of your phone, and it can automatically record calls for you. It also gives you the option to manually start and stop recording yourself. The recordings are accessible on an app, where you can also access AI-generated transcriptions.

Garmin/ZDNET

Garmin's latest Lily smartwatch is designed for those who want a smaller, more stylish smartwatch that still offers access to Garmin's health and wellness features. You can buy one in a variety of colors and band materials now, starting at $249.

HP's latest gaming laptop weighs 3.6 lbs, and features a 2.8K 120 Hz VRR OLED display, up to 11.5 hours of battery life, top-of-the-line heat dissipation, and local AI through its Intel and NVIDIA processors. It's available for preorder now starting at $1,499. The 16-inch version will be available on Wednesday.

MSI Crosshair 17
June Wan/ZDNET

MSI revealed several new gaming laptops at CES, including a new Stealth series and updates to its Titan, Raider, Vector, Crosshair, and others. 

Satechi's new $99 SM1 keyboard is the company's first for both Windows and Mac devices. The rechargeable keyboard features a 75% layout with low-profile, high-quality mechanical switches. It's backlit and features 14 different backlight patterns, and there's also a lockscreen shortcut key for added security on Macs. 

If you want to keep tabs on your dog with an AirTag tracker, this Dog Collar for AirTag from Catalyst can hold an AirTag in a waterproof Catalyst Clip-It case so it never gets lost. You can pre-order the collar now for $25 and it will ship in January. The Catalyst Clip-It Case for AirTag is available now for $35.

Clicks Technology

If you miss actually pushing buttons while you text, this attachable case accessory from Click provides iPhone users with a full physical keyboard, without consuming any of the device's screen real estate. You can buy one now starting at $139.

These new Audio-Technica X7 true wireless earbuds offer high-fidelity audio and digital hybrid noise-canceling and promise all-day comfort, a secure fit, and crystal-clear voice calling. ZDNET's Jada Jones tried them out, and said "[they] feel like a pair of premium earbuds meant for those who enjoy high-res audio but prefer to wear earbuds instead of on-ear or over-ear headphones."

The EcoFlow Delta Pro Ultra is a powerful smart hybrid whole-house battery generator and backup system, that could power essential appliances in a home for up to a month in the event of a power outage or natural disaster. Right now it's on sale for $800 off its usual price of $5,799.

Review: EcoFlow's largest backup battery is one of the most impressive power solutions I've tested

The Nanoleaf Skylight Smart Modular Ceiling Light is a set of square light panels that are meant to be installed on the ceiling, with a flush-mount design and a wide array of color options to choose from. Installation involves hard-wiring one panel, like when replacing an existing light fixture, and users can subsequently add up to 100 additional squares that you can control via an app. It's available for preorder right now starting at $250, and will ship in late January.

Motion Pillow
Sabrina Ortiz/ZDNET

We weren't kidding about the pillow: The Motion Pillow uses AI to help tackle snoring problems and give you a better night's sleep. The AI Motion System detects a user's snoring and slowly inflates airbags to lift their head and open their airway to reduce it. The accompanying app tracks sleep data, including snoring time, airbag operation time, sleep score, sleep time, and even recordings of your snoring to play back later. It usually costs $699, but it's 40% off during CES, retailing at $420.
