If you have been by following CES 2022, you’ve probably added a lot of gadgets to your wish list. There are many things that won’t be ready until the second half of this year — some may never see the light of day — but don’t worry! We’ve put together our favorite CES devices that are now available for purchase or booking. We’re talking headphones, smart watches, projectors, and a snowmobile. Here’s what you can add to your cart right now.

Home Routers, Sex Tech and Wi-Fi
Veterinarians say that automatic garbage cans, while convenient, make it difficult for owners to control trips to their cat’s bathroom, which can be helpful in detecting any potential illness. Leo’s Loo Too fixes this with a built-in sensor that tracks how often your cat is walking, along with its weight, and syncs data with a complementary app on your phone. Comes with additional features such as UV sterilization and radar to prevent the box from self-cleaning while your cat is nearby.
This device gives a new meaning to “bird watching”. This cute little domestic bird not only feeds, but its battery-powered camera delivers live power via the connected app. If this is not entertaining enough, he will take pictures of these birds, identify the species and present a lot of data about each one. It will not be shipped for a while, but you can already receive your order.
Need an extra layer of security at home? Ring’s new glass-breaking sensor can detect intrusion attempts through windows and glass doors from up to 25 feet away. You will need a Ring Alarm or Ring Alarm Pro to use it, and you can configure the sensor to activate a siren when it detects broken glass. It is currently available for pre-order in a single package for $ 40 or a two-pack for $ 70. (Note: WIRED has reported extensively on Ring Doorbells in relation to security, surveillance, i police collaborations.)
A projector is not the kind of gadget you would have on your person at all times, but Samsung flight whatever. Your Freestyle projector is designed for portability – just plug it into your laptop via USB-C or HDMI ports (or stream via Android / iOS) and point it at any surface. With a resolution of 1080p, a 360-degree speaker and a screen ranging from 30 to 100 inches, this thing is small but powerful. Also available on Amazon.
TCL says demand for larger screens is high. That’s why it’s launching a massive 98-inch model of its existing Class XL TV for a whopping $ 8,000; yes, you read that correctly. This version works with Google TV and has a QLED panel. TCL also announced that its 2022 TV models will have the option for Android TV or Roku OS. The XL Class is now out of stock, but please check again.
If you want to upgrade your home theater projector, check out the Hisense PX1-Pro. Its image diameter has a range of 90 to 120 inches, a 4K resolution and a refresh rate of 60 Hz for games. It also works with Android TV, so you’ll have access to the Google Assistant and a variety of real-time playback apps to choose from.
They’re expensive, but NetGear’s Orbi Pro WiFi 6E mesh system is great for those with very large homes. It has the latest Wi-Fi 6E standard and combined speeds of 10.8 Gbps up to 9,000 square feet.
The Com de Dame Magic Wand is a vibrator that includes the company’s strongest engine to date and includes five different intensity settings and patterns to choose from. Its design allows for a flexible neck and a curved handle, making it easier to find the right angle and grab it. It is made of medical grade silicone and comes in two colors: periwinkle and quartz.
Smart watches, headphones and other technologies
It’s been two years since Skagen launched a new version of its Falster smartwatch. The new model features a 42mm case and offers a number of different colors and styles to choose from (including the combination of silver leather and espresso shown above). It works with Google’s Wear OS with Qualcomm’s latest Wear 4100+ processor to give you more efficient battery life, optimized performance, and improved health tracking. Its internal components are identical to the Gen 6 Fossil we tested last year, about which you can read more in our guide to the best smartwatches. The new Wear OS 3 update is expected later this year.
Garmin has expanded its line of Venu smart watches with the Venu 2 Plus. You can now use it to receive calls on both iOS and Android, as well as talk to your favorite voice assistant (Siri, Google Assistant, or Bixby) using the built-in microphone. The 43 mm case comes in powder gray, black and gold (all are made of stainless steel combined with a matching silicone strap).
Those who don’t want to spend close to $ 500 on a Garmin can opt for the much more affordable Vivomove Sport Hybrid. Unlike the Venu 2 Plus, this one looks like a traditional analog clock. But you can still keep track of your basic physical workouts with blood oxygen measurements.
Aren’t you a fan of quirky colored headphones? Snag JLab Go Air Tones, which come in a wide range of skin tones and are designed to match your ears. For just $ 20, they’re not top-notch heads, but they offer IPX4 sweat resistance and eight hours of battery life (according to JBL).
Smart Pepper Spray may sound weird, but it could be a feature you didn’t know you wanted. Once connected to the app, it will send an alert to your emergency contacts with your exact location each time you spray it. Even if you don’t want to use the container right away, you can still use the app to send your location to family or friends so they can follow you until you’re sure.
Formerly known as the AeroPex line, Shockz’s OpenRun Pro headphones include the company’s bone conduction technology that vibrates the bones of the head by sound waves, sending audio directly to the inner ear. That way, you can still hear the ambient noise around you while listening to music. Other features include IP55 water resistance, up to an hour and a half of battery life after a five minute charge and 10 hours of total battery life.
If you’re like me, you tend to lose a lot of your wallet. Chipolo’s Card Spot is here to help. It’s in the form of a credit card, and you can just slide it into your wallet to keep track of it. It supports Apple’s Find My network, so if you’re an Apple user and you lose your wallet, you can track it using Find My on your Apple device. Android owners will have to look elsewhere.
If most of your appliances have USB-C ports, the Plugable USB4 Hub will be a useful addition to your home workstation. With three USB4 / Thunderbolt 4 ports and a 10 gigabit USB-A port per second, you can use it to charge your devices and connect various displays and other accessories.
Equipped with a new artificial intelligence autonomous flight system called KeyFrame, Skydio 2+ is designed to help you capture smoother video images while managing complex flight patterns. You can choose from different configurations, such as the starter kit, sports kit, professional kit, and movie kit, which add accessories such as MicroSD cards, a hard case, and a joystick controller.
Moonbike is not yours typical ebike: the front wheel has been replaced by a single ski, while the electrically driven snow wheel takes the place of the rear wheel. This way, you can ride it freely in the snow. At almost £ 200, the Moonbike can reach 26 miles per hour, but you’ll only have about an hour of battery life. Those who can afford it can book their Moonbike now, and it will be shipped later this month.
In the market for an electric van? You may want to wait for the Chevy Silverado EV 2024. It offers 400 miles of full-charge range (which is more than the standard 230-mile distance of the Ford F-150 Lightning EV) and includes GM’s Level 2 autonomous driving mode, known as the Super Cruise. Currently available for pre-order, it offers a choice of two trim levels: the RST First Edition for $ 105,000 and the WT for $ 39,900 less intense. You can book it now, but it will not be delivered until the fall of 2023 and the summer of 2024, respectively.
