Last week was an exciting week in the world of tech. The iconic Consumer Electronics Show (which has been around since 1967) was held on January 6 to January 9 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

While there was an incredible amount of innovation and adaptation shared over the four days, we wanted to share some of the most anticipated gadgets that appeared (and some that may even be in your price range)!

Lo and behold, our CES 2016 round-up:

1. Ehang 184 Drone
This Autonomous Aerial Vehicle (AAV) is a 440lb drone that will carry a single passenger from one location to another ON ITS OWN. Get in, power it up, and select your destination with a touchscreen, and you’ll be on your way. Get all of the details here.

2. Oculus Rift
This highly anticipated Virtual Reality (VR) headset was put head to head (get it?) with other popular VR tech, HTC Vive and PlayStation VR during CES. But due to the many skilled developers working on Oculus Rift, this technology seemed to have the most VR options to hopefully make the $500-600 price range worth it.

3. Here Active Listening earbuds
With just a set of earbuds and an app, you will be able to block out loud noises, amplify human voices, and manipulate individual sounds. Imagine being at a concert and being able to clearly hear your friend right next to you, or drown out the other voices and better hear your favorite song. You can get on the waitlist on their Kickstarter page.

4. Polaroid SNAP
In four bold colors, you can take a picture with a 10 megapixel camera which stores up to 32 gigabytes, and prints 2×3” full color prints instantly. With filter, border, and shutter options, the Polaroid camera just took Instagram to a whole new level. Best part? It can be purchased for under $100.

5. Lenovo WireleMoss N700 Mouse
The $60 Bluetooth computer yoga mouse, is a beautiful addition to your desk that will fold into a downward dog to double as a clicker to use in presentations. Also including a laser pointer, makes this a highly demanded item for an average tech enthusiast.
