Welcome back to Show and Tell, where I unbox sweet tech for every area of your life. In this episode, I showcase the top winners from the 2021 Consumer Electronics Show. (For a rundown of the greatest tech from last year’s show, click here.) If you don’t know about CES, it’s a global technology event where high-profile developers and innovators can show off their cutting-edge inventions while checking out their peers. This year, there were nearly 2,000 exhibitors, but let’s point out our favorite CES 2021 Top Picks of the best products announced.

TROVA’s tiny, aluminum alloy storage device allows you to hide things in plain sight, including jewelry, vapes, prescriptions, and all other small objects you’d like to keep safe. It has biometric capabilities and alerts you when it’s out of range so you never leave it behind.

Twinkly lights are WiFi-enabled LED lights that you can control and customize from an app. They released a new line this year including Twinkly Line, which is a 100-bulb strip, and Twinkly Flex, which can contour to any area or shape. There’s also Twinkly Squares which is a flat panel of LED squares that you can program to display anything.

Step aside, Rubik’s cube. This STEM-certified gaming system “allows you to interact with the digital world like it is a real object.” Tilt, tap, shake and twist the WOWCube to complete puzzles and arcade games. You can even create your own games on the open platform.
