The single coolest thing at CES just might be Delta's Parallel Reality, which lets up to 100 people see their own personalized message while staring at the same screen. It's pure magic, and could make finding your destination just a bit easier when it eventually rolls out to Delta airport gates.

LG completely blew our minds with its connected self-driving 2030 concept car, which can recognize your face, serve you drinks and deliver personalized entertainment via a private speaker system and dynamic OLED screen. Not to be outdone, Sony also showed up in the automotive scene, debuting its first electric car in the Vision S. We also got to ride in BMW's Urban Suite, a large vehicle meant to let you sprawl out and relax during long autonomous trips, as well as Segway's S-Pod, a self-balancing personal vehicle meant to let you easily scoot around malls and campuses.

Alienware has stolen the show with the Concept UFO: a portable gaming PC that combines the versatility of the Nintendo Switch with the guts of a powerful gaming rig. Still no word on whether it'll come to market, but we sure hope it does so that we can enjoy some Cyberpunk 2077 on the go.

On the TV front, Samsung wowed with the Q950TS: a massive 8K OLED TV that has virtually no bezels and a ton of neat AI smarts inside for optimal picture quality. We also saw Samsung's rotating Sero TV, which can be positioned vertically to become a massive 43-inch display for watching social video in the living room.

CES may not have the biggest phone news in the world, but we've already seen We both the Galaxy Note 10 Lite and Galaxy S10 Lite, which look to retain most of the flagship level features of their most expensive brethren within more affordable plastic designs. A concept phone from OnePlus, though, may have blown those other handsets away.
