Best VR: HTC Vive Pro Eye
HTC Vive Pro Eye brings new excitement to the VR space. The headset has Tobii eye tracking built into it, allowing the user to do things like select a menu option just by looking at it. The power and fun that come with controlling things with your eyes should not be overlooked.
Best Robot: UBTech Walker
The Jetsons future you've always dreamed of is here. UBTech's Walker is a true robotic butler that can walk over to the fridge, grab you a beer and bring it to you. The 4.7-foot, 170-pound automaton has 36 actuators that allow it to move its legs, arms and hands in very human ways.
Though the Walker is still in development, it's fair to say that this is one of the most advanced consumer robots ever made. Could a new generation of flying cars be far behind?

Best SSD: Intel Optane H10
Intel Optane H10
Intel’s Optane storage brings the bleeding-edge performance of 3D XPoint to storage, but the company’s first products were designed for caching and the follow-on SSDs were too small for most users. That changes with the Intel Memory H10 series.
The new device blends the potency of Optane storage with the capacity and low price point of QLC flash, making it a capacious storage device that should be much faster than most garden-variety SSDs. Capacities stretch up to 1 TB, which should be enough storage for most users. The slim devices are a good fit for notebooks and will find their way into many OEM devices, but Intel hasn’t committed to bringing them to the retail market yet. Here’s hoping we see these on shelves soon.

Best Bag: Asus ROG Ranger BP3703
Asus proves there's no such thing as too-much RGB with the Ranger BP3703, which has colorful LEDs on the front, a controller in the back and internal light to help you find the pen that's been rolling around somewhere in the front pocket.
The bag is water resistant and has dedicated pockets for your phone, tablet and pens, in addition to a laptop with up to a 17-inch screen. A USB port on the back allows you to charge your phone.
Best Desk: Lian Li DK-04-F
Lian Li has been making desk cases for years. But its latest model features a layer built into the glass top that, when electrified, switches the glass from clear to opaque, hiding your components and their RGB lights with the press of a button. Because as cool as it is to have your custom LED-lit desktop built into your desk, sometimes you'll want to get down to some work without the distraction of your PC parts blinking up at you.
