Thousands of products – from the useful to the bizarre – were unveiled at the massive tech trade show.
CES, the massive consumer electronic expo that takes over Las Vegas at the beginning of each year, launched over 20,000 products from more than 4,400 exhibiting companies in 2020. With more than 2.9 million net square feet of exhibit space, that’s a lot of new technology to sift through.
“This week at CES illustrated that every company is truly a tech company,” said Karen Chupka, executive vice president of CES. “Global technology brands blended with nontraditional tech companies to showcase how innovation is furthering business across all markets – setting the stage for the decade ahead.”
Tech companies showed off wall-sized TVs, laptops with foldable screens, driverless cars, meatless “Impossible Pork,” and much more. Here are a few of the gadgets that stood out, whether because they’re quirky, useful or a combination of both:
1. Samsung Ballie: Though it resembles a tennis ball, this gadget is actually a combination smart home device and robotic companion. Thanks to cameras and sensors, this “all-around life companion” can follow behind you – like a diminutive BB-8. The device can take photos, control smart home features and send you updates on your home when you’re away.
2. Prinker S temporary tattoo printer: A fabulous idea for brand activations and event marketing, this tattoo printer creates realistic-looking temporary tattoos in seconds. Users scroll through a companion app to choose a tattoo (or design their own) then pass the handheld printer over their skin to painlessly apply the ink, which lasts one to three days.

3. NURVV Run: These smart insoles are designed to help fix flawed running style. Each insole has 32 embedded sensors capable of capturing a wide range of running data, such as stride length, pronation, cadence and foot strike. After a run, that data is transferred to a companion smartphone app for analysis. The app then suggests ways to help runners avoid injuries and become stronger and faster during their runs.
4. Charmin RollBot: Charmin’s conceptual product – don’t expect to be able to purchase it anytime soon – is a rather cheeky marketing ploy. The RollBot can deliver a fresh roll of toilet paper to someone in distress, via smartphone control.
They really gonna call this "RollBot" and not "PooBear?" https://t.co/jkljS8kJM2— One Ring (doorbell) to surveil them all... (@hypervisible) January 6, 2020

5. Inupathy harness: Japanese company Langualess brought the Dr. Doolittle factor to CES. It Inupathy harness measures and analyzes your dog’s heartrate, using it to determine the canine’s mood. The harness changes color based on the animal’s mood, and owners can use the associated app to track their pet’s mood over time.
6. Y-Brush: If you though two minutes was just too long to devote to oral hygiene, rejoice. This smart brush is designed to clean all of your teeth in just 10 seconds – five seconds for the top and five for the bottom.

The inside story of how a Florida promo distributor has executed six figures worth of promotions for the Super Bowl LIV host committee.
The Pro: Luke Freeman, President/Founder, Wizard Creations (asi/362568)Client: Miami Super Bowl Host CommitteeJob: Produce a variety of promotional product collateral for different initiatives tied to Super Bowl LIVDollar Size: Six figuresProduct Scope: More than 100,000 items
Twelve years ago, Luke Freeman sat in the stands at Super Bowl XLI at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, FL. Originally from Chicago, the Miami-area transplant watched as his beloved Chicago Bears fell to the Indianapolis Colts 29-17. While the loss stung, it didn’t detract from the incredible spectacle of the Super Bowl itself – the United States’ single most viewed annual event since 2006. The pageantry, the performances, the sense of being at the center of the world, the profusion of promo products – it had Freeman bursting with excitement. “One day honey,” he told his wife, who was with him at the game, “I’m going to do the merchandise for the Super Bowl.”
At the time, Freeman was only working promo as a side job, but the words nonetheless proved prophetic. For Super Bowl LIV, being held in Miami February 2, 2020, Freeman has been providing a spectrum of promo solutions for his client, the Miami Super Bowl Host Committee, and their partner sponsors. Here’s how he earned – and delivered on – the massive opportunity.
Sustainable branded straws were among the many products Wizard Creations produced to help promote Super Bowl LIV.
“From giveaways and signage, to uniforms and printed collateral, we’ve done projects in every major professional sports league and in collegiate sports over the last decade,” says Freeman. “The people who make the decisions for these teams know I’m going to deliver, and that’s why we’ve continued to grow our business with them.”
As fate had it, one of those executives landed the role of vice president of corporate sponsorships with the Miami Super Bowl Host Committee. Needing a reliable vendor for promo collateral, the VP judged Freeman to be the perfect partner based on both past experience and the dynamite ideas Wizard Creations brought to the table through the courting process. “Tons of competitors wanted in on this opportunity, but ultimately they knew they could trust me, that they’d get a fair price, good value and exciting solutions,” Freeman says. “That tipped the scales in our favor.”
Another initiative involved producing choice merch, sent via direct-mail package, for important influencers. The program was tiered into categories labeled silver, gold and platinum. “The bigger the influencer, the more impressive the package,” Freeman says. Silver-level influencers, including people like local market radio DJs and journalists, received items like a hat, T-shirt and bag. Platinum influencers included major celebrities; they received completely custom merch. For example, one hip-hop star known to have a predilection for trendy jumpsuits was, as of press time, due to receive a fully custom Super Bowl jumpsuit. Pictures of him in the suit were to be shared on social platforms – an outreach destined to generate buzz.
Wizard’s self-promotional Super Bowl-related lunchbox kit featured cool items including coasters, sunglasses, lip balm and a tumbler.
Freeman also used swag strategically to help promote the Super Bowl LIV Business Connect Program – a partnership between the National Football League (NFL) and the Miami Super Bowl Host Committee. The program aimed to provide diverse, qualified and certified South Florida area businesses opportunities to compete for special event-related contracts connected to the Super Bowl. Products from Wizard Creations were in abundance at events educating the community about the program. “There were different items at different events, everything from lip balm and sustainable straws to sunglasses,” says Freeman.
One more example: Wizard Creations supported a Pepsi-sponsored event that sought to build buzz among top marketing executives working in corporate divisions focused on the Hispanic community. For the event held at Telemundo headquarters, Freeman provided gift sets that promoted the Super Bowl and Wizard’s own services. The co-branded sets centered on a custom lunchbox that contained products such as coasters, which feature a graphic of the Miami skyline and the “LIVE IT MIAMI” tagline.
“Identifying the right partners is critical to the success of the host committee and our ability to execute at the highest of levels – and working with Luke Freeman and the Wizard Creations team has allowed us to deliver exceptional results to the NFL, our key stakeholders, and most importantly, prepare for the visitors coming to South Florida for Super Bowl LIV,” said Brian Bishop, vice president of partnerships and marketing for the Miami Super Bowl Host Committee. “Wizard’s commitment to quality products and innovative ideas has been second to none, and we are proud to partner with a respected South Florida-based company as we prepare to host the biggest sporting event in the nation.”
