The International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is a massive event, and I’m not professionally interested in about 97% of it – the gizmos, the car stuff, the blinky stuff, the chipsets, the OEMs ….

But sometimes I’m personally interested in some of the goodies just for fun. Here are a few items I stumbled across pre-show.

Who knows, maybe one of them will walk away with my “Best Thing” nod, like the MakerBot 3D Printer I coveted at CES 2011.

Note that not all of these companies have booths at CES. Some have meeting rooms; others can be found in the CES Innovations 2013 showcase.

Check out the slideshow below featuring these eight products:

Monster LLC: Find My Stuff
Variable Technologies: NODE
piQx Imaging: XCanex
Ecovacs Robotics: Winbot 7
Moneual: Touch Table PC
Standzout: Wallmate
Liquid Image: Apex HD +
Motorola: HC1 Headset Computer
