5 Simple CES Gizmos That Will Improve Your Life

Let’s face it, the increasing prevalence of technology has its pros and cons. While most of the recent breakthroughs are designed to make life easier, they also have a way of filling our lives with clutter, chaos, and confusion. However, by keeping things simple, some of the gizmos unveiled at this week’s CES 2016 offer increased convenience—with no discernible drawbacks. Here are five of the highlights.

Ili

Roughly the size of a jump drive, this wearable translator gets the job done with a single button. If it works well, Ili could prove to be the perfect marriage of convenience and simplicity.
