LAS VEGAS -- The Consumer Electronics Show (or CES, to you) for 2013 has come and gone; and despite increased Internet belly-aching that the goliath tech convention has become irrelevant or less of a tastemaker than in years past, there were still a great number of eye-popping, jaw-dropping, innovative, exciting gadgets on display here in Las Vegas.

From a computerized fork that buzzes and illuminates when you're eating too quickly, to a small gizmo that can track the location of your lost luggage, to a cheap-o handheld gaming console that could change the future of video games, CES 2013 was both a fruitful display of ingenuity and a sneak peek at what the future of technology holds for both geeks and non-geeks alike. We've picked out 17 gadgets below, which are the most important, the coolest, the most buzzed-about or simply our favorite from the show floor. Dive in, and you just might find your next gotta-have-it device.
