The best of CES 2016 | DT Daily

As CES 2016 winds down, we take a look back at the best of the best.

The Chevy Bolt won’t hit 60mph in 3.1 seconds, but it will move you 200 miles without a single drop of gasoline, and recharges so quickly, you can hit 80 percent of capacity in only an hour. Oh, and it will do it all for $30,000. Inside, a host of technological amenities await, centered around a 10.2-inch touchscreen that reclines back at a comfy-to-touch 45 degrees. It also boasts some impressive features normally found in luxury cars like surround vision, which stitches together multiple camera views to help you park.

Faraday Future certainly brought forth the most forward thinking idea, exemplified by its FFZERO1 Concept. The almost alien-like supercar concept would be capable of 1,000 horsepower if it were produced, with the ability to leap to speeds beyond 200 mph. Off the line, it would take under three seconds to spring from 0 to 60.

The Samsung 4-Door Flex Family Hub refrigerator isn’t the first fridge with a touchscreen. It isn’t even the first Samsung fridge with a touchscreen. But the 21.5-inch display that’s built into the appliance is more useful than its predecessors. The sheer size of the display means that when you mirror it with your Samsung TV, one of the fridge’s capabilities, you can continue to binge watch Making a Murderer, still make a snack, and not have to squint at the door to see what’s going on. You can also find recipes, use a browser, check the weather, play music, order groceries, and display your family photos.

At a time when almost every Android Wear smartwatch sports the exact same spec sheet and feature set, Casio is breaking the mold entirely. The Casio Smart Outdoor Watch WSD-F10 is packed with unique features that are sure to appeal to woodsy types. It’s water-resistant to 50 meters, meets the U.S. military’s MSL-STD-810 standard, sports a pressure sensor, compass, and accelerometer. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have a GPS, so it relies on your phone for that.
