What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas -- and the same can be said of some products unveiled at the world's biggest tech show. What we see and report on at CES doesn't always lead to something we can buy, and that's doubly true of all the crowdfunded products that have stolen the show in recent years. So, how about our Best Of CES award winners? Glorious, glamorous concepts of the future aside, how many are still happening? Did any of our highlights from last year actually make it into stores? The conclusion is, well, mixed. And it's not just crowdfunded startups that failed to deliver.

Mat once failed an audition to be the Milkybar Kid, an advert creation that pushed white chocolate on gluttonous British children. Two decades later, having repressed that early rejection, he moved to Japan, learned the language, earned his black belt in Judo and returned to UK, and soon joined Engadget's European team. After a few years leading Engadget's coverage from Japan, reporting on high-tech toilets and robot restaurants as Senior Editor, he now heads up our UK bureau in London.
