CES, the giant, annual Consumer Electronics Show that’s wrapping up in Las Vegas, is full of bizarre technology. From customer-service robots and gesture-controlled drones to massage chairs that cost more than a car, CES is a smorgasbord of stuff that will make you feel a little gross inside (or, alternatively, super pumped to get your hands on a pair of new headphones!). As a first-time attendee, I spent a few hours on the showroom floor l...
