Wemo Mini Smart Plug

Not all smart plugs are created equal. The Wemo Mini Smart Plug rises above the rest with a thoughtful design and plus compatibility. It works with Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple HomeKit, among other services, and has clever features like an "Away Mode" that randomly turns connected lamps on and off — so any would-be burglars won't be sitting in their vans, pointing at your house precisely the minute your lights come on. In addition, its slender design puts the power button in plain sight and doesn't block the outlet above/below it, which has the added benefit of letting you use two in a single spot.



Backdrop Paint


There are few things more boring than neutral walls. Backdrop makes it easy to give your abode a new look. Instead of an overwhelming assortment of hues, they offer 50 curated colors for you to choose from, in standard or semi-gloss finish. Their samples are large 12-inch squares that stick on your wall, so you don't need any tools until you decide on a color, and once you're ready, they also sell all the essentials you need, so you don't have to make any visits to the dimly lit aisles of your local big box hardware store.



LG HomeBrew Beer Machine

Freshly brewed beer tastes great but nailing the brewing process is tough. The LG HomeBrew Beer Machine makes it easy. This countertop gadget uses single-use capsules containing malt, yeast, hop oil and flavoring and an optimized fermentation algorithm to let you brew beer with a single button press, creating up to five liters of suds every two weeks. Offered in the initial launch are a hoppy American IPA, American Pale Ale, full-bodied English Stout, Belgian-style Witbier, and Czech Pilsner. The machine will be on display at CES 2019, a perfect spot for finding thirsty test subjects.
