After scouring the convention, trying out crazy cool gadgets and getting a glimpse at what our lives will look like over the next five years, we’re just about ready to say TTFN to CES 2016 — but not before recapping some of our favorite examples of innovation! While copter drones you canactually ride in are super cool, it’s not likely they’ll be a part of your day-to-day in the very near future (unless you’re Tony Stark?). When it comes to life-changing tech that you might actually soon be seeing everywhere, we spotted some clear winners. Here is some of THE COOLEST tech we witnessed at CES this year that’s about to change your (no, really, YOUR!) life.

6. ili Wearable Translator ($200): Now this is going to change the world. Japanese/American tech company Logbar showcased the first wearable translating device that doesn’t require Internet for use. Ideal for travelers, simply hold the button to record something and ili will translate what you said based off an extensive travel lexicon stored on the device. Right now the device only supports English, Chinese and Japanese, but the company plans on rolling out a second version that has French, Thai and Korean and a third version with Spanish, Italian and Arabic. Hear that, guys? It’s the sound of language barriers crashing down. The ili is currently available for pre-order and will launch sometime this year.
