Every year the world鈥檚 premier tech companies, tech industry insiders and lovers of all things tech (if this is you, you should check out our tech gift guide for last minute holiday ideas!) congregate out in the deserts of Nevada to geek out over all the exciting products and innovations of the upcoming year. Yes, we鈥檙e talking about the Consumer Electronics Show, or better known as CES 鈥 and trust us when we say there鈥檚 something for everyone at CES, including the little ones. You see all kinds of crazy things at CES that you never imagined possible, such as a classic聽children鈥檚 toy with some serious upgrades that will have Ernie from聽Sesame Street聽tossing out his old friend.

Meet Edwin the Duck, tech startup pi lab鈥檚聽$100 rubber duckie who made聽his debut at CES 2016 in Las Vegas this year. But trust us when we say Edwin is聽not聽your average rubber duck. Yes, he comes with a聽hefty pricetag, but Edwin is one multi-tasking duckie jam packed with smart gadget features.

Using trademarked 鈥淪QUACK鈥 technology, Edwin will actually sync up to your tablet via Bluetooth so your kiddo can play story-telling games and interact with a cartoon Edwin. At night, you can even set Edwin to play a lullaby to lull your child聽to sleep. Plus, Edwin does double duty as a night light. And the answer to your biggest question is yes, the rubber duckie聽is fully waterproof so he can fulfill his basic duties as a bath toy.

You can purchase him right now at the Apple Store, but we鈥檙e also got hands on with him at CES this year. Spoiler alert: He鈥檚 definitely bigger than your average rubber ducky and despite packing some serious tech, he was surprisingly lightweight.
