CES 2012, the world's biggest gadgets show has wrapped up, leaving the world's tech reporters exhausted and sobbing at the immensity of the event.

Some say the show's offerings mean 2012 is the year of the Ultrabook, others that 2012 is the year of the yawn in the tech world.

Every editor has their own top gadgets from CES 2012, with most lists including LG's amazing OLED TV, and a sexy new phone like the Sony Xperia S.

Very few tablets made the top tens, but Ultrabooks were ubiquitous on CES 2012 top picks, and are the Huffington Post UK's top gadget for 2012.

Engadget, the official media outlet for CES 2012, highlighted the crappest gadgets in their regular gadget column.

Most editors carefully curate the best gadgets that you must have, but these guys give you an insight into the dross we're all collectively saving you from.

CNET presented the official awards for CES 2012, and taking out the top spot was the 55 inch LG OLED TV. The People's Voice award went to Razer's Project Fiona concept gaming tablet, best smart phone was the Nokia Lumia 900, best camera went to Fujifilm X-Pro1.

Best PC went to the HP Spectre, the glass-covered laptop with an all-glass lid and palm rest. The top tablet was the Asus Memo 370T, and best home theatre was Simple.TV.

To keep the fatigued tech eds smiling and walking the miles and miles of conference halls, there were plenty of quirky gadgets too. A USB another name would smell as sweet, but add a novelty Darth Vader head and you're laughing (manically, with gadget exhaustion).
