The most exciting technology, gadgets and gear

Best of IFA 2023

At IFA 2023, we saw a variety of new technologies that will soon be in your hands and in your homes. From impressive PC gaming gear and projectors to accessories, smart lawn mowers and blockbuster TVs. Newsweek has selected our favorite new gadgets from a wide range of gadgets and gear.

It’s a global showcase, and while many of our favorite pieces gather in the United States, only a few are shown around the world. We expect to see this technology on store shelves in the coming weeks and months. To celebrate manufacturers exploring new form factors, we’re awarding one prototype wallet phone.

Here are 15 products that caught our attention at IFA 2023. As the exhibition in Berlin concludes, these are the products we are most looking forward to trying.
