TVs that rise out of a credenza. Robot legs that help you walk. A wand that "erases" skin blemishes. A tasty burger with no meat -- and, of course, a smart toilet. We saw all that and more in Las Vegas last week as CES 2019 -- the world's biggest technology show -- took over the city.

CNET spent a full week covering the show from top to bottom, and we asked a few of the dozens of staffers we had on-site to summarize the key trends. Their answers are below -- and they provide an executive summary of what you can expect from the tech world in 2019 and beyond.
