LAS VEGAS -- Though CES always lives up to its promise of delivering a huge showcase of new tech, many of the products on display never make it off the show floor and into retail stores. We call these products "vaporware," since after the masses leave Las Vegas, they tend to vaporize into the air like a puddle on a hot summer day. Fortunately, there is a selection of gadgets from the show that really will go on sale. Here's a few that we found this week.

Samsung Galaxy NotePro

Samsung's Galaxy NotePro runs on Android 4.4, but it has a glossy new user interface called Magazine UX. It should go on sale in the first quarter of this year.

Sony 4K Ultra Short Throw Projector

Sony is pledging that it will sell the 4K Ultra Short Throw Projector by the summer of this year. That's promising, but the thing will cost you "approximately $30,000 to $40,000."

Philips Screeneo HDP1590

The Philips Screeneo HDP1590 projects a 720p image, but it's set to ship sooner than Sony's model, and it's much cheaper ($1,799).

Samsung 85U9B bendable TV

Press a button on the remote control of the Samsung 85U9B and small servos behind the screen spring into action, bending the edges out into that soon-to-be-familiar curved shape. Though it looks like classic vaporware, it is set to go on sale this year. We're as surprised as you are.

iRobot Scooba 450

The $599 iRobot Scooba 450 hard-surface-washing robot claims to be able to get rid of up to 99.3 percent of the gunky build-up on your hard flooring surfaces -- that includes potentially harmful bacteria like E. coli and S. aureus. It's available now.

Tablo over-the-air DVR

The Tablo works a lot like Simple.TV, recording free over-the-air TV to an external hard drive, then streaming those shows over your home network to other devices, like an iPad or a Roku box. The two-tuner model will hit stores in February with the four-tuner following by July.

Acer Iconia A1-830

Available in the first quarter of 2014 for $149, the Acer Iconia A1-830 has an iPad-like 4:3 aspect ratio but an unimpressive 1,024x768 resolution.

Samsung's Chef Collection dishwasher

Instead of a revolving circle of jets, the Samsung DW80H9970 uses a linear wall of water which sweeps back and forth during the wash cycle. It could be out as early as this Monday.
