The worst product names of CES

We'll never forget these product names from CES 2016, and that's not a good thing.

Sleep Number it

For when you can't think of a catchy name and just give up, but insist on using a lower case "i."

Gyenno

This one doesn't even need a bad joke. Just say it out loud.

Samsung Welt

Maybe Samsung was going for a rhyming thing here, but it's clear no one in product marketing knows what "welt" means. Either way, it's not a word that makes you think of something positive.

Healbe Gobe

When just one "Be" isn't enough. This fitness tracker won't heal you of anything and it won't go anywhere unless you move first. Also, when you say it out loud, it sounds like you have a head cold.

Ween

If I was in second grade I'd giggle if my teacher mentioned this thermostat in class. Wait...I'm giggling right now. I also wonder if a certain band has heard of this product.

Displ'ever

Hooray for unnecessary apos'trophes! Maybe it's a display...that lasts forever?

Casio Smart Outdoor Watch WSD-F10

I get it. It's a watch. You use it outdoors. It's Smart. An accurate name, yes, but also boring as heck.

Xcooter

The zippy foldable scooter that sounds like the guy who drove the tow truck on "Dukes of Hazzard."

Spün

The Spün smart utensil comes with interchangeable spoon and fork heads and an umlaut that's totally unnecessary.

Nikon KeyMission 360

It is a 360x360-degree video camera, but it has nothing do with keys or missions. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

FANCI

FANCI is a dashboard technology that analyzes your mood while driving. Sure, FANCI does stand for Face and body Analysis Natural Computer Interaction, but I keep thinking of cat food.

Sevenhugs' Smart Remote

You won't get one hug from this remote, let alone seven.
