Along side self-driving cars and countless fitness wristbands, these truly unique high-tech items piqued our interest at the 2014 Consumer Electronic Show.
- Epson Moverio BT-200 are smart glasses that will give Google Glass a run for its money. They can even be customized to your prescription.
- Intel Smart Earbuds don’t just provide full-stereo audio but track your biometric and fitness information as well, including heart rate, calories burned and distance–a perfect companion for your workout!
- Samsung is no longer alone in the smart watch category, as Intel rolled out one too, but the star of the smart watch show was Peeble Steel.
- The ZTE Projector doubles as a hot spot. So long, stack of wifi boxes.
- Sony’s 4k Ultra Short Throw Projector has a sleek design that rests on the floor and displays top notch images onto your blank wall. (Not to mention, it has optional 3D glasses.)
- Canon’s PowerShoot N100 camera sports a rear lens that can superimpose the photographer onto the photo and its story highlights mode creates a highlights reel merging photos and video from the photographer’s perspective.
- The LG G Flex is the world’s first flexible smart phone.
- Morphie SpacePack is an iPhone case that packs extra battery and… wait for it… data storage up to 32GB!
