CES 2014: Smart toothbrushes, full-body gaming, and gadgets to watch you sleep
The annual electronics fair has kicked off once again with all the oddities a geek could wish for; see below for pictures of some of the best gadgets so far
The Consumer Electronics Fair (CES) is probably the biggest event in the technology calendar, giving companies from around the world the chance to show off their latest wares to (sometimes) eager and (sometimes) bored journalists.
Perhaps because the larger companies tend to organise their own events to announce new products, CES has become the domain of the hustlers and the dreamers, with this year’s proceedings stuffed full of small companies and never-before-seen gadgets.
