We’re wading through the countless gadgets of CES 2015 to find you the most interesting and innovative. Here’s a look at what we’ve found so far:
The Smart Belt
This belt is bringing new meaning to “keeping your pants up.” It has a built-in display that doubles as a buckle, and can connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth. The buckle is touch-sensitive, so you can use it as a clock or—get this—a remote control for your phone. The company, Belty, also claims that it can track your waist size throughout the day and alert you when it starts to expand—just in case you need an extra push in the right direction on those New Year’s resolutions.
The Sesame Smart Lock
We know what you’re thinking: there are plenty of smart locks out there already (like the Kevo). So what makes this one different? The Sesame is a bit more flexible than other smart locks on the market—it can be installed over existing deadbolts without having to replace anything. Users have full access to their existing keys, but still get all the benefits of having a keyless lock (like watching live streams from their door
If you haven’t heard of the Consumer Electronics Show, or CES, it’s basically a tech convention that takes place in Las Vegas every year where tech companies like Samsung and LG gather to show off new gadgets. The event is massive; this year there were over 3,500 exhibitors showing off technology that ranged from smartwatches and drones to 3D printers and self-driving cars.
The entire event is overwhelming, so we sent our coolest guy in the office to check out all the fun stuff so you don’t have to. Here’s what he found:
1) WATCH THIS: LG G Watch R
2) EVERYTHING’S CONNECTED: Belkin WeMo
3) DIGITAL DREAMS: Intel Compute Stick
4) THE FUTURE IS NOW: Audi A7
5) NO DRIVER NEEDED: Mercedes-Benz F 015 Luxury In Motion Concept Car
6) SLEEP TIGHT: Sleep Number 360 Smart Bed
7) KNOW YOUR HEALTH: Samsung S Health 4.0 Platform
8) MOVE OVER DJI PHANTOM: Hexo+
The Consumer Electronics Show is here, and it’s chock-full of gadgets and gizmos. Here are eight that caught our eye.
1. LG’s Rollable TV: LG showed off its 18-inch rollable television prototype to kick off CES 2015 in Las Vegas. The OLED screen can be rolled up like paper and stored away when not in use. The concept is part of LG’s vision of an ideal “future home.” The South Korean electronics giant also showed off a few other futuristic products, including a mirror that doubles as a display for makeup tutorials and a robotic intelligent personal assistant named Hub Robot.
2. Samsung’s 105-inch curved 4K UHD TV — It may be enormous, but Samsung says this curved TV will “fit seamlessly” into your home. It features what Samsung calls “SudioMax,” which is essentially a curve in the back of the soundbar so the speakers are directed toward you instead of the ceiling or walls. It also features two woofers to provide more bass power; four additional speakers to provide surround sound; and a standby mode that allows you to turn on the TV with your voice even while it is powered down.

This flower pot is able to monitor the plant’s health in real time and send you alerts on your smartphone if it needs water, fertilizer, or if it’s being affected by other environmental factors.
3. LG 77-Inch Curved OLED TV
LG has created a 77-inch curved OLED TV that can be rolled up like a newspaper! The company said that this TV will not be available for purchase at least until 2017 because they’re still working on improving its 4K picture quality.
4. Panasonic 20-inch 4K Tablet
Panasonic unveiled its first ever Windows tablet with a 20-inch display and a huge 4K resolution. It weighs about 5 pounds and costs around $5,999. But hey, it’s only for professional photographers!
5. Withings Activite Pop Fitness Tracker
The new Withings fitness tracker looks like an analog watch but offers all the features of a fitness tracker including step counting, swimming tracking and sleep monitoring. The watch automatically syncs with your phone
Here are my top eight picks for the gadgets that are going to change our lives in 2015 and beyond.
This little device is a great solution to the problem of keeping track of your valuables while you’re traveling. Most travel insurance policies require you have receipts for every single item you plan on claiming, but losing these can be a disaster. The Tile Mate allows you to keep track of up to 10 different items at once by attaching each Tile Mate to an item with a loop that comes with it. You can track them through an app on your phone, which will show you where the object is on a map within 100 feet or less. You can also mark the item as “lost” if it’s missing, and if another Tile Mate user comes across it they will be able to anonymously alert you via the app where it is.
If you love taking photos with your phone but have trouble selecting just one to share on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, then this device might be perfect for you. The Prynt is a smartphone case that allows users to print out their photos directly from their iPhones as stickers in under 30 seconds.
The Prynt app also allows users to add filters to images before printing them and an augmented reality feature
