Great Gadgets1 of 9
By Andie Huber
The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) never disappoints (see our round-up from last year here) and the 2014 event was no exception. Here are our favorite finds from the world of electronics, gadgetry and gizmos coming soon to a home near you.
Sunny Days2 of 9
Netatmo has taken the guesswork out of whether you are getting too much sun. The June, a pretty bracelet, measures daily sun exposure and will synch to your phone—letting you know how much sun you've received, helping you limit your exposure to dangerous UV rays and avoid sun damage.
Instant Gratification3 of 9
The 3D printer by 3D Systems is taking on the foodie world with ChefJet and ChefJet Pro—new appliances that will allow consumers and professional confectioners to create edible treats with sugar or milk chocolate. Sweet!
Deep Sleep4 of 9
Have you invested in a new mattress, sheets and pillows and still aren't getting the rest you need? Time to try out Withing's Aura—a smart sleep system that monitors your sleeping habits, including noise, light and temperature. It will then create a custom program to help you get the best sleep you can.
Slow Cooker5 of 9
Belkin's WeMo iOS app—a wireless control that lets you turn home items, like lights and TVs, on and off remotely—has moved into the small appliances market. Their first product? The Crock-Pot Smart Slow Cooker—letting you adjust the temperature and timers remotely—so those meatballs will be perfect by the time you get home.
Dog Talk6 of 9
With Voyce's technology-based collar, you can now track your dog's well-being—from his heart rate and rest patterns to his activity level and how many calories he's burned—helpful if you are trying to get your best friend to lose some weight.
The Mother Load7 of 9
Sen.se has created a tracking system called Mother that allows you to adapt each of its four sensors to your needs. From monitoring your and your kids' activities to reminding you when to take your medicine, each device can send alerts to your phone. If your needs change, you can simply change the sensor.
Knock Knock8 of 9
The Goji lock is an electronic lock system that you can manage through your phone. Have out-of-town visitors coming? You no longer have to make various sets of keys, hide keys or coordinate with their arrival—simply give your guests access via text or email. You'll receive an update when they enter your home.
Retro Refrigeration9 of 9
Whirlpool has made a refrigerator exciting by turning the ubiquitous kitchen item on its side and transforming it into a piece of furniture that can hold drinks and snacks. While still a concept piece, we're hoping this makes it to market by the next season of Mad Men.
