Curved TVs, mini drones among hottest items at CES

Posted: Updated:

While the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) hosts thousands of manufacturers which demonstrate new and innovative products, a few gadgets and gizmos always stand out from the pack.

This year's show has the largest selection of gadgets yet.

"We have over 2 million feet of exhibit space, and we're seeing everything from wearables to ultra HD to 3-D printing," said Grace Alice with the Consumer Electronics Association.

While all of those items are popular, the most coveted item may be the curved HD television. Some of them come with a $15,000 price tag.

While electronics manufacturer LG makes those curved TVs, company representatives said something much smaller is generating significant buzz as well.

The LG Lifeband Touch is part of the wearable technology wave.

"What it [does] is track all your daily fitness activities," LG representative James Garrett said.

The device connects with your smartphone and other devices.

"It'll actually vibrate when you have a phone call or a text message. On top of that, you can even control your music. You can pause, play, skip songs, adjust the sound," Garrett said.

LG is still determining the price, but you can expect to see the Lifeband Touch on store shelves this spring. It's not the only item at CES that syncs with your phone.

Manufacturer Parrot unveiled mini drones which you can operate with a smartphone.

"You can pilot it with your smartphone, with your Bluetooth smart connection," said Parrot project manager Yoni Banitar.

The drones come equipped with tiny cameras.

"[You] can take snapshots of the ground with it," Banitar said.

You might have heard about 3-D printers, which use hot plastic to make all sorts of items. At CES, you'll find a printer that uses chocolate. The asking price is $5,000.
