CNET News Video: At CES, more gadgets talk to each other

1:25 /

Imagine a day when all of your gadgets can talk to each other. Your phone will control your television and your computer can run your gaming device. At the annual Consumer Electronics Show going on now in Las Vegas, that vision is becoming more of a reality. CNET's Kara Tsuboi reports

-This is no ordinary gaming device. -Tricky combination. -NVIDIA's Project Shield is smarter than that because it can talk to your computer. -Any PC game, I already owned. As long as it's got good controller support, I'll be able to stream it on my home network and play it on this device. -Video game companies generally don't debut products at the Consumer Electronic Show but thanks to this connectivity and its ability to stream games from Android phone, it's generating a lot of buzz. -Well, this is a big moment in terms of mobile games. The fact that it can play those PC games and be able to use the physical controls is pretty exciting. -Massive combination. -One big trend on the show floor is gadgets that can talk to each other. Forget reaching for the TV remote, grab your tablet instead. -One of the big TV trends this year we've seen this year is improvements in smart TV technology. For example, can recognize what you want to watch before you want to watch it and suggest shows, kind of a recommendation engine. -So you have CSI on the TV, you don't want to interrupt that. What kind of content are we getting access to? Photos? Videos? -Photos and videos that you have stored on a thumb drive plugged into the TV set. Typically, you can browse those applications. Instead of doing it on the TV screen, you can browse them here and launch them here when you're ready. -But ready or not, your tech web just got a whole lot stronger. In Las Vegas, I'm Kara Tsuboi, cnet.com for CBS News.
