The goal is for the prototype to record 360-degree video footage in Ultra HD, or 4K, and weigh under 350 grams. The group hasn't quite reached those targets, but it has two more months to develop the device. This one won't be for sale.

The Ahead gadget sticks to any helmet and lets you listen to music, take and make phone calls and hear notifications read aloud.

The group developed the idea as a way to make it safer to take calls or listen to music when you're biking or doing anything that requires a helmet.

Ahead uses technology that projects sound into the helmet but minimizes the sound traveling outside, so everyone around you doesn't hear your music or conversations.

The Entrim 4D+ headphones make you feel motion while wearing a virtual-reality headset. Instead of just watching a race car making tight turns, you'll actually feel the car moving. The headphones work by sending an electrical signal to the nerve of your ear, which regulates balance and motion. IT tricks your brain into thinking you're moving.

The ItsyWatch app for the Samsung Gear S2 makes it fun for kids to do things like exercise and brush their teeth.

The ItsyWatch app is almost like the old Tamagotchi virtual pet, but instead of a pet, the character is a little cartoon child that represents the kid using the app. As the child achieves more things -- like toothbrushing, exercising and eating healthy -- the character grows. The app can even work sort of like a walkie talkie.

The LiCON app lets you control your various smart devices using your smartphone camera. You take a photo of something like an Internet-connected lamp, and the app brings up settings that let you turn it on or off or change to a preprogrammed setting like "movie time."

You can also use the camera to launch product-specific apps by taking a photo of the device.
