Smart TVs are getting smarter. Panasonic's new smart TVs have personalized home screens for every member of the house, and media from a mobile device can be played on the TV via NFC. We're also seeing more televisions incorporate voice and body gesture commands.
There aren't many smartphones being shown off here at CES, since companies tend to save the good stuff for Mobile World Congress next month. However, Sony did show the water-resistant Xperia Z, which has a 5-inch screen, 13-megapixel camera, quad-core processor and NFC.
But the best part of CES is the gadgets. Trackdot can help keep track of lost luggage. Panasonic sends music through your cheekbones. And Lego's Mindstorms evolve into a new generation of programmable robots.
