CES: The cool, the quirky, the just plain wrong

Gadgets
-At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, products here are often cool, occasionally quirky, but always loaded with tech. Like this armband that lets you control your computer or tablet with gestures. Myo uses sensors to detect the electrical activity generated when your brain tells your muscles to move. -And then all those signals are sent into that little processor and here that's been trained using machine learning to recognize which different muscles correspond to different gestures. -Turn up tunes with the twist of your wrist or fire shots in a first person shooter game by making a fist. Charging devices can be a chore. Intel has created an easier way to power up, throw your gadgets in this bowl and they'll start charging wirelessly, thanks to magnetic resonance technology. Panasonic turns its booth into a beauty salon to highlight the nano-e dryer, which claims to moisturize as it dries by creating tiny particles. -There for their penetrating your hair shaft and your hair cuticle lock in that moisture so your hair is much shinier. -Whether you're camping or cooking in the kitchen, there is an iPad holder made specifically for any and every location and I do mean every location. They're also available for every age. CTA's Digital iPotty lets your toddler play on their tablet while they tinkle. Appliances were a hot CES trend, Dacor cooked up a Smart stove. This discovery IQ range sports a built-in android tablet so you can control the oven remotely or check Facebook as you chef it up. Finally, Kolibree's connected toothbrush uses sensors to analyze how long and thoroughly you brush, and sends that info to a mobile app. Talk about a dentist dream. In Las Vegas, I'm Sumi Das, and I am RoboThespian of the IEEE booth with CNET for CBS News.
