New Delhi: Wearable tech is one of the big themes at this year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Panasonic showed off a prototype, wearable video camera using the new 4K, ultra-high definition video standard. Intel showed off its own wearable computing, including earbuds that monitor your heart rate and an internet-connected baby onesie that tracks a baby's sleep patterns.

Among other things, Sony showed off its $1,000, wraparound goggles that shut out the world around you and replace it with a video game screen, concert video or anything else you can see on the screen. The big video draw at CES was of course the 4K (which stands for 4,000 horizontal pixels) TV -- designed for extra-large formats, perhaps 60-inches and above.
Not surprisingly, the products themselves serve as the attraction at the CES. The Consumer Electronics Association expects 150,000 gadget-hounds to attend the show.

Let us take a look at some of the biggest product launches that happened at CES 2014:

Delving deeper into the wearable computing market, Sony unveiled the SmartBand, a waterproof wristband that tracks everything from daily physical activities and nightly sleep patterns to how much you've socialized with friends.  The sensor-packed band has no display and interacts wirelessly with an Android smartphone or tablet through an app called Lifelog. It keeps a daily record of activities and recommends actions for the future. SmartBand also informs its wearer of incoming calls and messages by vibrating. Users listening to music can use it to play, pause or skip tracks. Kunimasa Suzuki, executive vice president, Sony Corporation and president and chief executive officer of Sony Mobile Communications, unveils the new Sony Smartband and Core during the Sony news conference at the International Consumer Electronics Show.
