IGN's Best of CES 2014 Awards

"After several years of subdued announcements, last week's annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) heralded the arrival of numerous exciting new products and platforms. Valve and its partners unveiled the first wave of consumer-grade Steam Machines, Samsung showed off the world's first bending OLED 4K Ultra HD TV, and Sony debuted its much anticipated games streaming service, PlayStation Now. But which stood out amidst the flood of new products and technologies? Here our picks for the Best of CES 2014."

Wearable computers generated a lot of buzz at CES, as did bendable screens, Android-powered desktops and the alliance between Google and several automakers to integrate Android with car technology. I'd say wearables and the integration of Android into autos will have an impact this year and beyond.

The two things from CES that we will see in our daily lives soon are Android/iOS integration in vehicles and (probably) the Oculus Rift. With systems such as GM’s On-Star having been around for years now, it is a logical progression to move toward tighter integration of vehicles with the rest of our digital lives. The Oculus Rift will probably never be ubiquitous, but as it marches slowly towards production, I think there will be many, many people excited to try out a VR experience. It’s as close as we are likely to get to a holodeck for a long time to come.
