8 Trends to Look for at CES 2014

Today the products are the star attraction at what's now the most important consumer electronics show in the world. Although a lot of us complain about having to go to Vegas to cover this event, the geek inside us wants the chance to play with the coolest tech gadgets on the market and be among the first to see products that will be out in the new year.

I also follow this show carefully as I often get to see trends in the works or developing and this helps give insight to what type of technology we will see in the marketplace in the relatively near future. Keep in mind that CES is specifically timed to show retailers the products that vendors plan to have in the market by the end of the second quarter, in time for the next year holiday season. With this in mind, here are the eight trends I see emerging during CES for 2014.

1. The car becomes a node in the Internet of things. 
2. 4K TVs and monitors will be cheaper.
3. Digital health moves to the forefront.
4. 2-in-1s take off. 
5. Curved televisions pull people in.
6. 3D printers revolutionize manufacturing.
7. Smart home and smart light bulbs come home.
8. Wearables continue trending.
