This week, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES International) will highlight the best technological innovations that will emerge in 2014. Held in Las Vegas, CES International features exhibitions, keynote speakers, awards, and more from some of the tech companies you’ll want to keep an eye on this year.
 
In preparation for CES, last week Mashable published an article called, “CES 2014: 5 Tech Trends to Watch.” From 4K TVs and wearable technology to biometrics and 3D printing, 2014 will be an exciting year for those of us drawn to innovative and useful technology.
 
Speaking of biometrics, you can probably guess that eye-tracking technologies are among the trends that are breaking out in every industry from consumer electronics to high-tech security. Smartphone and tablet manufacturers are scrambling to launch new devices that feature eye-tracking technology. Imagine being able to unlock your smartphone screen with your eyes. This ability would keep the massive amounts of personal data on our devices safe from strangers’ – and hackers’ – eyes.
 
Or, imagine being able to detect drivers’ attention. What if we could study how closely drivers pay attention to their surroundings and develop ways to help keep their eyes on the road? Eye-tracking technologies can do that, too, keeping us safer through driver awareness apps.
 
While some tech gadgets seem silly rather than seriously useful (take the solar bikini – yikes!), CES International is a great launching pad for many valuable technologies to be introduced into our lives. It will be interesting to see what’s in store this week in Las Vegas.
