A 3D sound home cinema processor. A wearable device that uses low level light therapy to treat genetic hair loss. A baby monitor you can snap onto your child’s clothing.
Oh my. If you're a high-tech gadget freak and live close to New York City, then there's likely no better place for you than CE Week, the city's largest technology show.
Those were just a few of the devices displayed by Auro Technologies, Apira Science and Monodevices, respectively.
"Think Fashion Week meets technology," the promoters claim. About 3,000 attendees were expected to attend the two-day event (calling it CE Week is a bit of a stretch), which ends today.
Is music more your thing? JLab Audio was showing off the Epic Bluetooth Earbuds, which it claims to have 60 percent more battery capacity than competitive products.
Or fitness maybe? First Alert's Onelink Watch, besides tracking fitness and health goals also automatically detects activity and monitors the heart rate with no chest strap.
So Many New Toys
In fact the list of gadgets at the show are just about as long as the list of hobbies and interests.
Photographer? Olloclip's 4-in-1 Photo Lens debuted completely redesigned for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
Pioneer's AVIC-8100NEX, an in-dash navigation receiver and singlecue, a standalone device that connects and controls media and smart home devices using gestures rounds out the sample of gadgets on display.
Besides the products, there were conference sessions and events.
Yesterday, there was a Fashionware live runway show for wearable tech products (you knew that was inevitable) that was moderated by Chris March, who was a contestant on season four of Bravo's Project Runway.
Sessions included Women in CE, Your Next TV, Your Next Audio and Connected Car. Panel discussions ranged from robots to health and fitness.
Somehow, though, describing the show via the written word seems downright anachronistic. Without further ado let's go read some tweets.

And speaking of eyewear …
Remember these guys?

3D printing was big during the show. Here's a printed latte, for instance.
