The International CES is the global gathering place for all who thrive on the business of innovation. This year's show was an energizing display of where the future is headed, bringing to life cool new products from every industry that touches technology. One-third of the world's population interacted with CES in some way last week. From curved and flexible Ultra HD TVs and next generation smart phones to drones, robots, sensors, the Internet of Everything, Hi-Res audio, connected cars and 3D printers, it seems like the only thing missing from the 2014 CES was a time-travel machine.

Top manufacturers of mobile phones did not turn up with latest and innovative smartphones at this year's CES.

Japanese electronics giant Panasonic is aiming to go one better with its next-generation line of televisions by offering a more personalised service than its competitors. The company's Life+Screen AX800 4K TV achieves this via a Kinect-style facial recognition system that will populate an 'info bar' at the bottom of the screen with content tailored for the individual, such as news and weather updates. The sets also feature advanced voice recognition technology, and include a new myStream function that should help organise favourite channels better. The company will offer the AX800 in 58, 65 and 85-inch variations later this year.
Korean electronics giant Samsung announced a wealth of TV products at this year's show including a trio of curved UHD TV models that make up its new U9000 series. The U9000 series comes in 55, 65 and 78-inch size options, and combines cutting-edge 4K visuals with curved display technology to offer a wider field of vision, as well as a balanced and uniform viewing distance across the entire screen. The company has confirmed plans to launch the sets in the second quarter of 2014, but pricing is yet to be announced.
