CES 2014 was jam-packed with all sorts of crazy stuff, but one of the many distinct themes at the show was the evolution of interfaces by way of virtual reality and touchless sensors. VR has been an unfulfilled pipe dream for too long, but when we start seeing concrete products that just might actually work, it’s hard for even the jaded among us to not get a little giddy.
Given, neither VR nor motion tracking are especially new in the world of computing, but a post-Kinect generation of consumer-friendly motion-sensing products is inching ever-closer to the mainstream. These trends stand to shift (or at least supplement) the finger-friendly direction gadgets have been on for the last couple of years, and may potentially interrupt the entrenched mouse-and-keyboard habits of a whole generation.
BIG Thanks to Seidio for sponsoring our #CESlive coverage at CES 2014!
CES 2014 has come to an end, as has our #CESlive coverage for the year. It was an amazing week (and a busy one to boot!), with 70 guests taking to our stage over four days.
One of our big sponsors for the year was Seidio, a company we were extremely excited to have come onboard. Like Mobile Nations, Seidio has been around since the beginning of the smartphone era, going back to 2002. Over the years they've always made a great selection of cases, charging docks and extended batteries for popular smartphones on all platforms.
Be sure to hit up the video above for a video walkthrough of Seidio's booth at CES 2014. Derek from Seidio walks us through some of the different products they had on display, including the new OBEX case which is tough and waterproof yet great for everyday use.

Ever take a road trip and have your iPhone or iPad die on you, or worse, die on one of your (suddenly undistracted) kids? It can be awful. And even if you've got a USB interface in your car's dashboard, chances are it's low-voltage.
People are keeping detailed digital records of what they're doing more than ever before - journaling, microblogging, taking photos. But there's a point where doing so can occupy so much of your time that you can't do much else. Narrative takes a different approach by offering a tiny clip-on camera that takes photos continuously throughout the day.
Crafted with rigid plextonium shell and impact resistant core, the EDGE PRO includes a co-molded 2-part sliding design that allows for convenient docking and charging. With a sleek, low-profile design the EDGE PRO protects your iPhone 5/5S in style and has several colors to choose from.
