What you missed at CE Week

It may have gotten overshadowed by all the hoopla surrounding Google I/O and its multitude of announcements last week, but there was another big tech event happening across the country. At the same time Google was wowing crowds in San Francisco with Android L previews and new smartwatches, CE Week was showcasing new gadgets in New York. In this video report, our colleagues at IDG News Service take a closer look at some of the more noteworthy products on display at CE Week.

That includes the Withings Activité, a health monitor and activity tracker with an analog display. (We profiled the Activité when it was announced last week.) Other highlights in the video include Piper’s home monitoring and appliance control technology and Sharp’s new line of Aquos 4K Ultra HD LED TVs. Piper’s app runs on iOS and Android devices and supports plug-in modules, wall switches, dimmers, motion sensors and open/close sensors through Z-Wave protocol created for the residential control market. As for the Sharp TVs, they’ll be available in both 60- and 70-inch screen sizes when they ship in September.

For additional CE Week coverage, we took a look at noteworthy wearable devices at the show and talked to the company behind the controversial GoBe calorie tracker.
