If you’re someone who keeps up with all the latest and greatest technology, attending CES is probably high on your list. This annual conference held every January in Las Vegas is when top tech companies reveal their newest innovations and give a glimpse into what we can expect to come that year.

What’s happening this year? Here are some of the show highlights so far:
- Sony announced a cloud-based TV service with live TV, DVR and video on demand. The service can be used on any Sony gadget and will allow for cross-channel search of video content. This was in addition to the announcement of PlayStation Now, which is their cloud gaming service for TVs, consoles and phones.
- Sony also announced that their Xperia Z1S smartphone will be available in the US on the T-Mobile network starting January 13th.

- Smart watches and other wearable tech are growing in popularity. LG showed off its LifeBand Touch which tracks activity and sleep and can also receive email and texts.
