From connected glasses to health monitoring devices, FashionWare, a new lifestyle-focused exhibit at the 2014 International CES produced in partnership with Living in Digital Times, will showcase the latest innovations in wearable technology that mix fashion and function. 

The 2014 CES, produced by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) , is the world’s gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technologies, and will run from January 7-10, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“From jackets that adjust based on outside temperatures to solar-charging handbags and more, innovations in wearable technology are shaping the industry,” said Karen Chupka, senior vice president, International CES and corporate business strategy, CEA. “The FashionWare TechZone integrates style, function and technology to create a wow-factor, high-tech space at the 2014 CES.”

Leading FashionWare exhibitors at the 2014 CES include: Brother, CLO Virtual Fashion, Inc., FashionTEQ, and Velodyne.  The TechZone will be located in the Venetian Ballroom. This high-tech area will also host an invitation-only runway show on Thursday, January 9, 2014, featuring innovative products that are both functional and fashionable.  

Living in Digital Times will sponsor eight additional lifestyle-focused exhibit areas and events at the 2014 CES that include:

Kids@Play: This TechZone features new technologies that facilitate learning for the next generation of consumers. Kids@Play explores the way being digital today creates a smarter world tomorrow. (The Venetian, Level 2, Venetian Ballroom)

MommyTech: The “mommy” audience, a code name for families using a variety of high-tech mobile products, is the fastest, largest and most vocal group of technology adoptees.  In this area, you’ll see how a new generation of products is making homes smarter and safer, creating better entertainment, fostering safer driving experiences and more. (The Venetian, Level 2, Venetian Ballroom)

Silvers Summit:  There are about 78 million boomers in the US (450 million worldwide) born between 1946 and 1964 — and they're hitting their peak earning and spending. This area showcases the products and services that keep boomers engaged, entertained, connected and healthy. (LVCC, South Hall 2)
