The International Consumer Electronics Show is once again showing off the best and the most futuristic in the world of technology.

They also discuss the new in “wearable fitness tech”, including a headset which talks to the wearer to deliver motivational messages.

Thought wearable technology didn’t take off in 2014, it’s expected that it will prove extremely popular in 2015 following Apple’s announcement that they will be entering the market.

We also hear about BMW’s driverless cars, which lets passengers sit and face each other. while the car takes care of the journey. Gavin says the technology isn’t new, but there are practical problems to consider for how the UK would manage a mix of manually driven and driverless vehicles.

Finally, Gavin is most excited about a mobile phone charger which can charge a battery in the time it takes to boil a kettle.
