CES 2016 highlights: Make your TV disappear

It's the beginning of the new year, which means that CES 2016 is underway

The world's innovators have gathered in Las Vegas once again for the premiere technology expo.

This year, 3,600 presenters are exhibiting gadgets, software, services and innovations that they believe will take off in a big way in 2016.

Like every CES, there will be a mix of amazing, intriguing and downright ridiculous technology.

Transparent TV technology has been around for a few years, but Panasonic's prototype caught our attention this year because of the way it can fit into your decor.

The wood frame around the TV shoots micro LEDs onto the glass when in use. When the screen is off, the glass becomes transparent.

TVs take up a lot of wall space, so it would make sense to have a display that could disappear when you're not using one.

Sphero's BB-8 Star Wars toy has been on the market for a few months, but until now you could only control it with a smartphone or tablet.

Now you can control it with the force. Well, with gestures that are picked up by a wearable wrist band that connects wirelessly to the robotic toy.
Wearing Sphero's Force Band, which will go on sale in the fall, you can send the Droid moving in a particular direction with a wave of your hand.

Using its new Real Sense camera technology, Intel demonstrated a drone that automatically avoids obstacles in its flight path.

The drone can adjust to an obstacle in nine milliseconds -- faster than your reflexes could signal the drone to move.

With airlines frequently complaining about drone strikes, equipping drones with Real Sense technology could save a lot of headaches -- for airplane and drone pilots alike.
