The JINS MEME eyeglass above aims to provide vision not only for the outside world, but vision for how you’re looking on the inside too. It measures how you’re feeling, how tired you are, and whether or not you’re sleepy. Basically, the JINS MEME eyeglass reads the tiny differences in electrical potentials (Electro Oculography) generated by the movement of the eyes, making it highly sensitive to changes in the mind and body that the wearer might not even notice. And when the JINS MEME eyeglass detects that you’re experiencing fatigue, consider completing the package with a smart bed from Sleep Number, especially when they’ve just added a new smart bed for kids that adjusts as they grow during CES this year.

The FITGuard is a mouthguard that can measure the force of an impact and illuminate LEDs to visually display the force from the impact.  These colour-coded LEDs provide an instant visual indication to the coaches and officials whether a player needs to come off the field to be properly evaluated. Or if you aren’t the sporty sort because you’re a stay-home mom/dad taking care of the baby, here’s one that might interest you – the Blue Maestro’s Pacif-i that monitors your child’s body temperature and transmits the data using Bluetooth to an Android or iOS device.

Well, we’ve featured this before but we absolutely love the Withings Activite so here we are again if you still haven’t heard of it after all that hype it’s created at CES 2015. Crafted in Le Locle, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Switzerland that is famous for watchmaking, the Withings Activité is probably the fitness tracker that wins “Best Design” hands-down. And that’s perhaps why it comes with a higher price tag of $450. Not only does it come with Swiss Made details such as a scratch-proof domed sapphire glass, 5 ATM water-resistant case, as well as Barenia leather from Haas Tanneries (the supplier of the finest French Haute Couture houses), the Withings Activité is also an activity tracker and sleep monitoring device. Simply beautiful!

Remember those times when you wished you could loosen your belt after a buffet meal without having to excuse yourself to the toilet? Well, I guess the people at Emotia have long wanted to solve this problem. Their latest Belty prototype is not only capable of tightening and loosening itself to keep users comfortable, it can also be set to vibrate when users have been sedentary for too long. In addition, and perhaps more importantly, it can also help you keep track of your changing waist measurement, which can be a good indicator of your risk of developing weight-related conditions.
