Oh man, lots of super cool stuff coming out of CES, but this one in particular caught my attention. Samsung has created wearable exoskeletons, and they, like ... actually work!

Can't wait to strap on one of these bad boys when I get into my golden years and sprint around town.

We're still making progress on haptic gloves for VR. This glove actually fits around your entire hand and has built in motors that tense and flex so you feel like you're getting resistance while grabbing and touching things. So cool!
