Glimpsing at the technology of the future, here's five exciting concepts from CES 2014 we really want to own now.

The dust has settled on yet another Consumer Electronics Show where the Vegas tech show was dominated by gorgeous 4K TVs both curved and flat, yet more ways to build the ultimate connected home and the kind of wearable tech we actually wouldn't mind wrapping around the wrist.

CES is of course not just place to discover what will be big in 2014 as manufacturers dream up the technology that will shape our lives in the future. Whether it's driverless cars or mammoth 8KTVs, some of these innovative ideas are more likely to become reality than others.

From building your own smartphone to the kitchen of the future, we've picked the stunning concepts and designs from CES 2014 that we hope some day we will get to use.

I like the last one, can see great possibilities for helping people cook something new and make sure everything is ready when it should, prompting you when you need to do something.

This has to be the most ludicrus idea from Whirlpool yet! This even tops their not talked about Polara Fridge/Range. Look at the realestate that it consumes and there is only 2 puny induction elements. Don't know about you but if I purchase a cooking device it's purpose will be to actually cook NOT Twit or Face.

Guaranteed to be a top seller amongst the iTwit/iDiot (shiney, shiney, must have new shiney) crowd.

Actionable Steps

As a trained chef that last one kinda goes completely against one of my favourite things about cooking. I don't want my phone with the damn internet on showing me tons of info. I want to make a meal and go back to something more basic. Technology has no place in the kitchen unless it heats, blends or helps physically make the meal!

Isn't a touchscreen hob absolutely screaming for trouble?
