3 Whiz-Bang Technologies You Need to Know About

The 2013 International CES was a treasure trove of ideas for investors. Rex Moore was in Las Vegas for the event, and spoke with economist Shawn DuBravac about the consumer electronics trends we'll continue to see throughout the next couple of years.

In this video, Shawn talks about the three technologies he saw on the exhibit floor that impressed him the most. The first is organic light-emitting diode television displays. The technology seems ready to take off and is good news for OLED maker Universal Display (NASDAQ: OLED  ) , which is showing some profitable quarters recently after years of red ink.

3-D printing is also making its mark, led by the duopoly of Stratasys (NASDAQ: SSYS  ) and 3D Systems (NYSE: DDD  ) . Both are still in the small-cap range, and at the forefront of a technology that is changing the way several industries do business.

Finally, sensors are appearing in every facet of our lives. Nike  (NYSE: NKE  )  is an early beneficiary in the exercise field. Its Fuel Band, for example, can track every movement you make, 24 hours a day. And would you believe a football helmet developed by Verizon (NYSE: VZ  ) ?

3D Systems is at the leading edge of a disruptive technological revolution, with the broadest portfolio of 3-D printers in the industry. However, 3D Systems' share price has risen even faster than its earnings, and today the company sports a dizzying valuation. To help investors decide whether the future of additive manufacturing is bright enough to justify the lofty price tag on the company's shares, The Motley Fool has compiled a premium research report on whether 3D Systems is a buy right now.
