Watch: Texas Instruments’ Unique Internet of Things Demo

Texas Instruments (NASDAQ: TXN  ) was one of the biggest players at the biggest consumer electronics show in the world: the 2014 International CES in Las Vegas. Events like this are great for investors, because they're able to actually see ideas and concepts in action.

At CES, Texas Instruments showed off dozens of products and applications. From automotive to home entertainment to the connected home, the company is looking for growth areas outside its traditional product lines.

I visited the Texas Instruments booth at CES, and chatted with Kent Novak, senior vice president of DLP Products at TI. So far in this series, he's guided me through the two reasons TI is big in the Internet of Things, and where the company is seeing growth in automotive.

In this video, Kent takes us through a short tour of Texas Instrument's most unique products and prototypes. These include a futuristic shoe display based on DLP technology that can turn any surface into an interactive info center, headphones that project movies directly into the user's eyes, and an ensemble of some "things" that make up the Internet of Things.

Speaking of Internet of Things, Apple's next smart device may shock you
Apple recently recruited a secret-development "dream team" to guarantee its newest smart device was kept hidden from the public for as long as possible. But the secret is out, and some early viewers are claiming its everyday impact could trump the iPod, iPhone, and the iPad. In fact, ABI Research predicts 485 million of this type of device will be sold per year. But one small company makes Apple's gadget possible. And its stock price has nearly unlimited room to run for early in-the-know investors. To be one of them, and see Apple's newest smart gizmo, just click here!
