Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) made news last week with the introduction of a "smart shirt" that monitors your heartbeat and communicates with any smartphone.

But that's just one more item in a growing line of products from Intel that can be classified in the hot "Internet of Things" category. From smart vending machines to heartbeat-monitoring headphones connected to the cloud, the company is helping power a number of new high-tech gadgets that will make our lives easier.

Our roving reporter Rex Moore was in Las Vegas this year for the big Consumer Electronics Show, and dropped by the Intel exhibit. He got a first-hand demonstration of some of the company's other IoT technology from Claudine Mangano – including those high-tech headphones.
