ICYMI: Aging Exoskeleton Suit, the Biometric Bed and More

Today on In Case You Missed It: Applied Minds built an exoskeleton suit for insurance company Genworth and took it on the road to CES to give conference goers a dose of empathy for the elderly. The suit reenacts the physical ailments people often suffer as they age, from vision loss to hearing problems.

Bed company Sleep Number is showcasing the IT Bed, which is an app-connected bed that can track your biometrics while you sleep and sync that information with other apps. For $1000, it beats the heck out of the all the Kickstarter sleep tracking pads and gizmos we've covered on this show, so color us impressed. Plus it can still adjust each side's level of firmness, just like a Sleep Number should.

Finally, First Response brought a brand new bluetooth-connected pregnancy test to CES this year, along with a very detailed app to walk a user through how to use the test properly.
