GADGET SHOW-SMART TVS

LAS VEGAS â¿¿In living rooms of the not-so-distant future, couch potatoes will be waving, grabbing the air, pointing, swiping and tapping to make their TVs react. That's the vision of manufacturers who are showing off "smart TVs" at the International CES. The sets will recognize who's watching and will try to guess what viewers want to see. They'll respond to more natural speech and will connect with your smartphone in a single touch. But are consumers ready for a TV that watches them? By Ryan Nakashima
