First off we have the original research paper preview. This year seems to be the year of the neural network - check out the wolf at around 3:00

If you have a little, OK a lot, of time then the set of 30-second presentations of the research papers is worth the effort, but given the sheer number of them it is nearly 2 hours long:

The full research presentations are fun, but often the poster presentations are at just the right level to make you ask more questions. Here are some of this year's:

The emerging technologies section is always worth a look and this year the technology that I, and all glasses wearers presumably, cannot wait to emerge is the gaze contingent eyeglasses - put simply they focus on what you are looking at. Where can I give them the money? 

I'm not so sure about the weird taste simulator and the additional arm. These might take a bit longer to emerge.

Don't you just wish you were there?
