SHOES that help the wearer feel the virtual reality world they’re walking in and a smart hairbrush that can detect hair damage are among the early product highlights at CES.

The annual Las Vegas technology showcase, which started yesterday, draws companies and products from around the world to its convention centre to showcase their creations.

Among the hi- tech wonders on show will be Taclim VR shoes, which work in sync with virtual reality headsets and a Hypersuit which gives the wearer the impression they have wings or can fly like a superhero.
