Duratouch Wristsense allows wearables to detect if the wearable is being worn or not. Going through the plastics, it allows to reliably know if the smartwatch or the sports band is being worn, which can then allow the device's software to turn off other sensors such as heartrate, tracking, when it's not being worn by the user.
Tokyo-based Aroma Bit showcases their odor imaging sensor technology, they claim to be able to make a unique sensor to analyze the subjective matter of smell, rather than simply to analyze the contents of the gas. The setup on display shows how a bottle opened nearby produces a digital odor signature on the screen. The sensor prototype is mounted on an SD card. The device learns about the signature of each smell it encounters, becoming smarter.
