LAS VEGAS -- The 2014 International CES is the launch pad for some of the year's biggest tech. While the newest televisions and laptops often grab the most headlines, the show is also the home to some of the oddest tech on the planet.

One of the big trends at this year's CES is "The Internet of Things." We found some smart devices that are, well, just kind of out there. Here are a few of our favorites:

'Mother' Monitoring System
A new gadget by a company called Sen.se looks to replace a nagging mom with a digital one. Appropriately called Mother, the gadget looks like a tiny ghost mom and serves as a hub for several tiny sensors you can put on everything from your coffee maker to your front door to monitor literally anything you can imagine.

Some suggested uses from Sen.se: reminding you to take your medication, monitoring how much espresso you drink or lowering the temperature on your thermostat when it detects no one is at home. Just remember, no backtalking.

OhMiBod's Connected Underwear
OhMiBod launched a new pair of underwear that are controlled by a smartphone. The connected panties come with -- get this -- a built-in vibrator that's controlled via a smartphone app connected to the underwear via Bluetooth. That's not all. The company is working on a way for the underwear to ultimately be controlled remotely by a partner as well.

Kind of weird, right? Naughty, for sure.

Belkin's App Controlled Crock-Pot
People who cook with Crock-Pots are likely used to loading up their pot in the morning and coming home to a fully-cooked dinner. But what happens when you get stuck in traffic, or have a last-minute meeting comes up? Belkin's internet-connected Crock-Pot allows you to adjust the temperature and cook time for your Crock-Pot remotely using your mobile phone. The $99 kitchen gadget is expected to be released later this year.

Kolibree's Connected Electric Toothbrush
Are you brushing your teeth long enough? Getting even the hard-to-reach places? Kolibree's Connected Electric Toothbrush pays attention to how you brush, and lets you know if you haven't spent enough time brushing, or if you haven't paid enough attention to some of your chompers.
