If there was a belle of the proverbial ball at CES 2014, the Oculus Rift might actually be it.

It makes sense, especially considering the increased sophistication of motion technology and Oculus VR’s stated goals of total immersion. But the real magic moment, I believe, will come when the company can greatly reduce latency.
