Of all the news you weren't expecting to hear from the International Consumer Electronics Show that's underway in Las Vegas, this one is probably high on your list. We've been telling you about new tech that companies are debuting there.

Those include flexible TVs that roll up into tubes, smart cars, and 360-degree cameras, to name a few. That's the types of new tech you expect to see at CES, or hear about. (Keep reading for an exclusive Komando.com Report about smart cars at CES.)

However, an Internet-connected pregnancy test isn't something you'd expect to hear about. But the pregnancy test, First Response, is previewing its new Internet-connected test, First Response Pregnancy PRO Digital Pregnancy Test & App Access, at CES. It'll hit store shelves this spring for a suggested retail price of $15 to $22.

PRO is a fairly typical looking pregnancy test stick. To find out if you're pregnant, you urinate onto its tip, as you normally would.

But, you'll start to notice some big changes long before that. As soon as you unwrap it, the First Response Pregnancy PRO comes alive with a little computer screen on it, like those on thermometers.
