The Great CES Swindle: Five Years of Flaunting and Failing 5

2008: The Year the Other Shoe Dropped As the beginnings of the sub-prime mortgage disaster were becoming apparent, and as the U.S. economy began to hiccup before it nose-dived later that year, CES's usual celebration of pricey high-end gear was decidedly out of step with the national mood. Intel showcased WiMAX by hosting wireless service from a truck, and LG debuted a purported WiMAX phon...

CES Answers 'What Product Will You Actually Buy?'

CES whips journalists, exhibitors, and gadget fans into a frenzy every January, and it's easy to lose sight of the near future with all the new product announcements. Yes, in only a couple weeks we, and our technologically-savvy brethren, will be playing tech support for all the new products coming out. For those that have gotten a first look at the year's newest gadgets here in Vegas, we ask '...

Asus Bang & Olufsen NX90Jq Laptop Not as Awesome as We'd Hoped

We saw some press pics of the new Asus NX90Jq laptop not long ago, and just knowing that we would get a first-hand look during CES got us twitching with anticipation. Asus recently teamed with David Lewis, chief designer for Bang & Olufsen, to create what looked like a stunning piece of personal computing coupled with high-end audio. But now we're ambivalent, as the NX90Jq both lived up to o...

Parrot A.R. Drone Makes Video Games Real and Exciting

One of the most original and exciting products making its debut at CES is undoubtedly the A.R. Drone from Parrot. The augmented reality gaming platform incorporates a remote controlled helicopter and a controller app for the iPhone. (One of the engineers on the project told us that it will be coming to other platforms, too.) We decided to head to Parrot's tent outside the Las Vegas Convention Cen...

Hands On: Panasonic's Twin-lens Camcorder Gets 3-D for a Cool $21K

3-D has been unavoidable this year, but most of the discussion centers around what we may (or may not) be watching, not the production end. We dropped by Panasonic's booth to check out its twin-lens Full HD 3D camcorder. Though $21K might seem a bit stiff, Panasonic claims it's significantly cheaper than most pro-level 3-D camcorders, making a home-brewed version of 'Avatar' that much closer to r...

Blow-Up Lamps and Translucent Laptops From Pega Design

Chinese tech firm Pega Design, an offshoot of Asus, has developed two new incredibly innovative products over which we can't stop drooling. First up is the Pumplight, a small desk lamp with a bladder, reminiscent of a blood pressure pump, that acts to turn the light on and off. The lamp's "shade" is actually a sort of balloon that expands and brightens as it's pumped full. To turn it off, just op...

Intel's AppUp Center Could Enhance Netbooks and Mobile Devices

Yesterday, at Intel's CES keynote, Paul Otellini unveiled the AppUp Center, similar to the iTunes App Store but geared toward netbooks and MIDs (Mobile Internet Device). While our friends at Engadget were busy wondering "why you would need an app store for a Windows netbook," and while The Register was inexplicably declaring that Intel was reinventing software sales, we were mulling over the im...

Diddy Launches His Own Headphones With Dr. Dre and Monster

If a mid-sized company with a semi-niche product is looking for a celebrity endorsement, take a page from Monster's book: go big or don't even bother. The audio company collaborated with Dr. Dre for Beats by Dre, gunning for those high-end hip-hop types that want some substance with their style, and then with Lady Gaga for her girlie, technophile Heartbeats. But yesterday, in the penthouse of the...

Light Touch Pico Projector Creates Touchscreen Out of Anything

Rumors of the Light Touch projection system have been in the pipeline for a little while, and we finally got to do a hands-on demo with the device here at CES. The basics: Light Touch converts any flat surface into a 10-inch screen, from tabletops to walls -- and it's interactive. The surprisingly bright, high-resolution image responds to touch, thanks to an infrared sensing system that tracks th...

iHome Shows Off New iPhone App-Equipped Docks

When Apple launched the iPhone OS 3.0 back in June, one of the features that most thrilled us was the one that allowed apps to interact with specially designed accessories, like docks and blood sugar monitors. Sadly, in the months since, very few new devices have taken advantage of the feature -- especially widely available, consumer-oriented devices. That may change now that iHome, claiming to...

Verizon Gets Palm Pixi Plus and Pre Plus

Yesterday in Vegas, Palm CEO Jon Rubenstein debuted the new Pre Plus and Pixi Plus, coming to Verizon, at Palm's CES keynote. Earlier this week, AT&T announced it would be getting two webOS devices (still no confirmation on which devices). Sprint no longer being the sole Palm webOS purveyor, Verizon will make both phones available on January 25th. No word on pricing, but head after the break ...

Does Vegas Buy the 3-D TV Hype?

Timed barely a month after the release of James Cameron's 3-D behemoth 'Avatar,' CES picked a great time to display the latest and greatest 3-D TV technologies. We've seen some impressive setups so far, but we took to the sidewalks of Vegas to poll the public. Despite having to overcome the clunky glasses, the high costs (during a recession, no less), and the label of gimmick, 3-D TV didn't dra...

Smartfish Keyboard Splits as You Type, Fights Repetitive Strain Injury

There's no end to wacky devices that, so claim the manufacturers and doctors, combat stress on your hands and wrists, a consequence inherent to working on a computer all day. There are split keyboards and ones with obscure letter layouts, but Smartfish has the first keyboard we've seen that automatically moves in order to keep the blood flowing and reduce the strain. The ErgoMotion Keyboard mo...

Polaroid Hires Her, Monster Endorses Her, But We Just Love Lady Gaga

She could team up with any industry in the world, but songstress and superstar Lady Gaga has a taste for tech. "Pokerface" debuted with her Heartbeats headphones, and a Wii even appeared in "Bad Romance." But yesterday, Polaroid announced that the platinum provocateur will be its new creative director, shifting parts of the brand back to the instant film development that made it f...

Soon, AT&T Will Help You Track Your Kids and Packages

What's AT&T to do, now that it has a solid foothold in the cell phone service market? According to Reuters, the wireless provider will make deals to bring its service to 20 new devices this year -- expanding both its reach and our freedom to roam while staying connected. Speaking at CES 2010, Glenn Lurie, head of emerging devices, said these gadgets will include (but not be limited to) e-r...
