CES is the acronym for the (International) Consumer Electronics Show, one of the largest consumer-electronics shows in the world. Although it is held in Las Vegas today, the first CES happened in June 1967 in New York City and Bob Gavin, the CEO of Motorola was the opening keynote speaker for that first edition. Subsequently, CES was held twice a year: the summer edition was in New York, and the winter edition was in Las Vegas, that is, until 1998 when CES became a once-a-year show. CES has been the introduction place for key products and technologies, including: Pong (1975), Nintendo NES (1985), Tetris (1988), Compact Disc (1991), HDTV (1998), Xbox (2001), Blu-Ray (2003), OLED TV (2008).

Asus D200 On Display

01/09/2009, [CES 2009] The Asus D200 is still not released Stateside, but that has not stopped Asus from bringing it to the showfloor. This Atom N270 powered D200 does have some pretty strong specifications to back it up despite being relatively small in size,...

MX-6000 Home Theater Remote Control

01/09/2009, [CES 2009] Remote controls tend to get rather bulky due to the fact that they have plenty of controls to deal with, but the advent of touchscreen displays have helped shrink this form factor to a more manageable size. Still, we’re waiting for the...

Jamstykk For A Portable Guitar Experience

01/09/2009, [CES 2009] The title didn’t really come out right since guitars are portable, never mind the fact that they can get pretty heavy if you’re going to lug it around the whole day long. With the explosion of Guitar Hero and Rock Band games, there...

Novelquest Emperor Workspace

01/09/2009, [CES 2009] Isn’t this just the coolest workspace ever? It looks so space age, even those folks aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise and the Super Star Destroyer bridges will probably drool after it. I mean, how are you going to turn this down after using it...

TV Stand With Speakers

01/09/2009, [CES 2009] We’ve seen tons of convergence devices hit the market already, and there have been winners and losers so far. I was perusing through the South Hall and stumbled across this TV stand with built-in speakers. Heck, it even comes with a USB...

Ewoo Shows Off iPod Speaker Dock

01/08/2009, [CES 2009] Show Stoppers is rather muted affair this year, focusing more on software as a service rather than hardware, and we feel that The Digital Experience had more content hardware wise. Well, amidst the few hardware stops available at Show Stoppers...

EasyBloom Plant Sensor In Action

01/08/2009, [CES 2009] We’ve covered the EasyBloom in the past, but here it is in the flesh. For the benefit of those who have no idea what the EasyBloom Plant Sensor is all about, it is a device that you stick into the soil of a plant, where it will proceed to...

Asus Bamboo Series 12-inch Notebook

01/08/2009, [CES 2009] I really like what Asus has done with its Bamboo Series notebook – place it on a wooden floor and chances are pretty good you would actually have it blend into the background. This 12″ Bamboo Series is Asus’ part in helping...

Asus Eee Stick GMC-1

01/08/2009, [CES 2009] Here’s a snapshot of the Asus Eee Stick GMC-1 that aims to bring a Wii-like gaming experience to the computer. I don’t think this will catch on in terms of PC gaming in time to come, as it has already been out for some time already...

Asus Vito W1 Mouse Checks Your Heart Rate

01/08/2009, [CES 2009] Guess the computer mouse is not meant for making life easier in a graphical user interface environment as Asus has introduced a new twist to its Vito W1 laser mouse. Apart from its 1,200dpi resolution laser, you get wireless connectivity within...

i2! Stream Offers Wireless Audio

01/08/2009, [CES 2009] Wireless audio is nice to have, and the i2! Stream could prove to be the device that brings it mainstream for everyday use. I was attracted to the booth by the lighted ring (up to 7 colors) like a moth to lamps, and I’m not disappointed....

Xantrex Solar Charger Prototype

01/08/2009, [CES 2009] Going green is a pretty big theme at CES this year – after all with the stuttering economy, it makes perfect sense to help renew and preserve whatever we have to save costs (as well as have a green planet for our kids in the future). It...

Transcend PF810 Digital Picture Frame

01/08/2009, [CES 2009] Digital picture frames are dime a dozen, and Transcend attempts to be different this CES with the PF810 digital picture frame. Frankly, there isn’t really too much different about this apart from the inclusion of a touch-based bezel...
