LightPad G1 turns phone into notebook
[CES 2012] If there is a way to describe the LightPad G1, it makes your smartphone more useful than it already is. While some tablets do come with an accompanying dock to make you feel as though you were working on a notebook, how about a device that does the same – but for your smartphone instead? The LightPad G1 will rely on pico projector technology, transferring image onto a […]

Audi Connect System
[CES 2012] Audi’s range of vehicles are definitely right up there in terms of technology, but how many of us are able to drive an Audi? This has not stopped the German automaker from introducing a range of new features for its Connect System at CES this year, defining Connect as “networked mobility” for its fleet of compatible vehicles. With Audi Connect, you will be greeted by a bunch of […]

Fujitsu Arrows waterproof tablet
[CES 2012] I am not quite sure why you would bring your tablet to the shower with you, or even when you are snorkeling, but just in case that happens to be the case, then the Fujitsu Arrows waterproof tablet is your cup of tea. This Android-powered tablet will sport a waterproof body, making sure splashes are to be shrugged off so you need not run helter skelter from the […]

SteelSeries Siberia v2 Frost Blue Headset
[CES 2012] Look cool with the new SteelSeries Siberia v2 Frost Blue Headset, where wearing this might just psychologically lower the temperature in the room already, thanks to super-bright, blue LED lights that glow through the outer mesh grill on each earcup. Of course, the effect is more of one for viewers rather than the owner of the Siberia v2 Frost Blue itself – unless, of course, he or she […]

SteelSeries Flux headset
[CES 2012] When it comes to FPS (First Person Shooters) , audio plays an extremely role as you determine where your opponent is, get your bearings, and plan out the next move. Do you make a run for the armor or weapon, or wait it out and use that as bait instead, eagerly waiting for the footsteps of your opponent? Having said that, playing with a set of desktop speakers […]

Asus Xtion hands-on
[CES 2012] PrimeSense, the folks behind the Xbox 360’s Kinect, must have figured out a Blue Ocean strategy and decided to expand the motion control market for video games by teaming up with Asus, releasing the Wavi Xtion at CES this year in the process. To summarize, the Xtion is actually the sum of a few parts, sporting a PrimeSense 3D depth camera that was specially developed for PC use, […]

SteelSeries Kinzu v2 and Kinzu v2 Pro Edition mice
[CES 2012] I am starting to suspect that SteelSeries wants to cater to the entire gamer spectrum – ranging from casual ones to those who are serious enough to making a career out of it. The SteelSeries Kinzu v2 and Kinzu v2 Pro Edition mice confirms my suspicions, as these gaming mice target those who are minimalist in nature. How so, you ask? For starters, the SteelSeries Kinzu v2 Pro […]

Gobandit Live action camera delivers far more than successor
[CES 2012] A successor to any product would definitely have to come with its fair share of changes and modifications to improve upon its predecessor, and the Gobandit Live action camera does just that this time around, improving upon the Gobandit GPS HD camera by throwing in everything but the kitchen sink – we are looking at a gyroscopic sensor, 1080p capture ability at 30fps, a 170-degree f/2.8 wide angle […]
