Mimomicro expands the Mimobot line further
[CES 2012] What is extremely small, cute as a button, and carries plenty of data? Most of us would remember the Mimobot USB flash drive range from Mimoco that takes advantage of the intellectual property of movie franchises like Star Wars, packaging USB flash drives with a higher-than-normal price tag just because some Star Wars fan wants to collect them all. Well, we will not be dealing with USB flash […]

Holographic iPad illusion from InnoVision
[CES 2012] A mirage can be a very dangerous thing in the desert, but out here in Las Vegas, this is one mirage that I do not mind seeing materialize in the real world – a holographic iPad. This illusion from InnoVision of Taiwan relies on a glass cage enclosure to project a hologram above any device, where their in-house technology would in turn let you view 2D videos as […]

FaceCake demos Swivel virtual fitting room application
[CES 2012] A virtual fitting room – now that is certainly far less of a hassle to try out new clothes compared to the traditional fitting room, even more so for folks like me who wear prescription glasses. After all, removing my glasses before slipping on a new T-shirt and doing the same to wear back my previous shirt can be quite a hassle after the umpteenth time. FaceCake has […]

Nokia Lumia 900 to hit AT&T this March?
[CES 2012] The Nokia Lumia 900 seems to eschew one point concerning Windows Phone models – it places emphasis on quality more than quantity, as how many Windows Phone-powered smartphones do you see released in recent memory? Well, the high end, US-centric Nokia Lumia 900 certainly looks as though it is going to do well on the sales charts (on paper anyways), so you might want to read up our […]


Xpand 3D active shutter glasses
[CES 2012] The world of 3D glasses are separated into two groups – active shutter and passive shutter, and what you see here are 3D active shutter glasses from Xpand 3D, where the one shown right after the jump would target kids (you can tell by the smaller size). At least this pair of 3D glasses do not look all that dorky, although I do think that ordinary folks who […]

EV Mini Sport electric sports car hails from Japan
[CES 2012] Electric sports cars do not really make much sense considering the amount of power required to keep it as nimble and quick as the petrol-powered version, but that does not mean it is impossible. After all, Tesla has done it, but no other company seems to be concentrating on that particular automotive segment as much. Japan’s EV Mini Sport measures 2.49m in length, is 1.29m wide and 1.09m […]

RIM QNX in Porsche concept
[CES 2012] When it comes to automobile technology at CES, you can be sure that there will be new and old players alike each year, trying to outdo each other with their latest releases. Research In Motion’s Porsche Carrera concept car proved to be quite the attention seeker, where the vehicle showed off a slew of innovations which ran on RIM’s QNX platform. What makes this so special? Well, QNX […]

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 […]

3M 46-inch touchscreen prototype
[CES 2012] Remember the Cyberdyne Tacto display that we looked at in last year’s CES? Well, it seems that the ante has been increased, thanks to 3M with their 46″ projected capacitive touchscreen prototype. Specially designed to show off to the world the idea of scalability where touchscreen technology is concerned, this particular device can support up to 20 distinct touch points. If that does not blow your socks away, […]

SlingPlayer headed for Kindle Fire
[CES 2012] The Amazon Kindle Fire might have been quite the bestseller at the end of last year, although Amazon has continued to remain mum on the actual sales figures. It does not matter though, as the Kindle Fire will soon be on the receiving end of SlingPlayer from SlingBox. Just what does the SlingPlayer do? For starters, a little bit of introduction – SlingBox is one popular service that […]

Altec Lansing LIVE 5000 Wi-Fi all-in-one speaker
[CES 2012] Altec Lansing has announced its latest LIVE 5000 Wi-Fi all-in-one speaker at CES this year, and it is rather strange that a company like Altec Lansing has but just one product to show. Well, I guess quality trumps quantity, so let us see what the LIVE 5000 Wi-Fi all-in-one speaker will bring to the table. First of all, it allows one to listen to and control cloud content, […]

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 […]

Fujitsu shows off prototype Tegra 3 quad-core phone
[CES 2012] At CES 2012, Fujitsu showed off a brand new prototype phone that was kept protected behind a Perspex barrier – the only thing exposed was the side of the phone where an HDMI cable joined it with a TV. Known specs of the phone: NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 quad-core SoC, a 4.6″ HD display (720p or 1080p wasn’t mentioned) LTE connectivity, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a 13.1-megapixel rear […]
