• Hands on with the the 3rd Space force feedback vest


    I’d probably be the first to raise an eyebrow at the idea of a gaming vest that whacks you where you’re being shot/cut/bludgeoned, but these guys have made something that could really add another dimension to things, especially in creepy games like Silent Hill and Resident Evil (as if they didn’t scare me enough already). They put it on me, as you can see, and I tried out… Read More

  • Belkin Mouse Trap

    Belkin makes a lot of great products. Belkin also makes a lot of questionable products. The Mouse Trap is a perfect example of the latter. Maybe it’s because I haven’t used a mouse pad in years, but I don’t see the point of having a special pouch to transport your mouse in when there’s a huge crease after you’ve unzipped it. Whatever, though, I’m sure… Read More

  • CES could leave Las Vegas, pigs take to the air


    NBC is posting that CES will leave Las Vegas, which is like saying the Pope will leave Rome. Las Vegas’ 31st International Consumer Electronics Show could be one of its last, organizers said Monday, saying they believe they can get a cheaper deal elsewhere. As I said before, CES is losing value as a venue for announcing technology. It is a trade fair where vendors and buyers meet to… Read More

  • CES 2008: Belkin's Tune Studio is an iPod-recording 4-track that I want

    http://progressive.playstream.com/playstream/progressive/flashplayers/FLVPlayer.swf Musicians, listen up. Making a good demo is key, and many do it digitally, as they should. This Tune Studio, along with your iPod, makes it way easy. The audio in the video above is hard to hear, but basically this violinish band is recording their performance using one of these (it was just off stage). You… Read More

  • FLIR PathFindIR keeps you safe at night

    Two seconds later I kicked Biggs in the nuts. Product Name: PathFindIR
    Description: A thermal imaging camera that boasts the ability to let you see 5-times farther than normal headlights while driving at night. It’s currently the core thermal imager in BMW’s Night Vision nighttime driving aid system. Read More

  • Iomega's Zip Drive is back with a vengeance


    Everyone remembers the Iomega Zip Drive – we all had one, it’s okay to say it. I’d lost track of the company for a while, but they’re striking back with a new version of the device, which probably will get mixed reactions. It’s called the Rev and it’s essentially a HDD split in half – the head and mechanisms are in the reader, and in each… Read More

  • Palringo raises $5m for mobile client

    Palringo – a UK startup with an instant messaging, voice and picture messaging client for mobiles which uses mobile data to bypass mobile operators’ SMS and MMS offerings – has raised $5m in funding, bringing in new investors ePlanet Ventures and NTEC. These have invested alongside existing investors Northstar Equity Investors, Prime Technology Ventures and Esther Finance. Read More

  • CES Today: Will the madness never end?

    We’re all a bit hungover today so we’re busy milling around snapping photos of booth babes and finding whatever hidden gems we may have missed over the last few days. In the meantime check out the above video. It basically sums up how we all feel. CES 2008: Belkin’s Podcast Studio: You know, for podcasters
    Look out Eee, a $399 tiny laptop from Everex is afoot

  • Hands on with Jook

    Biggs doesn’t see the point of Jook and neither do I. Well, I guess it’s sort of cool, but everyone and their mom has to have one for this to work. I guess it’s better than sharing my earbuds with someone like a 16-year old at the mall. Read More

  • CES 2008: We need drinks. So do you! Monte Carlo Pub tonight at 9



    Blogging is hard. Look at the crowds we have to face just to bring you all the goodies you’re getting today. Just look! So later tonight we’re going to have drinks and stuff. And, if you’re in the Las Vegas area, either for CES or you live here, we’d like you to join us. It’s your chance to meet the bloggers behind the blog and then we can blog about it on… Read More

  • iPhone pig docks from China

    Biggs, Devin and I trekked over to the Sands to try and get into some AVn mischief, but, sadly, we were denied. Instead of scantily clad women we found iPod/iPhone docks from China. There were pigs and something resembling Inky. I’m completely delirious and need to go home. Read More

  • Biggs loves his toys

    I really think there’s something wrong with Biggs. The gallery is clearly evident of that. He randomly sings karaoke and then attempts to kill me with Halo Covenant weapons. Read More

  • CES 2008: Belkin's Podcast Studio: You know, for podcasters

    Hands down, one of the coolest things I’ve seen at CES so far this week is the Belkin Podcast Studio. It’s a handheld unit that you attach your iPod to. Using a pair of swiveling integrated microphones on each side, the device records what they hear in stereo as an uncompressed WAV on to the iPod. You can even control the pitch and volume, as well as the stereo balance. Besides… Read More

  • Just a reminder that R2D2 as a projector is awesome

    http://progressive.playstream.com/playstream/progressive/flashplayers/FLVPlayer.swf This is not a new idea by any means. I just wanted to reassure everyone that it still evokes a chuckle and a knowing head nod to see R2D2 effortlessly tossing moving images up onto a white screen. It’s what he was meant to do. That is all. Read More

  • MP3 headphones getting cheaper, slightly less fugly

    I’ve been seeing a lot of these headphones with built-in storage and digital audio playback today. They’re almost everywhere, staring at me as if I’d tried to date their sister. Leave me alone, hundreds and hundreds of similar headphones! This pair, in particular, is made by a company out of Hong Kong called Majesty Industrial. They come in a myriad of storage sizes running up… Read More

  • Look out Eee, a $399 tiny laptop from Everex is afoot


    I found the VIA table last night, tucked way back in a corner and found out that Everex will begin selling an ultraportable Linux-based notebook similar to the one shown here. This one is from Packard Bell and runs XP — currently being sold in Europe — but the one we’ll be getting in the US within the next week or so will be manufactured by Everex and will run Linux.

  • Yahoo Releases Browser Based MP3 Player

    This is clearly just a first step in whatever Yahoo’s grand plans are around the future of their music service, but today they released some code to embed a very simple Javascript based MP3 player on any website. The player finds MP3s on a given web page, creates a playlist and a very simple overlay to play the songs. A small play icon is placed next to every MP3 link, and the player… Read More

  • Slacker Player: It's here at CES, lighter than I thought

    http://progressive.playstream.com/playstream/progressive/flashplayers/FLVPlayer.swf So I groped the Slacker Portable last night. I’ve been hard on Slacker about how delayed its portable player has been. First it was supposed to be here by the end of the summer, then it was supposed to be here in December, then it got delayed again until the end of January. I hope it launches in the end… Read More

  • Machine-washable heated jacket, very warm gloves

    We’ve all seen heated clothing before but there are a couple of somewhat unique about this line of jackets and gloves. First, the gloves have heating circuits that go all the way to the fingertips. Most other heated gloves center on the palm of the hand but these ones keep the part of your hands most susceptible to cold — your digits. Read More
