    Checkin' out Tritton's surround sound headset, finally

    Man, I saw these back at PAX but for some reason never brought them up. Which is too bad, because they're pretty cool. I love the little in-line remote that lets you control the volume for individual surround channels. They sounded good back at PAX, but as I note in the video, there were a ton of dudes around when I was there so I didn't try them on again. They're gonna have a ton of different… Read More

  • CES Video: Samsung ships world's first pico projector enabled cell phone, the Show

    Did I call it or what? This is, at the moment, the first and only mobile phone with TI's DLP pico projector technology. It will ship later this month in Korea but we'll have to wait until later this year to see if Samsung decides to ship it Stateside. As you'll see in the video the device is capable of projecting all sorts of content at a decent resolution. Rather than blabbing on about it, I'll… Read More

  • iHearSafe: A good idea

    iHearSafe: A good idea

    So these things are basically headphones designed to output up to and only up to 85 decibels. You plug them in and no matter how high the device is set, your child will be listening at a level safe enough for everyday use and that won't damage their hearing accidentally. Read More

  • Hands-on Touch Revolution's NIMble Android-powered platform

    Hands-on Touch Revolution's NIMble Android-powered platform

    CES is filled with gadgets and gizmos that are known about months ahead of time and so the real jewels are the booths from previously unknown companies. Case in point is Touch Revolution and its sweet NIMble platform that is ran by *gasp* Android. Read More

  • Apex racing cage with triple screen is the biggest gaming accessory ever

    Well, maybe not the biggest ever (Tekken on IMAX!) or the most original, but with all its chromoly-steel construction and tubey good looks, I just had to put it up. I'd like bigger screens, personally, and they were playing a kind of lackluster racer, but the device itself was cool. The wheel is Logitech and the pedals... I'm not sure, but there were three and they were big and metal, so it… Read More

  • A truly great CES post

    A truly great CES post

    I'll admit that I'm a cranky bastard at these shows. You guys have essentially entrusted us with the difficult and thankless job of allowing you to subjugate your neophilia through frequent and effusive discussions of new technology and we, in turn, have become jaded, angry, and bitter. Why? Because doing this stuff is hard work. It requires constant attention, the ability to write intelligently… Read More

  • Hands on with Mattel's weird Mindflex Game

    Now here's something that will end up at the bottom of the toybox next Christmas. The Mindflex lets you control a floating ball around a little obstacle course. Air bumps and pops the ball through hoops and tubes and ends up frustrating you more than anything else. Read More

  • CES Video: HP Firebird with Voodoo DNA

    CES Video: HP Firebird with Voodoo DNA

    HP finally came clean on its Firebird midsize gaming rig and we just spent a few minutes with the liquid-cooled machine. It seems that HP had the traveling gamer in mind as it's light enough to lug between LAN parties thanks to its laptop components. But don't forget that Gideon Bible-sized power brick. Overall though, it's a hot little rig that's sure to make all the nerdy LAN chicks giddy. Read More
