    Here's a 1990 CES photo set for your amusement

    Another year, another CES. The show this year wasn’t that different then previous years with some new stuff, a lot of old crap, and nerds all over Vegas. Hopefully you followed us around the show floor via our massively-successful Livestream feed. If not, stay tuned. We’re going to cut a lot of the fluff and repost the good stuff like my interview with a panda and Doug walking into a… Read More

  • CES postmortem: So long, and thanks for all the press kits

    CES postmortem: So long, and thanks for all the press kits

    To cap off the CES coverage, we’d like to give a shout-out to our partners and also discuss our coverage. We do this for you guys, after all, so feel free to chime in with your opinion on both the show and us. The biggest electronics show in the world is a difficult thing to report as it is with only a handful of timid bloggers, ripped from their natural habitat as it were, and placed in an… Read More

  • Hands-on with Microvision's pico projector-equipped gun controller

    Hands-on with Microvision's pico projector-equipped gun controller

    You remember a few months ago there was a video going around of this thing, and I called it out for being derivative of the Redneck Techie’s Game Gun? Well, that criticism still stands, but after testing this controller out, I have to say that whether it’s the only game gun on the market or not, this thing is awesome. Read More

    Best of CES 2010

    CES is over for CrunchGear (we'll still be posting some stragglers today and tomorrow) but we'd like to reflect on the best gear we saw at the show. These few days flew by and even with the glut of 3D TVs and ereaders we were actually impressed by a few small, good things that caught our eye on the show floor. Here are the winners of CrunchGear's Best of CES 2010 informal editor poll. Read More

    Feet on with Sanyo's eneloop electric-assist bike

    So if you're living anywhere outside the US, you're sitting on an electric bike right now. It seems we're the only country in which electric-assist bikes like this haven't caught on. Maybe it's because of our obsession with gigantic, gas-guzzling SUVs we never use for their intended purpose. But I digress. The fact is that other countries have found electric bikes practical in pretty good volume… Read More

  • Evertune keeps your guitar tuned forever

    Evertune keeps your guitar tuned forever

    At the Startup Debut event earlier on at CES, we got to check out this great, and practical, new guitar component called Evertune. It's a bridge that keeps your guitar tuned at whatever you put it at, but not using freaky electronics. I thought it had to involve microservos and such, but no: The EverTune bridge feeds your guitar strings into an adaptive spring-tensioner inside the guitar body. As… Read More

  • Sharp goes its own way, doesn't lose its mind promoting 3D TV (like everyone else has)

    Sharp goes its own way, doesn't lose its mind promoting 3D TV (like everyone else has)

    Let's have a round of applause for Sharp, which could be the only TV manufacturer here that isn't freaking out over 3D. (Not that it, too, doesn't have 3D TVs on its roster, but it doesn't treat them as the be-all, end-all.) Instead, Sharp made the brave decision to try something different, which, you'll recall, adds yellow to the usual threesome of red, green, and blue pixels. Read More

  • CES so far

    CES so far

    CES always seems shorter than it really is. We've been here in Vegas since Tuesday, reporting live on almost everything of any importance, and we're all goofy and tired. I usually hate CES. It's a long slog through endless halls and repetitive meetings that go over what has already been gone over. But this year was different. This year's CES was strangely subdued yet refreshing. CE companies have… Read More

  • You know, you could have just asked me to put my camera away, Mr. Drunk With Power bouncer

    You know, you could have just asked me to put my camera away, Mr. Drunk With Power bouncer

    Why do nightclub bouncers think they're above the law? I attended a Divx party at some place called Moon at the Palms Hotel in Las Vegas for CES. (Divx actually has some neat stuff on the way, but that's a matter for another day.) Like always, I had my camera, a Canon DSLR, hanging around my neck. This, having a camera, wasn't an issue at the Divx party, which ended at 11:00pm, but it most… Read More

    NSFW: True Companion Debuts Sex Robot Roxxxy

    Men have often dreamed it, but it hasn’t become a reality until today: the sex robot. The technology was developed by Douglas Hines of  True Companion, an electrical engineer and computer scientist who formerly worked in the artificial intelligence lab at AT&T Bell Laboratories. Roxxxy, the sexy bot, is a completely anatomically correct and customizable companion (from features to hair… Read More
