CES is in full swing, and the evening started out with Digital Experience. It’s hard to convey the extent of technology that one encounters at CES. Picture every gadget, monitor, tv, cell phone, and electronic toy you have ever dreamed of, all there in front of you. Becker showed off their new Traffic Assist Portable Navigation, Vudu introduced us to tv’s new best friend, a box that streams high-def video on demand. Eye-Fi Card is a Wireless 2GB Memory Card and MagicJack lets you make and receive long distance calls from all around the world via your USB port. And the most jaw dropping for this geek girl was the Alienware super panoramic monitor that blew my mind.
But don’t think it’s just computer stuff, Jakks has an EyeClops, a “bionic eye” that serves as a microscope, allowing the image to be pumped directly to a display screen such as a monitor or TV, Pocketfinder Pets are locator devices that utilize GPS tracking technology to offer peace of mind to pet owners. iRobot had a new device to unveil, a gutter cleaner. You simply place it in your rain gutter and hit the power button, it moves itself along, cleaning your gutters for you. When it’s done, you just retrieve it. That’s just an example of a household item available, but there’s much much more.
The show floors open again in just a few hours so this Geek Girl needs to get her sleep, I’ll let you know what treasure I find tomorrow.
