CES 2010

Tags:
This year's CES Unveiled Press Event seemed to have a better collection of products than last year. And shrimp at the buffet, too! {mosslide:everything_else/ces2010/dlink_parts.jpg:title}D-Link's table had the Home Monitoring kit and its various sensors on display. You can see motion and window sensors and keypad that I was told would be bundled into the base kit. Tbere's also a keychain control fob.
Also on the table was a power sensor for the Home Energy Monitor kit, Wireless N Pocket Router (mid-left) and One-Bay Portable NAS near the top of the photo. {/mosslide} {mosslide:everything_else/ces2010/dlink_pebble_held.jpg:title1}Here's the new D-Link Pebble media player held by D-Link's Les Goldberg. Along with the Boxee Box, it seems like D-Link is definitely not into boring rectangular boxes for its new media players. You can see power, Ethernet, HDMI and digital audio connectors.{/mosslide} {mosslide:everything_else/ces2010/popbox.jpg:title2}There was a lot of activity around Sybas' Popbox table. The $129 media player could steal sales away from their popular Popcorn Hour "media tank".{/mosslide} {mosslide:everything_else/ces2010/logitech_lifesize_passport.jpg:title3}Logitech's acquisition of Lifesize should enable them to push the price of HD video conferencing down to where you and I might affort it. But at $2500, the "entry level" Passport system being demoed isn't quite there yet.{/mosslide} {mosslide:everything_else/ces2010/logitech_lifesize_passport_closeup.jpg:title4}Closer view of the Logitech Lifesize Passport hardware. It can provide a 720p 30 fps picture with only 1 Mbps of bandwidth.{/mosslide} {mosslide:everything_else/ces2010/microvision_projector.jpg:title5}Microvision's SHOWWX Laser Pico Projector was drawing a lot of attention. The demo had the projector driven by an iPod Touch / iPhone.{/mosslide} {mosslide:everything_else/ces2010/3m_projector.jpg:title6}3M was also showing its MPro120 handhelf digital projector on the other side of the room.{/mosslide} {mosslide:everything_else/ces2010/lacie_wuala.jpg:title7}French storage drive maker LaCie finally gave up on getting Americans to properly pronounce "Voila" and spelled their cloud storage service phoenetically. Wuala works with LaCie's CooKey and WhizKey flash drives.
LaCie was also showing its LaCinema Mini HD and Network Space 2 drives.{/mosslide} {mosslide:everything_else/ces2010/shrimp.jpg:title8}Shrimp at CES press events usually indicates years that have had better business conditions than 2009 had. Perhaps this is a bet on things to come in 2010?{/mosslide} {mosslide:everything_else/ces2010/massage_chairs.jpg:title9}And it wouldn't be CES without a massage chair vendor (or two) showing up somewhere. With their usual Sands Expo venue closed this year, it looks like they decided to try pitching the press directly.{/mosslide}
