Four favourites from CES

The recent Consumer Electronics Show (CES) launched a slew of exciting new bits and pieces of technology, all of which we anticipate over the next year to getting our hands on.

Here are our favourites from this year’s highlights. Check out more at www.cesweb.org.

Sony Bloggie

Sony’s new pocket-sized camcorder steps above the rest, with 1080p HD quality, and 5-megapixel still photos. Featuring 30 frames per second and 4x zoom, it rounded itself out with image stabilization and face detection. We also love that its equipped with a 270-degree swivel lens for self portraits and supports both SD cards and Memory Sticks – a Sony first.

Panasonic’s 152-inch TV

Yep, it’s just that big. Panasonic’s 152-inch plasma display is complete with full HD 3D video (1920 x 1080 pixels per eye). It’s really, really big.

Project Natal

Xbox 360 gamers will be giddy with glee with Microsoft’s new¬† hardware that allows easy digital world interaction. Controllers are replaced with bodies and voice, revolutionizing computer and non-gaming possibilities in the near future.

Lenovo IdeaPad U1

With tablets becoming all the rage, this one is no exception. The new computer from Lenovo appears to be a regular laptop, but unlike others, the 11.6-inch screen can be removed and used as a separate tablet. Convenient and, frankly, cool.
