    Re: Official 2010 CES Show Thread

    I am waiting to make a final mega post with all the wrap up stuff, but there is one that may be HUGE:

    Airnergy WiFi power system gives RCA a reason to exist (video)
    and
    [CES 2010] RCA Airnergy Charger Harvests Electricity From WiFi Signals

    If this thing turns out to work, just think about never having to plug your cell phone or Ipod in to recharge. And in towns that have good Wi-Fi coverage, you could never have to worry about a dead battery again. That really could be the biggest thing out of CES.

    Still collecting all the final news, but had to post this NOW

    Start your $$ saving!

    Microvision laser projection gun hands-on

    I do wonder how long you could play before getting tired, but I guess it would take a while to get used to the workout of those muscles. Man I wish they had a firm release price and date!

    Watch the video and think about which room of your house you could convert

    We all need circular rooms now. Damn technological advancements. Interesting that they say this was meant for use in cell phones too. How cool would it be to go on a plane and have a phone like a G1 or Droid or Nexus One and be able to watch a movie projected from the phone onto, say, the tray table while it's flipped up? Much easier than having to drag out the laptop.

    Actually, there are tons of those phones being shown, both at and before CES. Just do a search on engadget or gizmodo. Pico projector should bring up some. Here are just a couple from the last few days:

    Logic Wireless 150LGW projector phone reminds us of that Bolt we once saw

    Samsung's pico projecting W9600 gets a brief hands-on

    LG eXpo projector hands-on

    Re: Official 2010 CES Show Thread

    Ok, there is still some news trickling out, but most of it is just repeating, so time for the wrap up post(s), and there is a ton of stuff to see. Here, we gooooooo.............................


    Lets start with the Home Theater and Audio news:

    LG unveils world's slimmest LE9500 LED LCD HDTV - Some more good pic of that set. It really looks amazing!

    CES 2010: New LG HDTVs - Full of Features and Razor Thin (Updated!)
    - has video of the set

    CES 2010: Samsung Goes for 3D

    CES: 2010 Best of CES winner is Panasonic's 3D plasma TV - I disagree, but it's their site.....

    CES 2010: LG's Booth Coverage (Updated with Video!)

    CES 2010 TV Trends - 3D, Ridiculously Thin and Connected - Anandtech's wrapup on TVs

    So here is LG's high end:




    And here is Samsung's high end:





    Since it is already a given that sound out of these razor flat tv's will suck, here is the audio you will need:

    CES: 3D Blu-ray player roundup--what you need to know - Short and very worth the read

    CES: CES 2010 wrap-up: home theater

    CES: LG's unannounced, awesome Blu-ray sound bar

    CES: Samsung's trio of Blu-ray HTIBs get DLNA, Wi-Fi, apps


    CES: LG's Blu-ray HTIBs get built-in Wi-Fi, HDMI inputs - WOW, built in WiFi might be worth the wait for. And it looks pretty hot too






    And the rest:

    I'm Sold On 3D TVs...And I Kind of Hate Myself For It

    What It Feels Like to Watch 3DTV: Viewing a Digital Diorama

    Intel shows off glasses-free 3D demo -- now this is more like it



    I was really disappointed by the computer monitor stuff shown this year. Everyone is going to 1080p only it seems like. Not cool

    There were some cool things shown, like the Samsung/ATI setup, but come on, $1800?????? And only 1080p rex? You could buy 3 of the very good Dell ISP monitors, on sell right now for $499, and a mount (or make one yourself), and it would look way better. Now if the Samsung setup completly got rid of the frames, we might be able to talk more.

    Cnet feels the same way:
    CES: Wrap-up: Monitor industry rests on its laurels

    CES 2010: Hands-On with Dell and Acer's 23" 3D Vision Monitors

    Samsung and ATI team on SyncMaster MD230 mega-displays for wide-eyed gamers






    Ostendo multiple CRVD display games-on - These are stunning, but I should hope so at $6,500 each. And they are running 3! Video of 2 dumbasses playing at the link.







    That about does it for audio/video. Will do another post with the rest.

    Re: Official 2010 CES Show Thread

    Back for more.

    There was some gaming news at CES

    CES 2010: Gaming wrap-up | CES 2010 - CNET

    Razer hits the Xbox 360 with Onza controller and Chimaera headset, we go hands-on (video) -- Engadget

    Hands-on with PS3 in 3D | CES 2010 - CNET

    Nyko rolls out PS3 Slim accessories | CES 2010 - CNET


    There was also some other stuff from MS about natal motion controllers.


    As for more computer stuff, there is still some interesting stuff trickling out:

    CES 2010: Psyko Audio - These are getting really good reviews, but WOW! at $300 I should hope so. I would really like to test some out. I have looked at their website a few times while helping TG guys pick out some new headsets, and they are always sold out.

    Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD, X-Fi HD USB

    MSI unveils Radeon R5870 Lighting and R5850 Cyclone - Something like that makes it really hard to wait for the Nvidia stuff to get here. All the reports are now saying very low quantities of Nvidia in March, and it may be 2 months after release till we see a stable supply. Which of course means they will be way overpriced due to supply/demand. I am really leaning on going with an ATI card like this. Thinking of waiting for the first real reviews of the Nvidia cards to show up, and if they are absolutely mind blowing good, will snag an ATI, which have come down in price even more.

    Cydle M7 Android tablet has TV tuner, external monitor capabilities - I'm pretty excited about this. It may be a tablet, but you can use it as an external monitor and is touchscreen. And only $200!! People could write little programs for it that you could use while gaming, like macros in WOW. I'm also thinking how awesome this would be in flight sims where you could have modeled toggle switches and stuff. So many possibilities.







    USB 3.0 SuperSpeed gone wild at CES 2010, trumps even your new SSD -- Engadget


    CES 2010 DAY COVERAGE: INTRODUCTION, ASUS & CES UNVEILED - This site has a multi day pic guide with tons to see. Be sure to check out all 4 days to see everything.

    The CES 2010 Conclusion - SoCs, Motherboards, Cases & More
    - The Anandtech wrap up.

    Mad Catz readies up new Eclipse keyboards & mice :: TweakTown - Wow, MadCatz might be about to release the got to have keyboard. The numpad is completly customizable touchscreen. Looks really good too, and not bad at $129 for wireless and $99 for wired. I'm actually liking the little trackball with mouse keys under the numpad. Kind of wish it was under the spacebar. That would let me throw out megaposts like this one without constantly going back and forth to my mouse. Wish it gave a release date.

    Intel's Atom-powered home energy dashboard concept gets itself a website, no closer to retail reality -- Engadget
    - I can't wait for these to become common place. Would buy one in a heartbeat. Right now I'm running one of these: Blue Line Innovations PowerCost Monitor Got it for like $50 from my local power company. It's great to see realtime power usage, like when you hear the heater kick on, or after someone takes a shower and the hotwater heater kicks on, and the power usage jumps way way up. Stupid hot water heater
    Also just got this last week: Black & Decker TLD100 Thermal Leak Detector
    It is AWESOME!!!!!. I've spent hours going around spotting spots I need to caulk or add insulation. The area around my attic access is about 70 degress, but the actual door/board is 55 degrees. Any wonder why my heat has been running non-stop for the last week. It is like 15 degrees outside at night.
    Sorry to go off topic. Save that for another post

    And finally Engadget and Gizmodo just posted their wrapups.

    CES 2010: all the stuff (and more) -- Engadget

    The Best of CES



    Will probably come across 1 or 2 more cool things, and will post them later.

    So what do you all think? Anything that tickles your fancy? Anything that has you seriously considering buying? What are you thinking about 3d TV?



    Stoop and you'll be stepped on; stand tall and you'll be shot at.

    Great writeups as always Bamboo!

    I will wait on 3DTV, but I do like the super slim TVs. I look forward to the day when everything is wireless, including power.

    I am looking forward to USB3.0, however.

    Looks like the Intel wireless to TV thing that Anandtech loved (posted above) is already out at bestbuy
    Netgear's Push2TV wireless TV adapter caught nonchalantly hanging out in the wild

    Too bad only 3 brand new laptops support it.


    And to go along with the news of the Intel energy monitor posted above, Gizmodo just reported on this:

    Silverpac Thermostat's 7-Inch Touchscreen Measures Electricity Usage





    Too bad they don't have details on price or anything. Would be very interested in that.

    Super Slim TV's are looking pretty nice. Their price won't though.

    3D is dumb. Not a fan of 3D movies and shelling out extra money for a stupid 3D TV is just insane. I'm NOT wearing glasses while watching TV. Never going to happen.

    Tegra is looking pretty cool though. Amazing what they can do on that little chip with no heat sink while using next to no power. If the price is right I'd buy a Tegra tablet.

    Oh yeah I just bought a 5850. Couldn't pass up $269.99. Probably still pick up a Fermi card when I can get my hands on one. I get great graphics now and I can always pawn the 5850 to some one to make up the difference.
