This year, though Casepops (sadly) didn't attend CES, we wanted to share a couple of our favorite gadgets that we considered best of CES 2013. With such great coverage from many popular news outlets, it was easy to follow along and feel like we were right there in sunny Las Vegas all the way from Pittsburgh. In the end, we think these gadgets best represent the entrepreneurial spirit of CES, and love to see people pushing technology forward in this way. Here's what we liked best:
Talk about next generation. This technology, as demonstrated by Bright Side of News, boggles our mind and has to be one of the best innovations we've seen in a while. The debate about touch screen (iPhone) vs. physical buttons (Blackberry) could end once and for all if this tech were able to be added to phones of the future.
Basically, as soon as you touch a phone's keyboard to type (a text or anything) the special screen fills from beneath, creating small firm buttons where there would usually be a flat screen. As soon as you touch away from the keyboard, the liquid-filled buttons just dissolve back into the screen!
Though it may have started as a small Kickstarter project (we love those too), the Pebble Watch was a hit at this year's CES, and is definitely one of our pics for "best of CES." Why? Because it incorporates design, fashion, and technology into an elegant and useful product.
Additionally, Mashable reports that the Pebble is the only smart watch out there to use an E-ink display, like the ones you find in Kindles and E-readers. That means it's inexpensive ($150) and function with extremely long battery life and high readability, even in bright sunlight.
Don't believe that this little thing is worthy of some mention? Check out its specs!
While GPS has become commonplace in our society thanks to smartphones and in-car devices, no device has so blatantly said, "Stalk me" like the I'm Here tracking device.
The device is pretty self-explanatory. It can be used by people to keep track of luggage on a flight, loved ones, or valuable items. Theoretically, you could drop the small box anywhere and keep track of its whereabouts from anywhere using your iPhone. It will cost you $160 up front, but you can locate it up to 200 times for free, according to Mashable.
