There hasn’t been a massive amount of ground breaking stuff at this year’s CES, but the MoveIt Mini from relative unknowns GiiNii has brought a warm glow to the depths of our cynical tech hearts. They’re branding it an alternative to the iPod Touch, and for once, they’re complete justified.
This has blown my mind. I'm sitting here, mind blown, and it's only day two of the show. Where to go from here? This game, called the Mindflex, allows you to control the levitation of a ball, using just your mind. I know, right?
Dan got hands on with the latest media player from Samsung, which boasts a full touchscreen. You can read all about it here, but watch the vid for real life moving pictures.
Below, you’ll find the Sony keynote liveblog, but I feel I should warn you, it went on for two hours. I’d recommend reading this if you’re completely up to date on every other CES related piece of news. There are, however, a few ‘sleb spots for you to enjoy.
Do you like jigging your leg when you watch the TV? Then Sony have the perfect TV for you! Their new Eco Bravia line has a 40% reduction of power usage compared to standard models, through a number of environmentally happy features, the most bizarre of which is undoubtedly the Presence Sensor.
The kids have got the money, and apparently, they like orange and purple. At least that’s the impression you get from Sony’s latest range of camcorders, dubbed the Webbies. Both models record in MPEG4 format, making uploading to the likes of YouTube a piece of cake, and they both record in HD.
Sony have launched the latest in their popular Vaio range this afternoon, with the P Series ‘Lifestyle PC’ AKA pretty coloured laptops. There’s built-in GPS, an 8-inch LCD screen, integrated LAN and the bility to masquerade as a business envelope in terms of size.
So, here we are, breath bated, to see what it is Sony are going to unveil. Judging by the handout we’ve just received you can expect tellies. Lots of them.
We start off with some talk about Jeopardy. Jeopardy was the first game show to be broadcast in high definition, fact fans. The relevance to today? Not entirely clear.
LG announced today that as well as bringing the full Bluray experience to your living room, in the form of Profile 2.0, their new BD370 Bluray player will also stream content from YouTube. Yes, you can enjoy top quality content like the latest in RC ducks right there on your sofa.
LG didn’t have the most dynamic of press conferences, but one thing that did come out was the death of wires (expect some kind of wire-based massacre this CES 2009). They’re integrating Wireless HDMI into their upcoming 2009 LCD product ranges, as well as their projectors.
