There’s really nothing better than lazing around in the sun next to your pool with an ice cold beer. Or at least I’m fairly sure there isn’t – but then I live in a third floor flat in Scotland, which pretty much rules out ‘pools’ and ‘sun’ all at once. One thing I definitely don’t like doing is hauling my lazy arse out of a chair to go and find more beer, which is why the Interactive Toy Concepts RC Cooler looks fantastic.
Digital Photo frames are another staple of CES, although having been utterly bowled over by the stunning intensity of Sony’s little OLED screens, I wonder how long the traditional LCD digital picture frames are going to keep up. But now that LCD frames have been lurking around for a fair old while, they’re starting to enjoy some really powerful connectivity options. The latest set from Impecca, which makes a fair few digital frames, along with iPod docks and portable DVD players, offer WiFi access and the ability to stream pictures from the internet.
