CES 2013 Conclusion

The Consumer Electronics Show was a ton of fun this year.  While this blog wasn’t as active photo-wise as recent years,  I hope that the absolutely massive amount of video content made up for that.  If you missed one of the videos, click on the thumbnails below, or click here to view the playlist.  Thanks for following along, and I hope to see you all next year!

This video is of an actual blind user using a smartphone virtual keyboard.

Fleksy is a virtual keyboard solution that allows for anybody to type on their phone without looking.  Using a combination of an intelligent auto-correct system and audio cues, this keyboard for smartphones or tablets can be operated without the user every looking at their screen.

MakerBot Industries was showing off their new Replicator 2X.  The Replicator 2X features dual printer heads to allow for two color printing, as well as the ability to use both PLA and ABS plastic.  Check out a previous post to see some of the printed objects!

ECOVACS’ booth prominently featured a window cleaning robot, Winbot.  Like Roomba for glass, this robot can scale your windows and polish the surface.  The running joke was that an army of these slowly scaling (and cleaning) the sides of the Rio hotel was going to show up in iRobot 2.

With two touchscreens and a myriad of effects, the Portable DJ (PDJ) from JD Sound is a very powerful mobile DJ setup.

3D Systems had their new tri-color CubeX Trio 3D printer on display.  The printer has the ability to use both ABS and PLA plastic, allowing for whichever type of material is best of the job to be used.

Holografyx was in Eureka Park showing off their “Cube” Hologram Projector. 

CRAYS Technology Limited produced a small, wireless sports camera that can be used up to 5 meters underwater.  The camera can be wirelessly connected to an iPhone or Android device to watch the video stream remotely.

At the Canonical display was a single phone running the new Ubuntu phone OS.  While the company wouldn’t allow for thee public to touch the device, they promised that a ROM for Nexas phones would be out in the next couple months.

Xi3 showed off the prototype hardware for what is soon to become a derivation of the Steambox.  The box, currently code named “Pisten”, is based on one of the exiting models of computers.  The ports and design is not yet completely final.
