Modular Robotics Cubelets

Modular Robotics’ Cubelets in robot form

A walk around Eureka Park at CES will always lead you to something new and exciting that will make you literally want to put your hands on it. Modular Robotics was no exception, as their namesake product allowed us to do just that. The company has created a line of blocks that all have little computer chips inside them that allow them to act and react to each other. Using blocks such as sensors, rollers, blinking lights, motors and more, you can build any type of creation you want, and then even program the blocks yourself to do things you want it to do. These cool gadgets are for ages 6-60 and are a great stocking stuffer or birthday present for anyone, young or old. You’ll want to see what we created in the video.

Meet Luci: The Inflatable, Solar-Powered, LED Lantern

Monday, April 1st, 2013

Luci Lantern by MPOWERED

Luci, a solar-powered, inflatable, LED lantern by MPOWERED

Meet Luci. She’s an inflatable, portable, extremely lightweight, life-saving solar-powered LED lantern. Why life-saving? Well, for starters, for every lantern we purchase here, one Luci will be donated to a developing country to literally give them light. Founder and CEO of MPOWERED, Jacques-Philippe Piverger, talks about Luci and how she proved to be an effective tool not only during the power outages in NYC but even in developing countries that usually depend on dirty and costly fuel for energy. Luci has been such a success, in fact, that she’s reached the top spot in Amazon’s outdoor and camping category, after just only two months of being on shelves. It was really a pleasure talking to Jacques-Philippe as you could really feel the passion for his product and for the cause during the interview. It’s one of the many great things about Eureka Park at CES.

i-Mego is a CES 2013 Innovations Awards winner who specializes in really high quality headphones that don’t break the bank.

Getting into the Innovations Awards winner, i-Mego has created the Stone earbuds, which are kind of like an on-stage in-ear monitor but has four different shapes that fit almost anyone’s ear.

Toshiba Really Brings the Ultra with New Line of Ultrabooks

Toshiba's Ultrabooks

Toshiba’s Ultrabooks

Toshiba showed off some of the sleekest ultrabooks we’ve seen at any CES to date that weren’t just prototypes. I was able to put my hands on four different models, ranging from a 21:9 aspect ratio ultrabook made for watching movies without having any bars on the sides, to a really great convertible that maintains the battery life we’ve been expecting to find in ultrabooks today. Toshiba also introduced their first touchscreen at a very affordable price, proving that the big companies are really onboard with the Windows 8 user experience.

ION Duo Deck Portable Turntable

ION Duo Deck Portable Turntable

ION introduced a bunch of products at the 2013 International CES. Some of the highlights include the DuoDeck, which is small and extremely portable turntable, where the vinyl record is larger than the device itself. This gadget is great for sampling, runs on batteries or USB power and needs no additional wires or drivers to work.

Something else ION debuted at CES was AirCopy, a world’s first and something that makes you wonder why it wasn’t invented sooner. It’s a wireless scanner that generates its own Wi-Fi network so users can send any image over to their tablet or computer without needing to connect to an actual Internet network, or without having to load them into a computer, then sideload them to a mobile device. Call up the app from any device, slide the document in and off you go. It simply runs off a rechargeable battery that can charge via USB and gives you about four hours of use time in about half the time to charge and it works across almost every platform, iOS, Android and Windows Phone.

Gorilla Glass 3.0 with Native Damage Resistance

Gorilla Glass 3.0 with Native Damage Resistance

Each year Corning tries to outperform its previous class of Gorilla Glass. With 2.0 at the 2012 International CES, we thought they couldn’t do one better, but this year we were proven wrong. Of course, with Gorilla Glass, it’s all about the live demo, but here’s a quick rundown. The new Gorilla Glass 3.0 with Native Damage Resistance (NDR) can be made as thin as .5 nanometers and up to 2nm and is able to withstand scratches of over 7 Newton of force and critical loads of up to 15,000 grams before cracks will start to appear.

Corning says that the glass should be available to over one billion devices moving forward. So, if you’re in the market for a new phone in the coming year, be sure to be on the lookout for one with the toughest glass to-date on protecting that precious screen.
