CES 2011: LG Knows Visual Sensory Overload

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

LG’s booth sure knows how to entice techies.  Dozens of screens show motion-flow video as well as TV and movie clips.  Look closely and you’ll see my favorite TV show “The Office”.  Just don’t blink.

LG also showed off this really impressive touchpen multiboard for use with their PZ850 & 950 series.  Users can seemlessly control windows on the screen with unique pens that respond to the touchscreen.

CES 2011: GM EN-V

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

This automotive gizmo puts the “Johnny Cab” from the movie “Total Recall” to shame.  General Motors released a prototype of their GM EN-V.  This is an automated, two person seated, GPS controlled vehicle.  It reaches speeds of up to 25 mph.  While not entirely fast, the benefits of such transportation are said to revolutionize urban transportation.  With built-in collision avoidance systems, it communicates with other cars and can predict accidents by adjusting speed or stopping completely.  The unit runs on two electric motors powered by lithium-ion phosphate batteries which can be charged via a plug in the wall.

Check the video to see it in action:

CES 2011: The nPower Peg

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

Lots of us have so much energy it seems like we don’t know what to do with it.  The geniuses at nPower have devised a little gadget that helps us put our over-anxiousness to good use: the nPower Peg.  This little device is a backup battery charger for hand held devices.  As you walk, run, jog or even ride your bike, the movements from your body provide energy for its internal battery.  If you are in a pinch and need battery life, just shake the heck out of it for a few moments and you will have enough power to make a phone call.  Definitely a little device to keep an eye out for.
