Well, the show floor at CES finally opened today and the crowds turned out in force. And along with a few individual post items from today, here’s our daily roundup of the stuff that caught our attention the most:
Power Shot for PlayStation Move
In between the legions of tablets and 3D-related devices, there were a few pieces of good gaming hardware, such as this nifty rifle for the PlayStation Move system. The Power Shot for Move has a tentative shipping target of March, but no price is yet available.
Speakal, the folks who brought us the iPig, are headed down a slightly less whimsical path with their CES offering that merges telephone and computer. The BTS8 has a 5-inch screen, runs Windows 7, and has a webcam for Skype video calls.
Recon Instruments Goggles
You might remember the GPS-enabled goggles we told you about a few months ago? Well, apparently that was only the beginning. The next-generation goggles from Recon Instruments have the same GPS qualities, but add Android as a platform, allowing for third party apps. They’re also promising Bluetooth to connect to your phone and media player.
Yes, the Razer Switchblade gaming device is still just a concept, but one too cool not to mention. The idea is to have two 7-inch touchscreens, with the lower one overlaid with dynamic keys that can represent different actions in different games. I suspect there are more than a few on-the-go gamers who are hoping this device actually makes it to market.
Sony HDR-TD10 3D Camcorder
Our own John P. went hands on with Sony’s newest HD 3D camcorder and he says it’s beautiful. He said looking at the viewscreen (which delivers a no-glasses-required 3D image) was like looking through a pane of glass at something on the other side. In other words, a completely convincing 3D image capture. It’s expected to ship in April with a price of $1500.
That wraps up our highlights for Thursday. Check back tomorrow and throughout the day for more CES 2011 coverage!
