[email protected]:Military style night vision for your car, boat, house…

by Marc

FLIR systems make a range of night vision cameras that can be added to your boat (pictured), car or used in a security context. FLIR (Forward Looking Infra Red) cameras let you see in total darkness. I can see this being handy in some situations, such as marine navigation – they don’t exactly put street lights on the ocean! It’s also offered as an aftermarket addon for cars. FLIR systems …

[email protected]: Sports scores, wherever you are

Ambient Devices have some very cool technology. We’ve already seen the Internet enabled umbrella, but now they also have something for sports fans. The Ambient Football ScoreCast and Baseball ScoreCast look a lot like portable weather stations, only instead of giving you a weather forecast they display up to date information on (American) football and baseball scores. The information is pulled from a nationwide wireless network that reaches 90% of …

by Marc


So I’m in a hotel room, trying to write up what I’ve seen at CES this year. I’m using the same HP core2 duo laptop I used last year, only this year it’s been "upgraded" from XP to Vista.

by Marc


Magellan have refreshed their consumer hand held GPS lineup by taking the colour touch screen technology seen in automotive GPS systems and combining it with a ruggedised, waterproof case. "Waterproof" in this context meaning it’s too heavy to float, but it is rated to IPX 7 so it should take an accidental dunking for a few minutes with no ill effects. The result is a range of units. The basic …

[email protected]: Crap at Guitar Hero? Practice on the Move with Air Guitar

by Al

Air Guitar

After the official day one of CES 2008 I think this has to be my coolest gadget of CES so far, Guitar Hero Air Guitar Rocker, practice playing any place, any time. Air Guitar Rocker is officially licensed with Guitar Hero but you don’t need to own Guitar Hero to play. Simply wear the supplied ‘heavy metal’ belt buckle, attach it to the included processor thingie and you’re good to …
