The 12 gadgets that will shape the year – the very best of CES 2013

By Stefano on January 14th, 2013

So CES, the world’s biggest consumer electronics show, has been and gone for another year. And what a blast it was too. In some respects it was the most interesting show in a while, largely because it saw a lot of new emerging technologies from smart watches through to high-end 4k TV sets.

Along with our pals at Tech Digest we have gone through the hundreds, make that thousands, of products and picked 12 that we think will be then ones that will shape 2013.

I don’t think any will have the impact of say the Apple iPad, Amazon Kindle or even Samsung’s early 3D TV sets, but they provide a template which a number of makers will take and refine to deliver the iconic gadgets of the future.

Without further ado then – here is our top twelve.

12 Sony Walkman W273

Sony used CES 2013 to highlight how it has re-invented an old friend. It is reviving the Walkman in the guise of the W273 - an MP3 player for active types. The lightweight player is waterproof too so you can take it swimming. It has 4 Gig of storage, works with iTunes and each battery charge gives you eight hours of power.

By Stefano on January 8th, 2013

Day two of CES – the world’s biggest gadget show – is the time when the big companies unveil their latest wares to journalists and bloggers. This year, with no real presence from Microsoft I(or Apple for that matter who never go to the show) the spotlight fell on Samsung and Sony and both have delivered intriguing new products.

Samsung claims to have re-invented the TV while Sony has revived an old friend the Walkman. Also new on day two was an innovative paper based tablet PC, a Bluetooth dongle that should ensure you never lose your phone again and a very cool wearable camera.

This is the biggie - the TV set that might define how we interact with tellies in the future. This LCD set is available in sizes from 40" to 75" and is less than a quarter of an inch. However its key feature is its Smarthub interface that replaces the traditional ‘electronic programme guide’, or channel list. It analyses what you watch and makes suggestions as to what you should see next. It also has voice control and users will be able to swipe between screens (there are five presented each time the set is fired up) as they do on tablets or smartphones. No news on launch yet.

CES 2013 – Panasonic’s HX-A100 wearable camera

By Stefano on January 7th, 2013

I wondered how long it would be before a major consumer electronics player got in with a wearable camera that enables the user to record their every step, and true to form Panasonic has got in there first.

Announced at the company’s event at CES in Las Vegas this morning the HX-A100 Wearable Camcorder is designed to let users easily capture and share images of everyday life such as sports and events.

The camera comes with an Earhook that enables users to shoot hands-free without a helmet. There’s also a Multi-Mount option for mounting the camera to a helmet or backpack.

The camera is waterproof has built-in Wi-Fi , so for example users can broadcast live video with simultaneous Full-HD recording or upload recorded images using a smartphone or tablet.

The camera also has host of image-enhancing technologies, including a bright F2.5 lens, the BSI Sensor, and Advanced Image Processing LSI. there’s also an Image Stabilizer to suppress blurring, and a Level Shot function to automatically correct tilted images. Other features include a Wind-cut option and slow-mo video in SD quality. Battery life is a reasonable 140 minutes of shooting on one single battery charge.

So CES 2013 is finally under way. Well it actually kicks off in earnest tonight (UK time) with a lot of the big guys (Sony, Samsung etc al) unveiling their key new 2013 products.

A few companies, including some biggies, have already broken ranks and tipped us off about their latest gizmos. Here then are the best 12 products we have seen so far, and they include some huge smartphones, an outrageous tablet that can moonlight as a coffee table, some clever new cameras and more.

Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC - world's biggest tablet?

Picture 1 of 12

The IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC from Lenovo is a beast of thing. The world's largest tablet (if you can call it that) so far, it is a 27-inch touchscreen PC/tablet hybrid that's as much a coffee table surface as it is a computer. It is a giant Windows 8 slate and you can fold its built-in stand away to lay the device flat, acting like a giant tabletop tablet. You can also carry it around, but at 7.7KG I guess you won't be going too far. It is due in the spring and will cost around £1,500

CES 2013: It is gadgets week at Brandish

By Stefano on January 3rd, 2013

Aaah Las Vegas. Think Sin City and you are probably picturing Elvis in his jump suited burger-addicted 70s prime, Tom Jones cooking up a storm for the laydeez and a thousand British boxing hopefuls returning home with their tales between their legs.

Vegas is, on a slightly less glamorous tip, the home of the convention and every week in every year you can find everyone from pest control experts through to photo copies sales guys nervously wandering their way round the hidden parts of hotels in a bid to check out the latest gear and drum up new business.

The one convention though that even the hard-bitten locals would like to crash is CES, the Consumer Electronics show, which kicks off on Monday. For half a week the convention centre and several nearby hotels are turned into an Aladdin’s cave of gadgets, tellies, intelligent cars and more as the world’s leading tech manufacturers pitch their vision of the future to journos, bloggers, dealers and anoraks.

Over the years the show has witnessed the launch of the digital camera, the MP3 player and more recently smart televisions and oh, the Angry Birds board game. This year promises to be a corker with several new technologies starting to mature and are now ripe for innovation and development.

Away from the aircraft hanger style halls where the big names parade their wares are the smaller halls and the back rooms where enterprising far eastern companies come to pitch their offerings. Sometimes these companies can throw up something that has the big guys looking over their shoulders in that it delivers innovative features, clever operating systems and most important of all ultra competitive prices.

Over the coming week we will be keeping a beady eye on CES rounding up the latest coverage from our sibling sites Tech Digest and Shiny Shiny. It is going to be one hell of a trip.
