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.

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.
