Third day of CES was about seeing as much as we possibly could. Before going, everyone said “you can’t do all of CES in two days,” and boy, did we want to prove them wrong.

We didn’t, for what it’s worth.

Our second “official” day of the Consumer Electronics Show saw us getting around to more booths and halls than we thought, and we’ve seen all the halls in the main area, and one in the not-so-main area at the Hilton, but this show is spread out over so many buildings, that we would need a jetpack, teleportation device, and just about every fictional transportation gadget there is to make our way around.

Sadly, we’re not in the future – not that far – but the recap below, that’s what we did on day three for GadgetGuy’s team!

 

Have woken up a touch late today. Still not really used to Las Vegas time. Will be cabbing to the centre shortly.

Not sure if this will be our last day at the show, but here goes GadgetGuy’s Day Three of CES 2013!

image
Looking at the Pentax Q10. Lots of colours.

image

It’s a tiny little thing.

image

And it’s bloody small compared with these Pentax medium format cameras

image

I don’t even know what this is. Some new 360 degree camera concept from Ricoh.

Swann appears to have a few cameras.

image

And some helicopters. Toy helicopters.

image

That’s one big telescope.

image

Found a headphone brand not in Australia yet. Audiofly. Looks interesting. Made by musicians.

image

Oh look.  More hello kitty.

11 out of 13 cameras Samsung is releasing in Australia will have WiFi

image

Both touch and physical controls on the 20.3 megapixel nx300

image

Looks awesome in brown. Very retro

So it turns out AudioFly is available in Australia. In fact, it’s Australian.

Back to live blogging. Have been seeing lots of tech, and doing lots of walking.

image

Audi has an amazing stand. Filled with light.

image

Looks like this, except bright. You know that scene from The Matrix with the white room for loading in? Like that.

image

Unlike The Matrix though, it has this inside.

image

A close up of that Audi race car.

image

Something neat for the camera nuts: a Bluetooth camera trigger controllable from an iOS device.

image

And a way to strap an iphone to your chest. First person filming and all.

image

… And yet more Hello Kitty. I’m beginning to think it’s following me.

image

Aussie microphone company Rode has something very cool: a new plugin mic for the iphone and ipad. Older docking connector, not Lightning, though we’ve been told it’s compatible with the adaptor.

image

It works with dslrs and there’ll be a shoe mount coming that also turns it into a pistol style mic

image

and anyone want an 8k TV? Sharp had one

image

Now over at TCL learning about their TVs. This is the Blade.

image

Neat remote on that

image

Google TV will come to Australia through TCL

With voice control

image

I case you’re curious,  it works quite well.

image

Here’s something cool. TCL’s Ultra Surface in 55 inches. It’s a touch screen TV. Reasonably responsive too.

image

That’s one big keyboard.

image

The computer is apparently in the TV, though I’m trying to find out what sort of chip. Intel I think, though not sure what.

And it can be linked up.

image

This is a different TV with a smart pen. Software’s built into the TV.

image

This is a 24 inch multitouch LCD which will cost $399 locally, runs on Android.

image

Iron Man is standing in front of a 110 inch UDTV.

image

This is a smart window. You can even black out the screen using software to give yourself privacy.

image

That Smart Window technology is being used in a fridge.

image

Here’s something I want: a Red Epic.

image

Toshiba 4K UDTVs

Here are a few more things from today’s experience at the show…

image

Iron Man is shorter than I expected. And still just as fictional.

image

That’s Samsung’s massive 4k screen. It is really big.

image

I didn’t even if it yesterday, but Samsung’s curved OLED is also very nice.

I mean to say I didn’t see it yesterday. Autocorrect is evil this week.

image

TCL has a TV in a briefcase. Because you can. You could go camping with this thing and watch the footy. Or The Big Bang Theory. Whatever you want, really.

image

Now that’s what I call an open and shut case. *ducks*

image

This one intrigued me today. It’s a Samsung fridge with a reconfigurable freezer section, which is fine, but what exactly is “anti-virus protection” on a refrigerator?

image

We don’t get RCA in Australia, but this is an alarm clock which plays music off your phone. Not through Bluetooth, NFC, WiFi, or a dock, but from how it was explained to me, some form of speaker enhancement, possibly to do with magnets.

image

The G-Shock is now Bluetooth. I repeat, the Casio G-Shock is now Bluetooth. I think we’ve all owned one of these.

image

Not sure if I’ve posted this, but this is Samsung’s 45mm f1.8 lens with 3d for the new NX300.

image

It’s only compatible at the moment with the new NX camera, but it has two shutter mechanisms inside so it can grab 3d images in real time. It is very clever engineering.

image

Umm… One Direction bits and pieces. Well I guess it’s not more Hello Kitty.

…and that’s really it for today. I’m pretty sure we’re going back tomorrow, though this journo – can’t speak for the others – has explored most of the halls. I just want to find some uber cool things to finish on!

image

See you tomorrow!
