Is there an app for that? If I hear those words spoken again in the next month, I might punch someone. My ire is due to the fact that it was me asking it over and over at CES this year, because, well, there is an app for everything. Literally. I mean, trees have their own apps now. Apps to keep tabs on their leaf count, and what that little pine tree down the street is doing later... I kid, but an app for a screen protector would seem frivolous certainly, but in this case, it is actually face-meltingly awesome! The apps in question are the free EyeFly3DVid and EyeFly3DImg, and they go with the Eyefly3D ($26.95) screen protector that will turn your iPhone (and soon iPad) screen into glasses-free 3D. I do not lie when I say this time that there is an... I just can't say it!
The forthcoming iRing from IK Multimedia will let you control two of their music apps via hand gestures. But according to a report on CNET, they're encouraging developers to use this technology in games, health and fitness software, and other mobile apps. The iRing interacts with your FaceTime camera, and controls your device when you move your hand up and down, left and right, or twist it.
Plenty of Kickstarts here at CES, and Lunecase ($35.00) is one coming worthy of note. Not satisfied with designing merely yet another iPhone case, the Concepter team (also with a succesful LED add-on flash device called iBlazr) created the Lunecase. The circular open area around the Apple logo flashes green when you get a call, and the LED uses phone EM to power the diode—ultimate coolness! Now, you might think you do not need to be that, um, flashy, but You would be wrong, especially if you often put your phone on mute and miss calls. The Lunecase can alert you, and you therefore will not miss that call from the President (should it come.) Anyway, look for this product on Kickstarter soon (sign up for alerts at link above). Read on to see the $59 iBlazr if you been looking for an external flash.
Let's see... There is a food sensor that detects nitrates in fruit and vegetables, a radioactivity sensor to detect gamma radiation. Also coming this year, a UV sensor to protect you from too much sun. Iterium has you mostly covered from harm (at least from nitrates or radiation hazards.)
There appears to be no end to the ways you can make music through a Bluetooth connection here at CES. The Clio ($349) is a 24W 2.1 speaker product that uses tiny actuators to conduct sound through a clear convex pane of acrylic.
Braven just introduced a massively powerful new outdoor, rugged speaker at this year’s CES. Called the BRV-X ($229.00), it's designed to withstand almost any abuse that an outdoor adventurer may subject it to, with considerable shock/drop/water protection. The BRV-X is truly a force to be reckoned with, and between its thunderous sound and Herculean design, it ranks as one of the best outdoor Bluetooth speakers I've ever seen or heard.
Already well-known as makers of some of the best battery equipped iPhone cases, Mophie just debuted a truly forward thinking and one-of-a-kind battery case this week at CES.
Smarter security devices are the wave and rage of CES this year. The Canary ($199 pre-order) is a small, portable device that practically bristles with sensors through which you remotely monitor your home.There is a wide-angle HD camera that automatically detects motion (through an I/R sensor) and will record activity over a 130 degree area of view; a temp, humidity and air quality sensor; and much more. Read on for more information on this power-packed and iOS-integrated security gadget.
I'm a big fan of the Pebble SmartWatch as one of the early backers on Kickstarter. So I was anxious to see their announcement at CES yesterday. But frankly, it was a letdown. As I mentioned, I like my Pebble. I wear it almost everyday and appreciate that I can get text messages and caller ID on it. I appreciate the magnetic charging capability and the fact that the battery lasts about a week.
I like things that are simple. No wires, no fussy setup and updates. Just plug it in and press play. Korus is producing speaker technology to go head to head with other boutique wireless speaker products, and doing so without annoying lag or cumbersome setup. The V600 ($449.99), and V400 ($349) speakers were both on display at the show, and we got an up-close look and listen of these attractive new speakers. The sound of course was as superb as touted (as much as listening to them on the show floor is possible), but the cool thing is that they use neither Bluetooth nor WiFi to stream, but a frequency-hopping algorithm patented by their engineering team.

"Have you ever tried to run with your iPhone in your pocket? It's more awkward than running with scissors. Your phone smacks against your thigh during every step or worse, falls out every few feet. Running with your device in hand is not much better. The headphone cord flops everywhere, and your hand is uncomfortable the entire time. The first step to taking your iPhone or iPod Touch on a run (please don't run with your iPad) is securing it to your body. Armbands can take a little getting used to (it feels slightly like running with a blood pressure cuff) but they are definitely much better than keeping your iPhone or iPod Touch in your pocket. Here are some solutions I've tried out..."

Both provide the best protection you can buy. The Ballistic provides five layers of protection. The Otterbox provides three. However, the three layers are all that's needed for most people.
