The best of the CES show is often not on the beaten path. One key vendor we make sure to lock in on every year is the Imagination Technologies meeting rooms in South Hall at CES 2015 (way back in the corner). These guys are one of a select number of innovators that design the low-power, system on chip (SoC) technology needed to run our smart homes, smart cars, and smart mobile devices.
Keeping tabs on little ones can be a full-time job. Turn your head for a minute, and they can almost magically disappear and get into trouble (and if you were ever lost in a store as a kid, you understand). These days, there are smart sensors to keep tabs on everything, including your younglings, and the HereO GPS watch ($179.99) is an example of some of the kid-friendly, protective tech we were able to check out at CES 2015.
The newest smart lens from Kodak, the PIXPRO SL5, debuted at CES this week. We got to sit down with the Kodak team and get the full scoop on this impressive iPhoneography accessory. After hearing all about what this little lens can do, and seeing it put through its paces, it was apparent that we were looking at a product that was well deserving of our iPhone Life Magazine Best of CES award.
The Philips Fidelio NC1L on-ear headphones with Active Noise Cancellation ($299.00) made waves at this year's CES, touting a direct digital connection to your iDevice via Apple's Lightning port. Even though Apple (quietly) announced support for this headphone feature earlier last year, few companies have taken advantage of this connective potential, not even Apple's own headphone company, Beats by Dre. The ability of the NC1L to establish a direct, 24-bit, Digital to Analog Conversion (DAC) is impressive enough. Couple that with the fact that the NC1L draw power for their Active Noise Cancellation from your iPhone or iPad and it's no wonder that these amazing sounding cans are the recipients of iPhone Life Magazine's Best of CES award.
We were given a demo of the new Zuli Smartplug system ($135-3 Pak/$50 for single) at CES 2015. The first production units should start shipping next week. The Zuli smartplug can turn any electrical device into a smart appliance. You simply plug it into a wall socket and your appliance, and you can monitor and control your devices remotely (to include power utilization.) The included app also works with your Nest!
Lifeproof's newest waterproof case for the iPhone 6 debuted at CES 2015 and incorporates a built-in external battery (a first for the Lifeproof brand) which doubles the iPhone 6's battery life, while preserving Lifeproof's highest standards of insulation, protection, and durability. The frē Power as it is called, won iPhone Life Magazine's prestigious Best of CES award, and with good reason.
The autonomous, intelligent ZANO drone is designed to sense and avoid obstacles and is perfect for anyone new to drone piloting, or anyone interested in putting a drone to good use as a flying, selfie-taking, remote aerial vehicle.
Congratulations go out to Ōlloclip, winners for two consecutive years now, of iPhone Life's Best of CES Award. Ōlloclip has continued to impress with their lens attachments for the iPhone and iPad. With an Ōlloclip lens, an iDevice's great and handy camera is transformed into a tool worthy of any professional photographer. The new Ōlloclip 4-in-1 lens ($79.99) for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is no exception.
If you have had a sick baby, then you know how terrible you feel to have to wake them up to check their temperature. With Blue Spark's TempTraq you can do it easily and remotely, and all you need is your iPhone and an ingenious smart sensor which adheres under your little one's arm. We were able to get a demo of this new monitoring tech at the Sands Expo booth at CES 2015.
I loved the sound and comfort level of the new Wearhaus ARC headphones. I found theem over in the Sands Tech Expo area at CES 2015 (booth 75045). Though they do look cool with the flashing color-changing lights on the earpiece, the innovation extends beyond mere looks. Well-made material with smart wireless features set these $199 Kickstarted (and successfully funded) headphones apart.
