Razer Forge TV hands-on: Android TV-based gaming supercharged

Razer Forge TV hands-on: Android TV-based gaming supercharged

This week at CES 2015, Razer brought their first Android TV product to the masses. With a dedicated wireless gaming controller that doubles as a media remote (Razer Serval) as well as a wireless gaming keyboard (Razer Turret) made for the couch-surfing gamer, there's no mistaking the fact that Razer is aiming its cannons directly toward the living room this year. With the Forge TV, Razer is preparing to put the likes of Amazon Fire TV, Google's Nexus Player, and Apple TV on notice.

Hands-on with Mophie’s iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Juice Packs

Hands-on with Mophie’s iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Juice Packs

When it comes to smartphone accessories, cases and battery packs probably rank right up there at the top, probably next to earphones. Of course, combining the two is, in many cases, a very good deal. And when it comes to such battery cases, there is probably no other more trusted name than Mophie. Here at CES 2015, the battery case maker unsurprisingly revealed not two but three new products designed for the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus and we get to take a hands-on of these deceptively large packs.

CES Day 4: webOS is back, and we play Ouija printing!

CES day four (technically day 3, but we’re counting Monday’s pre-event as a day anyway) brought a lot of fun little gadgets and toys. There was more VR, some point-and-shoot cameras, and even a printer that’s not a printer. More Internet of Things stuff was announced, and in case you weren’t sure, SD cards are NFC-capable, now. The car of the future drove into our hearts, and we got a quick look at the light bulb that might make you less cranky in the morning.

Virtuix Omni eyes-on: walk into VR

Virtuix Omni eyes-on: walk into VR

Ever feel like jumping into the game and taking over? It's somewhat made possible now with Virtuix Omni - a VR gaming platform that integrates you, the player, into the game. Fascination and astonishment was the vibe that surrounded the gaming booth at CES 2015. Launched on Kickstarter back in 2013, Omni has annihilated their $150,000 goal with over $1 million dollars in funding. Omni was on the floor last year at CES still in development stages, but this time it's here and ready to be picked up. Check out how this VR platform left impressions.

Here are Audi’s Open webOS and Android Wear watches in action

Here are Audi’s Open webOS and Android Wear watches in action

Audi’s foray into smartwatches has kicked off some confusion here at CES, over whether the car company is working on Open webOS or Android Wear. Turns out, the answer is "both". SlashGear sat down with Audi’s engineers responsible for both projects, to take a walk through the “Secure Key” project that will allow phones and smartwatches from multiple manufacturers to wirelessly start the car, locate it in distant parking lots, and even loan virtual keys to colleagues and friends. Read on for a full demo of both Audi’s LG Open webOS watch and its Android Wear counterpart.

Canon Powershot SX610, SX710, & SX530 hands-on

Here at CES 2015, we got our hands on Canon’s newest Powershot point-and-shoot cameras. their SX610 offers an 18x optical zoom via the 25-450mm lens, while the SX710 gets even more detailed with a 30x zoom from a 25-750mm lens. If you’re in need of more, the SX530 is about as good as a pocketable camera gets with 50x zoom from a 24-1200mm lens. All offer Canon’s Intelligent IS for image stabilization for a “virtually shake-free” shot.

Immersis wants to beat Xbox to IllumiRoom VR gaming

Immersis wants to beat Xbox to IllumiRoom VR gaming

"This is just a model, the real thing will be much bigger," Immersis' enthusiastic booth team helpfully points out about its diorama, a tiny stem of 3D print-out to represent the immersive projector tech it's hoping will score it a place in living rooms. They're not kidding around, either: assuming the Kickstarter due to open later this year gets traction, the final Immersis VR projector will tower over the back of your couch, spraying the walls around your TV with an expanded gaming experience. It's not the first time we've seen attempts to break out of the TV bezel, but Immersis' approach is particularly ambitious.

Zuta Labs’ robo printer is post-post-paper: hands-on

Zuta Labs’ robo printer is post-post-paper: hands-on

It may be a post-paper world in theory, but in practice a printer is all too often required, but what if it could - like a tiny autonomous car - roam around the page rather than sit in a corner of the office looking ugly? Zuta Labs promised just that last year, a palm-sized mobile printing robot small enough to drop in a desk drawer or a bag, and yet capable of spitting out a page of text and graphics from your laptop, smartphone, or tablet. Rather than shuffling the paper through a slot, however, the little printing robot does all the movement. With working printers now in hand, I caught up with the Zuta Labs team at CES to find out more.

Noke Bluetooth lock hands-on: forget keys forever

Remember Noke? The bluetooth lock made a more than respectable showing on Kickstarter, where they ended up annihilating their $100,000 goal on the way to $652,828 in funding. All that extra cash meant stretch goals were reached, but it also meant they had funds to show their wares off at CES this week! The keyless lock had us interested from the start, and we stopped by their booth to check it out. turns out, some Kickstarter dreams really do come true.

Golf R Touch hands-on: VW’s dashboard of the near future

Golf R Touch hands-on: VW’s dashboard of the near future

Bendable displays and fully touch-sensitive dashboards are the dreams of the future, but what are we to do in the meantime while engineers and designers frantically work on the next automotive gimmick? Volkswagen's Golf R Touch represents a return to sensibility and practicality, without really giving up on the visions of tomorrow. Employing the latest of touch and haptic technologies, the concept car's dashboard still manages to wow us while still presenting something that's familiar and useful, injecting an ample amount of hi-tech wizardry without going overboard.
