This piece of equipment works with 1 Type B USB port for input and 7 Type A USB ports for output. You can stack the unit up as high as you want, and each unit interlocks with the next.

This is Audi’s custom car-controlling LG smartwatch

This is Audi’s custom car-controlling LG smartwatch

The automotive status symbol may no longer be the fob on your keyring but the smartwatch on your wrist, and we’ve got up close with the LG-made wearable Audi casually revealed during its CES keynote. R&D chief Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg used the watch to summon a self-driving Prologue to the stage, the touchscreen timepiece similar in appearance to LG’s existing circular-screened Android Wear model, but updated to suit the German marque’s automotive needs. Audi exclusively demonstrated the new smartwatch to SlashGear, and explained to me why it’s more than just a G Watch R with a custom skin.

Razer OSVR headset hands-on: a platform, not a competitor

Razer OSVR headset hands-on: a platform, not a competitor

The teams at Oculus Rift, Samsung, Google, and the rest need not worry - Razer isn't really gunning for them with the VR headset you're about to see here. Instead, this unit is part of a long-term plan for Razer in which their software is utilized by other companies - in other words, this isn't a headset you're going to be buying in a store any time soon. The model we're seeing and using here is just the first step in a long-term plan by Razer to make their big play in the ever-expanding virtual reality ecosystem.

CES Day 2: Dell drops bombs, Simplicam knows who you are

CES, day two! After the opening day fireworks, things have mostly calmed down — but there were some big surprises today, too. If anything, today can be considered Dell-day at CES, with their unveiling of a series of high-end products that actually made us take a step back. From tablets to laptops down to displays, Dell took the cake on day two, but they had company. Toshiba showed up to unveil some new products, and we even got news of some incoming Android Auto and CarPlay receivers.

The people you see here aren't just playing virtual volleyball with each other, they're interacting with another user from the AltspaceVR staff using a headset at their headquarters in California.

Walkerwheel 350 electric unicycle hands-on

Walkerwheel 350 electric unicycle hands-on

There's more than one self-balancing electric unicycle here at CES 2015 - you didn't think you'd get away with only seeing one, did you? Here we're seeing the lesser-known KOEOK bring the heat with their Walkerwheel 350, a super simple vision for the future of self-transport. While we can't say too much about how well this beast is going to barrel down the road in the field, we can say this: we'd love to have one to get through this convention center with all speed.

The new Dell XPS laptops are slim, pixel-dense beasts

At CES, Dell is hitting hard with a full lineup of exciting new products, and their updated XPS 13 and 15-inch laptops might be the coolest we’ve seen so far. The super-slim laptops also pack a punch with an astounding screen and amazingly slight bezel. Dell also says the XPS 13 is the “best performing notebook of its size”, and sports a 15-hour run time on a single charge. They’ve also got 5th generation Intel Core processors, and the 13-inch model weighs a mere 2.6 pounds.

Dell Venue 8 7000 tablet packs Intel RealSense depth-finding camera

Dell has rolled out their Venue 8 7000 series tablet today, taking a bold step toward Android tablet prowess. Featuring a “series of firsts”, the Dell Venue 8 7000 is based on the Intel Atom Z3500 processor, and checks in at a remarkably thin 6mm. Dell didn’t cut corners when they cut weight, though. The Venue 8 7000 packs a 2560 x 1600 OLED display. It’s also the first tablet to integrate the new Intel RealSense camera, which provides enhanced depth sensing technology.

Inmotion v3 Electric Unicycle hands-on: self-balancing and smooth

Inmotion v3 Electric Unicycle hands-on: self-balancing and smooth

The third version of the Inmotion Electric Unicycle is here, and it's a much smoother experience than the rest of the self-balancing unicycles we've used in the recent past. Which is silly to say because it's not like we use self-balancing unicycles all that often - or ever. Inmotion basically has the market cornered. Here at CES 2015, at least, there's really nothing like it. Riding around on a unit that lets you turn with a flick of your hip - that's the future of one-wheeled transportation.

Qualcomm and QNX tag-team the dashboard of the future

Qualcomm and QNX tag-team the dashboard of the future

Someone at Qualcomm has the right idea: buy a brand spanking new Maserati, fit it out with the latest in QNX-running, Snapdragon-powered infotainment, and call it a business expense. The company brought its latest concept for the connected dashboard to CES 2015 for the first time, pairing the Snapdragon 602A car-centric chipset with BlackBerry-owned QNX's latest entertainment, safety, speech recognition, and gesture control systems. Qualcomm's argument is that, if next-gen automotive dashboards really are going to gain traction, it'll take a company with a strong presence in chips to push it, and that's why it thinks its 360-degree watching, radar toting prototype will prove convincing.
