CES 2008: SkullCandy iPhone FMJ headphones

CES 2008: SkullCandy iPhone FMJ headphones

They are marketing them for the iPhone, but they work with several other phones too and even have a cool feature they showed me at the booth, but the feature only works on the BlackBerry Curve, so they said. But they look like a normal pair of high-end SkullCandy earbuds, the only difference is that they have a microphone and a call/end switch.

They come with a few different ear inserts and a case and they have their usual noise-isolating technology built in. I am pretty sure they said that the call/end button also acts as a play/pause button too.

Anyways, the cool feature for the BlackBerry Curve that they showed me is that if you hold down the call/end button for a few seconds you can voice dial. If you want a pair, they aren’t high end by any means, but they are better than the stock earbuds by a lot and at $89.95 they are well worth it.

No designated driver needed with the Chevy Tahoe self-driving vehicle

No designated driver needed with the Chevy Tahoe self-driving vehicle

If you're going to win the DARPA autonomous vehicle challenge, you've got to be pretty clever; even so, when General Motors (GM) invited the SlashGear CES team to be passengers in their Chevy Tahoe self-driving SUV, there was a little apprehension about giving up the keys to a robot! Of course, we shouldn't have been worried: with 25 sensors, including five radar units giving a 360-degree view of its surroundings, two lasers from specialist Continental and GPS, all feeding data about the driving environment and any potential obstacles into advanced behavior algorithms, the Tahoe had more eyes on the road than the team did!

CES2008 : LG 1080p SXRD Projector Hidden in the Dark

Ewdison reported a surprising find at CES 2008, a SXRD 1080p projector from LG? It’s huge and too dark to tell but it’s a SXRD alright except it’s not coming from Sony but LG. Apparently LG quietly joins the club of SXRD projector unannounced, alone and hidden in a dark showroom. Poor thing needs to get noticed! The AF115 uses industry best Silicon Optic HQV image processor with specs of 1300 lumens and dynamic CR of 30,000 : 1. Without the price and availability in hand, it’s hard to compare to the newest $15k Sony VW200 SXRD but get these, it’s has an extremely low fan noise of 18db and comes with ISF certified.

CES 2008: Ricoh Printers

Ricoh showed off a new printer to me this week from it’s new Aficio SP C222DN series. It’s a color laser printer and I while I’ve never used a Ricoh printer, I do use a Ricoh copier and it’s amazing and it gives a perfectly clear image everytime. I, personally, have never had any trouble with Ricoh products.
