Solo videographers and extreme sports junkies wanting to record their adventures could have some robot assistance later in the year, in the shape of the Jigabot robotic auto-framing system. Resembling a Beatles-style yellow submarine, the rotating, swiveling mount takes your GoPro, point-and-shoot camera, or compact camcorder and - thanks to a compact dongle that clips onto your jacket - tracks you as you move around the frame.
Corsair was here at CES showing off some goodies. There was quite a few items sitting on display and there was talk of the Raptor K40 gaming keyboard as well as the Raptor M45 gaming mouse.

Having a peek at one of the cutest devices we’ve seen pop up at CES 2014 this week we’ve seen the SteelSeries Stratus Wireless Gaming Controller - made for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. While we’re to understand that this device works with Bluetooth, it’s also limited to those devices that work with Lightning cables.

Remote control lights like Philips hue may allow you to change the color of your environment, but LightingScience claims its bulbs actually improve the quality of it.
